Buy Handmade This Christmas 2013!

I love handmade art and crafts… especially the finer type that are sculptural in form, I would love to create more adventurous things but I’m a big chicken!

Maybe if I sell more prints then I could experiment more ;-P

I’m in the UKHandMade 2013 showcase listings and here’s the magazine. (I’m on page 48!)

Also have a look at their Winter 2013 magazine – the felt artist is amazing! There’s an entire interview.

Another POD site… it’s getting out of hand!

I though I’d try the worlds largest Greeting Card store for some of my work. So far 9 out of the 14 I submitted have been released into the shop.
I’ve uploaded only one illustrative type card and that’s the one got featured on their home page – lol.

And another…

This time it’s a british company – so this would be good for people who want prints/canvas/framed images on their walls without added postage – they also do mobile phone cases too.

Photo4me.com – you can get a preview of how the art work will look on your wall – my lounge really does not look this neat or white though!!
