It's a prince!

Oh boy! The bosom of the UK swelled with patriotic pride tonight, as Wills and Kate welcomed their bouncing baby boy into the world.
Whilst I'm not so excited for them that I'd queue for 6 hours hours outside Buck House to have my photo taken next to the easel displaying the announcement, the arrival of a baby is a rather lovely occasion and I like to make a fuss.

Here's a few pieces I've made for some new babies recently (with some details blurred for privacy). Should anyone be thinking of sending the royal baby a gift - or any other baby - do get in touch!

Ta-ra *Teashed!

This weekend saw the end of the 3 month long pop-up cafe, The *Teashed in Fenwick food hall in Newcastle upon Tyne.

I'm a big fan of The *Teashed, a local company who sell beautiful tea and teaware http://www.the-teashed.co.uk/ and I've been in to see them in Fenwick lots of times, for cakes, sandwiches, tea (hot and iced) themed afternoon teas and tea-based cocktails served in teapots and china cups.

Some of my framed black and white animal illustrations were displayed on the side of the shed for people to see whilst enjoying their food and drink. I was in there on Saturday and was flattered to hear the customer at the next table being very complimentarty about my hipster owl in the neon pink frame!

Coming soon...

Sorry for the recent radio silence everyone, I've been wrapped up in branding and websites  -genuinely exciting, so I'll allow myself a smiley here :-)

Can't wait to show you all, watch this space!
