So 2013 was without a doubt my busiest year so far. Last April I did my first ever trade fair (BCTF in Harrogate), which went really well, bringing me some fantastic new stockists and keeping me busy with orders right through to Christmas. Just before Christmas I nipped up to Sheffield for the launch of the Revealing Craft book which I’m featured in, it was great to meet everyone involved and I was really pleased at how the book turned out! The next day I posted out the last orders before Christmas, shut up shop and headed up to Yorkshire for a lovely Christmas with friends and family.

Now that 2014 is here I’m facing a hectic few weeks. After 13 years living in Nottingham I’m moving away, back to my home town of Otley and I couldn’t be more excited (or stressed!). Whilst I’m catching up on orders and emails from the Christmas holidays, we have just over a week to pack up and move, then we’ll have just a couple of weeks to settle in before we head off on a trip to Norway!!! So it’s going to be a bit of a chaotic start to the year but it should be a fun one!

I’m also working on a few new things, including the succulent drawings above which I’ve finally finished after starting them 3 years ago! I’ll be adding a card and print and maybe more to the shop soon so watch this space.

All the best for 2014!
