I've decided to make a few changes in my life, they seem quite big for me.

Firstly I'm going natural, in the cleaning department that is.I'm fed up with sneezing every time I clean, yes I know that may be the dust, but I think it's also the chemicals too ! I don't think it will be easy but I've made up my mind and I'll be ordering from here later

The second decision I've made is to sign up to I've dilly dallied about this decision for a very long time.In fact last year I was talking about joining Etsy but I just didn't get around to it.For one thing I just didn't feel computer literate enough to do it.My family are brilliant but I can't keep asking them to help me every time on the computer.The other thing I was worried about, what if no one likes my stuff, how embarrassing! Anyway I've gone for it,I joined Artfire and then it took me a while to pluck up courage and list some stuff! Surprisingly it's quite easy to use, even I can do it!I'm so excited and pleased to have done it,can't believe how much time I wasted just thinking about it.Fingers crossed for a sale in the next few weeks!

Just discovered you from Julia's blog. Bad isn't it how we are never quite sure about our work. I often ask myself the same question.
You don't need to as it all looks fabulous.

Hi there, I am hosting a book swap over on my blog. It is a permanent feature, which will always be on my blog, it is not a one off, like the rose theme swap I'm hosting. I have listed a load of my books which I am willing to swap, take a look, there may be some you fancy. If you would like to list books which you no longer want, and are willing to swap, just contact me at, or leave a comment on my blog, with your name, the name of your blog and the books you wish to swap, and I will type them up and post them on the swap page, so the more and more people who participate, the wider the range of books there will be to choose from, and remember, it will always be there on my blog.
Take Care
Love Melanie xxx

Good luck with the sales, hope all is going well for you, I have to admit I haven't heard of Artfire, thanks for the link. I know what you mean about cleaning products, goodness knows what we're spraying around the place...

Hi that will be great swapping the cleaning products, especially if it helps the sneezing too. I cant stop sneezing atthe moment all this lovely tree pollen everywhere. Out comes the vaseline!. I tend to use bicarb of soda which is good for cleaning and washing up liquid. I will look in to it more though.
By the way all your lovely makes are so pretty , you should be proud of yourself xx Dom
