Women in Making 2014

Friday, March 28, 2014
Hello Everyone!

I have some news..... I have entered myself into the 'Women in Making 2014' competition with Triumph.
It's basically a competition for all designer makers to win a grant towards developing their business and getting expert advice in launching yourself towards bigger plans and ideas. Its a great collective and although I don't think I've got a huge chance, the community is a wonderful and creative space to be!

I would love it if you could all vote for me! You can do so here: https://campaign.triumph.com/uk/profiles/sophia-palmer

I would absolutely love your support!

Thanks in advance!

Our Snowy Holiday in Val D'Isere!

Monday, March 10, 2014
Hi Everyone!

Well I'm back in my beautiful sunny workshop after a short break in Val D'Isere in the French Alps! We had a lovely time with our friends and I learnt how to ski!! Yey! (I'm not that good but I enjoyed it!)
The views and surroundings were surreal! It was like a winter wonderland! It made me feel all cosy and Christmassy- even though it was March!
I thought I'd share you some pictures of our holiday and the inspiration I took away from it ready for Christmas ( I'm sorry but I do have to start it soon! ).

Watching the Torch Light Descent! Skiers hold flares and do this amazing display down the mountain!

Here are some picture previews of a couple of boards on my Pinterest! Follow me here: http://www.pinterest.com/jessalli/ 

I truly loved the wintery style of the mountains! All the flats and chalets were made from wood and stone and the interiors all had a Scandinavian/ Nordic style! I'm ready to start designing and making some Christmas things now!

I hope you all enjoyed this little picture post! Better get back to work! It's hard to catch up after a week off!
