'Tis the Season!...

...to be super busy in amongst all of the festive crazyness! 
haha :)

I'm not complaining though...being busy is a good thing!

The Farm Shop where I work part time becomes a little winter wonderland over the Christmas season; Santa in his Grotto, Christmas trees and all the decorations and LIVE REINDEER! So as you can imagine, it is super busy with families coming to visit and do a spot of Christmas shopping.

When I have not been working there,  I have been exhibiting at 6 different Christmas Fairs across East Yorkshire, which were all a great success.
It was the first opportunity for me to really let people see my design work and get first hand reactions to what I am doing. This was quite daunting but feedback has been nothing but positive, which is amazing! 

As ever, requests for wallpaper and fabrics with my designs on are growing so in the new year my main priority is to find a manufacturer so I can get the ball rolling with having some designs printed.
Seeing my designs as wallpaper and fabrics would be a dream come true!

So, I had better go make the most of this day off and get to it but don't forget I have lots of fantastic stocking fillers available via my facebook page...

Notebooks, Pocket Mirrors, Tote Bags, Notelets and Christmas Cards
