A busy summer!

A hand painted wooden doorstop for my studio door.

I can't believe three months have passed since I last updated the blog! Wow- I've been busier than I thought!  Here's a few snapshots of recent goings on.  New products and seasonal cards to be announced very soon...  TTFN

June roundup!

Screen printing in the studio...
My garden is coming to life, lots of colour!
A great write up about my work in the July/August issue Craft & Design magazine.
And here's a two page write up in Gift Focus magazine, July/August edition.  Thrilled to have such kind words said about my work!
A new limited edition screen print: 'Good Times Roll'.
'Good Time's Roll is currently being shown in Cambridge Contemporary Crafts as part of their Tour de France exhibition.  It's also available online in my Etsy and NOTHS shops.
And finally, here's a highlight of my month... a kiss from a baby owl!

House Plant Heaven

 Today I've added two new products to my Etsy and NOTHS shops, 'House Plant Drinks Coasters' (shown above) and 'House Plant Notepads' (shown below). 

These two came about after a series of drawings I created based on my collection of cacti and succulent house plants.  Both are fully hand screen printed including the packaging.  The notepads come in mint/black and green/black colourways and the coasters come in a pack of five containing one of each colour shown in the photos above. 

A little injection of kitsch colour suitable for any table!

Here's a sneak peek of a new feature started today over on my Facebook page, Novelty Print Thursdays!  I thought this one seemed appropriate to include with the new House Plant range.  I'll be showing a fabric pattern from my personal collection of vintage clothing every Thursday, why the heck not?!

New Shoppers!

Introducing 'Shake, Rattle & Roll' and 'Cocktail Time', two new designs just in time for summer! Both designs are hand screen printed onto thick cotton canvas shopper bags which have shoulder length back straps.  Nothing like a bit of vibrant summery colour, these bags could be used for a shopping trip, picnic, beach excursion, lots of summer fun.  They're available in my Etsy shop and NOTHS shop now.

Hope you're enjoying the lovely weather!

Sheffield Print Fair

Here's a few pictures from the Sheffield Print Fair yesterday at the Millenium Gallery in Sheffield. Sorry for the not-so-great photo quality, my bag was so heavy I couldn't fit the camera in so took these using my phone.  You can get a feel for the stall layout at least!

It was a busy day with lots of great print makers displaying a huge range of art work for sale.  I had a catch up with the wonderful Sarah Waterhouse who's stall of hand printed fabrics looked fantastic, full of great colours.  Also nice to meet Zoe of Zebedee Print who creates amazing mid-century inspired lino cuts.

Today I'm back home having a much needed day off with a spot of Leon inspired baking.  Lemon bars on the way this afternoon and some hanging baskets to plant up for my garden.
