Well I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have re charged the batteries. I had a very relaxed festive holiday and have lots to tell you for the beginning of the year so far.
My main aim for this year for Sweet Pea Designs was to explore fairs and I am really pleased to announce I will be attending the Spring home, food and gift market, The Roundhouse, Derby. I will be amongst other stall holders such as Joy Interiors, Paper Cotton and Sally's Shed. The fair will be on the 19th March 10am - 4pm so pop along, I'd love to see you there.
January has seen me exploring my lovely village for lots of walks, coming across so many beautiful horses, I'll have to paint one soon. The garden is showing signs of bulbs peeping through the soil already and indoors there in full bloom and smelling amazing.
The website I'm delighted to say has had fantastic feedback and many views which I'm so pleased about. Christmas commission also have been received with many compliments and emails of them in situ. This piece was designed in my illustrative style for a Grandma capturing her four Grandsons and love of rabbits. I particularly liked Arthur here, nick named by the family as king Arthur, hence the sword and crown!
My other exciting piece of news is that I am collaborating with The Country Shed, selling my original pieces through her website too. For carefully selected country inspired home and gift business to sell on the market place Steph has set up. I'm so grateful to have been asked and feedback already has overwhelmed me. With many more followers on Instagram and such lovely comments. Take a look at www.thecountryshed.co.uk I have two original pieces for sale a calf and runner duck.
And just to keep you on your toes...............I have also been developing the scenes for the illustrations to accompany the children's stories. We have lots in the development stages at the moment but again I'm delighted with the feedback already and meet regular with the author. A publisher has been contacted so watch this space!!!! Enjoy the Monday morning teasers.....x
