Its Raining Again!!

It has been non stop raining all day, and while I dont mind the rain if im geared up for it, it does not motivate me to work. So im sitting around at home desperately trying to get the motivation up to do something whether it be clean (this is unlikely) or sew. I need to really sew as I have some orders that need filling, the problem I have when I feel unmotivated is that I cant sew for toffee!! One of my orders I am now on my second attempt as the first pair are too small. So I now have 3 pairs of little shoes that I dont really need, maybe I should host a giveaway on here for them?
My other problem is that I really want to start work on something new (my bag in a bag!!) Ive made the first pattern and brought some interfacing and padding etc for it so Im super excited, unfortunately the sensible side of me says you must fill orders first and this makes the not so sensible side of me procrastinate!!
I have only a short post to make today as our computer broke and I cant figure out to upload photos from my mobile to the new one!! Will have to wait till hubby is home!
In the mean time here is a fabulous Treasury we were featured in a few days ago that made it to the front page, I had to share it because the colours were so beautiful and some of the artwork is just gorgeous!!

So thats it for today hopefully I will have something more exciting to say in the next couple of days!!

Winter Sun!!

So when we got ready this morning the weather just seemed beautiful! The sun was shining and it felt so warm inside my house! I asked my little monster what request he had for today and I was told "Seaside Mummy", what a fab idea I thought!! Unfortunately when we arrived at the seaside, the beautiful warm sun was battered by the freezing cold wind!!!! We had a lovely time though, super cold but lovely! My monster was making sand castles and picking up shells and playing as if it were a warm sunny day on the beach, it still amazes me to this day how kids do not feel the cold or care about how they may look, they just have fun and enjoy their surroundings!!
The picture above I thought really summed up how beautiful it was today, i found it here: they have some amazing prints!! Definitely worth a look!!

New Projects!!!!

So i finally made it to 50 items in my Etsy Shop, this has been my goal since I first started taking it all seriously, so im incredibly chuffed to say ive done it!!

Now onto my next project!!
I really want to make a fabulous Nappy Bag, it was so important to me when I was first pregnant, I spent hours trawling the net to find a good one, one that looked fabulous and still had many pockets and useful bits that I thought I would need. To my dismay there really wasnt much choice unless I wanted to spend heaps and heaps of money and even then I didnt really love any of them enough or they were so girly that it put me off as I knew I was having a boy!!
So at the moment im jotting down ideas and thinking about what it needs, what would be nice and how it should look!

I know that one of the most important things to me as a mum was to be able to take the minimum with me when i had to change nappys, for example when in a restaurant. The last thing I wanted was to lug a massive bag complete with the kitchen sink to the mothers and babies room, I still needed to have all these things with me at the meal but I did not need them in the changing room! So I think the first thing I will be working on is a bag in bag, something that can have all the vital things in it that you can swap from bag to bag without worrying about. Something that does not weigh a ton, that you can carry easily while you carry the baby. (weight is very important to me as my little monster is hugely heavy and carrying things other than him are nearly impossible!)
What do you look for in the perfect bag? I mean any bag not just nappy ones!!! Would love to hear your opinions!!

Welcome to Seamingly Possible's new Blog!!!

Hello Everybody!!

Welcome to my new blog, im hoping to be able to post about what I am up to, what inspiration I have found, what things ive been buying , what fabulous shops ive found and generally anything and everything ive been up to or take an interest in!!

I thought for my first post I would tell you a little bit about me and what I do.

Im 26 (closer to 30 now rather than 20!! Very Scary!!), I have a 2 year old son and im a Stay at home mum! Seamingly Possible is the name of my little business, it was something I started 8 years ago doing alterations for people after I had finished studying Fashion at college and supposedly to help subsidise my part time job, unfortuantely my part time job very quickly became a full time job, and 6 years later I was very much full time, with no time for anything else! Just when all the joy of work had been completely sucked out of me I fell pregnant and here we are 3 years later and im finally being able to pick it up again!!

This time however there are no more alterations, as unpicking and mending other peoples clothes was not super inspiring! This time i am indulging my girly side mainly and specialise in baby booties/toddler slippers in a wide variety of fabulous fabrics that I find! I cant control myself when it comes to fabric, im sure this will become more apparant the more I blog!!

I have been married for 5 years now and my lovely husband is a computer programmer, he is not so interested in the pretty fabrics so im hoping that is where you people come in! Please comment on my posts if you feel the need or want, I love to hear others opinions and ideas, recommendations anything really!!!

Thats it for now!!
