 The very beginnings of some brand new designs for Spring 2013... I haven't done any designing or proper drawing for a little while, and I am just starting on my ideas for some new things. I think the best way to get started is to make a mess and play around with colour in my sketchbook. It's a lovely, free way to work and sets the tone for the images and ideas which will follow.

P.S I love my new house. Just sayin'.

So, as I have mentioned a million times, I've just moved house. Everything (bar a couple of boxes which are filled with cards and envelopes!) is unpacked and put away neatly and my flatmate and I totally love our new place. We have a lovely cosy gas fire in the living room, nice comfy sofas, a sweet galley kitchen with double doors (perhaps my favourite feature in the whole place..), and we have lovely big bedrooms with ridiculously comfortable beds. We decided not to get a TV, and we'll see how long that lasts. So far it's been really nice and peaceful without one. I also bought myself a massive corner-desk, which juuuuust fits into a lovely sunny corner in my bedroom. I've got it all very neatly laid out and I hope I can keep it that way... I love having a new workspace; it feels good to refresh and get everything organised. It's also so nice to have much more space! In my last flat there was about a foot of space inbetween all my furniture... I actually have floor-space now! Yeah! Now everything's sorted I can finally get going with some work and developing the business. This afternoon I'm going to start making a tree out of cardboard. More on that tomorrow.

I have finally moved house, and have everything unpacked and juuuuust about organised. I am sure I will post some dorky pictures of my lovely new house pretty soon.. On Monday I went down to London to have a quick look around Top Drawer and see a friend. I took this photo from the train window on the way home.. it's a little bit rubbish but I like it anyway. August and September have been a bit more laid-back with work stuff, and now I've got moving house out of the way I feel it is time to get back on track and make some more progress...

In other news, I'm really enjoying my new gigantic corner desk.

 My my, so it's September already! I know I keep going on about it but really cannot believe how quickly this year is flying by! So much has happened though, it's been a bit crazy. Yesterday I started a drawing with some lovely Autumnal colours, and after I finish that today I am going to start the epic task of sorting out and packing up everything for moving house/studio next week. Very excited to have a really good clear out and to get everything nice and tidy and organised in my new place. I'm also really looking forward to the onset of Autumn with it's pretty colours and fresh, crisp air. And getting my lovely duffle coat back out!
