Bloomin' Lovely!...

Hello, its been a little while since my last blog post, sorry about that. I'm blaming the school holidays!...I've been trying to find lots of ways to keep my daughters occupied and happy without spending a fortune everyday.

Luckily the weather has been fairly kind, added to which our garden is looking bloomin' lovely at the moment...all full of colour - just as I like it!. I've been getting the girls doing lots of painting and craft stuff in the garden. I even managed to get them so engrossed in their paintings that they didn't notice that I was busily creating a few watercolours of my own. It was sheer bliss... nothing beats a bit of sketching in garden in the sunshine whilst the kids are busy and quiet!

Here are the fruits of that labour....

I've also been very busy finishing off a range of 18 greetings card designs for a publishing company. They are planning to launch the range on their stand at the NEC's Autumn Fair at the beginning of Sept. I've spent the past couple of months slotting in a couple of designs a week around my usual workload and I'm feeling slightly giddy this week as I finished the last design of the range at the weekend - woo hoo!

I've adapted one of the designs from this range into a new framed print, which is now available on my Folksy shop :

I hope you're all enjoying the summer too. I'm really enjoying seeing lots of pictures on blogs of allotments and gardens looking abundant and glorious!
