Hello folks… can you see where I’m going with this?! I’m super pleased to announce that I’ve finally opened a Folksy shop! I’ve been meaning to do this for over a year now, but I never got round to it. Anyway, I thought I would give it a bash and see how it goes. Obviously I’m having to navigate my way round it as I’m going and it’s hard not to compare it with Etsy as the two user interfaces are completely different. I’m always up for trying out new things- it’s the best way to learn too.


I’ll be updating more products as I’m going, hopefully within the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned and support handmade local businesses!

Are you on Folksy? Are there any advice you could give to a newbie who’s just joined Folksy? What do you think of it? I look forward to reading your comments below. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy September everyone! The summer holidays sure did whizz by super quickly, right? With a blink of an eye I’m back at work again… there’s another six weeks or so before the next half-term so really when I think about it it’s pretty decent.

Just to announce that I’m having a big old sale over at my Etsy shop. All art prints (A4 and A3) have a whooping big 20% off- now until Monday 18th September so get them while you still can!

 

In other unrelated art news, I’m having an assessment with Mind next Tuesday for some counselling as my social anxiety/anxiety is getting worse as the years go on. It’s time I faced my problems head on and seek professional help. I’ve had anxiety for a very long time now, especially social anxiety, and big outings and events makes my skin crawl and my stomach do triple somersaults (no, I’m not exaggerating either). At the moment I can’t really face new people in a closed environment, I’m coping albeit smiles and random small talk but the thought of it makes me want to avoid things like that.

I’ll let you all know how the assessment goes so I’m hoping Mind will recommend some form of counselling sessions for me.

Thanks for reading my post as always and have a great week wherever you are!

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!

 

I’m super happy to announce that I’m now stocking my prints and cards at Hackney Pirates in Dalston! Please visit them as the charity does an amazing job supporting children and young people with their learning, plus the interior of the shop is brilliant! (Hint: it’s pirate related…)
