Hope you all had a fab Christmas and New Year! I have been busy finally setting up my Etsy shop! You can now buy my jewellery, cards and bags online, which is very exciting! More items are being added each week, so keep checking back! And as a launch special there is 10% OFF EVERYTHING! But be quick it is on for one week only!! It is also the launch of my new brand name Cat-a-Cake Creations (I hope you all like it)!

Covent Garden Market

Here are a few photos of my stall at Covent Garden. The stall holders there were lovely and welcoming. Unfortunately the weather meant it was a quiet day but it was a good experience all the same and I am pleased I have been accepted into such a prestigious venue.
