Let's Get Pretty Nostalgic - Pretty Gorgeous, too!

Only recently did I discover, where have you been, the wonderful publication that is Pretty Nostalgic. 

This is a simply delightful celebration of our past and reminds us to Make Do and Mend, Count Your Blessings, Waste Not Want Not and lots of other advice! The newest edition is now on sale in WH Smiths and independent stockists such as vintage retailers.
 Pretty Nostalgic Magazine

So, check out the website and you can also find them on Facebook here.

I have also bought a copy of a book they produced which is called "Home - Happy Days From Vintage Ways".  

As a paper crafter I have been using images from the book to help create some of my journal embellishments.  

It is like the most wonderful pack of 12 x 12 scrapbooking papers with inspiration that helps me create wonderful paper craft lovelies, and because it is so packed with gorgeousness it will last me an age!

This is my latest journal using extracts from this amazing book.

 Come on everybody, lets get Pretty Nostalgic!

Spring Craft Festival

Well, Saturday was my day at the SaddleworthCreativeNetwork Spring Craft Festival.

I had a great day catching up with friends and meeting some new ones, my cakes and bakes went very well and generally enjoyed myself.

Take a look at my table photos - I absolutely love laying out my table, it's half the fun of the day!

First outing for my new banner!

Made lemonade for the first time and Easter biscuits for the current season were very well received.
Coconut scones were quite popular, another first time product.

If I am honest I am pleased I did not sell all my paper craft items - this is because I now have a box of goodies on my craft table which, once added to, I will be posting out this week. 

The exciting news is that Paper Craft Junkie is about to be one of the suppliers of paper craft lovelies to a new shop opening up in the town of Calne in Wiltshire! Yes, it appears I have been head hunted - through Facebook! The shop is called Pink Chic Boutique and opens on March 30. I look forward to letting you know how I get on with people, hopefully, paying money for my handcrafted items is a shop setting!

For pictures of some of the stall there on Saturday check out my page at Paper Craft Junkie.

Catch you later.x
