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!

NEW Curious Otter Tote Bag

500x500 Curious Otter Tote Bag 3

Here is my new Curious Otter tote bag! I have been wanting to get my favourite little otter printed onto a tote bag for a while now and it is finally here!

I love the quality of this bag, the long straps are perfect for wearing over your shoulder and filling with all manner of goodies. I recommend magazines and chocolate!

Screen printed on 100% cotton in the UK this bag is available from Not On The Highstreet, Etsy, Folksy and website!

My first post of 2016! I’m not the best at posting on my blog am I, I must make more of an effort to put things on here!

This is my favourite card from my latest range of greetings cards. I have always loved Swans and the fact that they mate for life, so lovely and romantic. I also rarely use colour in my work so this is lot of colour for me and for that reason it’s my favourite.

A Slow Passion in Blackwell’s

Blackwells Slow Passion BLOG

I was very excited to see ‘A Slow Passion’ in Blackwell’s today, in the original bookshop which opened at 50 Broad Street, Oxford in 1879. I thought I’d share a couple of pictures I took today as it was so exciting to see my work in such a historic bookshop!
