Beautiful leather sale.

I also popped down to Brighton's MADE '09 craft fair at the end of November where I bought these lovely Maxine Sutton notelets, love the compositions, and also bumped into Wolfran Lohr who is currently stocking some of my cards and is holding a sale on his beautiful handmade leather products this Saturday the 19th Dec. Very exciting and probably dangerous, I loved the invitation.


Brighton is such an amazing place to see different styles and ideas. Last weekend I dropped into a local craft fair at Komedia on the hunt for Christmas presents and fell in love with Saffron Reichenbacker's illustration style and use of bold colour.
More of Saffron's work can be seen at www.saffronreichenbacker.co.uk

On a different note I happened to catch a bit of the mighty boosh last night and as ever very funny but I also loved the 70's patterns and crazy colours they use, brilliant!

Lil Peeps.

Again, SUPERCUTE to see my lil peeps animated!! How exciting!
Click on the link below to order and send a no postie!! x


Imagine how excited I was to see that the company I worked for 2 years before becoming freelance had animated some of the characters I created while I worked for them!!
Above are the Tinkers and you can see more examples by following this link www.nopostie.com


I wanted to do some pattern work featuring feathers as they are so beautiful and the challenge seems to be not to use too much purple!!

Purple patterns.

Over the weekend I began these patterns which could be used for so many things scrapbooking,
stationery, giftwrap...

Fashion brights.

Developed with fashion in mind, purple seems to be increasingly popular on the streets of Brighton as is lace...yummy colours.


My handmade cupcakes have been made to make your mouth water!!


I have been working on some more feminine designs the last few days and I have included an embroidery design that I finished earlier this year to the right.

Mexican Influences.

I have been meaning to put these 2 posts on for ages, the heart was a gift from a friend when I first moved to Brighton from Mexico and I love the colours decorative elements and shiny bits!
It was an influence for this design I produced at the beginning of the year, I love heavy embroidery and I intend to explore the idea further next year.

These designs were inspired by some of my Dad's paintings from back in the 80's, been meaning to work on them for ages...this is just the beginning...

So last week I managed to catch up on some much needed creative time and developed these floral designs using photographs I have taken along the way.
