By Alice on Thursday February 01st 2018 at 10:55

i can remember my nanny saying that time just speeds up and up as you get older and now i know the exact feeling, months feel more like weeks used to feel

i’m enjoying the doodle a day challenge on instagram - i didn’t realise it was a challenge for every month of the year when i started it in january - but it is! (it reminds me of when i started a pottery evening class which i thought was for a year, only to find out it was a 3 year wednesday evening commitment with an actual qualification at the end!). This month i’ve decided to do the challenge with a paintbrush/a few different paintbrushes/any paintbrush i can find!

gorgeous grandparents

By Alice on Friday December 15th 2017 at 07:32

this time of year it’s even more tricky to balance work, family time, and time with friends. Work gets silly-ly busy - and lizzy and I work most evenings and weekends (it tends to be 7 days a week for us through most of november and december). If we’re not at work, then we’re thinking we should be (or just thinking about it), knowing that the orders and work will be building up. And it’s always this time of year that things go wrong - this year (although we’ve totally loved the snow) it has put us back a couple of days because of postage issues, one of our printing machines has been a bit temperamental, and we always get colds and poorliness-es, and it’s also the time of year when we get LOTS of last minute jobs which are stressful to fit in, and we always get annoyed with each other… BUT it is ALWAYS lots of fun, and we love it, and it’s also the time (at the busiest time, of course), that I like to come up with lovely new design ideas! I seem to dream about them, or wake up with them! And this year - it’s the Grandma’s heart apron or bag - it’s really lovely and I think it will put a great big smile on grandma’s face (or nana, nan, granny, gran, nanny, nannie)

Logo for The Silver Birch Children’s Trust

By Alice on Thursday November 30th 2017 at 06:54

The Silver Birch Children’s Trust is a charity to help families pay for therapy and other services. They wanted a fairly simple, easy to read logo, to include a silver birch tree motif, and the use of grey/silver colours.

The chosen logo design includes a drawing I did of a silver birch tree, with spring like colours to indicate growth, and hand created lettering.
