Maeve is here & New Work created for 'Health for All'



It's been just over 2 months since my last blog post. I am now getting back into the swing of things after having our baby girl on July 23rd at 2.30am.

Maeve Ayla Platts is here and we couldn't be happier :)

My first job after Maeve arrived was a commission for an organisation called 'Health for All' based in Leicester.

Bina from 'Health for All' and 'Earthbuds' was very nice to work with. You can find out more about the work that they do here.

It was nice to get back into the swing of things after having our baby girl :)



Speak soon!

Custom Business Stamp - New Stamp from Poumi Stamp Studio





I recently ordered a custom stamp from Poumi Stamp Studio who are based in Scotland, UK.

Find them on Folksy here

I have been using the stamp to make new business cards and to add information to my packaging. I absolutly love it! Amy from Poumi Stamp studio was also really helpful when I had far too many questions about the design ;) I totally recommend ordering from them if you are thinking of getting a custom stamp made.

PS: Remember you can follow me on Instagram too! The link is at the top right of my blog :)

Festival Poster Commission



 Recently I had the pleasure of creating a Festival Poster for a local festival. The event was a small invite only affair for friends of friends. This means I can't show you the full design with all of it's details, however I want to show you what I can as I am really pleased with it! The theme was 'Under the Sea'!

As we have a baby due in 3 weeks festivals are off for us this summer (we had to sell our Secret Garden Party tickets, boo)!

I hope everyone else is enjoying the festival season :)

Shop Announcement

Just a little shop announcement!

I won't be taking on any more commissions now (for wedding stationary/logos/pet portraits etc..) as our due date is rapidly approaching! I hope to be able to be back accepting commissions from September but I will let you all know.

My online shops will stay open for as long as possible and will only shut for a week or two when the baby arrives. Thank you to everyone who has commissioned work from me over the past couple of years, I've loved each and every job if anyone wants to contact me about future commissions please do but bear in mind I may not reply for a while if/when things get busy!

THANK YOU xx

 New triangle shaped necklaces soon to be for sale! I am just in the process of organising the packaging. I love them! Wooden triangles, my illustrations on top and sealed with varnish with a waxed cotton cord string.

A beautiful feather found whilst out walking with Faran, a Jay feather perhaps?

 My sweetest, loveliest pony pops.He hasn't been ridden in quite some time now due to me being pregnant..I can't wait to get back out with him. At the mo he is enjoying his daily fuss & feed and his long holiday!
