Whether you are enjoying the snow or the spring flowers, I hope this month finds you well.
Mother's day is nearly upon us here in the UK. Sunday 11th March is the date to remember.
Over at my Etsy and Folksy shops you'll find lots of lovely spring flavoured paper goods to help you find something pretty for those wonderful mothers....
I've added some more sets of 2, A5 illustration prints, which make lovely gifts. Also in stock are plenty of my handy A5 planner notepads, that fit nicely into handbags and are colourful way to stay organised....
Also back in stock is my Spring Bunnies gift wrap. Over at my Etsy shop, I offer a gift wrapping service, where any of my gift wraps can be used to beautifully wrap orders that are being sent out as a gift. This one is ideal at this time of year, as don't forget, Easter is at the end of this month too (Easter Sunday 1st April this year)....
The big news for all designer makers who regularly use Instagram is,
March is the month of...
It's an Instagram wide event/challenge organised by the fantastic Joanne Hawker (who is also a Somerset designer maker & Captain of our Somerset Etsy Team).
She has set up a dedicated site to help those taking part plan their posts.
I definitely plan to take part as much as I can this month. I've previously done the November #MeetTheMakerWeek events and found it a great way to discover other lovely businesses, network with like-minded creatives and discover more about my favourite makers. It's so good to find out about how the things I've bought from online maker marketplaces got dreamt up and created.
If you'd like to meet me as a maker over on Instagram this month, you can find me here:
To find out more about the event, here's a link to the March Meet The Maker website.
I look forward to seeing all those posts fill my newsfeed and getting to know you all a bit better...
Come on makers, let's 'Break the Internet' this March! (tee hee!) ...
Finally, a new month means that all the lovely people on my email list get a newsletter with a free desktop wallpaper for the month.
March's desktop wallpaper features my little iconic sparrow (I say iconic as she seems to feature on lots of my branding). The reason is, I adore spring, it's my favourite time of year....and in case it's not obvious (ha!) I am rather fond of birds too! We have a few regular visitors to our garden, not least the lovely little sparrows. They make me smile every time I see them in the branches of the trees or around the flower beds.
So March has to be my little sparrow with spring blossom and flowers.

Have a wonderful week!
Happy February! I hope it finds you well.
I am always happy to see February. Signs of spring are all around and with spring being my favourite season, it's wonderful to see the flowers burst open and hear all the birds return.
Of course it also means that Valentines day is only a couple of weeks away, so with that in mind, I have filled this post with this year's Valentines range from my Etsy & Folksy shops.
You will see there are two new designs fresh in...
First up is 'I Blooming' Love you' an A5 card with kraft envelope. Also fresh in this week is 'Valentine, You're just my type' budgie love card, which is also another large A5 card...
There are also a few designs returning and I have set up a Valentines Day sections in both my Etsy and Folksy shop to make it easy to find them...
Also, with it being the beginning of a fresh new month, it's time to reveal this month's
FREE desktop wallpaper.
I love the fact that February sees nature waking up, showing signs of early spring like snowdrops and crocus and a sense that love is in the air with the days gradually stretching their daylight hours and the dark days of winter falling behind us...hooray!
This month's wallpaper tries to capture that feeling with two loved up hedgehogs waking up among the spring flowers.
As always, this desktop wallpaper will be sent out to everyone on my mailing list. If you would like to get one for your desktop, here is a link to where to join my mailing list.

One last thing, if you are based in Somerset, please keep an eye out for Somerset Living magazine, a lovely, fairly new lifestyle magazine from the Somerset Gazette. This month is the wedding issue and you may spot a familiar face on pages 12 and 13! I understand that one of the places you can pick up a free copy of the magazine is inside Marks & Spencer in Taunton. It's definitely worth a look as it's packed with home, beauty and local interest stories.
Have a wonderful week!
