Today I am loving A/W 2010

This week has been a mad one. With my orders, wholesale and vintage fairs taking over... I have had to remind myself of all my inspiration for the coming season. After immersing my self in pretty pastels all summer I decided I needed to glam up my range for Autumn Winter. I created this board of all the looks I am loving. I am posting it here as a little taster of my up and coming pieces. I will start to add the new pieces in the next few weeks. 

25% OFF!
I'm having a good week!! I want to pass on my happiness, and I'm feeling generous!! I'd like to offer all my lovely customers 25% off my whole store until the end of the month!! Use discount code SUNNY at the checkout. Happy Shopping!

Sense of fashion

In addition to stores already have designs on my own store, folksy and etsy. I thought I would give another one a go. I have been having a few emails recently aboyt this store. Sense of Fashion.
It seems to bee alot more fashion focused than the others and I have not found it all that easy to use. But I will let you know how the sales go.

Any one else used it already??

Adrianne's Notebook Todays blog post

Today is one of those days... I have so much to do to sort my shop out, but I keep getting side tracked looking at fashion and jewellery on the internet. Today I can across Lady Marshmallow Vintage. As they are based in France, I was pleased to discover that they have an etsy shop! I love the way they shoot their products to display them online, giving them a vintage setting, and showing an example of how to wear them!!

The Envelope Project

I'm TIDYING so this is just a quick Hi from noodleBubble to pass on this fab find.
Basically you pop a few light papery crafty bits in a DECORATED envelope, send it off, it's opened, blogged about, photographed and then ONE SENDER wins THE CONTENTS OF ALL THE ENVELOPES. It's open for SIX WEEKS!
So now as I'm tidying I have a Pile for -
To Do
To Finish (possibly the biggest pile to date)
To File
To Look at immediately and get distracted
To Return to rightful owner
To List on EBay
a new pile- to go in the Envelope
and a minuscule BIN pile (which I go through again and inevitably pop into one of the piles above)
You can join the fun here- CLICK ME
bye - happy making

Becki's Vegetable Patch
Hello everybody, here's something you budding gardeners may be interested to make a raised bed for growing fruit and vegetables in your garden!! I warn you: buying these ready made from the shops is EXPENSIVE, have a look at the mahoosive one me and my family made this weekend, costing the grand sum of £30!!

Also, check out my articles on a great idea for the kids during the summer holiday, a lovely Rococo garden to visit and how to plant tomato seedlings into growbags.

Hi all, noodleBubble here!
Is anyone else thinking about the weekend yet?

I am, but then again I've been looking forward to this for a while now -
If you're around Leicester this weekend it'll be well worth a peep or two! Little map here to plan your route - might see you there?!

Becki's Vegetable Patch - gardening CAN be interesting!!!

Hi, my name is Becki and my blog is: 

This began as a diary by a complete gardening beginner of how we transformed our country garden in Malvern. It has blossomed into a blog all about what we learnt, beautiful gardens created by other people, and hints and tips on anything from what flowers to choose to how to keep chickens.

I love to write, I love to garden, I love to shop and I really enjoy giving people inspiration and ideas for how to improve the green spaces around them. Take a look, hopefully it will inspire you to do the same!

Hi there! My name is Adrianne Yates and I am a jewellery designer, illustrator, stylist and graphic artist (jack of all trades...) based in Worcestershire Uk.
I am also founder of this very new group Midlands Indie Makers... everybody around me seems to be making, weather it is in the kitchen, garden or the studio everybody is turning their hand to some kind of craft. I spend a lot of time, checking out their individual blogs, shops and websites,and chatting about tips and experiences. I thought it would be really good if there was a place where we could all share our "stuff"... so I started the facebook page, and this blog!
I hope that this is going to be a successful experience and useful tool. Time will tell.

I thought I would get the ball rolling and show you a little of my work. I intend to regularly post occasional entrys from my own personal blog adriannesnotebook and hope other members will do the same.


I'm not sure how this blog is going to work... so consider it a work in progress!
I want to set it up so we can all blog any events, ideas, inspiration and workshops any ideas, let me know.
If you want to post about your work in the meantime email me at and I'll give you the details to blog!!
