Well, it's been a long time since I last posted.  I've been busy working away on some lovely, new things which I'll share in a moment.  First though, in my last post I talked about Paperchase and how things could only get bigger and better.  Well they did!  Paperchase bought my monochrome cats and dogs designs from Paper and Cloth which looked like this.....very grey.....


.....added a splash of colour.....


.....and turned them into these.....


.....a journal, giftwrap, and notecards (which I haven't got a photo of).

My little girl was very excited spotting these in Paperchase. It's always lovely seeing your designs out and about in the world, and really interesting and fun seeing what companies do with them. 

I've also been working on designing and printing my own greetings cards.  It may not sound that exciting to most people, but to me.....it seriously is.  I have absolutely loved the whole process so far.  From designing the cards and getting them printed, to researching how and where I'm going to sell them, plus all the not so exciting stuff like packaging for orders, couriers, line sheets, and learning all about wholesale.  I've loved the lot! There's a lot more to it than I first thought to be honest, but after all the hours of research and preparation, the shops and galleries I've approached have really liked my cards and placed orders......so.....fingers crossed it will be successful!  

I've also updated my website to show my new greetings cards.  Here's a few which have been beautifully photographed by the lovely Susan Guest Photography










Lots of work still to do.  I have 1000 greetings cards in the dining room which need to be individually bagged in cellophane wraps.  That'll keep me busy for a few hours (or days!).
