Got the winter blues…

1 Jul

Yes, it’s been a while since my last post.

No, I haven’t been super busy.

Yes, I am still “creating”.

In fact, I can’t wait to show you some of my new work.  I ordered them from Redbubble as part of a postcard-swap for the art group I am in on Facebook and they have just arrived today, so now you can chew on your nails with anticipation while we wait for Australia Post to deliver them and once the recipients have posted their pics on FB, THEN I promise to show you…(hint – bit steampunky/floral – I don’t know, it worked for me!)

Really I guess I’ve just been hibernating while the weather is lousy, as it always is in winter, here in Melbourne.  And don’t let anyone tell you it’s been a mild winter – just because it hasn’t rained tonnes doesn’t mean I have felt like going out or being energetic!!  Plus I’ve been trying to be good and not be on the computer as much – I can so easily be distracted and lose whole hours (hmm Pinterest, whose fault is that!!!).  Admittedly that has often been in the name of “research” for patterns and steampunky drawing I can do, so whilst the housework has suffered, my drawing skills have increased somewhat 🙂

I promise to return sooner than last time – mwah…

Now that my Christmas cards have left my madeit store I have restocked it with these, for the moment.

Buon Natal, Gesëende Kersfees and Nadolig Llawen 🙂

Have a lovely holiday season all, and I look forward to finding some time to make/draw lots of new things to show you in the New Year!

Stay safe x



20 Aug

Have had some lovely encouragement from a beautiful artist regarding my drawings, of which I seem only able to draw flowers and not much more!  Once I have decided what I would like to do with them, then I will show you, until then here is a couple of my drawings…

might think about necklaces or earrings, or I don’t know what!

Finally it stopped raining…

22 Jul

and the ground dried enough for me to take some photos of my new cards 🙂 🙂

So here they are, the latest collection of cards, quite an assorted bunch, a couple of masculine/unisex as well as some girly ones

So, what do you think…

They all need a sentiment or age added but I want to leave that up to the purchaser, that way they get their ideal card!

Do you like the photos, there has been much discussion about what to set your product on to photograph it on the madeit facebook page, most believe using a white background or removing the background is better but I am not completely convinced, my favourite pics in other stores are those with simple natural backgrounds, what do you think

Waiting for the rain…

19 Jul

To finish!!!!

So I had to make do with my brand new cutting mat as my background (thank you lovely husband and children for the birthday pressie!)

Here are some “emergency pictures” of the bespoke 21st card and some others I have made recently – had to photograph the 21st card as his birthday was on Thursday and we needed to give him the card with his present!

I’m looking forward to the rain stopping so I can get some good ones of the newbies, then into my madeit store they go 😉

Having said that if there is one here you would like and need a sentiment added, please leave me a message and I can get it to you in the post as soon as possible!

Coming soon…

14 Jul

Kids are back at school today after a fortnight’s holiday and I am determined to photograph my new cards including a bespoke item for a funny guy!!  Just need the finishing touch for it!

Now I just need the weather to play along with me, not too wet and no wind would be perfect thanks Mother Nature!!!

So, tell me, how do you make your pics work for you when the weather won’t play along?
