Getting my rock on, new guitar prints

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?

new hand printed greetings cards

New hand printed greetings cards

I’ve finally got new, exciting things added to my online shops – hooray!

new hand printed greetings cards

There are three new cards to add to my hand printed range.

  • You’re Hitched! Inspired by the fact that I can never find a wedding card I like I’ve made a brightly brilliant ‘You’re Hitched!’ card, to give you something fun, positive and bold to take to all those summer weddings this year.
  • Marvellous Mum. My mum is marvellous, so I created a pretty card in purple, with the simple and to the point statement ‘Marvellous Mum’ on the front. Perfect for Mother’s Day (10 March in the UK, 12 May in the US and Australia).
  • Fabulous Father. As with the above card I was inspired by my own wonderful parents when creating this card (no, not a brilliant priest as some might believe). Perfect for Father’s Day (16 June in the UK and USA, and 1 September in Australia)

I hope you like them!

Free gift February

It’s February already – where did January go? I feel like I’ve got lots done in the last month – that’s a relief – new prints, new cards (you can check some of these out online already), new ideas, and new plans. Plus I’ve started jogging and not given up yet, been out in wind, rain and snow!

To celebrate the fact that it’s already February and that spring is not far away I’ve giving away a little free gift with every order placed online in February. This can be from any one of my online stores: Etsy, Not on the High Street or my Knockout store. Go have a browse!

The gifts range from hand printed greetings cards and gift tags, notebooks and bookmarks and most of them are unique one-off creations I’ve produced over the years.

Cushion covers

New stuff! Tissue pockets and cushion covers printed with our fabric

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.

Getting to know you…

It’s nice when you get to learn a bit about the people who buy your artwork, whether that’s face to face at a craft fair or online.

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!
