To start off 2019 I’ve decided to take break and exercise my dormant artist muscle for a while 🎨 I’m suddenly feeling the need to explore creating for the pure love of creating... I may do some painting. Or maybe writing.  Or perhaps something I’ve never tried before.
My only rule is there are no rules! ✨🖌🖼📚🎼
Sometimes the best way to see things is to take a step back, and a deep breath.... Happy new year everyone 💛 #newyear2019
Come and visit me at my Harbourside stall today if you are looking for some pretty notebooks for stocking-fillers or a big lampshade-shaped main pressie! 💛 I’ll be doing some super discounts today 👍👍👍
Making the first of my new lampshade designs tonight ready for Sunday’s stall✨As soon as I have a spare minute they will be going up on the website too... this one is for my big feature shade from the Night Garden collection.  Any preorders let me know ASAP! 💛
Fabric delivery!!! ✨ My new collection is taking it’s dark shape and I’m very excited #nightgarden
Trying out some Christmas cards to go in my stall on the 16th 🌟 still playing around with my typewriter so not sure these will survive past the mess-about phase!
We found an old typewriter in our new house - I’ve been trying it out, but it takes a bit of practice!  Any tips to stop the keys sticking? #typewriting
Pattern, pattern, patterns everywhere #onmydesk
Very pleased to be finished with designing for my new collection, Night Garden... Now all that’s left is to wait for my fabrics to arrive and get making some new notebooks!  When I first had the idea for this I thought about just doing a straight gardening collection, with roses and watering cans and the like, but then I thought twice, I decided I would rather do something a bit different.  So here are the first pattern designs, in colours inspired by the dark plants and creatures of the night ✨🦋🦉🌿🌜✨
Too early? #nevertooearly #christmaswreath
What happens when I have fabric to play with!  I had some left over from an old order and so I decided to make this cushion cover as a late addition for my stall last Sunday 💙💛 If it’s popular I may add some to the shop!  This is still available - if you would like one just get in touch, or you come along to my next stall at the Bristol Harbourside Christmas fair on the 16th December ❄️☃️❄️
Lovely picture I had to share from @newtherose of one of my lampshades in a happy new home 💛 Any Bristol folk can pick one up from my stall tomorrow at the #bristolharboursidemarket #headtotheharbour
Very wholesome day spent volunteering at the #Catcott nature reserve.  Burning scrub from the watery marshlands on this massive bonfire 🍁🍂🔥 Now I’m having a well-deserved lie down with my cat
