...working as fast as my broken finger will let me. well it isn't broken, just swollen or bruised but i cant grip or bend it properly. I struggle a bit with the day job and sometimes when i am doing my work - i am still at the factory - hence the lack of posts/updating. finally finished off this huge batch of plush teeth that i screen-printed many moons ago. also visited a new print room earlier this week and booked myself in for a session of making new screens. also squashed in two zumba classes and a bit of nintendo DS gaming. tomorrow night is Friday night also known as drawing night - working on Martin and some general print plans ready for my first session at the new place.

...building up a small amount of fish pictures. all are for sale and will be in the folksy/etsy update soon. yesterday i sorted out the final batch of teeth, all ironed and folded inside out ready for stuffing. lion badges are on the go as well - this time a mega batch of 150 will be made! the 'mane' bit of making is the best. today, the Mr Dr and I went for a little wander round the shops of Huddersfield. Was nice to get out and stretch the legs. must go back to the desk over there and carry on with the story/print plans.

here we go...

...catching up with the 'to-do' list. i have stopped writing them for the moment and just think about them while i am at the day job. i can often be found scaling/loading bacon with a very blank face, daydreaming about my print room and story ideas. sometimes i sing very loudly to the radio over the factory noise even though i can not really sing. must go and eat a sandwich and carry on - there is a market to get ready for - it is tomorrow in Sheffield. please check out the link. Up above is one of four new fish pictures that i painted last weekend - painting claw is not attractive but i had fun getting stuck in.

much needed update...

...with it being the weekend, I have got a little bit of time for a post of information. first up is a new stockist of my screen-prints, Comma in Oxford and it is a fun new design-led gift shop, stocking home wares, cards, books, prints, stationery, and vintage items. I am very pleased to have my work in such a lovely looking shop with other great arty type people. So if you are near by - why not pop in and have a spy and see what you find. Another new stockist is Harris Museum and Art Gallery of Preston who have some of my badges in their little shop. I visited them last week and it looks great. Onwards and upwards for 2011!

Also, I have been selected to have a stall of my work at the following events this year which I am extremely excited about. ReetSweet's Valentine Fair which is tomorrow in Leeds, Fifi's Markets in Sheffield next weekend, Craft Candy's Spring Fair also in Sheffield at the end of March and Maker's Fair as part of Saltaire's Arts Trail in May. More information to follow on each of these soon or please click on the links provided. I must get on over to the desk and get drawing.
