Since being back in lockdown again I’ve brought my mobile making equipment into the house from my studio to work on the floor, mostly in 30 second bursts inbetween my daughter asking questions about her home school work! I’ve had a couple of retail enquiries, as well as sales of mobiles from my Etsy shop. One of these is flying off to California… I know I try to encourage shopping local, but I’m not turning away any business that comes my way at the moment, after an extremely quiet sales time over Christmas 2020!
Hello! My first blog post in an age. How life has changed over the past 3 months. I drafted this at the start of lockdown when I had a moment to myself, but technical troubles stopped me making it live.
Anyway, I wanted to share a little animation that I made at the very end of the first week of homeschooling due to lockdown, I think I had decided that the trampoline could babysit for an hour!!! (I’m sure I won’t be the only one who has resorted to that occasionally…)
Hopefully you’ll be able to watch this which I made using a free app called stop motion studio and even more hopefully it will bring a little smile to your face.
I’ve been busy busy busy over the past couple of months spending every spare second I have drawing my first colouring in book!
I’m REALLY excited about having it finished in time for Christmas… a perfect present for anyone who has joined in the colouring in craze. Here’s a peek at part of the cover…
My new, exciting colouring in book!
I really have to thank all my followers on Facebook who have prodded me into doing this. It all stemmed from my ‘doodle-a-day’ project which was inspired by the lovely Emily Kidson who I met earlier this year. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for over 20 years but never had the confidence to. I’ve been overwhelmed by the amazing positive response I’ve had to it so far – and I haven’t even picked it up from the printers yet!
Please email me on email@example.com for pre-orders. They will also be listed on my Etsy shop (re-opening asap especially!). I am picking the first batch up from the printers this week but it’s already becoming clear that I need to order more!
Here is a link to my latest newsletter where you can find details of all the shows I am taking part in on the run up to Christmas as well as details of my new wrapping paper.
