At last my new guitar prints are photographed and up on Etsy and Not on the High Street. The new designs build on the most popular prints, keeping the bold, graphical layouts but introducing some new colours, including soft grey, a gorgeous mushroom colour, deep, muddy purple, and orangy red. Yum. They all feature guitar headstocks and are perfect for people like me: those of us who love our music and wish we could play the guitar! God we’d be so cool wouldn’t we?
What happens in your house on Christmas day? Does dad fall asleep in front of the telly? Are pigs in blankets on the dinner table? And does someone always get socks for Christmas?

Since I designed and printed some wrapping paper earlier this year, I have been wondering what else I can do with the patterns I developed for them. First stop, fabric-ville: I got a few of the designs printed onto a cotton linen mix. The fabric, in fat quarters, arrived a few weeks ago and I have just got round to making something out of it, cue some gorgeous cushion covers and tissue holders.
With a little help from some sewing machine experts (mum) this is what we made. The tissue holders are now available on Etsy, with the cushion covers and, who knows, lots of other exciting goodies, will be available in the new year.

Recently I sold one of my Jack White guitar prints to a guy in New York called Frank. We chatted via email and I found out what a huge Jack White fan and guitar expert he is. He sent me a few images of articles from Rolling Stone and Mojo magazine, featuring him presenting the very guitar in my print to Jack White. Pretty cool huh? Frank has a great guitar story to tell, and now I suppose I do to!
Some new designs which I’m rather excited about. I have been developing my guitar range further and created these two new prints, developing the overlapping shapes and bright colour themes. I think they look pretty lush, I hope you agree!
