Owls are next on the List!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Delighted to confirm that those extra individual Polychromos pencils I mentioned yesterday are already in da house! I know, right?! So they’re loaded on our website, both individually and as a little 12-piece bundle. CLICK HERE TO FIND I am so pleased, because after a little break in the SHAC-Shack next week, Owls are up on the colouring postcards, and the beiges and greys are pretty key. So it was going to be great…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Been prepping for Sunday’s rather special One Day Special. Remember those fab Garden Groovi Plates by Linda Williams? Well, we’ve turned them into a magnificent collection of Garden Stamps. Honestly! I can‘t stop building scenes with them! The possibilities are endless! And as if that wasn’t irresistible already, have you got those Entwined Season stamps I drew a few months ago? These ones: Wait till you build the scenes within these frames! Like this:…

Hi there. Thanks for joining me. Been up since the crack of sparrows, prepping for Sunday’s HOCHANDA TV shows. It’s the Big TV Weekend of the month, the first Sunday of the month. Has been for as long as I can remember back. Happy to report that all 2-4pm Sunday projects are done and dusted, filmed and sent. Now I just need to sort out the 6pm launch of the ODS! No worries. I’ve called in the cavalry on that…

The Happy Couple

The Happy Couple

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Been raining all day here, but that’s ok. The farmers will be happy. But not for much longer! Then they’ll need the sun again! I was looking at our lovely collection of Fresh Cut Dies. They’ve been around for about as long as Dave and I have been married – just over 2 years. And I know this to be correct, because it was our laser cut wedding invitations which set the Fresh Cut…

In it to win it.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. On my way out to a meeting with a few of the crew from work, to discuss some new ideas, and get a couple of fab new designs into production. Decided to check in with you here and write the blog before I leave, because these meetings invariably take longer than we think, and then I end up working till late into the evening. No good. If you don’t like something – change it!…

Hi there. Hope you are enjoying your weekend? I’ve been hanging out in Hawaii in my head, which is just great. Inking and doodling and colouring. So glad we are staying a second week. This doodle week has been a mammoth one! On the one hand perhaps we could have gone with just one photo, and kept it simple. But on the other hand, we had such blast, drew loads of new things, hibiscus, surf shacks, surfers, bamboo – and…

Serenity Saturday…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Much cooler today. Wind and rain very welcome in this garden! Spent a pleasant morning spring cleaning, and getting my house in order, which is always good for the head. Nothing like a tidy up to convince you you’ve got more control!! And nothing like finding a mouse nest in a drawer to make you feel you’ve completely lost it! Mmm. Time to get a cat again? Romeo and Juliet would never have tolerated…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Hot innit! Just finishing up on Hochanda with a couple of Mixed media hours. Glad you enjoyed the demos! I do like the old GelPress, don’t you? I did do an extra little demo, an extra, just in case there was time. But 6 is plenty. So here’s a little card which uses the Mixed Impression Beach n Pebble stamps… I used one of our new Mask shapes… They’re excellent for all sorts of…

Ocean Swirls.

Hi there Thanks for joining me. Hot or what?!? Just a quickie today, to shed a little light on the upcoming TV shows tomorrow at 9am and 1pm on HOCHANDA. My favourite kind of arty, grungy, Gelpressy printy stuff! A beautiful new Mixed Impressions double set, called Ocean Swirl, plus a double stencil set. The large loose pieces are just what you NEED in your life!! I got up at stupid o’clock this morning, to get the Hochanda filming done…
