Drawing into 2017 -Valentine’s, weddings, and easter illustrated!

2017 brings a new creative urge to make use of ideas that have been hibernating in sketchbooks and journals throughout 2016! I’m not going to lie, some of them have probably been waiting since 2012 to be born. Half of my time now is dedicated to Digibloom, my one-woman-business that champions and supports creative small businesses.

The other half is spent working on illustrations and fulfilling my need for creative expression. 2017 is about sustaining a work/life balance for me, so there is also yoga and t’ai chi, family time, and long nature walks to keep the inspiration and wellbeing tuned up.

So what have I been working on?

Valentine’s Day cards:

Bogies!
This card is my best seller at the moment!

My new sloth Valentine’s card is currently only available via Thortful.com. You can find it here.

Valentine’s Day gifts

Personalised couple egg cups with names on the back.

The names on the back are handwritten in ribbon banners. They come as a pair so make a thoughtful and personal gift idea for a couple celebrating Valentine’s Day, their wedding, or an anniversary! The egg cups have multiple uses, such as little succulent planters, ring holders, and candle holders.

Etsy UK ‘Pimp My Table’ Festive Knees-up

Etsy UK Christmas party is taking place in London on December 14th (tomorrow!)

Everyone is welcome, you don’t need to be an Etsy member.  The idea is you bring some unloved crockery or nab some at a charity shop.  Hang out with fun, like-minded peeps in the Etsy Christmas Grotto where you can doodle on your ceramics using special markers from our pals at Pebeo!

We’re also giving away free (cheeky) wrapping paper & tags that I designed for Etsy (see my Twitter background) so you can gift your amazing works of art as Christmas presents.  Upcycling and re-gifting is the name of the game.  Etsy will also provide winter edition tote bags & other items, free drinks (alcoholic + soft drinks), & munchables.

Check out the photos from our event last week with the lovely peeps from Crafternoon Tea Party!

The event is free to attend but space is limited, you can book in advance here to avoid disappointment.

Hope to see you there!
