Yes I know, I'm a little slow on the uptake, but this is my first blog post of 2010 so "Happy New Year!". Well, it's been a busy few weeks this end, designing and making lots of new things to put on my Folksy shop. I also had my first 'big order' of birdie mirrors which was trés exciting. Look at all these little beauties!
There were 55 in total, all different in either birdie or background and each were put in a little white organza bag to be given as gifts. I loved being able to make so many of these and see them all looking so pretty and colourful when they were ready to post off - very satisfying!
As well as these I've been turning my drawing hand to some little niceties suitable for Valentine's Day. There's my favourite range, the J'Adore Love Birds, which adorn a number of things, including cards, mirrors and badges:
I've also got two new feline characters, Romeow and Purrliet:
There's also some cute "To me you are the moon and stars" badges, which make a little love heart out of the negative space when you join them together, perfect for keeping one and giving one to your sweetheart:
(They do actually join up together well, which the photos have conveniently not shown!)
I've also got some cards suitable for V-Day ("V-Day is D-Day" is one of my favourite recent quotes from a friend, "If he doesn't show me how he feels by then, I'm off!") but regardless of Valentine's day, it's always nice to be told that you're loved at any time of year. And that's what this card is all about:
Anyway, blah blah blah, I will simply end on "If you fancy a look, please check MY SHOP!"
