Confidence

I’ve not had much time for sewing because I’ve been researching, I’ve done a little bit but in general I think confidence is a good theme for this post. A few good things, a few not so good if you will. But things that can hopefully be overcome with confidence. I sat down and worked […]

Help me out and win your own pet quilt

I have absolutely no idea if this will work or how much people will get behind me, but I’m asking you to help me out, and I’ll give you something in return 🙂 I confess, I have a weighty credit card bill that is on my shoulders every month and has been for years. Even […]

Trufflepiglet necklace

I’ve been playing around with some Sculpey recently, and decided to make almost all my chocolates in miniature form and make a necklace for craft fairs. It’s not the most excellent polymer clay work you will have ever seen but I think it fits the bill 🙂

Trade titles

There are loads of magazines out there, but sometimes it’s nice to get a different perspective and to read the more serious trade titles. For example whilst I worked on the magazine I used to get Craft Focus and Craft Business through the door. These magazines show you new products and have discussions on trends […]

Ch- ch- changes!

I am drastically cutting down the pieces of jewellery I am now selling. I’ve started by giving the Etsy and Folksy shops a good weeding and this will follow onto the main PennyDog site. Why? Well it is silly me offering more and more made to order items that I don’t have time to replenish. […]

trufflepiglet is now open!

Trufflepiglet is now ready to take orders! Boxed chocoaltes and other goods will come later and gradually within the next two weeks as I am waiting for photographs and packaghing, but loose chocolates can now be ordered! I have a discount code for you until the end of March that allows you 15% off all […]

My first proper order :)

The website is coming along now for trufflepiglet and it will be launched on 28th Feb- now less than 3 weeks! I only hope my boxes come soon otherwise I will be selling loose only for the time being. I was asked by @bootiesbydannie on Twitter to make some chocs for her friend yesterday. We settled […]

Special offer moulds

  I have put a new section on the supplies side of the website listing resin moulds that I have limited quantities of and won’t be restocking, so this is a great chance to grab yourself a bargain and more unusual moulds! You can find this new section here! It will be updated regularly until […]

More chocs

I’ve made some more chocolates today- sorry this is seemingly turning into a food blog! Non-alcoholic Cherry Brandy Swirls, blimming sugar diamonds have clouded up though, maybe from being in the fridge briefly? Jelly cakes- these are my new favourites! Milk chocolate cups with white chocolate tops and strawberry jelly inside! And some more Turkish […]

Shop restock and Chocs Away!

Sorry I have been away so long. This time of year I get very busy, and as a result a lot of my shop has been marked made to order. However I have this morning restocked the site (and also Etsy and Folksy where applicable) and I now have the following available for immediate delivery […]
