It's been so long since I last posted anything on my blog that I was starting to think I should just quit it. But it's just not that easy! SO, I decided to do a very quick update instead. So here's a pic of bump number 2! Due at the end of the month. Oh and a very Happy New Year!!!

Clare's silver ring

I'm loving this commission and plan to make one for myself! Perhaps with an oval shape so there's a slight difference.

Oli's best quotes

Oliver is due to turn three in July and has been talking really well for months and months. At a wedding we went to last September I met a speech therapist who asked how old he was and was very impressed with his skills. I have to say that I'm going to take full credit for this. There aren't many opportunities for me to be smug about being an incessant chatterbox. Some even find it annoying!

It does have it's downsides aswell though, like when he just doesn't. stop. talking. ever. at. all. And especially since he entered the 'Why?' phase. Anyway, here are some of his gems.

Pretending to eat a wooden orange:
"That's the sound of me eating orange"

Looking in to his potty:
"It's not a big poo, it's just an advert"

Coming through the front door:
Oli: "Do you know what colour our door is?"
Ben: "Is it purple?"
Oli: "No. The colour of our door is made of wood. And that is how the story began."

The random flavour of that last one though could be down to excessive exposure to Dr.Seuss

Linzie Hunter

I know this style of typography and illustration is very of the moment, but some do it much better than others and I'm loving Linzie Hunter's work. Especially the Spam project below.
