The Art and Business of surface pattern design e-course

Hi all! I thought I'd let the really creative among you know that there's this wonderful e-course running at the moment on the Do what you love website called The Art and Business of surface pattern design featuring Rachael Taylor- who I think is a wonderful designer and she's really lovely too! Module 1 is finished but you're not to late for 2 & 3 which I'm doing and I am so excited about it. It basically is a course about setting up your own brand and making it successful. I'm currently working on the Me-Me Lou brand and I am trying to make it successful so any tips or advice I welcome so I jumped at the chance to be a part of it. This course is a must for all you surface pattern designers. Rachael is one of the best out there and is an ideal as a teacher for this course. For more info please click on the link.

Christmas is just around the corner!!!

Ooooh it's almost here. I can't believe it. This year is going by so quickly. Are you all ready? I've got pretty much everything so I'm quite happy. I don't normally blog on a weekend but I've been asked to go and work freelance again up until christmas which is lovely so I've not got as much time as I would normally have to blog so i thought I'd post something quick while I have a chance. Below are some more christmas designs I've done for my agent again. Hope you like them-right I'm off to make some christmas biscuits with hubby Yummy!

Today I thought I'd share a couple of snaps from my craft fair at Reetsweet that happened at the weekend. It was held at the Corn exchange in Leeds which is such a gorgeous building. The craft fair went well but despite it being christmas people are still scared to spend money on things they perhaps don't need. I myself am scared so I totally understand. I still had a great time and really enjoyed meeting other creatives and getting some really positive comments about my work. There are so many talented people out there. It's such a pleasure to be a part of it. When my website is finally ready (it's taking AGES) you will be able to buy my hand made products on it which I'm really excited about. Anyway hope you all have a fantastic day despite it being a bit grim out there :)
