The last few days have been very productive. I've been designing lots of new patterns and really enjoying it. I love days like this when everything comes very naturally, it suits my style as it is quite an organic way of drawing.
I also got the ball rolling and opened my Etsy shop which you can visit here. I'm finding Etsy quite dangerous, there is such a wide variety of beautiful artwork and lovely things and I get a bad case of 'the want' whenever I go on! I think that it's fantastic to be able to buy directly from different artists worldwide and it has a great community. I really do believe that it's important to support artists and it's so much nicer and more personal this way.
I will be doing a Christmas post soon on some of my favourite pieces that are available from various creatives, but for now here are a few of my favourite shops:-
Jane Ormes- beautiful, colourful gocco prints (I particularly love the rabbit!)
Eleanor Reilly- colourful and happy cards and goodies (Eleanor is actually my sister so this isn't the last you'll be hearing of her from me!)
bookhouathome- a lovely mix of beautiful printed textiles and unique pieces
Happy shopping ;)
