Spotty Floral

Hello my fellow bloggers! As I suspected- so far it's been a really busy week- I've been working away from home and visiting friends & family as well. I forgot how horrible my morning commute used to be so I've been counting my lucky stars that I don't have to do it that often anymore! Two hours a day sitting in the car in traffic is something I definitely don't miss!

Thank you for all your lovely messages on my previous post and to Lucy- it's so wonderful to hear that I'm inspiring you to blog more often- go for it!

I've got a pretty little floral design to show you today, which a drew in Illustrator. This was quite a challenge for me as I usually work in flat colour but I like the way it's turned out.

I'll be back soon- hopefully tomorrow or Friday :)

P.S We are a step closer to my next Giveaway- I only need 3 more followers now! :)

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....

Marbella Old Town



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!

More Easter Goodies!

Hooray- it's Friday and I have more Easter goodies to share with you :) I have just uploaded these new personalised cards to my NOTHS shop. I hope you like them- I had a lot of fun designing them.

I hope everyone has a great weekend- and a great following week for that matter, as I've decided to have some well earned time off, so I probably (if I can stop myself ;)) won't be blogging next week. But I'll be back for sure on the 22nd :)

Bye bye for now

Oh! Forgot to say that I am only making 5 of each of the bottom two cards- so once they're gone- they're gone!

Easter's Nearly Here!

Hello all, seeing as Easter is nearly here I thought I would share this design with you today that I also sold recently. I can't help but smile back at those happy flowers! :)

Love is in the air! :)

I know Valentine's Day has been and gone but I got a lovely email from Cinnamon Joe (the agency I work for) a couple of days ago saying that this piece had just sold. LOVE those emails!! :D

Hope everyone's having a good week :)

Can Spring really be here?

It's been sunny here all this week and I'm starting to believe that Spring may well be here- or at least on it's way!! I've tried to make the most of it and been out and about as much as I can.

It's been another busy week of getting orders out, putting Mother's day & Easter items in my shop, ordering supplies and getting up to date with my paperwork. Finally today I can get on with some designing- hooray!

The image above was created for a gift bag and just in case you thought it was odd that I used grey in my design, that indicates silver foil stamping- hard to imagine but there's nothing like a bit of silver foil to bring a design to life!

I'm not sure if I'll be back tomorrow as Phil and I may be visiting a wedding fair, so if I'm not have a great weekend everyone! :)
