I never need an excuse to send pretty post but when I saw the Secret Valentine Exchange on Instagram on the day it closed for entries I knew I had to sign up
Some creative inspiration despite the -1ºc temperature at the Magic Lantern Festival, Leeds
A recent holiday was the start of me trying to get back into sketching, and feeling very rusty
Time to get back to showcase some of my favourite indie designers/makers for the first Tuesday Talent of the year with Sean Mort Print Shop
With too much political turmoil hanging over 2016 I decided to start the year reflecting on our handmade Christmas instead
October wasn’t a good month for me but in tough times I turn to my sketchbook and creativity to escape so at least I have some sketches to share
I’m pleased to be a part of Team Leeds Etsy Made Local at Leeds City Museum on 3 Dec and wanted to share some of my fellow, talented designers and makers – not to be missed!
Seeing the world differently is something I encourage my son to do, and him spotting these ‘H for Harry’ features on our walk yesterday inspired me to continue with my alphabet illustrations
Yorkshire day seemed the perfect day for my Leeds illustration postcards to arrive, followed by good news of a Leeds event I’ve been accepted for in December
After a long week it’s time to enjoy some chilled time with my family and enjoying some time in Harry’s room with new teepee and decoration
Ohh Deer, more ice-cream
Please help me decide which ice-cream composition to enter into the Ohh Deer Pillow Fight Round IV competition.
I would love your suggestions on song lyrics on the subject of ‘hope and recovery’ for a postcard to raise money for Rethink Mental Illness.
Upcycling and Prototyping
Cutting up my hubby’s old t-shirts was a good excuse to try sewing some new patterns for my son
Work trips result in new inspiration and influences for upcoming sketches and projects from Dublin, Nottingham and Abersoch
My musical motivation at the moment comes from a Lifehouse gig I attended recently.
Bags of love for fabric but not the price
I can’t contain my excitement at finding a UK fabric printer that seems to be good quality, but once again very expensive, will I ever find what I’m looking for?
Sunshine on a rainy day
A very soggy trip to Leeds today, lucky Harry was dry in his pram in his ‘sunshine on a rainy day’ top that I made him.
Happy in Harrogate
A rare day of being a tourist locally in Harrogate at the WI Centennial Fair and Just Makers at RHS Harlow Carr
Grand old Town of Leeds
This weekend is the perfect opportunity to pop to the Grand Arcade in Leeds to buy my illustrations whilst checking out the 4 day Heritage Open Day events.
