I've had a busy week, as well as some chunky batches of digital illustration briefs arriving in my email inbox with very short deadlines (you know who you are, if you ever drop in and read this), I had to get wares ready for the Boden Clothes and Artisan Fair at Swaffham Prior.
But the weather was glorious, there were some nice programmes on Radio 4 and I even opened the door of my studio and let in the fresh air and sunshine – the under-gardeners dropped by for a midday snack of porridge oats . . .
They deserve a treat as they helped me design a new range of printed gifts :-)
Here's some block printed wrapping paper hanging up to dry . . .
The sunshine put me in the mood for flowers and bright bright colours!
After a few late nights spent sticking and cutting, all was packed and ready for today – I felt very pleased with my new look display labels. Here's my stall all ready for customers.
Phew! That was a lot of work, but worth it because everyone had lots of fun. Oh yes! I admit it, I was tempted to spend some of my earnings – I bought a gorgeous aubergine coloured 'Lucy Bag' from Lily Button and ordered a sassy (I think that's the correct Boden term) frock to wear when the sun shines this summer.
Hope you're enjoying your weekends too. I've got to work tomorrow – deadlines to meet!
