Hello dear readers! How’s the start to your week been? It’s been a bit chilly though, right? Even though it’s been oh so very cold when the sun comes out though there’s that lovely warm feeling, even if it’s just for a split second. The air felt really crisp and fresh- I actually love it when it’s like this. In saying that, the transport in London literally freezes (there I said it) to a halt… and it makes commuting such a wonderful journey. I could go on about the trains but I’m going to have to bite my tongue as I’ll go off in a tangent!

 

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working hard at my presentation for Doncaster Central Learning Centre; I’ll be hosting an Etsy training workshop sometime in the next couple of months and I’m really excited about it. It’ll be my first training workshop as well so I’ve been planning and prepping a slide which I’ll be presenting to the attendees. I’ll post more about it once it comes closer to the date.

 

This post rounds up with some gift ideas for Mother’s Day, since it’s only round the corner (next week!).

**UPDATE: There’s currently 15% off everything in my Etsy shop (apart from the sale section) from now until the 10th March.**

 

I’m going to end my post here so that’s all for now. I hope you all have a brilliant week and thanks for reading and following my blog.

Happy, happy Sunday and Chinese New Year everyone! Hope you’re week has been an absolute blast. My folks came down on Friday to visit us so we’ve spent the past two days eating loads of delicious food! We went out last night for some Chinese food to celebrate CNY; it was absolutely jam packed at the restaurant but great to see loads of people having a really good time.

I’ve been on an Etsy mission lately and I’ve been designing load of new stuff in time for spring; I defo feel like my work has moved on and I wanted to make more new pieces of artwork for my shop. Well, it’s an excuse to draw unicorns!

Postcards are now available to buy in my Etsy shop, have a look here.

I’m going to end the post here as I need more coffee right now! Here’s my motto to the start of a new week: I wish you all good health, luck and fortune and may 2018 be a smashing year whatever it may be. Whether it’s achievements big or small keep going and don’t stop learning and growing. Surround yourself with the people you love, spend time with loved ones, always reflect and pause for a minute to appreciate the moment.

Boom!

Good evening folks! I hope your week has been an absolute blast. Mine? Pretty sweet actually, I’ve managed to spend quite a bit of time designing some new cards for my shop. I’m super pleased to say that they arrived today and now they’re available in my Etsy shop here.

New postcards to follow within the next few days so I’ll keep you all updated about it.

Enjoy the rest of your week and take care,

Good evening folks! How’s your week been so far? I just wanted to quickly post about some new A5 prints in my Etsy shop. I’ve finally gotten round to adding three A5 prints, which are now discontinued as I no longer do A5 prints. These are the last few designs and once they’re gone, well, they’re gone! Perfect for all ages and for only £5.00 they’d also make a great additional gift for someone special.

Thanks so much for reading this short post- will be back with more updates about new work and Etsy news.

I say this every year but this year seems to have whizzed by so quickly I’m not even sure where to begin. Over the summer we bought our very first house and, if I’m being very honest here, it was bloody stressful (I almost got teary at some point in the process) but it was definitely worth it.  I have to say, putting up our first Christmas tree was pretty special and I made a Mario angel decoration for the top of the tree:

In terms of how the house is going (DIY wise) it’s been going pretty well. We said adios to the laminate flooring (within half a day to be correct) and we now have beautiful wooden floors that are in pretty good knick. The plan for the coming months is to get the floors sanded, varnished, and probably sitting on the floor celebrating with a couple of beers!

I started the post about the house and veered off on a tangent… Now going swiftly back to my original point; my Etsy shop will be closed on Wednesday 21st as I’m going to be away for a few days. I need to rest my head and at the same time fill my belly up with food and watch Christmas films. All orders will be posted on Thursday 22nd December and it’ll be open again on Tuesday 3rd January… 2017!

Bring on 2017!
