anemone flower design now in a new colour way
now available from my etsy shop
it's been a while since i last printed these designs & i have to say it feels great to sit down & spend some time getting back into the printing swing of things. i've found a rhythm in my day which fits around isla. basically, when isla kips in the daytime i sneak off into my work room and either get chance to take some photographs of what i've been working on for my on-line shop & this here blog of mine or knuckle down & get on with some printing and making. depending purely how long nap time is of course.
i've made a couple of new lampshades (yet to photograph). and these spring notelet bundles.
it's the evenings where i get second wind & carry on.
for now this system works rather well for us. i enjoy working on the odd commission, my stockists orders and creating new things without it being pressuring. i'm very lucky and blessed to have a fab supportive husband and who is super hands on with isla and the cooking! with us both working from home means we are all together just how we like it.
with the start of a fresh new year, i felt it was time to clean & tidy a new workspace in the messy spare room! the room has been an absolute tip for goodness knows how long. it still isn't spotless but at least i have a tidy work area at one end for my things. it's not as bright as my old box art room (now isla's nursery) but it does feels super fab to have a room of my own again, to be able stretch out. it now means i can start on something and just leave everything out as is and go back to it later where as before i was sharing the dining table.
my next blog instalment will be proof of this tidy workspace!
