Hello 2014 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a lovely festive break and that 2014 proves to be a very happy, healthy, peaceful and lucky year for everyone...

It's been a very relaxing Christmas and New Year spent catching up with family and friends.

Just before Christmas I received two delightful things that put a big smile on my face. The first is the image above which was sent to me by a lovely customer of mine.  She'd bought quite a few items from my shop and had 'plans' for them...and here is the finished feature wall which was what she had in mind! I love it!! especially the wall decal 'Drink Tea and Eat Cake' - both of those are certainly on my list of New Year's resolutions!...

The other thing that arrived was a gorgeous package from Gracie's Garden Bazaar - one of my very favourite designer makers.  I adore Cassandra's work and was thrilled to bits to win her recent giveaway.  Those beautiful Russian dolls look down on me while I work as it now lives by my desk and helps keep me inspired...

Only one more day of the holidays left, my children are back at school on Tues so that is my officical 'back at work' day.  I know I have a number of messages I need to reply to (please bear with!).  I'll get stuck into replying to those on Tuesday without interruptions.  Meanwhile, I have managed to re-organise my online shops with a few sale items to tempt you and my shops are now open once again:

With Spring Fair International only a few short weeks away, in between eating and drinking too much and generally enjoying precious family time, I've been busy working on some new illustrations for greetings cards for 2014.  A range of 12 garden themed greetings cards are now ready to send off to be printed and plans for 17 more occasion cards by the end of Jan are top of my to do list.  So, it's straight back into my colouring in at full speed  next week - but then I wouldn't want it any other way!...

Here's a sneaky glimpse of a few more from the new 'Bloomin' Lovely' garden collection coming very soon - these will be released as greetings cards and illustration prints this Spring.

Have a lovely week everyone
Best wishes
