I won a Mollie Makes Handmade award! June 12 2015

Yay! I did it lovelies! 

I won the Mollie Makes Creative idea award with Make it Sewcial, how AMAZING is that?...  It feels all kinds of wonderful to be recognised and rewarded for my contributions and commitment to the Handmade community... Its certainly a celebration of everything I've dreamed of and worked so hard to achieve.  

Apologies in advance for sharing a pic of me with my head chopped off, but of course, in true Allison style, I cried all the happy tears and couldn't stop blubbing for long enough to have my photo taken! Anyway, look how pretty my award looks?.. best to focus all eyes on that little beauty instead, I've been looking at it since yesterday and I'm still smiling now! :) 

 

 

Honestly, I'm not sure I've ever felt much happier (well, except when I married Mr C of course and had my two children!) Oh, and maybe when we appeared on the cover of Mollie Makes home magazine 'and when I'm sat on a beach in Cornwall watching all the surfers.. a'hem.. I mean 'watching the sun go down (tee hee) that sure is a whole lot of happy!

I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend a gorgeous day in London with the Mollie Makes team and to have had the chance to meet so many inspirational people too was just magical, here are a few pics I managed to capture of the day, in-between all of the hugging and chatting! It started with a photo walk lead by the gorgeous Xanthe Berkley...

And all the happy people getting their craft on!

What a day! Thank you so much Mollie Makes for making the magic happen, and for spoiling us all, I'm so looking forward to the next part of the journey, and thank you to Pinterest UK for all the love and inspiration, I'm so excited to work with you guys too. Eek! 

And finally, heres's another pic of that 'beautiful' award... gorgeous isn't it?...

I feel so proud, I'm guessing this is what it feels like to win an Oscar huh?!?... (at least in the world of handmade it does!) except you probably won't be seeing me on the big screen anytime soon, but I've sure got big plans for Make it Sewcial and I hope this lovely community will be starring in it with me! 

Big love for now
