BANG! - September Sale has begun

It's official folks. The September Sale has started. Above we have the creatures featured this week. They will be available at half price until Sunday. On Sunday I'll change the selection of prints that are on offer so keep your eyes peeled!

Well, I accidentally went shopping. It happens. It was good :) Above is a beautiful new jacket I found in Debenhams. I bought it, gulp. The picture above doesn't do it much justice because it's a much more vibrant mustard yellow. I'm in love with it and it fits like a dream, so why not hey? I plan to change the buttons because the ones it come with are too heavy and they droop - I'm having none of that. I found some nice big plain matte black ones to replace the droopy ones. Yes!

I now own my first (not my last, that's for certain) piece of vintage reclaimed jewellery by Liam. I'm sorry the picture's a bit blurry, very low light levels (autumns nearly here). I'll try and update it in the morning if the sun comes out.

And lastly I found the perfect pair of golden earrings by pebble (Jayne). Again poor photo by me, sorry sorry sorry, but I'm sure you get the idea. I love her work. I bought a custom necklace from her last year and it's one of my favourite possessions. If you're local you can find her work in the Nottingham Craft Mafia shop - 'Get Made!' too.

Right enough of my yellow themed post. No more shopping for me... hm... I plan to spend the evening curled up with my book or watching Humphrey Bogart films. You can't get much better than that ;)

As promised, some more information about the Sale - Featured in my Etsy shop only!

For every week in September (starting Tuesday 1st) I will be selecting 15 prints at random and making them available to you for half price.

Every week will have a new selection of prints to chose from so if you see a bargain you like, snap it up before it goes.

I will refresh and update the sale items on Sundays up until the month ends on Wednesday 30th.

Sainsbury's = Pizza and Roses

First of all here's a new print I'm excited to share with you. Called "Abstract Kitty". It measures 8 inches by 10 and is in the shops, now! I've been doing a lot of abstract squiggling recently. There's something incredibly satisfying about doing some blob like doodles, scanning them instantly and colouring away. The crazy coloured background above was a very happy accident. I've fallen in love with a handful of colours and seem to be using them in everything I do - this picture incorporates the lot. The cat's based on Trent, I couldn't resist. I'm cat mad at the minute. I want a cat. I want Trent but I don't think he'd like living with me. He thinks I'm his long lost cat sibling and spends most of his time practicing 'attack' moves on my ankles. (I use the word 'practicing' but really, he's got it down to a T)

We went for pizza in the evening and came home with pot plants too. Happy bonus I must say. I'm still trying to think of a good name for it (the plant not the pizza) Any Suggestions?
