The Lakes and Scotland

It’s been an age since I posted on this blog. I’ve been building a new one – to be revealed soon – so that’s been keeping me more than busy. I’ve also been super busy with general work stuff so my poor blog has had to take a back seat. I’ve just got back from a … Continue reading

Transport Graphics

Last week I took my bus/train/car obsessed 2 year old to the Transport Museum in London. I expected buses and trains but I didn’t expect the cool vintage transport posters and signage. Here are some of my favourites below. Apologies for the poor quality phone images. Ha!   I loved seeing the old tube maps   And next … Continue reading

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

While our kitchen is being extended we’ve had to move out of our house for a few weeks. Perfect excuse to jump in a hire car and head to Sheffield to visit some friends. We rented a house through airbnb (thoroughly recommended!) and spent 2 weeks exploring the Peak District. Such a beautiful part of the … Continue reading

Sparklehen Illustrations

I’ve only had my shop on Folksy for just over a month and so far it’s going pretty well. I have’t had much time to browse other stores but I did stumble upon Heather Scott’s shop, Sparklehen. I love her illustrations. She sells her prints for a very reasonable £7.50. There isn’t’ much information about … Continue reading

Leaf Art

I love this. These leaf animals are by Mortéza Esmaîli Sohi. With so many on the ground at the moment there’s no excuse not to make your own. I’m thinking Panda.

Barcelona

I’m back! Well we got back last Friday but I’ve been busy filling orders for my Etsy shop and for SNAP store.  We had the best time in Barcelona. We divided out time between the local swimming pool and trips into the city. Here’s just some of our photos. It was HOT but this just … Continue reading

Barcelona Baby!

On Sunday we’re off to Barcelona for 2 weeks. I’ve been twice before but this trip (with two children!) will be very different to the last two. We are swapping our home through the new and salubrious website Behomm.   Below are some  photos I found online of this beautiful city. Barcelona 1962 –  Photo Xavier … Continue reading

Flying Henry

I love this. When American photographer Rachel Hulin was on maternity leave she was looking for a project she could complete whilst looking after her baby son. He became the subject and the result is the Children’s book Flying Henry.  ‘A fantasy children’s book intended for infants and toddlers, Flying Henry follows the story of a baby … Continue reading

Dad’s Day

Don’t forget your Dad on June 16. (September 1 in Australia and NZ)  I have created a bunch of new cards especially for Father’s Day. All can be found in my shop. A quintessential Dad Chair. If you can’t afford to buy your Dad the Eames chair and footstool then this card is the next … Continue reading

Long weekend in Wiltshire

Last weekend we swapped our home in East London, through Intervac, with a lovely family from Wilton, Wiltshire. I’d never heard of Wilton before but it’s a lovely town right by Salisbury and close enough to the coast for a day trip. We were only there for 3 nights but we packed so much in, it … Continue reading
