Am having an incredibly slow slow week - don't know what's wrong with me! Perhaps I'm coming down with something (but then I always say that!)
Here's some characters I did a while ago , I'm ashamed to say I have no new work so far this week to post.

Today is an exciting day for me - it's pet day! This afternoon I'm going to pick up a new feline friend. I've wanted a cat for some time now and am very excited that I'm finally in a position to house one. Coincidentally I'm working on pet designs at the moment - ok, these are dog ones but i'll be moving on to cats soon! Perhaps Olga will pose for me...but I doubt it.

It's been nearly 3 months since we moved into a house of our very own. Although the house didn't really need any work (except for a working shower) we've found plenty to do. We had a couple of extra days off after we got back from holiday so used that time in decorating the front room - we'd just had a wood burning stove put it (exciting!) and wanted to decorate and get the room sorted until we started burning our credit card bills (once paid, of course!) I really do hate decorating but this time we used Farrow and Ball paint in the lovely shade of Ball Green and it was so nice to use it dramatically reduced the grumpy comments from me and arguments between us both! Here are a few details of the room, mainly showcasing my vintage/car boot/charity shop finds I love so much!
I've just entered the Tigerprint competition. I really fancied this months brief but wasn't sure I'd get chance to enter (what with my wonderful holiday and the horrible decorating plus other work commitments!) but I'm glad I did, I enjoyed designing this. We had a night in my parents caravan at the weekend and although I felt slightly claustrophobic, I can see the appeal - it was good fun!

I've just come back from a fantastic week in Montenegro and I'd highly recommend it. It's an absolutely beautiful country with stunning views whichever way you turn. Go before it gets too touristy!!
Will be back in the full swing of work next week so check back for more work as it happens! In the meantime we're decorating...and I HATE it!!!
