Crikey - it's a windy ol' day for June, isn't it - let's hope the forecast is right and Summer finally takes hold after today!!!
If you're in or around the London area, then why not pop down to Progressive Greetings Live where a selection of my work is currently available and on display with Inspire Art Licensing, along with a collection of other fabulous designers and illustrators...it's our debut too, so fingers crossed it's a successful outing for us ;) Here's some birthday designs that I have been working on in the run up....

June....a time for weddings.....here's a few little bespoke bits and pieces I was asked to create for a lovely couple earlier this year; I thoroughly enjoyed designing these and they were very well received - hope I get the opportunity to do more soon ;)

Ooops - I did it again....the long pause before I'm back posting again; so sorry! :-/
I've been busy, busy, busy behind the scenes - juggling my designing, crafting and parenting...I'm even getting to grips with the sewing machine myself - woo-hoo for me!! :)))) Anyway, I'd just like to let you all know about a fabulous event I'm doing tomorrow with all of my handmade Ree-Stitch wares.....pop along for tempting handmade and vintage goodies, gorgeous walks, and a tasty morsel or two at the newly opened cafe! Spread the word folks.... :)

Phew - it's a scorcher, hey?! Seems wrong to be doing all of these festive bits right now, but hey, that's the life of a freelance designer!! (one that does cards and such like anyway!!) Here's some snapshots from my screen today...now to have a go at a little baby art; I've not dabbled in that area for quite some time, and feel it's time for a change! NEXT!!

My gorgeous cousin (and beautiful bestie) is expecting the pitter-patter of tiny feet very soon - I'm sooooo excited, and as a gift to her on her birthday I created a special one-off piece to put up in the nursery....
- we visited her earlier this week and got to see the finished room in all its glory - it is gorgeous....here's a couple of shots I took - you can see the framed artwork above little one's cot....and the bunting and cat cushion are all courtesy of my new venture - Ree-Stitch - specially commissioned pieces to finish the room off nicely....what do you think?
- With only a week to go now until her due date we wish her all the love and luck in the world and cannot wait to meet her little bundle of joy x x x

Here's a little snippet of what I've been working on this week.....
- oh, how I love to think of Christmas and snow in the middle of summer!! ;D
Have a great weekend everyone x x x

Very happy (and relieved) to say that Surtex went pretty well for me this year.....this poinsettia design did particularly well; you will soon be able to find it on cards, tissue paper and party paperware over in the US - keep an eye out if you're over that way! ;D

....Two of my designs in print! I was having a little browse on Pinterest yesterday (as you do!) and stumbled across some of my work that I sold over at Surtex last year - you can find it here from a company called Total Paper in Mexico. It's not very often that I get to see my work published as most of it is overseas, so it was a nice little surprise to find these jumbo gift bags yesterday.....
....I think they've turned out pretty well, don't you? - a little tweak from them here and there, and a splash of foil to add to the mix - here are some snapshots of how the original designs looked:

Was helping my mum have a big clearout over the weekend and came across a little book full of scribblings from when I was the ripe ol' age of 6......
.....finds like this are so precious; don't you think? :)

Wow - it's been a whirlwind of a week and it's only Wednesday!! Much activity and preparation going on in readiness for this year's Surtex, coupled with a fabulous vintage and craft event over the weekend - I've been rushed off my feet! Anyway, it's now time to take a little breather and hope that all my efforts have not been in vain....here's a cheeky snippet of what you can expect of mine in New York next week.....

It's been on the cards for a while, but we have finally got round to setting up our own little Etsy shop for our Ree-Stitch makes - it's all very early days at the moment, so only a few listings so far, but we're hoping to add more soon.....please hit the Etsy link on the right hand side of the page, or click here to have a little browse :)

As well as my core designing work I have been continuing on the craft fair side of things too....usually our stall consists of lots of lovely things that I have designed, but have been lovingly sewn and put together by the fabulous Elizabeth and Ruth. For our latest fair, however, I added a few printed items to the mix...all designed and created by moi; these have been well received and yesterday my first mailing of a framed piece arrived happily with it's new owner....here's a little looky:
- I have one more left, and hoping that it will find a new home when I will be manning the stall again; this time in Ashby-de-la-Zouch - click here for more details. If you would like to know more about my little ventures with Ree-Stitch, then please click on the link in the right hand column or here...
When I created the design I liked it so much that I thought it might be quite nice to create a Christmas equivalent in the hope that it would be licensed....I'm happy to say it has just been sold this week, over in the good ol' US of A; here's a sneaky peek at it:

A snapshot from my screen today......a little jump from Christmas to Halloween; and just starting to put this wrap design together - will sneak you a further peek once it's all finished, but for now it's back to it! ;)

Hello lovelies - how was your weekend? We had a fabulous time; lots of browsing at fellow designer-makers and vintage fare....we even picked up a couple of bits along the way......
- gorgeous 50s melaware; we couldn't resist these beauties!!
- this fun vintage-inspired Kelloggs bottle from the fabulous Splendid and Tremendous..
- and we picked up some FREE CAKE courtesy of the event holders The Vintage Suitcase...along with free entry too; I was the lucky competition winner over on Facebook...who'd have thunk, eh?! Never, ever win ANYTHING, so was very shocked and happy!! ;D
- Freya enjoyed it too!!! ;P And check out her gorgeous little headband....picked up from Design@44 on Saturday; she looked adorable!!! These are created by Hopscotch Crafts :)

I love it when I get things finished at the end of a working week - makes me enjoy the weekend sooooo much more; no guilty feelings or dread of having to face the same piece of artwork for another day - can start the new week with fresh eyes and new ideas; yippeeee!! Here's a little set I've just completed (well; a glimpse at least!)
It's promising to be another fun weekend too; filled with lots more family time and a bucketful of vintage loveliness - I cannot wait!! Enjoy yours, whatever you may up to x x x
