Noting a theme of kitchen based items is occurring so thought they could work together in a pattern

I think the mugs in our house multiply, I find them everywhere, normally with half a cup of cold unfinished tea, of which I leave because I have a million other things to do, well perhaps not a million but somewhere close…

Have recently set up a  Instagram account, see link to the side. Again I find it an inspiring place to look and see what everyone captures through simple filtered pictures, and a nice way of recording my daily ideas through images..

It is my aim this year to get a little shop open, I have a few bits of my handmade items left over from the christmas markets I did, but now need to re stock and start with some new ideas….

New Blog!

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Having followed blogs for years I have always been inspired to start my own. I am a surface pattern designer and I also make a range of handmade accessories. I hope to share my inspirations and designs along the way and anything else creative and inspiring that I come across. I have always found it very insightful to see how other designers and makers document their ideas and showcase their work, in time I hope to set up a small shop that will allow me to start selling my work to a wider audience. newblogHope I don’t ramble too much…
