merry christmas angels!

happy christmas everyone.

i do hope you all have magical festivities and a great creative 2013.... i hope all your dreams come true (just the nice fluffy ones of course).

if you fancy getting crafty and making some paper angels like these for yourself, then print out my template and decorate. it is easy peesy.... even i can do it.

if you do make some, do let me know, i would love to see them!

they look really sweet on christmas trees.

every year i do a new one for the children in our family, which means our angel troupe will get bigger and bigger and in the future make the tree bulge and bow.

goldilocks and just the one bear in independants best of 2012 childrens books

how very nice!

Leigh Hodgkinson's Goldilocks and Just the One Bear (Nosy Crow, £10.99) is a satirical re-writing of a favourite story. This time it is the bear who invades the home: a posh apartment owned by Goldilocks, now a fashionable wife and mum. Leigh Hodgkinson's bright and stylish illustrations go happily over the top.

"happily over the top," is that a good thing.. gulpo

if you don' believe me (shame on you!) have a looky here

booksniffers pick of 2012

thanks to the lovely sniffing pug for including my "goldilocks and just the one bear" in your sooperdooper list of fab childrens books of 2012.

this news has made me oh so pleased that i might just reward myself with a biscuit (not a doggy one mind).

see the whole list here.

i am pleased to say i own about 90% of them (and the rest are on my christmas list!)

wonkybutton postcards yey! last, and this time the reverse is printed the right way up (i know this is wonkybutton, but i didn't want anything THAT wonky).

also have my business cards.... but for someone who sits in a shed all day and hangs out with 2 year olds, i am not sure when i will ever get the chance to use them ha ha!

not sure when i will be able to get my etsy shop live though, as go onto maternity leave in a couple of weeks (eek)
