International Cat Day

Cat 5 in Frame (etsy)Cat Bag Rose bush 2

It is International Cat Day and I couldn’t let the day pass without showing you some of my favourite Cat based goodies.

The kitty cat in the frame is an original drawing available to buy on my Etsy shop. I went cat drawing crazy a little while ago when all I wanted to draw was cats so I have collection of original drawings all on A5 Fabriano paper of my favourite kitties.

My favourite product is my Cat Tote Bag, my day was totally made last week when a lovely lady asked where my bag was from and it was this one! It the most lovely feeling when someone likes or compliments your work. The tote bag is a really useful size and the handles are a great length for putting over your shoulder and you really can fit quite a lot in it!

Happy International Cat Day!

A walk in the woods

Just before New Year I went for a walk in the woods. I haven’t been in these woods for years, they’re near my childhood home in the village I grew up in and it couldn’t have been a better time of day to visit.

The sun was low and the mist had barely lifted all day and hung in the air like a magical, almost eerie, fog. Me and my Fiancé took our cameras and we were so glad we did; I took a few product photos of my tote bags, and then enjoyed the amazing surroundings. We decided that we should definitely go for more walks there as the seasons change, because there is nothing quite like going for a walk in amongst the trees.

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!

Very Curious

Curious Otter BLOG size

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.

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.
