This is what I bought.....

eight herbs

Bronze Fennel and two Cotton Lavender

Team Handmade UK

Hello everyone! I hope you have all been keeping well and are all happy little bunnies. I haven't written on my blog for a while so I thought I'd let you know what I've been doing.

I started an online team in February called Team Handmade UK and I have been enjoying getting the team going and working on establishing a presence on Facebook, Flicr, Blogspot and Twitter with the help of our wonderful team members.

Team Handmade UK is a friendly and growing team of artists, crafters and event organisers who live within the UK. We have talented members from all over the UK and it's been great getting to know them all and such a pleasure to help promote their work.

Guess What I've Been Doing?

Have you noticed my blog posts have been rather thin on the ground of late? And that It's been a while since I last made a new PepperPi Pals character? Well...just recently I have been a busy little bee working on a project I have been thinking about for some time....

...on 5th February I started Team Handmade Uk

For a while now, I have wanted to start a friendly, online community of talented artists and crafters who run their own businesses in the UK selling their creations. I finally decided to go for it and now the team is two weeks old...awwww bless, it's just a baby!

We already have a wonderful collective of talented people!...

 Click the photos and you will be taken to our team blog, where you can say hello and find more information about our team, our members and about joining Team Handmade Uk!
You can also find us on Facebook...why don't you drop by and say hi?
