A/W 19-20 The Collection So Far

The summer break feels like it happened eons ago! As soon as the camps were over and the kids were nestled back into school, I dived straight into printing the Autumn/Winter collection. That first day back in my studio was a beautiful experience. The silence, the space, the empty print table beckoning me. The ability …

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 …

Forced Breaks – When Fate Takes You In Hand

I haven’t blogged much over the past few weeks because, well, the ongoing construction of my studio has turned me into a nomad of sorts and slowed me down. I have been feeling pretty discombobulated and odd (well odder than usual). It’s been weird. I love working. I like to be left in solitude to …

Cuteness Overload – The Perks of Designing Babywear

I opt to screen print onesies for babies because I love babies. I love them with the same intensity that I love chocolate easter eggs. They make me so happy when they are around, and I yearn for them when they are gone. My own babies have grown up into standard child size, and find …

An Honest Tale About Owning A Business And Sticking At It

I find being an owner of a small business so…freaking…hard sometimes. Actually, I find it hard most of the time. All those pretty, pretty photos on Instagram of me serenely working at a cluttered desk, or stacks of my work drying against sunny windows – glossy products of my industriousness, really don’t cover it at …

2018 in Review

I have been in that strange in-between fuzzy space where life, work, and play have dissolved into a hot, soupy mess. Those few days between Christmas, and the new year, are always hazy and insubstantial. I feel I should really do some work, but I also feel floppy, disoriented and overly affected by the kids …

Take A Break Already!

I am so done with this year… …but not in an angry or frustrated way. It has been a good year for me, professionally, and a very productive craft show season. However, right now my mind is turning into jelly – it desperately needs a winter break. After a couple of months of working weekends …

Work Hard, Take a Break, Smile

Those of us charged with setting our own schedules every day are particularly prone to being workaholics (I’m looking at you, most small business owners). Not having a boss, or colleagues to answer to can go one of two ways. Either you fall apart, or you become very, very organized. I’ve become something of an …
