Anyone who knows my work will know my fondness for images of trees.
I have always loved illustration, but I think it was probably my husband who
passed on his love of trees. He's a sucker for a fir tree and has planted them all over our garden.
This wallpaper in our tiny understair clockroom is my favourite. It is vintage - 1930's I think.
It's the smallest room in our house but one of my favourite rooms.

Rings proved really popular at Origin, especially the rabbits!

I'm back from London a week now.
Exhibiting at Origin was fun. Exhausting, but great to catch up with my wonderful returning customers as well as meeting lots of new ones who will hopefully also get the bug. Thanks to everyone who purchased or left lovely comments.

I have been blogging for several months now, trying it out. Today is the first day my blog has gone on my website.
I decided to start blogging mainly because of the nature of my work - its impossible to show everything I do on my website - mainly because rarely no too items are the same.
In this blog I want to record the different variations of pieces listed on my website, as well as new pieces I'm working on.

I'll be out of the workshop until week beginning Monday 12th October , hopefully with some shots of Origin.

Above is one of the new necklaces I've been working on. I have been creating my own cabochons. I love sourcing vintage items but sometimes its impossible to find exactly what you're looking for.

My new postcards arrived yesterday. This is the piece I used for the image.
'Souvenir' brooch. I tried to upload the professional photo I had taken, but it just wasn't happening.
I have to say I am pretty useless on the computer!
Most of the photos taken on this blog are taken on my mobile, hence the quality - that's my excuse anyway.

It's been a crazy month. I'm been grabbing every possible moment in the workshop preparing for Origin.

Wouldn't have been possible without unbelievable support from Ian, mum, dad, sister and mum and dad in law. My parents are on their way over from Ireland. They'll help Ian with the boys next week. My dad is driving me down to London to help with set up. I'm a lucky girl!

I leave for London on Sunday. I'm really excited as I've had a two year break from the show to be with the boys as has my great friend joanne. We're staying together in London and for the first time ever have a stand next to each other, so looking forward to spending time together.

A few week ago I was involved in the shoot for the new Craftscotland Cinema Campaign, The C Word. Here is the advert!
