I aim to update my blog as frequently as possible, and thought i’d give myself a theme for some new posts – quite a broad theme – animals big and small. I have done so many animals over the years in my work but still never tire of creating new ones. So first one a Tiger…

spots and kittens…

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

I’ve not had a minute to update my blog recently – mainly due to one thing – chicken pox…. My youngest son got it, so its been a spotty few days.

More exciting news i’m getting (almost certainly) a kitten…..! Will update with pictures when she arrives! x

power cut….

Monday, May 18th, 2015

I had a power cut this morning, you don’t realise how much you need and depend on electricity and the internet etc … Fortunately it didn’t last long but as i was mid way through a design which I had thankfully saved (phew..) I made some quick patterns. I am hoping that this summer i can dedicate some time to get some fabric printed and maybe make some little purses, this is total wishful thinking…

Working late tonight, just finished some commission work – so before I turned off my screen I quickly experimented with a simple minimal pattern – why? just felt like it x

holiday packing…..

Monday, May 11th, 2015

This may seem a little early for packing as we actually don’t go away for quite a while, but I kind of have to start thinking about getting organised as we have to pack what seems like the entire contents of the house. Even though children are less than half your size they need way more stuff than us and the smaller they are the more they need…!

I won’t be packing a flamingo ….

frames..

Monday, May 11th, 2015

I made the most of a recent offer with MOO and got lots of postcards, stickers and business cards printed the quality is great and there are lots of products to choose from. I had a go at framing some of the postcards, need to get myself organised with an etsy shop asap! x
