So, having truly ingratiated myself with social media this year or so, with full on love affair with Twitter, increased and growing commitment to facebook and more recently a shiny, new Instagram, I have FINALLY opened an Etsy store!
Having rekindled my love of taking part in conventions and arts fairs again in October, I’m getting digital with it, with the grand opening of my new shop! Woot woot!
I plan to sell all number of printed, illustrated things, primarily prints, cards and zines so keep your eyes peeled for fresh new doodles! Also, if you have requests for prints from my website portfolio, don’t hesitate to get in touch and I’ll see what I can do.
In keeping with this exciting news AND the fact that it’s that generous time of year I though it only fair to run a Celebratory SALE! I’m selling my Christmas Cards off for just £1 with first class shipping on all items in store right up until Christmas!
If you, like me, have left things shamefully late, get involved and pick up some neat new bits and pieces!
My Store is BagleyArt, so stop over and say hello!
This week, I have sunk my whole life into Christmas. I have literally been like an illustration elf; my whole practice has fallen into that big ol’, commercial black hole of joy that is December.
And I’ve been blooming loving it.
Here’s a selection of festive goodness I’ve been power-housing to bring you.
And for the, slightly more grown up type people:
I had them printed up into cards the other day and, I must day, I am feeling full on READY for Christmas.
Hope you all enjoyed and are looking forward to making your own Christmas plans.
Right, I’m of to look at recipes for Turkey.
One last time, HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
I hope you’ve all had a marvelous festive season, have had at least one gift that wasn’t socks and have sufficiently experimented with the maximum capacities of your tummies.
I’ve spent mine, as is customary, avoiding my university work by engaging in – what I can only describe as borderline dangerous – amounts of baking for my family. And as I have no work to show for the past week of fun and festivities, I thought I’d practice my photography skills (or lack thereof) and make you all feel thoroughly sick with yet more cake.
Go on, you can fit in one more helping. It is the season, afterall.
The cake is a cheats Christmas cake made with my Nan’s leftover home made mincemeat, put together by myself and my Kitchen Bitch (my sister) who was on egg cracking and gathering duty. I candied bags and bags of nuts using various methods for my family to nibble on, but kept a few over to decorate. Then whacked on a slice of clementine and a cinnamon stick to keep my mum happy. That whole, rustic farmhouse deal is kind of her thing.
We got a bit over excited with the mix, ending up with enough to fill two cake tins instead of the intended one, so I knocked up a cinnamon glaze for one to make them a little differentiation between the two.
So here you go, feel better by knowing that, no matter how little work you have done, you have probably done more than me who, once again, has earned the title of Time Waster Extraordinaire.
Ah well, tis the season to be a giant waster. That’s a classic phrase right?
