Jodie Anna is getting hitched part 2!

Thursday, 28 June 2012

So I have spent a lot of time on the internet lately.... its fair to say and I didn't think I would ever say this but I am actually bored of the internet! ahhhhhh hopefully that will change when I am better and able to leave the house. But this has given me plenty of time to do a lot of looking and a little buying for my wedding. Which by the way is year away on the 29th of June!!!

Me and my partner Paul want a wedding that represents both our tastes and interests, we both love vintage and handmade so this will be a major part of our wedding day, 

One of the things that I have wanted before I was even engaged was brooch/button bouquet. So I have 
started collecting buttons and enamel flower brooches to make my own bouquet and button holes. Here are a few images of the ones I have collected so far, 

As you can see from the images our key colours are red, blue and white... I think I have a lot more collecting to-do but they already look so lovely altogether.

Here are some beautiful examples of button/brooch bouquets.


Spot of tea..... or maybe coffee!

Over the past few weeks I have had plenty of time to sit and draw! I have lots of new ideas that will slowly develop.... hopefully! One that I have been working on is a new necklace and brooch for my Great British Tea range. Not every body likes tea so decided to create a coffee pot! This was inspired by a lovely coffee pot I found at a charity shop a couple of years ago. It sits in my kitchen window... and mainly contains flowers not coffee!

Enjoy the rest of your fathers day!

Where has time gone!

Its fair to say that April, May and looks like June have been a pretty rubbish few months for Jodie Anna. I apologise for the lack of blogging, tweets and facebook posts.

At the end of April I sadly lost my grandmother, it was very sudden and unexpected and its fair to say that it broke my heart. My Gma was a massive source of inspiration for a lot of my work. She was the lady that took me to the seaside every year during summer holidays with my brother and sister and my cousins and created a lot of the memories that I use in my work today. When I think of any childhood memories she was always apart of them and she will carry on living on within my work. I am currently working on a new product that my grandma asked me to make for her the week that she died, as soon as I have some images of this I will be posting them.

As well as this I have been extremely poorly since the start of May to now! I am starting to get slightly  fed up of not been allowed to do anything but sleep and stay indoors!.... and not getting any better. This has made Jodie Anna ... pratitucly non existent. I missed all the jubilee events as well as attending the wonderful June Reet Sweet! and The Diamond Jubilee festival at Battersea park London!

Even though I have missed all these there were some good stuff! Jodie Anna was featured in the June issue of Vogue!

So my apologises for the absences and Jodie Anna will be back soon with lots of new products and a few pictures of  outings.... which involved cake of course before I became poorly. Please keep checking back.
