I Love Happy Customers...


A recent customer who purchased one of my bespoke 'quote' designs is so thrilled with the canvas she ordered for a friend that she has just ordered an exact replica for herself! I love happy customers!!


The bespoke quote was created using my signature quotes/lyrics/poems design (see pic). I can't share what it was but it was so cute I had to create it as soon as I got the order through!


My quote for the day...'don't sweat the small stuff' ;-)

Oh, and just entered Junior Vogues competition...check it out...JuniorVogue

Tweet tweet...

Finally managed to get a little spot on Twitter so need to work on building a few followers :-) It's quite addictive as I'm sure those who use it will agree.

The site has a few new photographs, mainly for the baby/children designs as we get ready for BabyExpo in a few weeks. More to come. Also beavering away on a new range of nursery prints and trying out new fine art quality archival paper this week to ensure they come out looking as fab as they are.

A couple lovely 'quotes' orders arrived over the weekend and it's been fun designing those. I love creating something so personal to someone.

Anyway, more designs to work on (including our own gift vouchers, coming soon!) so must get cracking.

A shot that does my little teapot justice.....




Bless my little teapot. I love this one. A Nice Cup of Tea', design is completely composed of the words from George Orwell's essay on how to make the perfect cuppa.

Any photos taken so far have been from my trusty little Canon IXUS, which is clearly now well past its sell-by-date, so it's lovely to see some of the professional ones coming through. Here's a little taster of the detail on one of my limited collection designs.

More to come in the next month!

Busy bees....

Happy Wednesday! It's been a busy old time since the last update. Lots more orders and exciting new creations in the making.

A gorgeous new 'little ones' collection is underway, to be unveiled at BabyExpo on June 27th. Stand 138 has our name on it! We'll also be running a couple of promotions on the day so stay tuned for more details if you're one of the 3000+ people planning on visiting the show.

Some new prints from the Limited Collection are ready for photographing (professionally!) so today we met with an up-and-coming local photographer, Tom Pizzey, to have a chat about shooting some of our designs. Very exciting.

I realised today how obsessed I am with fonts, type and printing formats, strange but true! It's funny how you can go your whole life without noticing certain things and then begin noticing them all the time.

That's all for today!

Design Inspiration?




The feedback and support so far has been amazing, thanks to all.


I see things all the time that inspire me to create something new. Sometimes I wake up at 4am with an idea in my head that I have to write down or I can't get back to sleep! I've got new little notebooks everywhere with my scribbles in.

Hmm, which one shall I start on next? Stylish suggestions always welcome of course!
