A new place to live...

I'm enjoying living in our new place. It was a bit stressful moving everything, but it's been fun finding places for all our things. I also have a nice spacious room to do my drawings in. Lovely! I've recently been a little bit addicted to painting furniture to..... Some of it has little bird friends on!

It has been a busy week.

What a week...

I have had quite a few wedding invitation commissions of late. I have very much enjoyed listening to some wonderful ideas and turning them into designs. 

The actual making of the invitations takes a rather long time. I end up surrounded by paper and ribbon, but it's always nice to see them all stacked up in a box ready to post....

Do you ever get that post office feeling? I love going into my local post office armed with parcels and then leaving empty handed. Sometimes I skip back home!

Hello everybody! 

It has been such a long time since I make a blog post. 

My poor macbook broke just before Christmas, leaving me with lots of work to do and no way of doing it! 

I have now got a shiny new macbook pro and it's wonderful. 

I hope you all had a fun festive season. Mine flew by in a flash but it was very lovely all the same. 

Have you made a reading list for the new year? As you probably know I don't own a television, which means I have more time for reading and drawing. (Which are both better activities in my opinion.)

Here is my reading list so far, do let me know of any books you'd like to recommend! 

- Doctor Zhivago (I am halfway through this. Super)
- Rebecca
Huckleberry Finn
- Jane Eyre
- Madame Bovary
- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
- Anna Karenina 
- The Call of the Wild 

 I think all cutlery should have little smiling faces. Don't you? 
I have been having fun making lots of wedding invitations recently. 
However it's always nice to sit down and make some drawings and paintings which are unrelated to anything else you're doing.
