Get your skates on!

Here's two skating girls. I've not been ice-skating for years, but I fancy another go, perhaps not on a frozen pond.

Santa squeezing down the chimney!

My daughter is very concerned that santa won't be able to fit down our chimney because it is quite narrow. This one's for you Lois, I reckon he can just about squeeze down.

cold and frosty morning



It's such a beautiful morning, I thought I'd share some pictures of frosty trees. It's looking very Christmassy!

Mother's day card

I thought I'd have another go at the Tiger print competition this month. This is my design, I wanted to keep it fairly simple, but pretty.

Eat your greens!

Here is a little bit of a retro-feel veg design I've been working on. I love drawing food - and eating it!

messy desk

This is my desk! I like to have lots of inspiration around me, which is my excuse for it being a bit of a mess. This isn't the worst bit either. I might tidy it up one day... sometime before Christmas!

Beautiful trees

This is part of  design for girl's bedding, I 've been doing quite a few with pretty trees on.  I love trees, and think it's really important that we look after our precious woodland.

painting...

Seeing as it's so cold and frosty today, I thought I'd brighten things up with a bit of a painting I did a long time ago. I've not had my paints out for ages - maybe I ought to dig them out!

A bit of snow?

There's been just a tiny bit of snow up on the hills today, and its frrrrreeezing! Wonder if we'll have a white Christmas this year...

Busy traffic

We did at lot of this over the weekend - sitting in traffic!!! Why are there always roadworks where I want to go? This design is part of a collection of work for boys bedding I'm doing for Heimtex in January. I will hopefully have lots of nice designs by then!

Cuppa tea anyone?

I'm just having my morning cuppa, and thought I'd share a teacups design I did a while ago. I think this design was inspired by my mum, who loves her cups of tea, and collects lots of blue and white china!

There seem to be a lot of owls around at the moment! Lots in the shops on prints, and some very noisy ones behind our house at night. Here is part of an 'owls in the woods ' design.
