Cats in the Snow

My cats don’t particularly like the snow, they’re house cats and only go out on the balcony so Tallulah below was being very brave for her :p
Tallulah braving the snow
Tallulah keeping her feet dry
George and Buddy watching Tallulah not brave enough themselves!

Thames Festival

Thames Festival



 Had such an eventful weekend, we was lucky enough to get tickets to go to the paralympics athletics stadium on the last night on saturday 8th september. It was fantastic all the athletes were amazing and took some beautiful photos of the sunset whilst in the stadium as well!

On the sunday I was up bright and early for a long day ready for our stall at the We Make London section of the thames festival. The mayors thames festival was on the 8th and the 9th and there was lots of entertainment throughout the weekend including live music, fireworks and a carnival. The weekend had a great atmosphere and I’m glad I was apart of it.

I took a few photos of my stall and was happy with the display selling my new buntings which will be available to buy in my etsy shop very soon.

Another photo of my stall with me hiding in the corner behind my display :) It was such a friendly vibe and was surrounded by lovely stallholders with some amazing work. To name a few Helen from Frances & Francis makes beautiful paper flowers, Grace & Firefly made lovely jewellery, Matilda Rose is super talented creating charming textile art.
At night all the lights looked very pretty although my photography skills aren’t the best.
I didn’t get a chance to take some photographs of the festival but here are a couple I found from the website Demotix by Ruth Whitworth and Sinister pictures. Our section of We Make London was situated in a great spot right by the little beach and helter skelter which was right by the fireworks at night time :)
It was my first time having a stall at a festival and I would definitely do it again!

Paw Palace Logo Design

Paw Palace logo design

I was contacted by the online pet boutique Paw Palace to design their logo. I was very pleased with how it turned out and so was Paw Palace. You can find Paw Palace online shop here and on twitter @paw_palace for pampered pooches.


Paw Palace also commissioned me to illustrate their gorgeous Bichon Frise Coco wearing a crown as well. Which has proven to be a popular design in the jubilee year
