Further to the last post, I have been working away on my gifts for my friends’ wedding. I have procrastinated a lot not made great progress. So far I have a 1/4 finished blanket and a few ideas for the card.  This is what I want to write about today. I’ve had a few ideas of card designs and I need some opinions on them! The couple are very into music and vintage design (in particular, that of the 1960s). So these are the ideas I have had for images to put on the card. Both are drawn using Stabilo point 88 fineliners.

Idea 1 is a picture of the couple. I’ve done it in green here but really it could be any colour.


The other option was a more abstract psychedelic image with just the date of the wedding and their names. My main issue with this is does it look more like a doodle than a wedding gift/card?

This is unfinished but you get the picture (boom boom!).

If either of these images were usable I’d mount them on a white card.

HELP! I’ve spent so long looking at these drawings that I can’t tell if they are usable or not. My bf  is far too polite to say anything is wrong with them so I need some honest opinions, are either usable or should I quit this and buy a card. I can’t spend too much more time on the card as the blanket is so far from finished!

Love is in the air

It’s getting to that time of year again. Valentines Day is a mere 27 days away. Time to start thinking about what to get your dear beloved. I’m not one for going over the top at Valentines Day- I think you should show your love every day of the year. However, everybody loves to receive a card on Valentines day. Whether it’s from you lover, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, or parent you always get a thrill. So I decided to make some Valentines goodies. I started with a loveheart brooch which I would love to wear all year round.

Available from EtsyI haven’t got my shop on here up and running yet but you can buy it on Etsy. I also used the same design to make a Valentines Card, also available on Etsy. I’m looking forward to trying out some different designs this week.

Finally another brooch. This time all cut with pinking shears and featuring red felt and navy red and white baseball design cotton. I love these little brooches. I’ll be wearing them all year round. There can never be too much love!


Work In Progress…

Welcome to my little site. I am currently trying to get everything designed and uploaded on the site. After that I will get stock photographed and uploaded. It’s very exciting but very busy so I apologise if the site seems slow to develop.

In the meantime if you’d like to get in touch about anything or have any words of wisdom I’d love to hear from you!
