Totally Tropical

I've been working hard on another name plaque recently (still a few more to go but as they are so detailed they do take a fair amount of time and effort!). As with the others, I was led by the name and preferred theme and colour. For this one, Cassia was never going to be about pink butterflies, fairies and flowers, much to her Nana's dismay...and as her room is decorated in yellow and green with giraffes and elephants, I decided to make this a tropical jungle theme - with a few tropical flowers thrown in...
I've really enjoyed working on this one, and yet again feel like a part of me is going to go with it when it reaches its new home...

Spreading the love! Happy days x

social media icons...why not?

Having just completed another design, I congratulated myself with a cup of tea. No sooner had I taken a sip when an idea sprang to the surface...what fun could I have with my own social media icons? Why not paint one, make it my own! So using some of my favourite characters I whipped up these two as a bit of a treat for myself :0)

Onwards and upwards then...

...and recently

Every day is different, every week is different, so routines just go out of the window. Who wants a routine anyway!? Recently, I've had ups and downs with getting commission work done, and have spent longer thinking about what to do than doing anything - partly due to not being at my desk when thinking, and partly because I haven't yet committed to getting some work done. However, I have done some orders and here are two, very different plaques for two special little girls, both brand new to the world, born only days apart. Welcome to the world little girls x
