Art Initial "S"

I recently had a commission to draw individual initial artworks for each member of staff at a nursery/cafe as a Christmas persent. Each letter features different plants and cakes. I am thinking of adding these to my etsy shop, as they would make a great gift!

Handmade clay christmas ornaments.

I know there are lots of people using crocheted doilies to imprint an image into clay, and this is old news, but I think it looks lovely and decided to make some to include in my gift wrapping this year. It's so easy!

I've already made some jewellery bowls for my mum and sister using this tutorial by sodapop design found at the Creature Comforts blog.

Manly Cove

Manly ferry



Some photos from a trip we took to Sydney. I still think the ferry ride is one of the nicest (and cheapest) things to do if you are visiting Sydney.

My boyfriend is a train nerd, and because I'm extra nice I let him drag me across the state so he can go to various train related places/shows.

Another hand pulled linocut print is available in my shop! It looks really great framed, (the frame in this picture is from ikea) and would make a lovely gift for someone special.

Bird Linocut

Linocut bird prints

This is the first time I've attempted to make prints, rather than just gift tags. I have finally figured out the consistency of the ink/ how much to work the ink etc. after many failed attempts! I know I have marks on the prints that shouldn't be there because I haven't carved the lino fully but I actually like this effect, so have left it. For sale in the shop.
