Life Lately

AirshowRose WallIvy

I love blue sky, I definitely feel so much happier when the sun is shining. Here are a few pictures from recent months, I haven’t updated this blog nearly enough.

The top picture is from an air show! The middle is a lovely rose covered wall in Hampton Court, one of my favourite places to be when the sun shining and bottom picture is of my Curious Otter tote bag hanging on a ivy covered wall. I recently sent some more to the brilliant Cambridge Contemporary Crafts so if you’re in the lovely Cambridge area pop in and have a look!

Very Curious

I love spending time in the countryside, it was so lovely and sunny at the weekend (not so much now I just got drenched in a downpour!) and it was just what I needed, to be amongst the beautiful blossom, feel the warmth of the sun and look out onto fields of green grass.

For my walk amongst the trees I wore my new Curious Otter tote bag, it’s perfect for carrying a small jacket for when things get a little bit chilly, or for holding your jumper when things get a bit hot! It does happen from time to time!

When I have super heavy items to carry around (which may or may not include a few boxes of french fancies…they can get quite heavy you know!) I usually tie the long straps into a knot for easier carrying capabilities.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine, let’s hope it comes back soon!

Custom Pet Illustrations

Pet Illustration Blog

I now create custom pet illustrations!

I have been commissioned for a few custom pet portraits in the past and love drawing your beautiful furry friends so I thought I would offer a bespoke service on my website and online stores!

When placing an order simply send me a picture of your lovely pet or even favourite animal and I will create a line drawing for you (in the style of the fluffy bunny above) on a5 Fabriano paper for £40!

These would make really nice gifts for anyone with pets (lucky!) or anyone that has a favourite animal they would like captured in an ink drawing!

Available to order from my website, Not On The Highstreet and Etsy shop.
