Found Art Friday!

I know it's not technically Friday, but I'm pretending it is! :) Here is my offering for this months Found Art Friday theme "Golden". Again not my usual style, but I really enjoy the chance to experiment every month and that I never know what I may come up with next- pushing my boundaries so to speak!

I hope you like my "Golden Bird"

P.S To those of you in the UK- have a great Bank Holiday weekend! :)

Lots of little Ladybirds have been flying around my garden in the last few days and it's been so warm, ice-cream eating weather! Very unusual for the UK- but I am certainly not complaining. Today looks like it'll be another scorcher so I'll be making as many excuses as I can to get outside! :)

♥ Home Sweet Home ♥

Hello everyone. This is my first day back working from home :) I have a stack of paperwork and emails to shift through but I'm nearly done. Although I enjoyed working in design studio again I have to say for me personally I still LOVE working from home and to my own schedule. I've always wondered in the back of my mind whether down the line I would start to miss working with people in a creative environment but it's been nearly two years now and I'm still as happy as ever! Long may it continue!

The design above was taken from a range of cards I designed for International Greetings. Hope you like!

Back soon x

Spring Gardening & A Giveaway!

What a busy week I've had! The week I thought I was going to have turned into an even busier week and I have literally not stopped right up to this minute! I thought I would take a break and write this post :)

We've had amazing weather this weekend so Phil's been out doing a spot of gardening, I've been having my tea breaks outside and the bunnies have been out sunbathing too! All of which inspired me to show you this little design today.

Oh and guess what? I've reached 40 blog followers! Hooray! Therefore as promised it's time for a Giveaway. I'm going to let the winner pick a prize which can be anything from either of my shops (except for the original paintings and Thingamajigs). All you need to do to enter is leave a comment below and I'll announce the winner next Sunday (18th) evening. Which leads me to say a BIG, BIG thank you to all of you who visit me here regularly and follow my blog. Thank you for all your support and lovely comments- it means a lot :)
