made for a friend :)

today I made this for a male friends birthday.  I had seen something similar and had been itching to have a go, and what better excuse than to make him this, which has places with strong meanings to him. 

I often like to make something special for friends and family - mostly because I am hopeless at shopping and walk the streets with a budget in my head, often to come home either empty-handed or worse still with something that you are not sure they will like :(

Now I just have to wait for the black frame with a black mount to arrive and then can send it on its way - as always arriving a good week after his birthday.

Obviously I have also popped one in my etsy shop today!

Two more prints added to my etsy shop today:)

I have been a busy little bee today and have just added these two prints to my etsy shop today - have yo-yoed between dark and stark black and white onto lovely soft pastel colours.  Although both have hearts :)


I love how an idea nags and niggles at you, and the rush and concentration in bringing thoughts together - followed by the slightly flat moment you get whilst waiting for the next idea to pop into your unsuspecting head .
