New illustrated mugs for anniversary gift, Valentine’s Day, or *just because*. “If you were a bogey, I’d pick you.”

New to my Etsy shop: ceramic mugs with my illustration and the text “if you were a bogey, I’d pick you.” A special gift for your favourite bogey – the one you picked yourself! The mugs each have the same image/text on both sides and are available to buy here in my shop.

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 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.
