Inspire Yourself

So I live here in Southampton, on the South Coast , its not the most artistically inspiring place in the world, that's for sure. We are very close to some beautiful places, but right here where I live its just really a big city. We dream of living down the West Country ..or even further afield in New Zealand
, where we spent our honeymoon. But like most families you get settled, and comfortable, the kids are settled in school with lots of lovely friends, and we are surrounded by family and friends who we would miss terribly. So that being said we try to make our house reflect what we like , and an inspiring place to live. I decided to take some pics to show you..some of them are from our bedroom , and my children's rooms. Luckily they have the creative bug too!! You'll see from my pics , we like to use pattern and nice fresh colours. Have a great day !!

Another Weekend Done!!

There's a high chance my little girl is going to be off school poorly tomorrow, so I thought I would do a quick post before I am on nurse duty..AGAIN..damn this time of year, honestly I cant take all this illness that's around at the moment.

We did manage to attend a christening today , for my scrumptious little Niece, and I created this picture for her to put on her bedroom wall. It's actually really nice to be able to share some work with you all , my latest design work is all top secret these days. Have a good week!!

Shake It Off..January Blues!!

Well I am sure some of you thought I had dropped off the planet last year with my lack of posts, but lots of exciting stuff started happening and there just wasn't the time. I am now being represented by the fabulous Cinnamon Joe http://www.cinnamonjoestudio.com. Its a fab opportunity and I am going to be working super hard this year trying to create lots of fresh work for them. They have taken my work off to Printsource, New York now so fingers crossed people like my work. I am so excited that my work is in New York..even if I still haven't made it there myself yet.

All that said I am finding things a little tough this week...its so hard to get back into the old routine, my little girls are finding it hard to get up so early for school, as am I!! And these dark, miserable mornings really do go on forever don't they. I am hoping creating lots of bright summery florals will bring me out of my wintery rut. I have created a couple of mood boards to surround me with inspirational images and colours, I have also been busy drawing some lovely flowers all inspired by 70's wallpaper, which is a bit of a passion of mine. Right I'd better get on with it...
