art & craft sale

I will be having an art & craft sale at my house next Friday. Here's a little flyer I've made for it. 

There will be original artwork, limited edition prints, greeting cards and handmade toys for sale, as well as myself and my boy (not for sale :P) and tea and biscuits, yay!

Please pop in if you're in the area. 
Maybe you can pick up something for Christmas :)
I'm also available for commissions all year round, whether it's personalised greeting cards, original artwork for your child's room, family portraits or handmade toys.

Hope to see you on Friday!

The race

Thinking back to when I was pregnant....this is how it felt going up the slightest incline!

Summer to Autumn

Here's a couple of pics. 

Top: "What I wore today" on an autumn day's walk in the park with my little boy. I know it looks similar to my last one, but I'm just warming up, exercising my cutting and pasting skills after a loooong break, looking after baby. 

Bottom: My two favourite boys on a summer's day outing :)

Oki has started nursery now, which means I get a little slice of my old life back, making pictures again HOORAY! I'm a little overwhelmed by my 2 free (well, not free exactly) days a week, after having no time at all for myself since he was born. There's so much I want to do, I don't know where to begin! So many ideas swimming around in my head...
My little boy is a constant source of inspiration now. Amazing how such a little one can teach me so much :)

GRRRR! Dinosaur jumper

I've completed Oki's second jumper, hooray! This time it's a dinosaur - a fire breathing one who lost an arm in battle! Oki growls when we put it on :D
The lovely buttons are from the fantastic sewing shop Ray Stitch in Islington.

Oki's rainy day jumper is already looking a little short for him. He's grown over 3 inches in the last 3 months so it's no wonder.

In return for his knitted jumpers, Oki gives me these beautiful things.


Baby Kanato :)


I made these pictures for my friends Rie and Kenji, whose baby boy was born in September. Welcome baby Kanato!
