I did it!

I have *finally* cracked the problem of website domains!
The new website is on paper-and-string.net and the old one was paper-and-string.co.uk...and now, despite hurdles & obstacles and silly (really rather technical) thing-ummy-bobs being in my way FINALLY both are linked and visiting either web address will take you to our website :-)
YEEEE-HAAA
(it takes 48 hours for this magical thing to happen - so far it's been 7 hours and it works for me...if it doesn't work for you yet please wait another 41 hours & try again - different servers will show the results at different times! and I really REALLY really don't want to hear it hasn't worked after 3 months of trying!!!)

tiny velvet

 I love velvet ribbon, but good velvet ribbon is expensive and that means it's held back for those extra special projects - but GOOD NEWS - this velvet ribbon is gorgeous AND very very good value for money...it's 3mm wide and just 15p a metre AND it comes in nice colours - how could I say no?
3mm velvet can be found here:  http://www.paper-and-string.net/#!3mm-velvet-ribbon/qjtrl

Two in a row!

Are you liking how I disappeared from the blog for a while and just came back like nothing happened??  I'm pretty sure most of my blog readers see us on facebook too so you know all our day to day news - but I miss blogging, so I am BACK!...and I've been back 2 days in a row!!
 The bags in the photos?  They are new :-)  They come in packs of 5 for £3.75 (a bargain, right?)
 and you can choose hearts or dots
The bags are here:  http://www.paper-and-string.net/#!stationery/joh7l
and me?  I'll be HERE, in blog land,  More.  :-)

I LOVE a smiley face , even more so when....

....it's on cute cactus fabric!
 Isn't it amazing???
I got it in all four colours (white, grey, pink & blue) because it's my favourite fabric EVER!!
The cute cacti are small scale so this will work beautifully as felt fabric....just imagine all the things you can make :-)
£3.25 a fat quarter or £11 a metre  (and it's wider than normal...145cm)
