A Swap Of Cute

I participated in Katie's craft swap a few days ago, and got teamed up with the lovely Sophie as my swap partner...And I was Christmas-morning excited to receive these in the mail yesterday:

Isn't this adorable? Needless to say, being my quirky self, I immediately fell in love with that drawing/collage that reads: There she stands this lovely creature...Plus that brooch is making me so happy just by looking at it! Thank you so much for everything Sophie, I am wowed by it all!
So now that she has got her package as well, I can go ahead and show you what I made for her without spoiling any surprises, no? Here's the little package I put together for her:

Declarations Of Love

Here are two sparkling new postcard packs for you of the 'You Gave Me Wings' and 'You Are In Sweet Company' paintings. The printers really did a wonderful job, and I am sure these will make the sweetest of surprises to fill one's mailbox!
They are lovely as valentines, everyday declarations of love and endearment, postcards, or thank-you notecards!The packs consist of 5 postcards. Each postcard is printed on premium, 215 gsm glossy fronted card stock, with a blank matte back side, and measures 5.5 x 4.2 in.
Each set comes with 3 gorgeous cherry red envelopes and 2 lovery coral pink ones, wrapped with a sweet paper band and packaged up in a sealed plastic sleeve.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

A Doll And A Stroll

I have two more girls to share with you before tomorrow's update:

Little Prisoner Doll n.4


The Lovely Stroll, acrylics on canvas, 5 x 7 in.


Wednesday, 13 January 2010


With a faithful companion like this perched by her side, she will never have to worry about being alone...

She will make her way to the little shop in a couple of days!

Little Prisoner Doll n.3

It was about time for another one of these...

She is made out of 100% cotton, and apart from her dress, (which retains the lovely pattern of the fabric, and was just perfect for this theme) everything else is completely hand-painted, and she has been accessorized with some ribbon, a cute button and a little vintage lace ...
I am so happy with the way she turned out!!!
She measures 15.7 in., and can either sit or hang on a wall, thanks to a small ribbon loop behind her lovely head!

She will be part of the upcoming shop update, too!

Have a lovely week!

You Are In Sweet Company

Here's another little cutie that will be part of the upcoming update!

You Are In Sweet Company, acrylics on canvas, 5 x 7 in.

I secretly wish I had a gingerbread friend of my own...sigh

I also secretly wish I had a ticket to New York, if only to attend this :

Oooh! I just had a peek over at MOMA's site for Tim Burton's ongoing exhibition and it is so perfect! I love the way they have organized everything, and the music (which isn't credited anywhere on the site, so I am guessing it is by Danny Elfman is beautiful!)

A Little Acorn Enclosure

These little postcards arrived today from the printers, and while they will be added to the shop on the next update, ( I am waiting for some lovely and oh-so-pretty coral pink envelopes to team them up with to arrive) they will also be included with every little order as a special little gift!!!

I am so happy with the way they turned out!

Also, this little gang is now available at the little shop as a print set, as the original sold yesterday:

A Most Peculiar Quartet Print Set

I am off to paint and wrap something warm around me (it snowed again here in Brrrrrighton, and we 're expecting some more next week)

The Playroom (and little friends to play with)

This Christmas morning, this was waiting for me under the tree:

It's the Sylvanian Families Water Mill Bakery, and it has to be one of the best Christmas presents (for me anyway!). Plus I also got the Cream Cats family, which was so sweet of my little hedgehog, as I am missing this little guy way too much...

I think he got his idea for what to get me this year when he saw me painting this little girl:

The Playroom, acrylics on canvas, 8 x 10 in.

I love that creeping bunny in the background so much!

Letting New Year In...

Illustration from Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant, illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger

It is time to leave the year that's gone by in the past, and time to embrace the new one with all of its promises, risks, and wonderful surprises! I wish you all a lovely new start to the new decade and health, happiness, personal growth, generosity and love throughout the year!!!
