Daisys and butterflies....

Below is a photo from perhaps my youngest customer so far.


My neighbour, Miss J... aged 12... bought 4 of my cards in her favourite colours, framed them and has them displayed in her room. Great idea! Love it!

  3. Hello Jill, your cards look lovely framed like that . . . Miss J may grow up to be a designer, with a eye for art :) I love your doodles especially the paisley. Thank you for following my blog. I don't understand why your thumbprint didn't show up in my list of followers, I'm so glad you left a comment or I would have missed saying thank you. You might want to try again, so that it does . . . these computers can sometimes get stubborn. I am delighted to meet you. I too am a doodler and I love to doodle in my journal in the evening when my hubby is watch TV.
    Have a glorious day,
    Your newest follower and blogging sister, Connie :)

  4. Hi Jill, I'm back . . . I flashed back to my blog and there you were, so ignore what I said about your thumb print not showing my. Let's blame it on a senior moment, LOL. I just celebrated my 68th birthday. I'm going to add you to my blog list, that way I wouldn't miss a single post, or fabulous doodle :)
    Keep smiling, your blogging sister, Connie :)

Time to get focused....

Lately life has been getting in the way of my ability to focus on this little business. I've been feeling keen...excited...but too time poor to spend much time in my studio. Elderly parents and my gardening  business have been taking priority.
But I know from past experience that if I don't have my design work plodding along beside all those other commitments my life just doesn't seem to work right...it starts to feel out of balance.
So this morning...I gave myself a bit of a talking to and decided that I need to turn my focus a little towards this creative venture.  As I typed the word venture, I wanted to delete it and write adventure instead, because that's what I am craving...creative adventure. So...let the creative adventures begin!!
Small steps...for the next few weeks I'm going to use this blog as a place to record the daily steps I take to get this part of my life back on track again.

Creative adventure day 2....

Day 2 of my new creative adventure and two lovely things happened today. 
First, the lovely people who run felt.co.nz, (that hosts my online shop), showcased one of my products on the homepage....
and second, a lovely friend of mine bought a set of coasters.

This afternoon I had to take my car to get a warrant of fitness and learned that I needed something small but expensive fixed. So, came home feeling a bit despondent...The enthusiasm I felt yesterday for pushing ahead with this little design business had waned under the looming car bill...
Then I turned on my computer and discovered that lovely things were happening in my day that I had been unaware of and felt encouraged. 
So, back on track, refocusing and blocking out silly things like car bills....what small tasks can I do today?

I'm going to wrap up the coasters ready to post tomorrow,...
Sand some more coasters ready to print...
Start making a new makeup bag...
And of course, publish this blog post.

Don't you just lo…

First day back...

It's my first day back in my studio this year...
Too many tea breaks as I'm at a bit of a loss. A bit nervous.  A bit excited. Not sure what I'm doing. 

Vague ideas about projects I want to do, but nothing fully formed. Focus required.


I've pulled all my drawings and inspirational bits and pieces off my studio wall. 
They are tired.
So last year!

I want new.
A clean slate, a new page.

A couple of screens are stacked, ready to paint.
An empty wall wants decorating with new ideas.
Writing this....excitement is winning over nervousness.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
