Joyce and Penny

5 Dec

These two drawings are available in my redbubble store on a variety of items – iPad covers, phone cases, tees for adults and kids, and many more.

I have drawn inspiration from two very different women, one fictional, Penny, and one, sadly no longer with us, my grandmother Joyce.

Penny is influenced by my love for the wonderful comedy “Miranda” and the character of her mum, Penny.

And,  as I’ve mentioned, Joyce is named in honour of my grandmother, a wonderful woman who gave so much to her family and her community.  Her memory lives on.

Please go look at them, enjoy the movement in them, get lost in the patterns….

Nothing new to tell other than, sick kids, sick self and sick housekeeper – so playing catch-up now, albeit still with a bit of a headache!!  Plenty of housework to do….(*shhh* am my own housekeeper!)

Am finding I do lack in jewellery and scrap inspiration at the moment, so when I get a free moment, am enjoying others’ work- mostly on pinterest – am hoping to do some digitally scrapped “positive” cards for my lovely 10yo once I find the right sayings and my imagination returns.


I know, I know, this post is hardly much better than the last but what can I say… sinus headaches can do that to a person 😉

Need to do a new post, don’t I!

So…what to tell you… I have passed 100 fans on facebook, which I was pretty excited about!  Umm, am working a bit in my “day” job so aren’t on the computer as much at the moment, and I need to get on with some sanding and photographing of some new and old items.

Will that do for now, oh and hubby is on hols from tomorrow night so I still won’t get to the computer as often!  GAH!!

HAPPY EASTER to those that celebrate!!!

been a while….

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas with lots of food and merriment and may your 2013 be filled with joy, health and peace in your heart.

Am off outside to take some pics of new cards for my madeit store!!  Just whilst there is a picture-perfect amount of light!  Stay safe Tassie, thinking of you and our friends and family you are currently looking after!!
