Very excitingly you can now find us stocked at Dotty’s Teahouse in Carshalton! A match made in heaven – the purveyors of the finest tea and cake South of the river (my choice? A pot of Russian Caravan and the victoria sponge) and the fanciest cosies to accompany it. Dotty’s also do a great Rhyme & Story time on a Monday & Tuesday morning and host a whole range of workshops and clubs.

If you’re not local, all our cosies are available on the Etsy site.

There’s been a long radio silence here due to some horrible hackers deciding they will hijack this URL to divert the 3 people who actually read this (me, my mum and…me again) to sites selling illegal medication. But thanks to the amazing Rich of Dogwonder (@dogwonder on Twitter – can’t recommend them highly enough if you need a brilliant UX Developer) I’m now back up and running. So back to nicer things…

I always love working on wedding invites for friends – and I was really pleased to be asked by my very good friend and pub table-tennis champion, Paula, to work on her save the dates and invites. I’m really pleased with how the illustrations turned out – the selection above comes from across the stationery pieces, and they’ve used them on their wedding website, too.
And tomorrow we’ll be off to the wedding – and I will attempt to defeat the bride in the rematch of our epic, 5-set, beer garden match of 2010 which has since become the stuff of legend.

Congratulations, Paula and Chris!!

UPDATE: I lost. but I had to let her win, right..?

I’ve been having fun recently working on a project for a friend, Mark (you can take a look at his site here). Mark’s the very definition of a polymath, and among the many ways he puts his creativity to work is as one (yes, one!) of his musical incarnations, Uffmoor Woods Music Club.

Mark asked me to work on artwork for his new release, Everything I Will Remember When We’re Gone and it’s been such an enjoyable project. I hope I’ve done the music justice, it’s a beautiful collection of songs.

I made Nigella’s Chocolate Guinness Cake for our St Patrick’s day lunch with friends. I can’t recommend this recipe enough. The batter was made in 10 minutes, then an hour in the oven. It’s one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve had. The Guinness makes it really light, you can’t really taste it, just a slight malty taste… Delicious! Happy St Patrick’s day!
