A couple of chilly looking Princesses...

A popular request for my latest mini project and seeing as I must have watched the film at least three times lately it seemed rude not to doodle these two lovelies...

Little black cats...

A cheeky little blog post to let you all know that this is going to be happening very soon...

Yup! That's right, CAT JEWELLERY!

I'm sure you all know how much my two tinkers mean to me so it was only a matter of time before this happened really. I hope you like the designs - be sure to keep an eye out for when they will be available to buy. They will be in Folksy and Etsy shops soon!

Raining (or sunshining) Cats & Dogs!

I have been itching to share these sunshines with you for a while and now I know that the lovely recipients have them in their hands I can introduce you to a few of my favourite Pet Sunshine so far!

First up meet Lollie & Belle, beautiful pooches with a penchant for Football and meerkats!

And this handsome fellow is Rex, one of two kitties I drew for a friend...

Second of the two kitties is Pablo (or Pabs for short). Such a beautiful, regal kitty with the coolest collar on in neighbourhood! 

You guys probably know by now how much I LOVE creating these Sunshine commissions and this little selection was no exception. The lovely owners and commissioners alike have sent me some wonderful feedback and over the weekend I received some amazing photo's that I just had to share too!

If you have had a sunshine doodled or received one (pets or people!) I would love to hear about it and always love to see photos where possible too. So please feel free to get in touch as I'd love to share them on my blog and facebook page!

I hope these guys have made you smile as much as they did me!

Introducing more Princesses...

At the weekend I shared the sketchbook scribbles and now I can share the colour version of four more Princess that I've added to my growing collection...

I hope you like them! I'm enjoying this mini project and it's awesome to know how many of you guys are real Disney fans too! I'd love to know what you think and who YOUR favourite Disney Princess is!

A few more Princess doodles...

This weekend I have been at the wonderful Bird in Borrowed Feathers & Handmade Nottingham Summer Market which has been brilliant so far! I've met some absolutely lovely stall holders and customers and despite the soggy weather we've had a great time inside with the cheery atmosphere!

Being sat behind a stall for a couple of days has also meant I've had some quality time with my sketchbook and I've been busy doodling more Princesses for my latest little collection...

Busy busy preparing for 3 WHOLE days of creative loveliness!

This weekend is the wonderful Bird In Borrowed Feathers Summer Market in Nottingham and I have been super busy preparing a new stall layout, organising some lucky dip bags, creating a HUGE sale box and getting lots of sunshine filled loveliness ready for you all!

There will be lots of wonderful stalls selling crafty goodness, vintage wares with food and drink available. There are also an abundance of fun filled workshops taking place over 3 days starting tomorrow and continuing all through Saturday and Sunday.

So make sure you pop in, have a cuppa, enjoy the fun and most importantly say Hello!  Hope to see you there with smiles a plenty!

A little bit of sunshine and Disney!

There are a couple of things that never fail to perk me up if I'm feeling a little out of sorts, a good Disney film and doodling. Throw in a cup of tea, some cheese and a hug and well... nothing can be wrong in the world!

Over the past couple of weeks I have been indulging in all of the above! A couple of weeks ago I shared a sneaky peek of the start of a new mini project over on my facebook page :

It sparked a wee bit of excitement and I am now SUPER EXCITED to share the finished doodles with you and announce that they will be available to purchase too! YAY! So without further waffle I would like to introduce you to 4 Princesses...

I would really like to know what you think of my new project and more importantly would LOVE to know who your favourite Disney Princess is as I am itching to grow the collection!

The happiest van and dog ever!

This weekend we stayed in the most perfect camper van down in Somerset - I mean how perfect is this beaut? She's yellow and everything!

We also met the world's happiest pooch ever! She was perfectly lovely, such a gorgeous dog. It's safe to say I fell in love, how couldn't you with a face like that??
