Ok, just thought I’d post this quickly, as it was sent to me by a friend and I thought it was pretty cool. Check it out, have a play and relax it’s almost the weekend!

Ah, finally I have found the Etsy Mini!! What a wonderful little advert, I thought I was pretty up todate with the little Etsy gadgets but I learned something new today.

Behold the might Mini!!

… ok so it turns out I can’t seem to get it working in my post, so just one more thing before I can show it to the world, my apologies!

As I’ve been busy with some family things over the bank holiday weekend and with my new much improved printer that arrived yesterday (much to my excited glee), I haven’t had a great deal of time to concentrate on new images. So I thought as my posts have been a little sparse I would share a couple of designers I found on Etsy, that were really inspirational to me. It was difficult picking two to show as there are soo many talented people on there, but here they are :

– Her art work is absolutely beautiful. The application of the different media she uses is very accomplished and she has a strong use of light and shadow in her work which makes it really striking. I love the sketchy and painterly way the media is applied. Krystyna81’s work is definately something I would put up on my own walls.

– These t-shirt designs are lovely and very wearable. I could definitely see myself in one of these, the only problem would be deciding which one as there are so many nice designs!

Yes, thats right my very first sale! It’s very exciting, I woke early Saturday morning to find that my print, Dreamin had sold earlier, what a fantastic way to start the weekend. I’m very chuffed and just wanted to share this moment, which I hope is only the beginning!

Have a great weekend and bank holiday!

So here are few of the holiday snaps, I wish I could put more up I think it’s all about quality not quantity! I choose these ones for different reasons, their interesting patterns/history and just because I like the composition. I had lots to choose from in the end so it was very hard, these aren’t necessarily my favourites, they’re just ones I find currently interesting.

Ok so I’m a little late of the mark for this as I opened yesterday, but I thought I’d put up images of the prints I have launched with. Initially it’s only 6 but I plan to expand that shortly, unfortunately with a full time job I’m finding there are never enough hours in the day! But without further ado, here are the 3 of the 6 prints :

Ok, so I haven’t spent anytime of my blog….ooops, but I do intend to recify this now that I have my holiday out of the way and I can finally but a lot more of my energy into Etsy.

I have had a wonderful break with my partner, family and friends and I feel much more refreshed and raring to go. I will post some of the photos I took whilst in the US, some are very interesting and I love capturing elements that people can tend to over look when they’re busy taking in the whole picture and not the parts that make it up. But you can decide for your selves! I’m particularly pleased that we managed to have our holiday unspoilt by hurricanes and tropical storms, especially after I saw that Key West was evacuated at the beginning of the week! My condolences to those that were there at the time, I hope the weather didn’t completely ruin your break, and to the locals although they’re probably more used to it by now.

Ohh and I’d like to shout out to Team GB for an absolutely amazing medal haul so far! The best since 1920, the team has worked sooo hard and I feel incredibly proud by their achievement, not just for themselves but representing our country. Go GB, I really hope you beat the medal total the government has set, that’ll show them!
