Independent Christmas Gift Guide

I forgot to mention yesterday that my mens Howling on the Wind tee was featured in The Independent's Christmas gift guide a couple of weeks back thanks to the lovely folks at The Shop Floor Project!!

Click the pic to read if you like. I am quite proud of the bit where I am described as "The very latest in hip independent designers"...natch!

Jubilee Wharf Crimbo fair!

I am taking part in this year's Jubillee Wharf Christmas Fair down in Penryn in Cornwall this weekend. It is on Saturday evening from 6 until late and Sunday from 11 until 4. If you happen to be in the area please do pop over. It should be a fun evening on Saturday with music and a bar and stuff and other fun bits and pieces on Sunday...Yay!


Just a couple of little bits of things I have been working on this last month...

Canvasses for Fred Flare:
New tee for Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip's library tour!!
I have also been putting together my new website!! A portfolio for all of my artwork which I am hoping will be up and running by the new year. I wanted it up sooner but December has been rather manic (in a good way!) and I have yet to get it finished...but with my beau's help it is on it's waaaay!!
And this is a beautiful necklace I received from lovely Jen at Cat and Bang!! It's so sparkly with Swarovski crystals (I love Swarovski beads!!) and with a sweet deer and little snowflake is the perfect wintertime accessory...Thanks Jen :)Last weeks dressage to music was fun, except Lauder took an exception to the audience and kept a good ear cocked towards them just in case they did anything untoward like rustling or moving at all or other really scary things like that. Applause proved to be too much and he did a wonderful spin when they clapped at the end which ended our performance with a flourish to say the least!! Poor chap, I think he must be shy or something, bless!

So I hope all of your Christmas shopping is coming along well. Don't forget the last date you can place UK orders n the Emporium so they will get to you in time for Christmas is this Friday the 19th December and make sure you get your orders in by midday so I can pack 'em up and get them posted to ya!!

Long time...

Gah! Long time no blog from me!! Things have been pretty crazy around here in the run up to Christmas, I've been busy designing a new tee for Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip's latest tour, making lots of new mini canvasses for Fred Flare and making sure the shop is tip top with Christmas goodies!!

I just wanted to stop by with a quick blog today to mention 1: that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth! and 2: that there are loads of new items in the store with a last minute upload before Christmas over the coming few days...
Righto, I'll be back with more news and stuff soon, for now though I am rushing off to prepare for this evenings CDG Christmas Dressage to Music display!! I am taking part on Lauder and there is a saddlecloth to be tinseled, a top hat to be sequinned and a muddy horse to be polished and glittered...!

Oh one last thing: I have only recently been alerted to the gorgeous album "Home" by Peter Broderick. I reccommend a listen, it's very beautiful indeed...Myspace here.
