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.

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....

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!)
