Celebrating my First Year of Blogging!

Hello all. I'm celebrating my first year of blogging! I remember being so nervous when I first started because putting myself and my work out there on the internet for all to see made me feel rather vulnerable, however I can honestly say that I needn't have felt that way because I've only met wonderful, kind people via my blog- all who have been so supportive and friendly. So I wanted to say a BIG, BIG thank you to all of you who have visited me here and supported me and my art- as ever it is truly appreciated and to celebrate I thought why not have a special Giveaway? Im offering you all a gift of 5 free items to one lucky person who buys something from one of my shops between now and the 24th January.

**Free items includes any of my cards and art prints**

My work is available to buy here and here. To enter all you need to do is leave me a note at checkout when you buy something saying: ONE YEAR for your chance to win!

Good luck everyone!

I also have some exciting news and that is that my Not On The High Street shop is now open! Hooray! I don't have a huge amount on there at the moment but hope to be adding more soon, including personalised Valentines & Mothers Day cards. I also have personalised cards available in this shop that aren't available in my Etsy shop. Hope you like them!

Unfortunately I may not be back blogging again now until next week because I have a trade fair coming up that I'm frantically busy getting ready for. I'm super excited though as this is my favourite trade fair and my first time exhibiting there. I''ll be on stand F40 at Top Drawer from the 17th-19th if anyone is visiting & fancies dropping by and saying hello :) It really is a fantastic show- bursting with talented designers from small businesses all over the UK, I would highly recommend a visit as I always have done in the past.

Have a great week everyone! Em x

Huge congratulations on your first year! Your work is wonderful and has a look that is definitely all yours :0) Here's to a exciting second year!

Hi Emma,
Happy Birthday!
I am hoping to be at Top Drawer and will come and say hello. Sadly Humphrey will not be with me as he is not over fond of the underground - and he did actually travel on it once when he and I went down to London for an animal communication workshop - yes really!!
Love Charlotte

Congratulations! Well done. You are so inspiring! I am planning to set up my first blog in a few months time and I find it really scarry, so it is good to read that you felt similar at the beginning!

Thank you Heidi!

You should go for it- the first post is the scariest then you start having fun and you meet wonderful people! :)

Well done you. My blogging seems to be somewhat sporadic of late. There always seems to something getting in the way of me doing it. Oh well hopefully things will improve soon.

Have a fabulous time at the show, I'm sure you'll do well with your beautiful stuff.

Luv Dee xxx
