This years submissions had to be drawn directly onto an envelope as no digitally produced work was allowed and my entry is partly inspired by my rediscovery of my rubber stamping materials, it was fun to get inky fingers again! I took part in a previous Mail Me Art project 3 years ago, which you can see here
Royal Mail aren't very popular at the moment with the price rises and size restrictions coming into effect next month which will affect independent sellers on etsy and folksy. Please take a look at Flora's blog post which makes very interesting reading and please do sign the e petition...

I spent ages searching for the perfect rubber to carve and I've still got a little stash of them waiting to be cut. I used to sell little groups of framed prints at my exhibitions and the prints do make nice cards too, perhaps I should find the time to make some new ones for my shop...

These are my Mother's Day flowers, and a very good choice too, thanks Jimmy! Gerberas are my favourite flowers and I love the zingy colours which fit in very well with our colour scheme. I'm fond of chrysanthemums too which always remind me of my dear Grandma who always had dried ones in her house when I was little.

I recently entered this design: 'Paisley Parade' into a mug design competition organized by Buttercup China. I am pleased to say that I am one of 10 finalists and the winner will be announced this week at Spring Fair International...I'll be keeping my fingers crossed! You can see the other selected entries HERE.
On the subject of competitions, todryfor are holding their annual tea towel design competition this month, and you can find all the information you need to enter HERE. I was super chuffed to win it last year and it's been great to see my design for sale in shops up and down the country, including Debenhams!
