Hello! I've had a few difficulties posting today and have only managed to get pictures up now and they're different sizes (sorry but it's took so long to post them I'm just going to keep them like this for now and edit later!) I love these-inspired by all the leaves all over the grass in my back garden. I'm really loving these colours at the moment to. Had an interesting meeting today with a friend of mine about getting some work possibly printed and possibly buying some wool fabric to make some lucious cushions and sell them on my etsy shop........this is something I'm working on so I haven't got an etsy shop yet but watch this space it will happen (and I'm very excited about it)! Anyway she showed me around the mill she works in and it was really interesting seeing all the processes the wool goes through. I really enjoyed it so thank you Ruth!

Something for the kids.......maybe!

Good afternoon. Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Mine was jam packed, doing lots of crafting for my craft fair. I've only got one weekend left to do everything before the big event so it's been manic. Anyway one of my friends has had a little baby girl recently and some other friends of ours are having babies to so it inspired me to do some cute prints for kids. They fun and lively, just like kids. The top print is called "Nelly the Elly" and the bottom is called "Naughty Apples". I hope you like them. All comments welcome!

It's F F F Friday!!

Yeay, It's Friday my favorite day of the week! Hope you've all got something nice planned for the weekend. It's been a busy week for me. I've been contacting lots of companies to see if they want any freelancers. Some of them have come back and said no but they love my work so thats really positive. I guess part of the journey is taking rejection on the head, dusting yourself off and trying again and I've taken it as a positive thing as they like my work yippeee! There are thousands of people for me to contact so I'll be doing that for the rest of the day. Last night while I was having a break I decided to look for some wedding inspiration as I'm getting married next year and found this fabulous blog . Alot of the brides make their own things for their weddings which I'm really into and I found some really cute DIY lanterns they told you how to make them on a blog called The design sponge this website is fantastic. It tells you about all things design related. you must check it out. I just love it. Happy Friday!

My 1st Craft fair!

Hi Everyone! Hope all is well with you all on this fine Wednesday. I've had a very busy morning ordering various bits and pieces for my first ever craft fair! I'm doing it with my frind Rose. We'll be selling things like cushions, purses, tote bags, decorations and cards-All handmade of course. It's a weekend event held in York at St Williams college on Saturday 6th November and Sunday 7th November so if you're looking to by something a bit different for people for Christmas popped to York and see me and Rose! I'm quite nervous as I have never done one before but I'm also excited.

I must also thank my long suffering boyfriend Rob for helping me with my sewing-he's better then I am!

Well Hello there. hope you're all having a good day. Today I'm trying to design some new prints but my mind has a million ideas running through it and I'm struggling to decide on one! I'm hoping to contact a few people today and ask if they need any freelancers to help them. Today is mainly and print and contact day and I'll probably be working late tonight but it's doesn't matter when you work for yourself and you love what you do. I've also been running around after my Dad today as he hasn't bought my Mums birthday present yet and it's tomorrow. I've taken care of that now :) Looking forward to Mums birthday. It will be lovely to spend it with her. See you tomorrow Guys.

Woodland critters

Here's a print I've been working on called woodland critters. I'm staying and my parents house at the moment and they're sorrounded by woodland so that inspired me to do this print. You might not see a blue bird in the woods but hey, thats my imagination! Have a happy Monday!
