Paid In Flowers and an 'as new' Mac!

So i was delightfully paid in flowers this weekend by Alex for some birthday cards. Thank you!

Here is my workplace at the moment! Trying to keep it clutter free, but its so difficult!

Also took my mac in to get a whole new inside panel as it was getting very cracked and got the Leopard upgrade, so it feels very spangly at the moment!

Waiting to hear back about possibly getting a stall at the Harbourside Market this weekend!

Badges and 1,000 Views!

 Just sat down with Davina and made some badges...

Heading to Vegfest tomorrow! Should have some great arty bits and obviously food!
I also hit a small milestone with my blog this week and hit 1,000 views! Hopefully in the near future this will seem very small! 

But Thank You to everyone who looks at my blog, it makes me very happy!

Private View at The Showroom and more Etsy

Last night i went to check out the artwork at The Showroom on Park Street. The artists were Anna J Chapman, Yuriko Usui, Carol Misch, Lara Ritosa Roberts and more. There were some beautiful photographs and the stuffed glove sculpture was fun! They are part of the No Underground Collective.

Ive also been working on some things to become more of a product, so packaging and labels etc. 

2 papercuts that can be used on gifts or as a bookmark.
They can be found in my Etsy shop HERE along with a few more things!

Ive also found out that Easton Arts Trail has some spaces left at St Annes Church so looks like ill be taking part in that on the 18th and 19th June!

Union Jack Beetle, Pick of the Week and Paperchase

Ashamed to say ive been getting into the patriotism a bit and that is reflected in my latest piece. I really enjoyed making 'Spotted Beetle' 2010 last year so here is 'Union Jack Beetle' 2011 - Haha i know, not very creative with the names!

This is now on my Etsy shop. 

PRSC have chosen 'Flies' 2010 for their Pick of the Week no.4 w/c 25/04/11. Which is really nice!

Im also having a love affair with Paperchase and bought this tray with amazing cupcake illustrations - 

I wish i had designed this!
