Shop Shop Shop Shop!

 Just stopping by real quick to show you some pictures of what's been going on at By The Yard...mainly a lot of rather boring but important prep work...like wall papering up lots of lining paper and poly filling up lots of holes...
These are the colors which we will use here and there on the furniture...my favorite one is coral colored type one...but only because its called Bongo Jazz.
This is the terribly exciting white color we've chosen for the walls...it's called Clouded Pearl 3.
Here's El (she's the other, quieter half of StuffedNonsense) writing on our door in chalk pen...she's sitting on steps because she's having a baby in July...we mentioned it on Instagram but I don't think we mentioned it here...so there you go...that's another epic piece of news for you.
And here's our flyer....El made it...she's clever.

Right...that's all for now...we're putting lots and lots of facebook status up on By The Yards Facebook page...soo if you're interested why not pop over there??

Quite Possibly The Biggest News Ever...

We've not been here much at all have we?
We're sorry...but we do have a rather incredible excuse for our extended absence.
We're opening a shop.
A real one.
Made from bricks and mortar.
With a door.
And it's own entrance.
We're a little bit excited about it...Can you tell?
Excited and terrified. 
For those of you that don't know the full StuffedNonsense story, we used to have a small studio shop in Cheltenham which we closed a few years back because it wasn't quite right.
We took a step back we licked our wounds, we learnt some pretty big life lessons and we got good at aspects of running a business that we weren't good at before, we took a deep breath and decided to try again.

Which brings us back to here...the 3rd of May...the day we announced to the world that we were trying again.

It's going to be called By The Yard, it is on St James Street, Cheltenham.
It will be full to the brim with handmade hand designed items and will also host many exciting crafty workshops.
We're hoping to open mid June (fingers crossed).

Soo...take our hands and join us for the next step on our journey.
Here's some pictures of what we've gotten ourselves into to...
