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.  : )

Club Tropicana - fabric swatches have arrived - yey!

I got my hands on some Club Tropicana ACTUAL fabric last week. Dashwood Studio's kindly sent me some sample swatches - yey! I think this is my favourite print in the range. I'd like a simple top in this fabric, will have to get my sewing machine out. I LOVE green so much (used to hate it as my school uniform was green but enough years have passed to forget the bogey green-ness of school days). Thanks Dashwood, my designs look so fab on fabric - really pleased.

Phoenix Cards

Copyright Stephanie Thannhauser for Phoenix Cards

I'm not really a sports car sort of person, I would prefer to spend the money on a holiday to be honest. However, if you know someone who likes flash cars then you might like to buy them this card. I designed it for Phoenix Cards and it's in their range at the moment. You can see it and buy it here.

I don't physically wrestle (my Nanna Mag loved watching actual wrestling on the telly and I remember as a kid being fascinated by her punching the air shouting at the television "GET 'IM, GET 'HIM!"). In fact, I don't like any sort of aggression but crikey sometimes when you are creating a piece of work it feels like you are in a fight, trying to tame it, looking for it's weak points and trying to get it under control. Knowing when to give up and being able to move on from that so called "failure" and start again can be difficult too. First world problems and all that, but if you are creative you'll know what I mean : )

Club Tropicana strike offs - hurrah!

The strike offs are in. I created this range for Dashwood Studios last year and seeing the designs on fabric is ace. Whilst designing this I couldn't stop singing the Wham song. I've often got a song in my head related to the work I'm working on. Sometimes it can be an ear worm that just won't go until I move onto something else. Club Tropicana will be in the shops in Spring/summer 2017 can wait to get my hands on some fabric myself : )

Happy St Valentines Day!

Did you know that eight hugs a day helps you maintain good mental health. You need to show you love someone everyday not one day a year when the shops want to sell you stuff though I reckon : )

Happy Birthday Starman

Creating FANTASTIC music right till the end. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this song. Bowie's music has been the sound track of my life. Feeling sad he's gone but SO happy he lived to share his art with us.

Happy 2017!

I know I'm a bit late sending good wishes for 2017 but I deliberately avoided my computer for 10 days but it's back to work for me today.  It was great to have a nice long break from work and eat crisps. I have eaten a mountain of crisps. I hope everyone enjoyed the festive season and that Father Christmas was kind. Onwards and upwards then and lets hope 2017 is a better year than last....
