Christmas Card

I spent yesterday designing this years Christmas card. Yes I know it’s early, but if I don’t do it now I’d get to the beginning of December and would be struggling for inspiration even perhaps motivation in the business of the time of year!

I am really pleased with it and look forward to having it on sale 🙂

Greetings Cards

I’ve been enjoying this weeks card making before the last Fakenham Makers Market before the summer break. All made with original art, as you know, I do like hands on messy stuff! 

Card Stands in the Making

I started a new project recently as I’ve been having a constant battle in how to display some of my work at my makers markets. I have been making stands and generally trying to improve the presentation of my stall. Ultimately to try and improve sales!

I’ve had some apple trays for a while, knowing they would come in useful sometime and now they have! I saw something when I was out the other day and just motivated me to see what I could do.

I estimated what other bits of wood I might need which only cost about £10 and I got on with it.display-1 Measuring, sawing and painting:-)display-2 display-3Yes I’m impressed too!display-4I’ll take a photo of my stall on Saturday to show the stands all finished 🙂

Nativity

I have had the pleasure to be asked to do a drawing of the nativity to go on the front of the December issue of our church magazine. I am always nervous when I get specific commission especially because of the subject, I didn’t want it to turn out too sweet. I am actually pleased with the result and have used the image for a Christmas card.nativity-1 nativity-2 nativity-card-4nativity-card-1You can buy the cards from my Etsy Shop! 🙂
