Holiday Time - Paris Here I come!

It's that time of Year again, Holidays!! Yay!!!!
I am very excited to be going to Paris on my hols this year. I have been aching to go back to France for quite some time now, although my French is becoming non existent. This trip should be interesting! I wanted to do something special for my boyfriend as it is a big birthday this year and he really does deserve an extra special treat. So we've planned to do all the touristy things like the Eiffel tower, Champs-Elysées, the Louvre etc. but we also decided that Disneyland was a must!! We've both never been to Disneyland before so this is going to be a first for us both. I'm so excited! I honestly feel like a child again.

So on that note, I'm off!! See you soon. :D

P.s I have been looking at some Paris/France Inspired designs, Here's a few of my favourites, hope you like them...

Roller Blind Design Update

Ok, It's been a while since I last updated my blog with any progress. The design is done, but unfortunately I cannot show you yet until the fabric is safely back in my hands and given to my client. Sorry. I finally got my fabric colour map through the post yesterday, and I have updated the design to the right colours and laid it all out properly. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I'm pretty excited to see it all finished. It's looking pretty good so far if I do say so myself. (Which is quite hard for me to admit usually, I'm such a Modest person!)
 As you can see I'm using Spoonflower for this particular brief, as it worked out the cheapest and better value for what I wanted to do. Also they have a pretty good selection of fabrics to use. We'll soon see what the quality of print is like.

Heres a little sneak peak of colours and design...
