Bye bye 2008!

2008 has been a pretty amazing year for me, I feel like I have achieved so much, getting my Masters and setting up my business in the Craft Centre has been brilliant. Setting clear goals for myself has really helped, so I'm going to do the same for the up coming year.
Of course, it hasn't been without it's trials and heartaches, but I've learnt that negative feelings won't last forever.
So 2009 is all about positive thinking, hard work and hopefully some adventures!

Positivity abounds!

Despite some rather reckless festive behaviour over the past few days, the week has started on a distinctly positive note. My work has been featured in an etsy treasury for the first time, so I'm pleased.
Also, I got a reply to the email I sent to small, the gorgeous online kid's magazine I mentioned a wee while back. They like my work and have bookmarked my site for a later date! Hurrah!
Sales have picked up over the past few weeks and this girl is feeling good!

Support your local independent designer-makers!

By coming to this!

Christmas gifts ahoy at the Whitworth Gallery this Saturday and Sunday. I'll be there on Sunday selling my wares, so obviously that's the best day for you to come on down - or just come both days and get yourself some exquisite and unique presents for your loved ones.

The warming glow of 50s advertising!

It's real real cold, apparently there's quite a lot of snow around, but I don't see any!
We have one of these in our house, but it's red, it's pretty good news :)

I love the colours in these old adverts, and the simplicity of the shapes, it's my design philosophy!

It's so cold in Manchester today, been snowing and everything. I'm hunched in my studio trying to draw and be more proactive but I'm wearing about 8 layers! Not good.
Any way, the uber hot Omar at Bones Magazine has bigged me up on his blog. Thanks sweetheart!
