I’m excited to say on 5th and 6th of November I will be selling my wares at Renegade Craft Fair! It’s my first time selling at Renegade so I’m very excited. It’s the perfect opportunity to do some Christmas shopping  (I know I’m going to be buying!) It’s free to get in so if you come stop by and say hi!

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!

I love you

My newest and latest Risograph print is here! My Valentine Bears are very much in love, this print has been a long time coming for various reasons but it is finally here.

It is such a lovely print to give to anyone who has recently got engaged, celebrating an anniversary or to give as a wedding present. The sweet and petite a5 size also means you can pop it in the post to anyone you love!

Available for £10 from my website, Etsy, Folksy and Not On The Highstreet shops

Swans

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.

New Notebooks

Notebook Press Image BLOG

I have something new to show you! These are my new notebooks! There are 4 different designs in the range and are inspired by my love for spring and new found passion for pattern making! I really enjoyed making these, they are something a bit different to my usual work and I’m trying to expand my way of working a bit so I hope you like them! They have 46 pages of ruled lines and printed onto recycled paper, they are available on my website, Etsy and Not On The High Street shops.

Something new

I’ve been working a few new things lately including a new range of cards and trying out a new way of working for me that doesn’t rely on a black outline…this cactus probably won’t make it onto a card but I like not having the restriction of my usual outline around things sometimes.
