The Guardian Christmas Gift Guide 2015
The third year in a row that my drawing and colouring in has turned up in The Guardian Christmas Gift Guide, and it never gives me butterflies any less.
From my quieter Leafy range (which came before the Inky Animals but no one really bought it! Maybe they will this year.)

Proper lovely Press
Showing up in print never gets old! I'm especially thrilled with the write up in Period Homes and Interiors in their December edition. Exactly what I needed to cheer up this grey wintery day! Head to the shop if you'd like to browse what they're talking about for yourself!
Hey cat people, did you know there's a magazine called Your Cat? Did you also know that they've featured my Inky Kitten tea towel? Pretty nice. I do now own a free sample of kitten food that I don't know what to do with though.
You asked so I got on with it - luxurious pure cotton Adult Aprons now available in our shop!
All Inky Animals along with my Leafy range, proudly made in the UK as usual. You can also opt to have a name or other phrase printed on the straps for no extra! Just add a note whilst ordering exactly as you'd like your text to appear. The perfect bespoke personalised gift.
Any other products you'd like to see? Just let me know!
Bespoke Cushion Commission
I've just polished off a lovely bespoke cushion commission for Interior Designer Celia James. She picked her fabrics and sizes of choice and I made it happen.
Drop me a message if you have any bespoke hankerings.
Autumn Screen Printing Workshop
I enjoyed working with a lovely group of ladies on Saturday, teaching my simple screen printing method, and was very impressed with their beautiful results! Seems as though they enjoyed it too.
For more information on latest workshops, please get in touch.
So I've finally managed to catch my breath!
Top Drawer was fab: a flurry of on the spot sales, some lovely new stockists (including Dulwich Picture Gallery, To Be Established, BritishDesignBritishMade, and Bond Street Studios) and some very exciting press interest (ahem Ideal Home Magazine and the Guardian) and orders keep trickling in!
Thanks so much for all your lovely words of encouragement!
Now, anyone fancy helping me carve 102 bamboo pens..?
The other Spotted exhibitors were just lovely, I recommend checking them out!
The next Simple Screen Printing workshop will be on the 26th October, at The Banyan Tree in Brackley, Northants, and amazingly there are only a couple of places left! If you'd like to get involved, just drop me a message!
Things have been flat out juggling commuting to moo ever day and getting ready for Top Drawer... In amongst all this juggling, I've managed to put together some new products that I'm officially launching at the show, hope you like them! Available in the shop!
Simple Screen Printing Workshop
Another lovely afternoon of teaching screen printing the simple way yesterday... Here are the results the lovely ladies came up with!
The image in the bottom right corner was kindly sent through from one of the ladies. She was so inspired that she went out and bought the bits and pieces needed for printing, and added text, a sun and buttons to her design of the leaping deer. I think it looks cracking! And it's so lovely to see people enjoying and using what I have taught them! Ace all round.
I suspect another workshop will be in the diary soon... Get in touch if you want to know more!
