n e w . d e s i g n s










here are some new block-printed cards i've been working on.
i had a sudden urge to make some brand new designs for my lovely stockist 'made in stroud'.
these have also been added to my on-line shop on etsy which i've just re-opened.
i hope you like them. it feels good to finally have some new and fresh designs!

 my poor neglected blog! 
well i have a good excuse for that; the birth of my baby boy!
little ethan arrived back in january, on the exact same day as my birthday! the best birthday present ever! it's such a wonderful time having a new member in the family and big sister isla absolutely adores her little brother. it's very heart warming seeing them together, he smiles and gurgles at her too.
already he is just over 3 months old, the time has really flown by and i can't quite believe it is may!
now he's a bit bigger we are getting into more of a routine with him and with isla. at times it has been tough, obviously its tough having a new born, sleepless nights and what not but he's also been suffering with reflux problems which we never encountered before, with isla she fed and slept really well and by 8 weeks old she was only having one feed during the night. ethan on the other hand, although he is a happy little fellow, he's hungry a lot of the time especially as he brings most of it back up after some (not all) feeds. hoping it's just a phase we are at with him. he's out grown his crib so he's definitely getting bigger ;) with all the juggling of family life i've also been able to do a spot of printing, 'me time' a few weeks ago was sleep but my energy levels some days are better, so i have found printing more appealing than sleep-don't ask? i'm superwoman right?? ha! 
it's felt really good to get creative again with my blockprinting, a bit here and there when my little ones let me ;)
happy days x
