Ladybird Likes aka Zoe Bateman. I drew her beautiful pup in exchange for one of her fantastic necklaces! I love love love my camera necklace and wore it straight away! She also sent along an adorable cherry brooch and (very kindly) a 10% discount code! and she packages everything so beautifully! She really made my day! I hope she loves her Pup illustration as much as I loved this package of goodies! I shall post a picture of the illustration once it has been recieved!
I love books. I love buying books...old or new. It doesn't matter. I love the feel, the look and the smell. Here are some I aquired recently:
Wrap Magazine which is really beautiful. I can't wait to use the innards to wrap a present...though i'll only use it for special people. Becka Moorillustrated and I won the illustration and some other amazing goodies: the little mirror that I really wanted and some uber cute kitty cat magnets!(Yes I know the illustration is upside down...i'm a silly goose).

Images of a little dummy book I made with neat spreads.
I have been busy with my job and busy with worrying and procrastinating.
To get my book published would be a dream come true...I think the thought scares me a little bit too...I also keep worrying about my page layouts and whatnot...I think once i've figured it out I can get my dummy book made and sent off!
I think i'm starting to learn that it's ok to redraw stuff and try new things...though I have been procrastinating...most annoying...but I put this down to feeling uninspired as of late and in a bit of a creative rut...going to get plenty of drawing done on my two days off and i'm planning on making a Lionel teddy.
