The days are getting colder, the evenings are becoming darker and the street Christmas lights are already up. This only means one thing, Christmas is well and truly on it's way.
We have our doily jar designs and ideas for decorating the studio space in time for the Christmas market stalls ready and raring to go, so our next step is to get the main shop window looking Christmassy too! Last years window, shown above, was a great hit and had people stoping in their paths to take a look and photograph it. So this years will have to be equally as good, if not even better!

This internship keeps getting better and better. Finding out there was space on a book binding class, I decided to give it ago. With straight lines, accuracy and perfecting neat and tidy edges not being my strong points, I knew it would be challenge.

We've also been giving a little helping hand creating little bundles of fabric. 18 fabric designs, all bundled up with a Makery leaflet, tied with string and finished off with a brown label.
They looked so good all laid out like sardines ready to be posted and awarded to the lucky new subscribers to a craft magazine.
Being inspired by the doily jam jars and the almost magical look they have when they are lit up, we had a little creative session and came up with this idea. Quite a simple way of adding some festive cheer and once a little tea light is burning inside it should create a cosy atmosphere too!

Discussing the need to add a touch of Christmas to the upstairs of the The Makery Emporium, ready for the Bath Christmas market, we all joined together and discussed our ideas, sticking with the natural shades that already appear on The Makery's Christmas advertisements.
There are too many words to describe how beautiful and luscious all the crafty bits and bobs are inside The Makery emporium.
Their workshops and classes share some of their creative juices and their shop is one of the few creative treasures that lies within Bath. I am honoured to be starting my internship with them!
When I received an email with information about an internship at The makery, I was apprehensive as to whether I would be the kind of person they would be looking for, but I thought it was an opportunity I couldn't miss out on. After choosing the right outfit, carefully selecting a few pieces of work to show, as requested, I walked into the interview dubious of my chances but confident I would make a positive impression.
Opening an email headed with the word 'congratualations' I found out I had impressed them in my interview and I got the internship. This will be an exciting new journey.
