Mrs Textiles Feature

I recently stumbled across an email in my junk mail sent by a lovely lady called Gabrielle from a website called Mrs Textiles (Mrstextiles.com) asking if I would like to be featured on her website. After browsing through her site, I agreed! I love what she was doing with her website. Her aim is to form a website where children can find and browse different artists for inspiration-all under one website! Sounds like an amazing concept. I remember trying to find inspirational artists at school- it was near impossible! I would browse for what felt like hundreds of websites for hundreds of hours and find very few of what I actually liked. As a teacher, Gabrielle has caught onto this and has created a website to solve this problem. It serves as a place dedicated to textile artists for children to draw inspiration from and I am very proud to be a part of that!

New Photography

I have been trying (and trying) to improve photography of my items for some time now. Photography isn't a subject I know much about. Sad, but true. I recently purchased a 'mini photo studio' with a little back drop and lights in an aid up my photography. Another thing I am paying more attention to is the idea of lifestyle photography, Strangely enough, putting another object in the shot with your item does make it look miles better. I have no idea how, but it does. I guess it gives it some context and customers are able to visualise the item in use.

Anywho, hopefully up and coming photos will be better lit, well thought out and most importantly do my items justice! One can only hope x

New Oyster Card Holders!

New teapot Oyster card holder range. Each oyster card holder features a different vintage teapot. I have used different floral prints to add applique details to each teapot for added colour. While I was looking up vintage teapots I notices that many of them did have decorative floral imagery on them, so I thought the vintage fabrics would work well. Watch out for them in my Esty shop!

More to come!
