Thought I would share with you my new picture book idea. I have had this idea in my head for a while and as soon as I had a day off from work I wanted to visualize it! I have nearly completed the story, although I am sure it will change and develop as time goes on. I often feel inspired by the animal character first and then love to create him/her to inspire the writing side. I have a few other title ideas for other animals to form more of a 'series' and am hoping to visualize these after xmas!

Well last week was Secret Santa time at work. Every year I try to create a handmade item. My gift this year was for a workmate learning to drive. Like me, she is hoping to pass her driving test next year. She is learning in a Mini, so I decided to make a Mini Mouse for her car, once she passes. I stuffed Mini Mouse with a handful of dried lavender too!

Once again I am very excited to be asked to create another envelope for the great charity campaign called Pushing the Envelope. The charity help to raise money for The National Literacy Trust. They have invited me, along with many famous faces to create an envelope for the theme of 'Inspiration'. I decided to illustrated the quote: Reach for the moon. Even if you miss you will land among the stars.
The envelope will be sold on ebay to raise money for the trust. I hope it sells for a good amount to help them. You can view all the envelopes so far at: http://www.pushingtheenvelope.info/
