Planting Dreams and Growing My Portfolio...


Hello,
The first working week of 2014 has been a reasonably good start.  As readers of my last post will know, I'm currently working at the speed of light on new designs to be showcased at Spring Fair International in three weeks time.  There's still plenty to do and next week is going to be full on.  If I manage to keep pretty much on track with my work plan, then hopefully next weekend will feel a whole lot more relaxed than this one does, so there is a light at the end I can see...


Spring Fair is only the start of things.  Over the past couple of months I've been making lots of plans and planting dreams for the future.  I am bursting with ideas to bring to life this year and can't wait to get stuck in, This year I'm hoping my portfolio will grow in ways I've been dreaming of for a very long time.  
As well as all these ideas, there are a couple of exciting collaboration projects lined up for me from February on-wards which I'm really looking forward to getting involved in.  Looking at the year ahead I feel very hopeful and inspired and will be nurturing all those dreams I've planted with great care and attention...


In the midst of all the work on new card designs, I had to have a blitz on my workspace this weekend as things where getting out of hand and it just didn't feel like the right sort of space to start a fresh year from.  The chaos was preventing me from focusing on the jobs I need to get on with.   I'm convinced it was a couple of hours well spent as I'm sure that I'll gain that time back this week by not having to hunt for things I need.  After all, it's not a good situation when you spend 15 minutes a day hunting for a drawing pen that works when your job is essentially drawing!...


...At last, things are in the places they should be and there are lots of pretties on display to keep my spirits lifted, it feels good!....


However, now my workspace is habitable again I don't want to look too closely at the rest of the house as that'll have to wait until I've met my pressing deadlines.  A lick and promise is the best I can offer the other rooms, one thing at a time.

Over the next couple of weeks I'll be adding illustration prints of my new garden themed collection to my online shops, the images above are a taste of what's to come.  
I'm hoping this year will turn out to be a 'Bloomin' Lovely' one!
Have a great week
Best wishes
