I've been a bit quiet on here lately, but there is a good reason for that.
Aside from my youngest daughter starting school this month (which has meant a lot of to and fro to her school to help settle her in) I'm also currently buried deep in loads of exciting new briefs. I'm working on some fantastic collaboration projects, new greetings cards and gift wrap designs, lots of new business branding work and of course helping my lovely regular customers to get their brands prepared for Christmas.
There it is!!!...I've said the 'C' word - like it or not CHRISTMAS is coming soon
(3 months today in fact!)
and so are some shiny new festive designs from me....
...here are some sneaky glimpses of some cards and gift wrap I've just finished working on and am waiting on the printed versions to get them photographed and listed on my website and on-line shops...
...they'll be 3 gift wrap designs and 6 card designs (which I'm hoping to sell as 12 packs - 2 of each design)...
...and just to be ultra organised knowing that I have quite a lot of work to get through in the coming months, I thought I'd pull out all the stops and get some extra card designs in on my Christmas card order at the printers so that 2013's occasion cards are also in the bag!...
...it has to be said that I'm in a state of shock myself to have managed to be that organised. I think is comes from the experience of not being able to get new designs done in time this past year for specific occasions - so I've learnt my lesson and felt a bit more forward planning was in order. It's actually lifted a weight off my mind and frees me up to concentrate on all the other projects I have on the boil!
Speaking of other things I've been up to, yesterday was a bit of an extraordinary day at Artwork by Angie HQ. I have some very exciting news that I'll be able to share with you properly next month. All I can say at the moment is it was a real pleasure to meet this very talented and genuinely lovely photographer yesterday : http://www.alsfordpictures.com/
OK, that's enough teasing with snippets of what I've been doing - I hope you have all been having a great month and are all set for the arrival of Autumn and Winter.
