I am known to many as being rather OCD at times. I make bags with many pockets as I hate rummaging around trying to find things!!




If we think of the humble purse as more than just a place to keep our money it opens up many more possibilities for it's uses. I have several in my bag to further feed my OCD habits. Each one is a different fabric so I know I need the lovely orange one for my headphones, The blue campervan one for my business cards and the purple flowery one for my MP3 player and it's leads.


Gone are the days when I go to get something out of my bag only to find my headphones are wrapped round it plus something else in there has also joined the party.....does anyone else suffer with that??




If like me you have a need to keep your life in order and know exactly where to find things then do feel free to skip over to my purses section Here


This brings me nicely to the October giveaway. I am giving 2 people the chance to win thier favourite purse. All you need to do is sign up for my newsletter at the top of my site and then leave a comment on this blog post letting me know which is your favourite purse..




The winners will be chosen at random on 31st October and will be notified by email.


If you think you have friends who would also like a pocket of joy then do please share this for me on social media.


Good Luck to all :-)

I have been doing research today on the safety of henna during pregnancy.


There is no reason why you can’t have a Henna Tattoo while you are pregnant. However you should be careful with what the henna is mixed with as the paste usually contains essential oils.


As ever I would always advise you to buy your henna from a reputable source or ensure that your henna artist does! make sure you know what essential oils are in each blend. The majority of henna paste is mixed with Cajput oil which should be avoided during pregnancy as well as Mehlabiya, Teatree, Clove & Mustard Seed.


Henna mixed purely with lemon juice and pure lavender oil is the safest blend to use during pregnancy and for children under 5 years old.


You can find more information regarding using essential oils during pregnancy HERE


If you would be interested in booking a henna bump design then do get in touch, they are a really special way to remember those special last weeks of pregnancy and a pleasure to create.

I have had several requests over the last year for henna workshops and hints and tips on henna. I have also found that people enjoy the process of watching designs unfold as much as they like to wear them so with that in mind I have started making some henna clips for you all to enjoy on youtube.


I have had a batch of old henna in the freezer for a while which is not staining as well as it should so I have saved it for practice.......it always seemed wrong to throw it away....but then I am a bit odd (grins)


If you find inspiration from them then that would make me smile, if they help you learn how designs are broken down and how they evolve then do let me know, feedback, questions and comments are VERY welcomed. You can find my youtube channel HERE do click on subscribe if you like what you see!


I started doing henna tattoos in 2004 when I was working as a face painter and it has taken me this long to really feel confident enough in my henna to really push it forward. If you are new to it then I would say regular practice is the key to honing your skills, you can mix up icing to the right consistancy to practice with using the same kind of cone as you use for henna......I would cry if I was using real henna (....see....odd person!!) I find my friends are always happy for me to practice on them (you know who you are!!) so I am not short of a hand or two to decorate but you can also draw round your hand on a piece of paper and Ta-Da....willing victim that sits still ;-)


I will update my blog with links to future videos, these are the ones that I have added so far, they are all freehand designs so I have blanked out the sound to spare you the sound of the rusty cogs of my braincell trying to decide where to go next
