I've been away

I feel like I may have disappeared off the the face of the blogging world recently, my days have been filled with working my day job and then in the evening busying myself working away on new stock and getting ready for Renegade.

Here is a little weekly update sharing what I have been working on. Next week is half term and you have no idea how excited I am about having some time off! I'll also get to see my two best mates we haven't been reunited for two years so I have a crazy amount to fit in, in the next few weeks.

Little update on the weight loss I have managed to loose (somehow) two half stone, 10 weeks without chocolate is pretty much killing me...but I am definitely feeling a million times better for it! I would quite like to say replacing the chocolate with dried fruit has been wonderful but that would be a lie ha!

I can't wait to properly get back to blogging but whilst my days are filled with just work I doubt very much I will be blogging.



  1. I love the new tote designs, those are very charming. I bet you're cream crackered by the end of your working day, stick at it Ella and never give up creating those lovely creations! That's fantastic news about the weight loss too and that is true will power giving up the choc!

  2. Hey, i really like your style! how long did it take for you to find your way of working?? :)

  3. Well done on the weight loss! You look fab :)

  4. Your new stock looks amazing! Especially the tote bags! Can't wait to see them on etsy! I've always been a quiet fan and just wanted to say keep it up! Amanda x

  5. Try this recipe! http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2013/10/20/chocolate-peanut-butter-brownie-bites/ you can roll them into small little balls and they are a great healthier chocolate fix. I just made them today and put about a tablespoon of coconut flakes in instead of choc chips, but I really think they are sweet enough without added chocolate chips anyway. Everyone's talking about Renegade it sounds amazing, wish I could go!

  6. congrats on losing weight and stocking new tote bags!

  10. I guess this is not like that It happens when you have to multiple tasks. Things will be streamlined once you are done with some of them.
