Well, it's that time of year and I have committed myself to taking part in 3 sales. Although they're generally a lot of fun, the preparation for them can be stressful.
So, in an effort to spread the workload out a bit I've been doing little things here and there. I printed these hardback envelopes for my prints on Friday.
The design features my funny hands and fingers which my boyfriend lovingly refers to as twiglets as i've got quite big knuckles, nice huh?
For those of you who don't know me you won't know that the ring on my left hand has been there for the last ten years so it seems as much a part of me as my wonky fingers.
Sorry the photo isn't great - will take some proper photos as soon as I get a chance.
Recently i've been keeping myself busy with making little printed cards. One of the great things about screenprinting things yourself is that you can produce a wide variety of colours easily.
I bought lots of different coloured envelopes to put these cards in too, so here's to an abundance of colour!
