Alice - A Very Fine Female
Here is my completed Alice - A Very Fine Female print. I'm so pleased with how sweet it looks especially framed up alongside the Elizabeth Bennett print. I'm so enjoying doing these and I've now nearly finished the third in the set, no other than Peter Pan's Wendy. The Wendy silhouette is coming on beautifully. It's so good to be making again!
Now it's time to take my Lola for a walk. She's driving me insane and I cannot take her destructive demands for attention any longer! Having a dog is blissful but having a bonkers one that needs long walks every day to prevent her turning from an adorable cutie into a maniac can be waring. But totally, totally worth it, she's such a sweetheart.

A is for Apple, B is for Bird...

This little print was created by me for my new baby daughter. It looks so adorable in it's frame, I love it! It reads Edie's Alphabet at the top because that's her name but that can be changed or removed completely. It's so hard to find time for my work with a little one to look after but then again every spare second is so precious I waste no time at all! Not like before when I could spend days procrastinating. The print is up on my Etsy site as of
yesterday. I hope you like it.

A beautiful day spent at the National Botanic Garden of Wales. The flowers were enjoying their very last days of bloom which made them all the more lovely. Petals falling away, leaves turning brown, goodbye to summer and hello to the new season.
I've a sweet new print on Etsy which I'll post about tomorrow.
