Royal Mail christmas strike dates
All your orders are so appreciated whenever you place them, but if you were planning on buying something from me this Christmas, I would really advise shopping early if you can. As you can see below, the post is likely to be very disrupted this year, so please do bear that in mind if things are taking longer to arrive. If you need something urgently, I will always do my best to accommodate, so please do get in touch.

It's approaching the busy market time of year - I love it as there's nothing better than seeing what real customers think to my work and hearing what suggestions/favourites you might have.

Bamboo Beeswax Food Wraps Gift Set
I’m so excited to tell you about a new product that I’ve been developing over the last little while as I think it’s the only one that exists on the whole interweb! So we all know that single use plastic is a terrible idea and we need to be cutting it out. Beeswax food wraps are a great alternative to cling film and plastic food bags, but I wanted to go one step further - my brand new Make Your Own kits I’ve created are using BAMBOO fabric in a choice of 7 different designs. Unlike the bamboo pens that I make, I didn’t grow this in the garden, but used a super eco friendly U.K. printers to supply the fabric for me, and I’ve extensively tested the recipe to ensure maximum cling and washability, which was an excellent excuse to buy naughty treats as photo props 🙊 Each kit includes enough fabric for up to 4 wraps, all materials, instructions and templates and is available in a bunch of new patterns using my Inky Animals and Botanical hand drawn illustrations. Check out the New In section for more details (pretty please, otherwise everyone will be getting bamboo napkins for Christmas!)
A colourful Black Friday
I'm keeping my Christmas Show schedule a bit more manageable this year, rather than the usual traipsing all over the country! First up is the Westonbirt Charity Fair on 23rd and 24th October. Proceeds go towards seven very deserving charities, including Marie Curie, a local Hospice and Gloucester's Intensive Care Unit. You can find out more details including booking tickets here.
The Actual Guardian
Another year, another honour. Thank you! Buy your own here.
So so chuffed to turn up in the Guardian Christmas Gift Guide for the 4th year in a row :)
