My Blogger Page

I maintain a page on Blogger where I post odd bits and bobs that I do and that cross my mind. The window below shows a view of the blog, but it would be much easier to read my blog and take part by clicking on the following link, which will take you go directly to the blog in a new window:

A special meet up.

A few months ago I met up with the lovely Carmen from a Traveling sketchbook,  she is creating a sketchbook as she follows her passion for travel and meeting people.
You can read all about our saturday afternoon tea and snips over on her blog.
After reading her blog I really do think I should update my profile picture very soon!

The lovely photos were taken by Anne Neijnens

A few pups from my 100 day project!

The hundred day project is now on its final stretch and after lots of procrastination I decided just to do random 1/2 hour snips. This week was all about pups and kittens.

One of your five a day.

Very happy that I managed to scan these all in and put them together.
Not sure if I prefer it on the white or dark background people seem to have different options!

Nearly half way!

So nearly half way through the 100 day project and I have now embarked on another ABC!
See my everyday posts over on my Instagram feed .


Cushion Competition

I decided to enter the Wraptious Cushion competition again this Spring and my cushions would love a few likes!


All about flowers

After finishing the ABC I felt like I needed a break from animals so I have embarked on a few flowers. Really enjoying this process although running out of things to document from my garden very quickly!


Yay! I reached Z.......

I am pleased to say I reached Z! Need to redo A as at the moment it is an Apple and needs to be an animal.
The 100 day project of course continues and I plan to do a fruit and vegetable ABC with maybe a little interlude for a floral break!!
Below is a selection.

The 100 Day Project-1/2 Hour sketchbook snips!

So many other things going on at the moment that I just can't post, and not enough time for personal projects but I did decide to take part in The 100 day project hosted by Elle Luna over on Instagram this year again, something short and sweet that has a time restraint to make it managable! Find me posting everyday for 100 days over here! Kicking it off with an A-Z!

Winter School Week 2

The second assignment in Winter School turned out like this!

The best thing about these courses is that they push you to do things you couldn't of dreamt up!



It was really lovely to be included in this months Uppercase magazine, along with lots of other talented surface pattern people, this magazine is one of my all time favourites so I was very flattered to be chosen!


Boho Floral

Too many things going on at the moment to have much time to blog, but decided to join in with Winter school for the first time and happy to have found some time last week to work on the brief.
I am taking the advanced track and the brief was for a Glam, Boho Rock vibe!

You can see all the galleries with the lovely designs here!


Happy New Year

Slowly creeping back to normal here, so sending lots of wishes for the New Year!

Also have a few tea towels left in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested!


Best wishes for the holidays!

I realised I hadn't posted any festive images on my poor neglected blog so a little round up of my Christmas offerings!


Two new designs

The first lot of tea towels sold really well, so I added a couple more designs and had some more printed, All available in My Etsy Shop or message me directly.
