Look who it is!

So last October I got married to my lovely Husband in the beautiful and historic Victoria Hall in Saltaire. I lived in Saltaire for my first 4 years in West Yorkshire while I worked at Hallmark Cards, after leaving University and the North East behind. I have always loved the building and been to many a vintage fair and Zumba class there. The Venue was perfect for us, it was a very small and relaxed wedding and suited our vintage theme. We had the very talented Craig Goode to photograph our special day from Mr & Mrs {boutique wedding photography}. We have been lucky enough to have 2 of our photographs featured in the new wedding brochure for Victoria Hall which is a really nice keepsake to have and a lovely surprise.

Robin Williams what a legend, such sad news!

Well I couldn't end the week without a quick post to say how sad I was to hear of the news of one of my childhood faves! I grew up with his films and characters and have slowly been introducing Maggie to them. She loves Hook, Flubber, Mrs Doughtfire and Aladdin. This weekend we will snuggle up on the sofa for a Robin Williams marathon and remember what an amazing Actor he was!

So this is what I've been up to!

I've been working on some lovely cute character ranges this year, which even managed to get a little feature on Print and pattern which was nice. These cards were great to design as I could have little googley eyes on them. I have also been working on some fun sticker scene cards. Below is an owl woodland card with stickers, there is also a crazy alien sticker scene which was quite fun.

Ey Up!! Well, where do I start!!! After what seems like forever I'm returning to the blog! I will gradually fill you in on all the many things and adventures that have been going on while I've been in hibernation.
The big news is.... I got MARRIED! Last October was the big day and I can't believe it's nearly coming round to our  first Anniversary! My Little Maggie is now 6... going on sixteen and is now riding a bike free from stabilisers! Whoop!

 Still working here in West Yorkshire as a greetings card designer and having fun here in the studio, although we have lost and gained some new members along the way, nothing much has changed!
Still designing crazy characters and fun colourful stuff which I will post some samples of this week so you can see what I've been up to!

The Saltburn Yarn Mystery!

There has been something lovely going on near my home town of Saltburn by the sea! The wonderful and imaginative anonymous knitters of the north east have been busy creating a masterpiece to celebrate the Olympics! The amazing creation has been knitted to the railings of Saltburn Pier. The nice part is nobody seems to know who is responsible as it was done over night! what a challenge! It has brought a lot of smiles to the town! Well done to all involved!
