here are some snippets of some illustrations I've been working on. And now I am in the midst of transforming them into stationery! Birthday cards, note cards, letterhead, invitations, calendars, etc etc. Keep an eye out on Pinecone and Lola store for the latest in 'print me' pdf stationery, and also some pre printed stuff too. I will hopefully have them in the shop over the next few weeks. Happy weekend. xxx
As you have probably guessed, I am a lover of vintage childrens books, especially those created during the mid 2oth century. Here is my latest obsession... Miroslav Sasek. I have admired these books for ages and finally bought one (The is New York) for my Archer's 1st birthday in July. I found this decision of which fabulous book in the series to choose quite easy. This is because a. New York would have to be my favourite city away from home (and am devastated to think I was last there 10 years ago... goodness...), b. I want to buy all of them anyway and c. everyone loves a fireman!! ;) Nick and I hope this obsession will spark a love of travel and different cultures in our boys.
Oh, and how cool is it that there's one on Australia.... I mean it was produced and thousand years ago...... I think I will order it next. xxx

Inspired by Spring time, Spring Bird and Friend mixes soft colours with simple shapes. I am currently working on a new range of Printspace Art and Stationery, which I will be adding to the store(s) and then launching the whole lot in time for our swag of art & craft markets we are doing in November! EEK... lets get busy. xx
