LOOK at these gorgeous cupcakes!  You can have them delivered if you live around Manchester - they taste awesome.  If you are sending them as a gift, you can now get my little brooch-cards (recycled card and 93% recycled wool centre) and more delivered with these yummy cakes!

I got these chocolate orange cupcakes for my sister’s graduation and they went down a treat! http://www.airyfairycupcakes.co.uk/

I have volunteered in my local Oxfam shop since September 2010.  They do work hard in there, creating funds for Oxfam AND encouraging people to reuse items that still have plenty of life left in them.  I currently donate an item for every one of these brooches sold to my local shop to sell.  They keep all the money made from the donated items.  They are knitted from 93% recycled wool and have a little satin rose and faux pearls hand stitched onto the front.

Was given the lovely xmas gift of a “learn-to crochet” book…I can now do crochet trims on my little heart brooches.  Crocheting was probably all I could manage after the colossal amount of food I consumed on xmas day!  The centre is knitted with 93% recycled wool and the lilac trim is left-over acrylic from knitting a baby blanket for a friend.
