A trip to Spain

Hello all. Firstly an apology as I know I said I would be back on Monday and what day is it today? Saturday!! I have a good excuse though- honest! Whilst I was away I got a phone call from a studio I used to work for asking if I would do some in house work for them (starting the week I got back) so I've been juggling that and my business all week and I've just not been able to get to my blog :( That's why I'm blogging today- not something I normally do at the weekends but I was desperate to get back to it and let you know what I've been up to.

Phil and I decided to go Spain! A rather spur of the moment holiday but it did wonders as we both needed a rest and some sunshine. Apparently we were VERY lucky with the weather because leading up to our week there, Spain had been having record levels of rain! We had sunny warm weather nearly everyday and I had forgotten what it was like to be outside in T-Shirt- bliss!

Here are some photos I took....

Hope you like them! I loved wondering up and down all the little winding streets which were bursting with colour.

Next week I should be back to blogging more often but bear with me as I'm working away from home again for three days.

Oh yes and news on my next Giveaway! I've decided to have my next one when I get to 40 followers (need four more lovely people) so as soon as that happens I'll post it up :)

Oh and I also need to say a BIG thank you to the lovely Alison from Municipal Cupcake who wrote to me a short while ago asking if she could review my products. You can read what she wrote here and here. Thanks so much Alison!

Have a good weekend everyone!

Looks lovely Emma. Can I ask where you stayed (assuming it was nice?) I love the view from the appartment. I have never been to Spain and don't know where to start...

Hello little brown rabbit!

I just found you via Sumea's blog! You are an illustrator, and mom to some bunnies? Excellent! I am illustrating after about 40 years of not drawing and I love bunnies, so I just had to leave a comment. Please come by sometime, especially or this recent post, where you will see some of my artwork.

Love your pictures of Spain! Anita
