Rapoodle - The Sketchbook Project











This years sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project. Thought I'd just let the story make itself up. I'm not sure if it ends sweetly with a lovely friendship or if she is kidnapping the poor soul! I did discover that the paper doesn't take watercolour at all but it was great fun to play with a creature other than a cat!

Percy's Olympic Hula Party!


Neither me nor Percy are big Olympics fans but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be a fine excuse for a hula! I am actually really looking forward to seeing what is in store at the opening ceremony tonight, will it be the usual Great British eclectic and slightly cringeworthy craziness, I hope so!

Giveaway - aka FREEBIES!!!


I have decided to do a giveaway to take our minds off the grey skies and torrential rain this summer is battering us with! I couldn't decide on an item from the shop so how about a $25 voucher so you can choose yourself! Jewellery, prints and purses, oh and some hand made Percy's too! All you need to do is comment on this post, give us a 'like' on facebook and I'll pick a winner from a cat, ahem sorry, 'a hat' at the end of the month! Winner will get a voucher to spend in the shop on the 1st August. Open to all, wherever in the world you may be!

Doodleworlds

For the doodleswap(13) this time I decided to have no plan and see where the pen wanted to go. So it's all a mix of the looping worlds of my heads insides. Great fun!  Have been reminding myself lately not to be precious. Remembering what it's like to be 5 and draw the simplest of pictures and then move onto the next without a worry of whether it could go in a portfolio. Having said that I did precede to rip one of these doodles tearing it out of the sketchbook and was most upset forgetting all about the earlier 5 year old me who wouldn't be fussed as there was plenty of time for more!

Made a wee sample of a Percy Purse, cute. Will be road testing before they go in the shop but watch this space, this wee boy's getting everywhere!

Smitten Kittens


Ah the lovely people at Modes4U put us on their blog. I bought my kitten fabric that I made the dress with from Modes and other lush kitsch fabrics too. (yes more vintage kittens!)
They have great customer service, orders arrive super fast and best of all there are often little extras surprises in the packages too. I love it when sellers do that and always try to do it myself to show how much I appreciate the customer.
Anyway back from honeymoons and sunny skies with a jolt although looking out the window this evening I can't believe my eyes, it's beautiful blue skies out there in dear old blighty so fingers crossed Poots will be going out to see her friends this weekend at Dubs at The Hall.
