This is what the inside of my head looks like - pretty eh?

I've been so busy doing computer based work just lately I haven't had chance to 'make' anything and I have been getting serious withdrawal symptoms. So spent a glorious afternoon (really, complete with sunshine) making this book. It's my first 100% original design - the fabric design on the cover you may recognise from earlier posts - and I am really pleased with it. I am keeping this one for myself but I am working on more which will appear in my shop over the next few weeks.

The weather is definately changing even though we have had rain most of the summer, now we have the autumn chill in the air. But the bees are still at work and the sunflowers still going strong. Will resisit turning on the heating for a little while yet.

I've lost count of the amount of times I have change my online identity over the last few years. I've always had an idea in the back of my mind how I want to be seen as an artist but never quite figured out how to do it. I have too many conflicting ideas and my style changes with the wind. But in the last 12 months I have recognised this change as a progression rather than indecision and for once I feel like all my work, as different as it may be, as more unified than ever - like all the pieces have finally slotted in to place.

So of course this required one last change for my websites. I say last, knowing full well it won't be but I will change them in the future because I am ready to move forward, not because I can't decide which style path to go down.

It's taken me a while (15 years in fact) but I have got there :D and now all the fun stuff can begin....

Summer Holidays...

The last 6 weeks have gone by in a flash. We've had sun, we've had rain, we've met up with old friends, made new ones and most of all had fun. Tommorow marks the start of a new chapter for all of us, Kamal starts at the village school so no more fighting with the traffic every day, Anya starts preschool 5 mornings a week so more fun for her and more time for me to get the business running properly and a few new projects underway (exciting ones at that, watch this space!)
