I had to share this with you.... Kate's first music video has just been released on youtube and here it is. Can you see my Mum and I... It's a beautiful song about her Mum and being close to Kate's sister it really gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes... I hope you enjoy the song as much as I do!

My Clutch from Handmade Heaven created by JK Creations
It was a very successful day, all my lovely lady friends were at my home to witness the first ever party and they loved it :)
Liesa did an amazing job and she bought so much variety that my guests were spoilt for choice, we had a lovely morning tea of cupcakes (of course :) and other nibblies, but just a great morning of handmade loveliness, friends and coffee... what more could we ask for..
Here are some photo's... look at all the gorgeous handmade heaven loveliness:-
I personally wasn't at the Expo (except for the early morning set up :) however, I was elsewhere promoting the Handmade Expo and Handmade Heaven... that's right everyone, I was at the Ipswich City Mall at the Lifestyle & Hobby Expo.. promoting, promoting, promoting. Sending everyone down to the Turf Club to experience the biggest and best quality handmade only market in town... and what a great response we had.
So many customers that came to our table told us "we have just come from there"... so that was good to hear and put a smile on our faces.
We were also at the Ipswich City Mall today as well - being a 2 day event, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to put the Handmade Expo and Handmade Heaven on the Ipswich map.. so there you have it... 2 days of Expo and Heaven this weekend.
We also have to put a big shout out to Mayor Paul Pisasale who also mentioned us on Saturday morning to the ever growing crowd in the mall, also a great promotion for the Expo knowing that Paul and the Council support us 110%. So thankyou.
So everyone, the next expo is on Saturday 17th April, same time, same place... see you there :)
