Choose to shine

Do not dim your light to fit in. Stand tall, take your place, share your light and be happy. Inspire others around you to do the same. Choose to shine.

I wouldn’t want you to think that i have any favourites … because actually I love all the biscuits, especially the pretty ones! .
I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for the suggestions for new food packaging pictures; I’ve got quite the list to work through, so there will be lots of new packaging pictures coming soon yay! (And if you’re not a stories viewer, but there’s a packaging picture you think I should make, feel free to leave a comment below 😊)
.
Meanwhile these pin cushions, and as well as custard cream ones – are now available on my website, and the amazing creative fuel plate is from @hollyandcoworkshop .
Happy Friday everyone xx

Look for things no one else catches

posted in: Instagram | 0

Yesterday, whilst playing a game of Articulate, my 6 year old described a comma as “something you need for an expanded noun phrase” Undoubtedly excellent grammatical knowledge, but a slightly telling sign too, of an education system that churns out little exam machines. .
As a child of the 80s, when learning such things wasn’t part of the pedagogy, my knowledge of grammar is limited to the very basics. And so I would probably have described a comma as a full stop with a tail, or something that looks a bit like a tadpole. (But then again, I start sentences with and, so what do I know?)
.
Keep looking. Keep thinking differently. Keeping watching for the things that no one else catches x

Nice muscles

I’m off to the seaside this afternoon, and decided to use that as inspiration for my food picture this Friday which , for once, comes with packaging of the natural variety (not forgetting some handy hints on how to enjoy your moules c/o Rick Stein’s book, English Seafood Cookery!) .
The original, made from beautifully soft blue linens and Liberty print is available on my website – link in bio – there’s just one available, so snap it up quickly!

Custard cream

posted in: Instagram | 0

One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn’t belong …
.
I was prepping a custard cream picture a little while ago and realised after sketching out the details that I’d used the wrong fabric. I couldn’t quite bring myself to throw them away as I’d drawn quite a few, so decided I’d make them in to something else. Someone suggested they make might make good pincushions … and they were right! I have 7 available which I’ll be listing in my shop today.
.
Ps. I’m sorry if you have that tune stuck in your head all day. My personal favourite was the pinball number song … of course if you didn’t grow up with Sesame Street you won’t know what I’m talking about 😉
