Etsy featured / New in / Giveaway

I said: What do you think of this picture for etsy featured?
Ben said: Yeah, it's nice.
I said: It's very 'etsy'.
He said: Put a bird on it!

I've trained him well.

I'm so honoured and thrilled to be the featured etsian over on the etsy homepage today. Etsy has changed my life so to have the folks there notice me and appreciate my work is really lovely. I'm also a little terrified because I write this blog as if I'm just trying to make my sister laugh, so to think a few more people may tune in over the next few days is a little bit 'Whoa!'. If you're visiting for the first time, hello! Lovely to see you here.


In other news, I've finally got round to making some A4 prints of my popular Modernist cards.

They are in the shop now. £13.75 for one print or £40 for the set of 4. That’s a pretty good saving right there! Printed on my lovely Hahnemuhle paper, they look really gorgeous. And now you can get to see the little details that are a bit too small on the cards, like the book spines.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<oooh more chevron dividers>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Finally, to celebrate my etsy feature I'm giving away one of my 'Things I like' tote bags, as sold over here on

So hop over to my facebook page, 'like' the giveaway and I'll put your name in the hat. Ta-ta for now. x

  11. Congrats! I love your works.

  12. Congrats on your Etsy stardom - so very well deserved.
    This shot is v.cute! : ) The interview is fab!! xx

    ps. Did you make the lady bowl in the interview shots?

  13. hi alisa, thank you :) the bowl is the 'spoon' i mentioned in the interview, it's by susan disley. i think they should've probably put the credit underneath it too as it's not obvious enough.
    re bilbao, it is a giant puppy indeed, made from flowers. maybe it was also in sydney. it's now a permanent exhibit outside the gugg. x

  14. Thanks Francesca. I must have skimmed over that bit, was probably trying to read whilst stopping small children from swinging from the chandeliers. ; )
    Haha, I'd know that flowery puppy rump anywhere!
    As for an MOF (month of finishings) sadly it'll have to wait till we've finished our WOL (Week of lergys) : P

  15. Oh my, I was away so I missed your big etsy fame day, but I'm heading over to the blog right now to read your interview!
    Oh and the bird movie is hilarious (I have no idea what they're talking about... that definitely doesn't have anything to do with what I do! ;))!

    Hope you had some great sales!

  16. I really liked the article, and the very cool blog

  17. Well isn't this exciting! Love the 'put a bird on it' comment.
