What's on the jukebox, Jo?

taunton canal

I've spent my first full week in Somerset, unpacking, setting my studio up, acclimatising to my new surroundings, walking along the canal and finally getting going on some gardening and photography. I'm really enjoying being back in the countryside and as a result all week I've had Primal Scream's Country Girl rattling around in my head. Pop it on and have a dance for the weekend is nearly here!

While I'm unpacking ....

If you hadn't already noticed from my Instagram and Twitter profiles, I've recently moved down to Somerset and I'm currently in the throws of setting up my studio, unpacking boxes and trying to find where I put that......yeah, the joys of moving yourself and a business hey!

As soon as I'm set up, I'm taking a much needed holiday for a week. So, life on the blog is a little quiet until I'm back and raring to go on Monday 30th May! In the mean time, have a catch up on my blog. You can read all about how to get your creative mojo back on, how to go on an adventure, top tips for planning a fab tea party and also get inspired by finding out all about the faces behind some awesome blogs! Enjoy reading and don't worry my online shops will be open again on Sunday 29th May, leaving you plenty of time to order for Father's Day. And don't forget to follow me on Instagram for behind the scenes glimpses of life away from the studio :-)

What's on the jukebox, Jo?

behind the scenes

I'm currently in shock. Today was my last day at my part time job and as of next week I am officially a full time designer/maker and freelance blogger. I cannot believe that the long hard road to get to this point is finally here. At times I thought it would never happen. I think I'm going to be pinching myself for weeks asking myself if it's true.

While I acclimatize to all this, I'm going to be taking a much needed break because not only am I going full time on my business but I am also moving house for a fresh start on a personal level. So, as of Wednesday it's bye-bye to Leicester and hello to Somerset! I cannot wait.

And on that note, here are some tunes that have been getting me through a week of house packing and an amazing number of orders. Pop these on and get yourself ready for the weekend!

Da Da Da - Trio

Ooh La La - The Faces

Golden Gal - Animal Collective

Voodoo Doll - John Grant

Where The Light Gets In - Primal Scream

Favourite Stationery Blogs

I'm a bit partial to stationery (who isn't?!) and with all the excitement over it being shared as part of National Stationery Week recently, I suddenly realised how I've let my own stationery collection fall by the wayside in recent years. So, I'm starting to rectify that and my first purchase has been these AWESOME Motivational Pencils from Claireabellemakes. I can't wait to start using them!

As well as improving my collection, I have also felt inspired to check out more stationery blogs and I thought I'd share my findings with you all. 

All Things Stationery

Fox and Star


Paper Crave

Stationery Wednesday

We Love Stationery

I'm sure I haven't even skimmed the surface of stationery bloggers out there, so please do share any blogs and sites you love in the comments field below. It's always good to share a blog or two!
