As I find myself working through bits and bobs I want to update I realise how much I have done since going freelance, now in my 5th year no less I love that I have explored and learnt so much already, being freelance has had many scary moments and I am sure there will be more to come as I embark on my new venture with I Drew This cards but I wouldn't change it for the world, happy Mondays all you lovely creative people x
We got back last night from a really nice break away visitng friends and all their little kiddies, great to get some time out and now very slowly getting back up to speed and reminding myself how much there is to be striking off the list in prep for the show, it was v nice to walk into the studio this morning and find I Drew This listed in the PG Show News.
Just before we went away I did my first photo shoot with Kate Trevor, Kate is a photography student I met at the Christmas Fairy Tale Fair, it was a learning curve for us both but we got some good shots and we are looking forward to doing some more soon, here is one of my Happiness range which has been going down rather well so far round these parts :)
one of the thing Lilla Rogers suggests in her book is to collect inspiration over a week or so and then have a look to see any similarities, I decided to see what I was drawn to over the weekend and here they are, on Sunday Olive and I made her this little friend and did paint butterflies and there yes you can see my colour palette forming!! Today I will be applying this to my final range, which is very nearly there before stopping to crack on with organising my stand, coming round quick now and have to admit sleeping is getting harder as every time I wake up I cant stop thinking about everything there is to do but trying to stay calm and take every day as it comes at the mo and breathe!!
