Another little book that was made using leftovers. I’ve had this lighthouse charm lurking in my studio for years, so it’s lovely to have finally used it!  The leather is one of my favourites, so sumptuously soft that it just invites being stroked.

Available in my Etsy shop, click here to view.

Or, if you’re from the US, you might know it as acetaminophen.  Whatever you call it, it’s a staple of most medicine cabinets and for one reason (a cold) or another (toothache) so far this year I’ve taken enough to make me wonder if one can buy shares in it.

Of course you’re always best to paint what you know, so here’s my paracetamol.  With a twist.

Click here to purchase it from my Etsy shop.

Every so often I’m seized by the urge to use up stuff that’s been lurking in my studio.  I go through phases of this because it usually takes a lot more effort to come up with projects for random bits and pieces than it does to work on regular stuff.  This little project was hit upon when I realised I had various decent-sized bits of leather kicking about, and also some spare cahier-style notebooks.  It was, for a change, actually a fairly quick thing to make – which means I’ll be making a couple more of these very soon once I’ve finished sifting through my leather stash.  The cover of this one is a gorgeous calfskin, and of course it’s refillable: the notebooks inside are from Hema but refills from Moleskine or Muji should fit just fine.

Available now in my Etsy shop.

Street Art #146

Another very tardy submission, these photos were taken by my friend Jill back in July.  So sorry Jill!  I believe she found these colourful pieces in a lane near Dublin Castle.  I do love that skull!

A combination of factors led to me not making it to the #womensmarchlondon yesterday.  I regret not going.  Although I quietly* live my life in a way that I feel is living the cause I would have liked to stand shoulder to shoulder with other people yesterday.  I guess Sister Suffragette really struck a chord with me as a child!

There were some truly fabulous placards on show yesterday, this would probably have been mine.
