Half Term Adventures and New Greetings Card Designs...


Hello,
It's been half term week here this week so I'm checking in with a brief round up on the adventures we've had this week.  My children are massive fans of the CBBC programme 'Horrible Histories' - my eldest daughter devours every Horrible Histories book she can find in our local library and is now well versed on the 'Rotten Romans' and 'Gorgeous Georgians'.  Being so close to the beautiful city of Bath, I've been meaning to take my girls on a day trip to the City for a while, to see the the Roman Baths and Museum of Fashion and of course travel there by train so they can experience a bit of 'Vile Victorian' engineering on the Great Western Railway.  It was all a bit last minute as we umm-ed and ahh-ed about going because the weather earlier this week was pretty horrible itself!... but things looked good on Wednesday so off we went... 


It was a lovely day out - my girls really enjoyed dressing up as Victorians in The Museum of Fashion and I got a lot of inspiration from some of the fabrics and details on the magnificent gowns on display.  I must say it was pushing it a bit to do both exhibits in one day with the young children - it helped that I am very familiar with Bath having lived there in my teens so knew how to get to each attraction quickly.   Both exhibits cater very well for children and there is plenty to keep them interested and excited....


 On our way up to the Fashion Museum I spotted Waterstones and swiftly popped in to see if my cards were in there.  To my delight I found them on a spinner on the 1st floor, they were the first thing you see as you come out of the coffee shop...


When we got back home, as is always the way when you go anywhere (never happens when you are in and waiting) I found a courier note saying a package had been left with the neighbours. It was the best sort of package too, filled to bursting with all my new Christmas card designs for this year.  Next week, top of my to do list is to get these photographed and listed on my website...


It may be half term for the kids, but it's still business as usual for me and that's meant a bit of new card design work.  Here are the two latest designs to add to my 'Love and Best Wishes' occasions range.  A new female and male birthday card.  I've lots more card design ideas lined up to do in the next couple of months ready to launch fully in the new year...


Have a great weekend!

Best wishes
