Yesterday, I brought myself the gorgeous Sony Nex 5, as my small compact just wasn’t cutting it any more. The picture, recently had dramatically fallen. Now, I am not an expert, but I will say that it handles very well. It has weight to it, like a proper metal camera. The lens (which is interchangeable) is brilliant. The picture quality is amazing! It was so worth it, and buying it now gives me a week, to get used to it before I take it on holiday. Above are just a few quick shots of some flowers in the garden, and a little shot of my cat, Scruffy, with her tongue out. She has no front teeth, so this is a regular look for her 😀  

             In other news, a pair of beautiful cushion covers, designed by Anke Weckmann arrived in the post today. I brought these from Envelop, and am so impressed with the quality! As a designer and seller on there, it’s nice to become a customer for once. These are part of the Lavender club collection, which you can buy HERE

This amazing piece of work, was a little collaboration between myself, and flyHerofly (aka Liam Smith). It seems an age away when he asked me to do some drawings with the intention that he would add his own style to them. I didn’t do everything on here, and much of the credit must go to him. I drew the tepees, deer, mountains, and sun, but the fun dancing Indians, totem, canoe, and trees, and the wonderful colour scheme is all down to Liam. 
Great work!! Check out the flyHerofly website HERE.

I was commissioned the other month by Cellardoor Magazine, to create a festival style poster for the article ‘The Summer Festival Survival Guide’. I also created some spot illustrations to go within the article depicting items associated with festivals. You may recognise the spots, as I did put them into a fun repeat shortly after-woods. Have a read of the magazine HERE.

Thursday the 1st September saw the Crafty Fox team back at the Dogstar in Brixton, for an evening of stalls, making, DJ’s and drinking. It was a great night and my second time having a stall at the event. It’s definitely the most social market I have been involved in. It took a day to recover from, though, as I had to carry all the things back on the tube to West London. 
You can see my new cushion in the picture, which is now available to buy up on my Etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/81007454/floral-sprigs-removable-pillow-cushion
Have a great weekend!
