Inspiration Corner.......Old suitcases

Here at Vintagebubbles we love Vintage (hence the name :)) and a special friend sent me a picture of a suitcase and it got me thinking how I could use them in my product shots, as storage and using them in general.
There I went on a mission to find some inspiration and first stop is always Pinterest and oh lordy lord did I find inspiration. Of course I now want a Aqua suitcase to put all my sewing goodies in.

How about this one by Amy Powers, jammed pack of all sorts of things. Maybe I could add Jewellary making to my list of crafts so I could have an excuse to fill all those tiny jars.
Now the winner of the night goes to this blog....... Have a look and see what every girl needs and maybe the little girl in me may need one too :)
Watch this spot for more of my inspiration corner.
Love Katie xx

Commercial Shoot with Petals on the Wind

Lots been happening here at Vintagebubbles HQ in the last couple of weeks. Thanks to a lovely mum on facebook I won a free commercial shoot with Petals on the Wind photography

I am over the moon with the photos that I recieved and I got such a buzz seeing my products through someone elses eyes. Nothing like professional pictures to boost your spirits and I must say sales too.

April 22nd, 2011

As I sit here and look at my bowl of easter eggs, I thought I would put a new post up on this Good Friday. Mine was spent having fish and chips at the park with a great friend and finishing off with hubby's prawn stirfry yum yum.

I came across this post by Georgie Girl
and it got me thinking....................
" Sewjo a go-go" and I agree with everything Tina has written and I realised that I have I had momentarily lost my ‘sewjo’. Yes, that’s right – there is such a thing.
I chat about fabric and love buying fabric and as Tina said "for a second I felt the buzz again. ' but I open my cupboard and look at the fabric and its gone again.
I force myself to do my current orders and then don't want to look at my machine again. Total lack of motivation!!!!! So I was glad when other working mums wrote about losing their sewjo and how they got it back. How do I get it back????? atm I might sit back and enjoy my family for awhile and try and get my motivation back.

If you have lost your mo-jo or sewjo why not blog about it. :)

Lesson learnt keep things up to date..........just had a look into my blogs history and on 13th December 2008 I won a baby quilt!!!!!!!!!! sorry is it to late to reclaim that give away hehehehehehehe only kiddin :)

So it begins..........................

I have had this blog for a few years now but decided on a re-vamp and deleted all my previous posts and have started new and fresh. My networking is complete facebook (tick), twitter (tick) and blog (tick). oh and yeh my hubby came to me a few nights ago and said "You need to take down some notes on what you want your website to look like" what the??? There's only 24hrs in a day how do I fit all this networking into a working mumma's day :P as I look down at the clock and its 10.59pm. So I can hear you saying who and why...... Vintagebubbles was created out of my love of all things craft and fabric addiction that is slowly getting out of hand but looking for fabric really does put a smile on this girls dial!!!! Maybe it is driving my hubby crazy with him saying "What more fabric???" "Yep I say" (with that smile.) I blame the dollar and sticking with that!!!. I love creating OOAK items that people love to buy for their little princesses. As Vintagebubbles takes over the world little steps at a time.....NOT !!!!well maybe the school mums are getting sick of the little fashion parades at school drop offs. In our defence they get to see it first. So sit back and please enjoy reading my blog of Vintagebubbles .
