Ooh! Look what arrived in the post today! I bought the concertina Owl print from the wonderfully talented Mr Jamie Mills over the weekend, and look at what came with it! 
As well as the Owl concertina I also received a print of his flying houses, a lovely business card and a pack of Cherry flavoured Space Dust. Christmas has indeed come early πŸ˜€
Go and check out his brand new shop now!

You may have seen the sketches, and now this is the final image. Having never really drawn flowers before (well I have many times, but never really worked on making them a finished design), I am pretty happy with the results. I plan on getting it printed as an A3 glossy poster to take to upcoming Christmas fairs. What do you all think?
Should I go ahead and get it printed? eeek!

My little Red Fox Pocket Mirror was lucky enough to be featured in The Guardian On-lines Unique Christmas Gift Ideas feature. It is a great opportunity to be seen by a wider audience, and also promotes the wonders of Etsy too. Also, it is my first press feature so I am pretty happy πŸ˜€ If you are interested in getting a mirror for yourself, please note that I am running out with only 6 Fox mirrors left, so get in there QUICK!

I will be selling at this years East London Craft Guerrillas Christmas Craft Emporium! If you live in London please come along and find me. I will be selling with a few friends of mine, because it is actually our first ever big fair, so we needed the support of each other. You can get to the William Morris Gallery on the Victoria line, and Overground. 
I am there on the Saturday 4th, but please remember that there are different designers, and crafters on both days, so make a weekend of it!
Hope to see you there!

I would love to share with you a collective I am part of, which we (my friends and I) set up recently. It’s called Together We Flew. I think the name fits perfectly as many of us are just starting to find our feet, or still have a way to go, and we, as a group will nurture and support each member. 
You can view the work of group members which actually covers a wide variety of disciplines from weaving, screen printing, illustration and knitting, as well as constructed textiles. It is well worth a look at if you are interested in these areas.

This weekend was spent designing snowflakes. I hand drew three designs, which you can see in the post below. The plan was to make them them into kits which can be easily constructed to make these simple Christmas decorations. these three are my first attempts. I am going to try printing on thicker card to give them more rigidity. You can buy the designs as little prints over in my etsy shop at the moment, no construction necessary. Click the SHOP tab at the top of my my blog posts πŸ˜€

I am currently prepping myself for a Christmas event that will be taking place in the foyer of the Barbican Centre, London. The concept of the vent is that everything must be sold for a minimum Β£3. I will be sharing the stall with two friends of mine, with whom we form the collective Together We Flew
These rough sketches taken from crochet designs, are my starting point. I hope to create simple 3D baubles, that can be easily made at home. I am currently working on the finals of the snowflakes, and will post them as soon as they are ready.
