A Washing Line of Love!

I'm proud to showcase a new dots and spots product that I developed over the summer and its already proving to be a popular seller with mums & dads, grandparents, godparents and anyone looking for a personalised gift that will look great on any child's bedroom wall or door.

The name is made from a variety of different papers (see the colour swatch below) which are torn or cut to make the letters that are then 'strung' from the washing lines. The pictures are further embellished with hearts, stars or flowers as appropriate, creating a truly unique and individual piece of art that will be a cherished keepsake forever.

'Washing Lines of Love' can be purchased from the dots and spots website, the dots and spots Not on the High Street store or Maddie Browns (one of "Our Favourite Shops", in Wells, Somerset).

The Twitter Bird!

Twitter - we love it at dots and spots! Click on the link on the right if you want to follow me and read my daily tweets.

The success of Twitter has, perhaps, made the cute 'Twitter Bird' the icon image of the year. Anyway, here are few Twitter birds that can be found in dots and spots HQ.

And just in case you were worried that the Twitter bird lived a single and solitary existence, here's proof to the contrary.

Caught in the Act!

Picture the scene - a damp Saturday afternoon (and we've had enough of those this Summer!) and I'm busy creating in the dots and spots studio, the children quietly watching the TV ...

Went to check the children were OK, only to discover ...

What do you buy for a man who has everything?

Our menfolk - be it our hubbies, our Dad's, brothers, uncles or whoever - we love them dearly, but at least twice a year they present us with a BIG problem:

Just what gift do you buy for the man who has everything?

When faced with that problem, one enlightened individual took the sensible step of approaching dots and spots to see how I could help. The client wanted a gift that was fun and original and celebrated the recipients love of cricket. They provided the picture of the cricketer, and a little detail about the recipient, and dots and spots provided the magic to turn a simple picture into a superb gift.

Personalised and original, the perfect gift for that 'difficult to buy for' man in your life!

A dots and spots commission could be your answer when looking for that

gift for the man who has everything.

Contact me now to see how I can help!

The Hayward Gallery invited 10 artists to create 'brainscapes' - where you would walk 'in the mind' of the artist. dots and spots was, of course, drawn to the installation art of Yayoi Kusama, with her vivid white polka dots on bright red.

Even the trees outside the gallery were clothed in red and white spots, and don't they look great!

'Inside' the artist's mind.
