Been a bit slow on the blog after half of it went on to the virtual 'missing file. No idea what happened and haven't worked our how to back it up. I'm sure there is a way and having discovered it again, having had google try and divert me off somewhere who knows where, I had better go get the kids. So there it is. News for all. There will be a picture post at some stage very soon though..................

Apologies to anyone following my blog, it seems to have been hacked, some posts deleted and people redirected. Can't quite see the point , but there you are. Hopefully this won't happen anymore, but if it does please let me know!

I have to do a little self portrait for my etsy shop, (wossat? - more of that later) so here are the first wee sketches. The good looking ones with lots of hair are particularly accurate.

If you're around for the summer fair, come along, it'll be a blast!


I saw a girl today as I was cycling along so I have done a drawing of her. She has a very faded top.

As a follow-up, to the dinner pic, I thought I'd just spell it all out! I'm sure it matches what you thought. As a bed-time story I had to tell the story of Horace who was eaten by the tiny lion. Can't quite remember that one!

dinner drawing

Here's a drawing done to amuse the kids over dinner. They suggested things and we took it from there. There's a good story to it as well, revolving round the very fierce tiny lion which is in the cage who ate a small baby called Horace and the elephant, who, crucially had to have dark glasses otherwise he would have seen the mouse and ... well i'm sure you can work out the rest....!

Tightrope walking

Here's a lovely drawing by my son, called tightrope walking. Which is what he wants to do after motorbike jumping probably...

I'm quite relieved that there has been a great response from people who have seen the alphabets. I took them to a Mum's group and there was a lot of interest, and importantly, the children seem to love them. Apparently I now have got enough fairies in them and they enjoy trying to spot things starting with that letter. Some are obvious and some pretty obscure, which makes for good fun. They've just gone into their first shop and into their first gallery, so here's looking at you bluetwoeyes!

I have been pretty blog free recently, apologies for that. On reading the Sleeping Beauty story I realized there was good reason not to write a story from random words! Since then I have been re-writing the story to actually make at least some sort of sense! But more of that later...
I have been concentrating on alphabets - I am creating two entire alphabets, illustrated with hundreds of characters for boys and girls. It's a long and complex process and they're not quite ready yet, but here is a quick snifter just to get taste buds going!
