Lionheart Launch

Last Sunday the mighty Lionheart magazine was launched into the world, and what a wonderous day it was. After months of waiting I was finally able to see the fruits of Helen Martin’s labour. It was everything I imagined and more; elegant simplicity gracing the thick matte pages, beautiful illustrations, photography and design, talented people, truly interesting features, poetic words, it is a treasure and I can’t recommend it enough, visit the Lionheart website to buy your copy online.

The party was so much fun and I met some brilliant people as well as enjoying time with old friends, highlights included; delicious pizza’s made by my Husband Will, the best cakes ever from the lovely Kimberlee of  The Homemade Mama, a lampshade demonstration by Ruth of  Quincy lampshades, A live illustration (of me!) by the very talented and lovely Gemma Milly and an epic craft session that was loved by all.

Amazing jumper

This week I have been plagued with a dreaded winter cold, now I am better I am looking forward to being at Tenderfoots ‘Yule Love It’ Christmas market on Saturday, lots of lovely unique Christmas gifts on offer, including my wares, and mulled wine and mince pies…

I am also looking forward to the Lionheart Launch Party on Sunday, Music, craft, cake – made by the wonderful Homemade mama, Lions, joy, homemade pizza, aaaand we’ll be able to see the magazine in the flesh – SO exciting. There will be a lampshade demonstration by the very lovely Quincy Lampshades at 3.30pm, which I cant wait to see. I will be doing two crafty workshops at 4.15 – Moustache making, perfect for the photo booth, and sew your own lavender bag/ christmas decoration. At 5.30 there will be a live illustration session by Gemma Milly which I also can’t wait to see! And from 6pm onwards; good music and sparkles.

The weekend after all this action I am looking forward to a weekend off for my Birthday celebrations and some time with the Mr, and then it’ll be Christmas; I’m wishing for A novelty jumper, Christmas films, cheese, mulled wine, board games, an open fire and most of all some snow, it was magical last year:

Dates for your diary

You will be able to find As Petals Fall at the following events:

3rd December – Christmas Steps Artisan Christmas Market, Bristol (11-4)

The Oh So charming Christmas Steps are holding another of their wonderful markets featuring lots of stalls of beautiful handmade goods, perfect for an alternative bit of christmas shopping avoiding the busy high street and a guaranteed dose of festive cheer with carols, mulled cider and twinkling lights. Perfect.

10th December – Yule Love It! Christmas shopping event at Tenderfoot Gifts, Brislington Bristol (10-5)

I absolutely cannot wait to get along to Tenderfoot gifts as it is a plethora of  beautiful arts and crafts stocking work from so many talented artists/ designers/ makers. Another perfect place to find individual christmas gifts, get inspiration and meet some lovely people.

11th December – Lionheart Magazine Launch party, 40 Alfred Place, Kingsdown, Bristol (1-10)

This event is very special, my wonderful  friend Helen has created the most beautiful printed magazine, The first issue is about bravery, and if ever there was a brave, strong lioness then it is Hels; if you need encouragement to follow your dream/ heart then read about her journey into print.

“Lionheart is a celebration of what can be achieved, emphasising that you and your friends are brilliant”  – Indeed.

This party will be a celebration of having a lion in your heart, and a physical embodiment of the magazine itself, there will be all things good: Craft, things to make and do, cake, music, wonderful people, joy…

pretty

Hope to see you there petals x
