I have been so excited to show you all my two new books for Collins that are out on January 3rd 2013. Here is a little image showing the two books! 
One of them is called Top Dog and the other is called Rat's Wishing Hat. 
I have been working lots of very late nights recently to get them finished for the deadline but am proud of how they are looking.

Little Wishes mini notecard sets

I have been busy working on my Little Wishes mini notecard sets this week. These sets will go in my Etsy shop very soon, but I couldn't wait to show you them! Each little pillow pack has 8 mini cards and envelopes and a sheet of my mini stickers too. They are great cards for giving little thank you's to a friend or relative. Also they could be good as little secret notes to go inside lunch boxes or bags. Maybe even as a mini card attached to a little present too!

Pug Pendant

My lovely friend Abi is getting married next weekend and for her hen party a couple weeks ago the theme was 'pug dogs'. Abi loves pug dogs and so I decided to make her a little pendant with a pug dog illustration on and thought I would show you the photo of it on her neck.

I do have a couple of pendants available on my Etsy store and am also always happy to take on commissions, so feel free to contact me if you have a particular pendant theme that you would like me to create for you!

Wedding peg dollies

Well it's been a long time since I last blogged. The main reason is that I have been pretty rushed off my feet with work and also our internet has been down for most of the month! So while it's all now back up and running (fingers crossed) I thought I would show you one of the first commissions for wedding peg dollies that I have made. They were for a friend's wedding in London and they asked me to create themselves especially for their wedding cake. They gave me a description of their outfits and then I created my interpretation of them as dolls. Here are the photos of the dolls!

Join the snail trail!

Fabulous fellow crafter Laura Clempson (Cupcakes for Clara) is launching her exciting new range of products which includes the very cute character Colin. 
Colin is a very big fan of snails and if you locate and click on the tiny snail within my blog you will receive a free prize from Cupcakes for Clara, from her new range. 
Just follow the snail trail to claim your goodies!!

To celebrate Laura's exciting launch I have created a colourful little paper snail...

All you need to do is cut a long strip of patterned paper and curl it up. 
Then stick the bottom part of the paper under the head, to the bottom of the snail shell. 
Next, cut two small antenna shapes from the same paper and glue them to top of the snails head.
You could even try adding some eyes and a mouth to your snail to give him some character.

Before you go, remember to follow the snail trail and click on the tiny snail hidden on my blog and receive your free goodie from Cupcakes for Clara!
