Holiday Time.

We are off on a holiday today... 7 weeks of travelling with the boys around the UK, Scotland, America, Switzerland, Germany and Singapore!!! WAHOOOOOO!!! By the way, in re-reading that sentence, I thought I had better make it clear that this is not a normal event in our household, definitely not something we do once a week or anything.... this has taken years of planning.
I will try to blog occasionally but I must apologise in advance as I can't upload photos onto my gadget thingy - would you mind if I wrote letters on the blog for a little while instead? Then when I get back I could load up the matching photos retrospectively.
 At the moment we are doing all of the last minute packing.... Just how many sequinned headbands does one person need? Answer - 3 of course, one in gold, one in silver and one in turquoise. 
The boys are very excited too - constantly examining the different currencies in the new, grown up wallets and making sure I've packed their technology for the plane......
Lots and lots of love to you all,
Kate xxooxx.

Stanley and the Hot Air Balloon - We have a winner!

Congratulations to Louana from nz green buttons, you are the winner of the pre-release copy of the Stanley book. Yay for you.... I hope you like it... and please email me with your details.
Thank you so much to everybody for all of your comments. I feel so supported as it's a little bit scary to come out of your creative shell when you have been making something for such a long time... 
Anyway, I had better finish of dinner but will be back again tomorrow because would you believe that there is even more to talk about.
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.

Stanley and the Hot Air Balloon; The Book Giveaway!

 I can't believe that I finally have a copy of the book in my hands. It's not due for release until July, however.... I have one copy ready for one lucky reader!
This book has been such a labour of love. I started writing it about 4 years ago and now, well now it's sitting on my kitchen table!!!!!
 It is a children's book but there are patterns included too. I love the thought of children reading (or being read to) while cuddling their very only Stanley. I will show you photos of the projects another day.
 So I hope you like this sneak preview. 

To enter, leave a comment in the section below and I will pick a number (randomly through on Monday, 5th May. Good luck!
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.
p.s. This giveaway is available worldwide. The book will be ready for purchase in July and will also be available worldwide via airmail (postage will be a pittance).
