Fairy Soup

A neighbour just recently had the idea and we made fairy soup with our girls. The loved adding in all the glitter, flowers, shells and sparkles. Leaving it in the garden overnight to see did they drink it was priceless.  I loved it so much that I did a print of it too.

Its been a while

I've been neglecting this little blog but I'm back now and hopefully will have some interesting stuff to share.

I've started scanning my doodle a day in and they look so much better than the camera/phone option.

I've been thinking also of maybe doing a mini exhibition to show them all.....and selling a copy of each one for charity.

I'm still in the day 280's so I have time to sort it so watch this space.

Heres a few of my recent scanned doodles.

Personalised kids decor

Following my market yesterday where I took some original peices for the first time, a lot of people were interested in A3 size pieces for their kids rooms.  Just thought I'd mention that I can do anything really so if you have a theme or critter you love I can do it. Even incorporate the name somehow too.

Prices start from $180 unframed or $250 framed. Check out some examples......
