Closed for much needed holidays!

Just a little post to say that I will be putting my Etsy shop into vacation mode from tomorrow while I'm on holidays! Between then and now I'll be catching up on lots of emails, orders and other bits and pieces!

I imagine the month of August will be quiet for me as its the busiest month in my full time job and I always need to focus on that.

I hear a heat wave is 'acomin' in Ireland next week, so if you're here! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

We're all going on a summer holiday!

Ok, Ok so it was only last week when I was telling you that I booked the other half and myself on a trip to Paris for New Years Eve 2011.....but I've gone and done it again....booked another trip that is! Are you like me in that you need 'things' to look forward to in order to make your life that bit more....ahem....exciting!?

Well I am one of those people....and this year I was certain we were going on a 'sun hollier!'....and so after scanning and scanning the internet for deal after deal and bargain after bargain...I found a week on the island of Zante in Greece for a very decent price! The best part...we're flying out in less than three weeks time! It's been nearly three years since we've been on holiday together, all of my recent trips have been solo adventures!

I'm keeping this trip very cheap! I plan on buying as little as possible and am currently in the process of digging out all my summer clothing, telling myself it will all fit me in three weeks time! (IT WILL, I swear!). I'm also going to use this trip to catch up on the oooo-ddles of college reading I need to do before September and to try and improve my photography skills (all while sitting by the pool of course!).

So, from July 22nd - July 31st - LuckyRainbowDesigns will be on holidays....gathering inspiration so that come August I can return full of energy and ready for all the craziness that the Christmas markets bring!

What are your plans for holidays this year? Are any of you having a stay-cation?

Today I heart....


A lovely, dainty, 'selling all things handmade' crafty shop in Kilkenny ,Ireland. I had heard about this sweet place via other Etsy Ireland sellers and all of them were sending their goodies back and forth to Roisin and Nadine in Avaluk and using the shop as a platform to sell their work!

The pop-up shop went so well in Limerick and I got such lovely feedback from customers about my work that I decided to (nervously) approach Avaluk to see if they would be interested in having some of my work in their shop...and to my delight, they said yes! It will be so exciting to know that I too will be part of Avaluk and that there will be so many Irish people as well as tourists popping in and out of the shop and viewing all of the amazing work on display. Kilkenny is such an arty city that I'm sure the shop sits well within all the other exciting and mouth drooling shops. A visit there over the summer is a must!

While, the summer has been very busy in my full time job here in UL, I have a few days off next week so I can sit down and get creating for the shop! I'm looking forward to escaping to the studio to be honest, it chills me out and my head is buzzing with ideas at the moment, I'm itching to get them down on paper! I'll be sure to do a sneek preview of whats to come.

Other news....I'm off to Greece with the boy in 3 weeks time! I'm stupid with excitement! I'll do a post on that trip shortly!

I hope you're having a lovely weekend!
