Good evening folks! How are you all? I hope your week has been a good one- yay for that weekend feeling too!

I’m really happy to say that for Etsy’s International Women’s Day  they’ve selected one of my prints to feature alongside other sellers, that is, celebrating all things handmade by creative women in business. I couldn’t be anymore happier than to be part of something inspirational; I made that print for myself as I was in a bad patch a while back. That quote, for me, made me realise that I’m in control of my own life and whatever I’m doing I should be free and happy to make those choices. The pursuit of happiness and satisfaction with the way I think and feel is something I’ve been working on for a very long time. Some days it’s a struggle, but other days I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Do you ever get that feeling where sometimes you feel like you’ve lost control of everything? It’s not a very nice feeling I have to say! I’ve found by talking about my feelings to close friends it’s helped a lot to get over those overwhelming feelings. Put it this way, we are all part of something very big- like- we’re the stars in the night sky all connected to one another in one way or another. And when I think like that it puts things into perspective; take each day as it goes and build up on your strengths.


There’s obviously still loads more progress that needs to be made even in this day and age (meaning global changes) in terms of the economic inequalities such as pay, the verbal and online abuse women face because of their job title particularly women politicians (see Stylist’s article about this), and the constant objectification of women in the media. Let’s all come together and give a massive shout out to all the women and girls out their making their dreams and ambitions come true. Strength in numbers I say!

Here’s to the future: the future is female. Now let’s smash that bastard glass ceiling to the ground.

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!).

From top left to right: You’re the Best Card, Swan Postcard, Little Blue Bird Pocket Mirror, Together Fine Art Print, The Blue Bird Fine Art Print, Small Emerald Green Necklace

 

**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.

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,

Oh dear! I’m a little bit behind with updating my Etsy shop. My bad! I’ve been meaning to add new products ages ago but this thing called time there’s never enough of it during the day! I’m delighted to share with you all two new pocket mirrors and notebooks now available in my Etsy shop.

Winter Flowers Notebook: £3.00

Summer Flowers Notebook: £3.00

Set of Two Notebooks £5.00

Unicorn and Swans Pocket Mirror: both £3.00 each

Swans Pocket Mirror: £3.00

Unicorn Pocket Mirror: £3.00

If you’re still looking for that perfect gift then have a look in my Etsy shop. I will be closing it this week for a couple of days so get your orders in as soon as possible if you’d like it shipped before the big day!

Christmas is literally round the corner, and with that in mind, I’ll be closing my shop over the Christmas period from 22nd December until 2nd January 2018. I need to put my feet up and take a well deserved break! So now is the time to make any last minute purchases!

I would like to say a massive thank you to all my customers who have supported me this year; by buying from me you are supporting a tiny, independent business who’s passion for producing beautiful artwork for all is a dream come true! I hope 2018 will be a year for happy times, good things to come, positive vibes and continuing to grow and learn from previous experiences.

Of course, an obligatory post of ‘2017 highlights’ will come, but until then here’s a photo of Mario looking uber handsome. Just because.
