Cutting and Sticking

what a lovely day I had yesterday....making these pop ups!
I think the snowman looks especially happy.
I'm not normally a big fan but think I'm getting into this making lark now!
(Apologies for the poor quality photos...only had my phone camera to hand)
A dull day today though....after avoiding my books for far too long I can delay no longer...
time to sort my accounts!

today I am a wedding stationer!

From time to time I create wedding stationery....the image above shows my latest commission for a wedding coming up in February 2010. More to do today....high summer wedding this time. I do enjoy it as makes a change and is nice to be in touch with the future brides!

I set up a website showing my designs and more information,
I like to do new designs to suit customers though rather than the designs shown online.
Check it out here if you fancy it!

Charley Harper

I've been aware of Charley Harper for a little while now thanks to
my friend, (another Harper!) at rahrahrepeats.
I found this great print by Charley Harper on a blog recently which as sparked my interest in this brilliant artist!
You can see more of his work here I reckon the 2010 calendar could well be in my Christmas list!

A day trip to sunny Paris

On wednesday I had a day trip to Paris, we flew early from East Midlands airport and had a great time pottering around, we picked up some good reference. We managed to fit in going to Galeries Lafayette, Bon Marche, then a few little shops, and lunch of course!
It was soooo sunny....not a cloud in the sky!! Was lovely to be in Paris, I hadn't been for years....hopefully my next trip will be for a long weekend!
'Twas super day!

Here's Gary!

Ha ha! Surely this must be my most geeky post! But its true we do love him!
Gary is our cat, an adopted stray who's really made himself at home with us! The prettiest Gary I've ever seen!
I couldn't resist putting up this photo that my friend Nikki took for us with her new camera, check it out here

World Tapestry

Last September I had the fantastic opportunity of working on a babywear range for Mamas and Papas. I throughly enjoyed it and was a fun challenge.....and now the range is in store and online here

I produced the print, embroidery and some of the add ons for the range, the girls in-house did a super job of designing the garments! And someone has found some super cute little ones to model the range, has been wonderful for me to see!
