We began our #daisychains with some of our Barefoot Books favourites and asking for people to let us know what inspired them and which classics did they have fond memories of and we popped the links up showcasing 3 wonderful new stories and one classic the Snow Queen which has been beautifully illustrated . We were surprised to find a lot of crafters loves not only stories they heard as children , the ones they read themselves and now the ones they read to their children or grandchildren evoke such powerful memories and this lead to looking at a few more of the classics and how they were being transformed by some very talented small businesses. The Classic Goldilocks coming alive on Cakes By Nina - still a firm favourite even in my house - who doesn't like all the silly voices of mummy bear and daddy bear when they come home and find someone has been eating their porridge! Then of course there is our other edible friend The Gingerbread man , in fact this one I spotted the button and to my delight was able to ask for a bespoke present for a very special Gingerbread man of my own . We have often joked about the gingerbread man in shrek when he says Oh no not my buttons and this is my alternative easter gift to my husband to remind us that even when we are down to our last button we still have each other and a good story to tell at that !
Then I began to think about what sort of people are currently visiting the envirowealth page and wanted to find something that sort of showcased the diverse nature of this little community page that is slowly growing in number little by little . I stumbled across a lovely page and fell in love with this particular photo of hers - It sums our community page up - some of us are there to browse and support each others little businesses, we have fashion gurus, health experts, jewellery makers, hairdressers, small shop owners, make up artists and all sorts of other services and information .I hope they feel we are doing the best we can to show our support for all . http://medlarhousemice.blogspot.co.uk/ check out her blog I have been reading the stories to my youngest they are delightful and she really can make you anything you could imagine..check out her new page on facebook for more details .
The bag made me think of sunshine and summer days which took me back to this link A few years ago my daughter had her own little online shop called Phoebe's Corner it lead to her appearing on TV at the time as the youngest guest designer , one of her very first little pieces pictured below , She was almost 10 at the time and stopped when she had to go to boarding school. One day I am sure she will pick it back up as a hobby but I am afraid books for her have become her passion and writing stories and novels is now her thing .She sourced all natural materials and was already quite the Enviro herself . She insisted on making each one unique and would even give them little names adding to the whole charm of her creations.
