A few months ago, I printed off a few copies of my Lionel and Bike Riding bear illustrations and gave them to my niece and nephews to colour in and cut up/do what they wanted with them. My sister said they loved the pictures so much that they wouldn't colour the copies I gave them, but would trace the pictures and colour them in instead! Here are some images of a wonderful book my nieces (made By Chloe and Shannon=BOOM!) which is just so amazing! They even put some of their own drawings of birds, ghosts, people and bats!
This gift reminded me of when I was a child and would trace Quentin Blake's illustrations for the BFG (sorry about that Quentin B!) because I loved them so much! It's nice to know that my target audience enjoys my illustrations as much as I do! It has also inspired me to make and activity book for them all for christmas which will feature a few new and old characters, wordsearches, spot the difference and some little tattoos. Can't wait to get them made! I shall be printing and binding them myself so I better get started soon!

I found out a couple of weeks ago that I did not win the Ohh Deer pillow fight competition, but it was fun to have the opportunity to have something I had designed in their shop. I was the only person to buy my cushion...though I was disappointed at first I now feel quite happy about this, as I am the only person to own a cushion like mine! It's lovely and comfy and the faux suede is so soft! I love it!

I've always loved photography and recently I have fallen in love with old cameras! ( By old, I mean film cameras...) and have started finding them at carboots and being given them as gifts by lovely friends. You can see half of the collection in the image above.
I will be going to Manchester this week for my anniversary with the mister and should be getting one of my films developed too...shall hopefully stock up on film aswell. Would be nice to take some pictures of the lovely Autumn colours.
