At last - a bit of design time!


The sun was shining and it was warm in a sheltered spot at the bottom of the garden this afternoon. Half of me felt guilty just 'sitting' there but once the sun went behind the roof line and the chill set in, I came and spent a quiet hour in my studio, warming up.....


...... and designing.
It feels like it's been a long time - but I'm determined to make time for doing what I enjoy best.



You can easily get bogged down with the orders and paperwork and updating the computer etc, etc and lose sight of what was important in the beginning and for me messing about with paper is the best bit.

They are only my thank you for shopping postcards, that get sent out with every order. I am running extremely low - well I only have 10 left so it was a case of having to get them done for the printers but never the less, it's given me the taste of it again and I can't wait to get on with a new Christmas product in the next few days!

What a lovely idea - to thank people with a little something to keep with all your details on it and so attractive too!

Designing is so the best bit for me too but you're right, with everything else to do in a day, it seems to get pushed to the back of the list sometimes... glad you found a little time to enjoy it! Your thank you cards are beautiful :)
