Notebooks for the new year - 2

Notebooks for the new year

It's been a great Christmas and now I'm looking forward to 2010. The first two months I will be crazy busy but it should pay off and then I'm hoping to do another mailshot promotion in March. I have a lot to do before then. I am adding things to my Etsy shop that were popular at the craft shows, starting with a few notebooks. They are all designed, cut and hand bound by me. The pages are recycled paper and the books are 10 x 15cm.

The first design to be added is Madame Rose as seen in these photos. I'll post the others as I go. If you want one you can buy one here: www.ickleson.etsy.com

Happy Christmas Everyone

I am completely taken over with Christmas excitement this year. I've been baking star shaped shortbread for the neighbours and wrapping presents. I am especially excited about the Gruffulo being on TV on Christmas Day (5.30 BBC1), fantastic!

Anyway I'm off to spend Christmas in Devon, I'll miss my family and a certain little lady, but I'm really looking forward to seeing the sea and snuggling up round a fire.

Happy Christmas Everyone, have a good one x x x

I will no longer be attending the affordable art thingy, some times things just don't work out. C'est la vie. I still think it's good these things are happening in Cov thanks to my good friend Emma so if you are nearby tomorrow and looking for some thing a little different to do then pop down.

Chritmas Cards

I've sent out my Christmas cards, both real and electronic and so I thought I'd share this year's design.
I really do feel festive, it keeps snowing, all the shops are playing Cliff Richards and I've bought all my presents. So I have one last craft fair tomorrow and the affordable art evening on Sunday then that's it till the new year.
I'll be spending Christmas in Devon by the sea, so lots of long winter walks and then bundling indoors to sit round the fire drinking and talking - can't wait.
I hope you are all looking forward to a lovely Christmas too, I have a couple of friends who are having tough times at the moment but hope that it will all work out well for them too.

Affordable Art at the Lock Gallery

I took part in the Christmas Art fair at the Canal Basin in Coventry. I really enjoyed it and it was quite successful, until it rained, but for December it was a lovely day. Anyway, off the back of that there's another event, I knocked up the poster in a bit of a hurry, but I've seen the art going onto the walls so I know it'll be good.
So if you're in Coventry and looking for something a bit different to do, come and have a mince pie with us :)
