A day at the office

Ah, this is what it's all about. Sitting on the floor with my beautiful little girl doing a bit of work. I've almost completed all of the roughs for one of the books I'm currently working on, and so far they have gone down very well. It's always a bit nerve racking sending in the first batch of images to a new client, but very motivating when they love them!


Of course I can't show you any sneak peeks so here's a pic of Jade instead!


Oooh I've just realised she's wearing YELLOW! What's going on there?!

Something out of character

Anyone who knows me well would know that I have a strong dislike for the colour yellow! I find it the hardest colour to work with and I avoid using it in my designs when ever possible!

Then along came this great big clock!


Check out the size of it!


Something about it just struck me as exactly what we needed to add to the nursery! I guess it's like a great big sun brightening up the room! We found it at the wonderful Mill Markets on a recent trip to Daylesford.

It's a lovely feature on such a large wall. I still need to get some shelving for the other end of this wall. I am thinking box shelves above this chair area.


I have managed to get a few more things up on the walls, but I still have some fabulous prints to frame and set up. Oh, and of course there's still the curtains! I don't know what do about them, but I am thinking something simple as the room is already so busy! I also need to get the rest of the lanterns hung up, but I am loving how everything is coming together!






And here's the gorgeous girl herself, lounging about in the cushion that I made her.



Hasn't she grown!
