Gosh, is it really that long since I blogged last?
Well, I must then fill you in on what I have been up to!
I’ve got into the Christmas spirit, that’s for sure.
A few weeks back I illustrated a little Robin that I named ‘Rocky’. Rocky has been adored by friends and family and he gave me an idea – Rocky could have his own Christmas Card range…
…Producing Rocky into a range of Cards for Christmas would also be a great opportunity to raise some money for my favourite Charity beat (www.b-eat.co.uk), the UK’s leading charity that supports people and their families with eating disorders.
I’m delighted to be able to produce these cards with the support of beat. The packs of cards of Rocky and his friends will be available to buy from my online shop, launching on MONDAY! (That’s Monday 9th November 2009 folks!) and I’ll give 50p to beat for every pack that’s sold. Hurrah!
The Shop on my website is the other project I’ve been working on. Finally getting my online shop open means that customers can now buy my work at a click of their mouse and can pay with credit cards securely online. Then I simply mail artwork out (or if you live locally I’ll deliver for free!). This means that can browse my work from your armchair. I buy so many things online these days, it just made sense for people to trade with me this way too.
And there’s new prints too! Two brand new prints for the modern, happy home, titled; ‘Smile you are beautiful’ and ‘Life’s great when you eat cake!’ These prints would make perfect gifts and would look great framed in your kitchen, or near to your desk at work – I have one above my desk in my studio. These prints are priced at just £15 (and free postage!)
I also have a print of the ever popular ‘Knoll Bay Beach Huts’ and ‘Cornish Blue’
… finally, I’ve taken up eating chocolate again. Well, it is Christmas after all and how can I possibly resist those tempting selection boxes in Marks and Spencer’s for just £3.99? I’d also forgotten how delicious Terry’s Chocolate Orange Segments were… I can see a trend!
