Sprucing up my blog….

I feel my blogs been a bit neglected for a while and was in need of a bit of a revamp! What with being pregnant having a baby working in between I haven't had too much time but today I decided to spruce it up a bit..what do you think…?

Surtex 2014!

So its that time of year again where Surtex looms in the very near distance. I've been trying to get as many sets as possible ready to show through my agency Pink Light design. Its been quite difficult this year as I've had my six month baby girl in the equation so I haven't done as many sets as I"d have liked but I am pleased with the ones I've done. 

Bowie at Print and Pattern was kind enough to feature all the flyers from myself and the other Pink Light artists on her brilliant blog. Good luck everyone at Surtex!

At last she's here!!!

At last I've managed to get to my computer to post some pics of my beautiful daughter. Ameli-Sienna. She was born 14 weeks ago but those 14 weeks have flown by! Its been non stop nappy changing and feeding with lots of sleepless nights in between but its totally worth it! She was born breech (literally standing up) so I had a cesarean which I have to say was ten times easier than my natural birth with my first child four years ago. To be honest I've forgotten how exhausting it is having a newborn, I guess your body just naturally forgets over time. She's my little angel and we love her loads!

Belly Bumps and Photo books

I'm now in my last month of pregnancy and to be honest I'm starting to struggle. I can barely sit at my computer before my ankles start to swell plus with the temperature being around 36 degrees its quite hard to sleep with a huge watermelon belly! Anyhow not long to go now and I think the time will pass really quickly.

Recently some of my designs were licensed for Enchante as photobooks. Here is one of them. I'm really pleased with the results. I think this book would make a great gift. Also, thanks to Mary Beth from Pink Light design for getting me the liscense!

Some Pinterest Faves..

Pinterest is just about the best site for creativity and inspiration. I love it to research the latest trends to find amazing recipes and ideas for the house. Its so addictive though once you start pinning you can't stop! Below are some great patterns Ive pinned onto my pattern board lately by Mariam Castillo and Alexander Henry. Such beautiful color pallettes! Follow my boards here.

Lots of changes...

Here is a little sneak at an image I did for a collection called 'Utopia' for Surtex this year. I really love the bright colours.

Its beautiful weather here in Greece at the moment and quite often during the summer its difficult to work at the computer without the air con blasting and the fan on! I'm finding it extremely difficult at the moment as I'm 26 weeks pregnant which makes it even harder struggling with the heat. I have so many things to do though before this next baby arrives and the time is flying by! Luckily my sister and a friend are arriving next week so we will go to the beach for a few days so I can float my big belly in the sea like a hippo...bliss!!
