You can still get these cards in the shops if you are looking for some sparkly gorgeousness for the festive season. Designed for Cherry Orchard Publishing last year, they are the Christmassy designs which were added to the Oh La La! range.

Sketchbook time!

You get busy, you have deadlines, demands from children, work and other boring domestic stuff it's not surprising that sketchbook work goes out the window. I've been following the Pattern Observer's  5 day shake up this week which has been a fab reminder to take time to be creative and explore. Take a look here and do it too, it's free!

Hiding!



















Every year, I decorate the house Halloween stylee, I make a spooky supper (green spag bol or hot dog witches fingers and a dessert of jelly with body parts in or slime aka green yoghurt) and then we walk around the streets Trick or Treating. This year my daughter is too cool to go out and I guess will be in her bedroom on her phone and my son is going out with his mates dressed up as scary clowns! Hubby and I are redundant, we are not needed anymore for the Halloween extravaganza which seems to gain momentum every year. Instead, we'll be hiding behind the sofa with the lights off. Don't knock we aren't in and I haven't bought any sweeties anyway...

Wise words
















































I collect wise words and write them in sketch books. Sometime they help make sense of the world. Have a fantastic weekend : )

Harvest Festival

























At primary school we always had a harvest festival assembly in September. The centre piece was a spectacular sculptural work of art made out of bread. I remember being intrigued by it's intricacy and it's massive size. We were encouraged to collect leaves, conkers and berries to add to what I now realise was a display of gratitude (I went to a very religious school). We also had to donate tins and jars of preserved food that we took to local old folk (the old lady I met had no teeth and frightened me to death). It was quite an event and helping with the display was defo my favourite part of the Autumn term.

Ice cream anyone? Lolly? 99?





















I worked on these prints last week but forgot to put them on here. There's so much social media stuff to keep on top of I loose track of what I've posted where sometimes. I will design some co-ordinates to go with these at some point too : )

A very sunny Luton Carnival 2017






























Thankfully The Luton Carnival was a very peaceful event, people for all religions and cultures celebrating together, the costumes were inspiring and the music loud - brilliant! Nice to visit my old stomping ground too as I grew up in Luton. It felt very nostalgic to be back in such a familiar place.  : )
