Behind the scenes of our Spring/Summer Shoot & a peek at what’s to come!

We had our spring/summer photo shoot at the end of last year. Despite it being bitterly cold the ladies, with their sunny disposition, soon got in the mood for shooting summer clothes and the usual level of high jinks ensued!Β  Here’s a little unedited look at what we get up to behind closed doors seen though the lens of our photographer, Miss Rain.

Featuring our Modles: Frankii Wilde, Zara Ann & Little Gem.

Very Fetching!
It was a little chilly on set!Β  We’re nearly let Gem keep these on as they matched the outfit so well but unfortunately they didn’t quite have the Summer vibe we were looking for!

Let Them Eat Cake!
Can’t complain too much when the shoot comes with free snacks! Try not to eat all the props ladies! ;D
Let them eat acke!

Show Us Your Muscles!
Frankii proves her training at the gym is starting to pay off! Gem gets a Brucey bonus for this pose πŸ˜‰

Damsels In Distress!
Who will rescue our fair maidens?!

Channelling The Fonz!

What’s The Forecast For Summer?
Chance of rain? Windy?! We’re hoping it will be sunny!
whatever the weather

Somehow Frankii missing out on the treats and she’s non too happy about it!

All the fun of the [trade] fair! Our day out at Craft, Hobby & Stitch.

For the most part my job involves a lot of rather unglamorous and sometime tedious admin and paperwork but the job also has it perks and taking a day of the office to go the Craft, Hobby & Stitch trade fair in Birmingham is one of them.

We spent a good 6 hours at the show and they were practically throwing us out at the end!Β  Although we’re there to loots at fabrics, for the most part, we can’t help but get drawn into looking at all the world of crafting has to off, in all it’s multi coloured glory!

Here’s a few snaps we took on our way!

Cute charms and buttons
Super cute charms and buttons! Wanted to take them all home with us πŸ™‚

card making
Demo of some card making supplies that were right up our street. Fifties style gets everywhere these days!

tempting trims
Just about all the pom pom trim you could hope for some really sweet ribbon trims.

Trying not to be tempted by the Hsqvarna embroidery machines!

excellent coat!
Finally found our way to the fabric area of the show.Β  This chap knows how to sell his fabrics!Β  This coat reminded us of a past Doctor Who!Β  Apparently it is made from the pattern of a coat that was in Gone With The Wind.

fabric galor
Rail after rail for fabric beckoned!Β  The ones on the right, imported from Japan, were some of the more unusual on offer!

We can’t show you the fabrics we’re planning on ordering, that’s top secret!!

Hope you enjoyed our tour of the show!
