Recent Happenings

I have not felt like writing a blog post in a while. It just hasn’t been happening naturally because I haven’t had the time to sit and think about my days at all.The holiday shopping season is the busiest time of the year for me, and it seems to start earlier and earlier each year. …

Ageing Up With My Market

Don’t worry, I’m still primarily all about the babies and little kids. I will always make onesies with cute animals, and t-shirts to hug your tots’ potbellies. However, those tiny creatures actually grow up and get opinions at some point. My own first baby is now thirteen years old. How is that even possible? I …

Wanna See My New Studio?

Do you? Do you, do you, do you? It really does not matter if your answer to the above question is ‘no’. I am absolutely and totally in love with my new workspace and am going to share it with you anyway. A little backstory first… For ten years I have worked from home, screen …

Finding My Screen Printing Bliss

One of the greatest advantages to running my own business is that, it is very hard to ever be bored with my job. After an intense and very physical summer of running a summer camp and teaching art all day every day, it is really lovely to switch gears for a while, and get back …

I’m as guilty as the next person of this, I’ve been shamelessly self-promoting since I started my little design venture, and am hopelessly hooked on Instagram now. But I don’t …

I have been busy screen printing all week, which is why you are only getting this week’s blog on a Friday. Screen printing can stop the world for me. I forget to eat, work out, make phone calls, and generally do anything that requires me to move from my printing table. It is an activity …

Mayday, May Day, and Mayhem. The Busiest Month of The Year

Apparently the distress signal Mayday comes from the French term m’aider, which means “help me”. The signal was invented in the 1940s by a radio officer in Croydon airport. These two facts make me smile, because, first of all, I like the fact that something so important came out of Croydon; the term “mayday” comes to mind frequently when …

A Week of Printing and Potato Chips

I have been busy this week doing my own brand of haphazard screen printing. Remember when I blogged about imperfection being my thing? No? Then read here and understand what I’m all about.

My Week So Far/ or Screen Printing and Self Help

I’m not even sure what to write for this weekly dispatch. My brain seems to have congealed into a sticky, overheated mess. I’m pretty sure that I’ve done quite a lot this week, my body certainly feels like it has done a lot, but my brain feels as limp as a jellyfish, and refuses to …
