Live doodling photos!

I had so much fun doodling on the mirror at The Malt Cross on Thursday and I thought I'd share a few photos from the evening and introduce you to the cat themed doodle I took with me...

There were several other lovely Handmade Nottingham creative beans there too, including Deborah Ballinger Illustrations, UpsyDaisy Craft, Eloise MakesHannah Stevens Illustration and Dendiko. These photos below are ones the lovely Handmade Nottingham team took on the night...

As you can see, it was a busy evening with lots going on and I had so much fun that I hope I can join in again in the future if more events like this are planned! Make sure you check out the Malt Cross facebook page and the Handmade Nottingham page to check out more fab photographs shared on the evening!

THANK YOU! To each and every one of you who have sent birthday and holiday love my way recently. It's safe to say that I was completely spoilt and had the BEST fortnight full of adventures that I could have ever hoped for!

If you have been following my on instagram (@sunshine_jo) or over on my Hello Sunshine facebook page I'm sure you will have seen some holiday snaps popping up now and then but here's a little collage of some of my faves if you have missed out...

I'm still enjoying a bit of quiet time over the bank jollies but fear not, full Hello Sunshine service will resume on Tuesday when I will be responding to your lovely messages, posting orders and drinking more tea!
Have a lovely bank holiday!

Sunshine on a grey day

It's a little bit grey here in Nottingham today so I thought I'd share some sunshine.

Meet Sarah and Dave, this Sunshine was a gift and it was an absolute pleasure to doodle them and a few of their favourite things!
