Hi everyone. Sorry I haven’t posted in a long time. I’ve been busy at the markets. I’ve also been busy making Personalised Baby Announcements.

It’s so wonderful to celebrate the arrival of a beautiful baby with a gift that can last forever. These Baby Announcements are popular with new parents, grandparents and as gifts for New Babies and Christenings.

The Baby Announcement prints come in two sizes – 8.5 x 10.5 inch and 5 x 7 inch and come framed in a beautiful, heavy, white frame.

Dreaming on a Star at the Markets!

Hi everyone. Dreaming on a Star has been at the markets!

So far I’ve done four markets – three at Strandhill People’s Market and one at the Sligo Flea Market in the Model Art Gallery.

I love interacting with customers. Hearing someone compliment your work or making someone smile is a special thing.  I love making that connection – it’s both a joy and a privilege.

Tigerprint Kids Character Design Competition

Hi everyone. I’ve entered the Tigerprint Kids Character Design Competition with a little character – she’s one of the Doodle Dolls.  She’s very girly, loves flowers, colour and pattern and when she grows up she wants to work as a fashion designer.

She came from a little doodle I did a while ago.

Happy Birthday Olive!

On 27, Apr 2014 | No Comments | In design, illustration, inspiration, love, my work | By Tina

Hi everyone. Today is my niece, Olive’s birthday! She’s 3 years old and I drew her a little illustration to celebrate her birthday. She’s a cutie pie, full of energy and mischief.

She’s a sparkle of sunshine in everybody’s life.

My family tell me how much she reminds them of me when I was little. So I’d like to wish my little kindred spirit a Happy Birthday.  Love my niece.

March with Dreaming on a Star

Hi everyone. March has been a bit quiet at Dreaming on a Star. I had a horrible, stinky flu that lasted for two weeks, then I got a chest infection.

Dreaming on a Star - Go away stinky flu!

Thankfully I’m all better now and ready to face April with gusto! I had some happy news in March that I would like to share with you all. One of my illustrations will feature in this fab book about Dogs! Read more…

Printable Recipe Cards and Organisation!

Hi everyone. I’ve been organising my life recently! Maybe it’s the start of a New Year, but I want to streamline my life! I’ve been collecting recipes for years – torn out of magazines, scribbled down from TV programmes, tips and recipes from friends and lots of recipe books. The problem is they’re on scraps of paper, here and there.

I’m a fussy fusspot. I’ve been searching for the perfect book to house my recipes. I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I went for a plain hardback book from Paperchase – that way I could customize it with my own designs!

Recipe Book

I haven’t finished designing the cover. I made a little typographic doodle and cut it out and stuck it on the cover. I will probably change it. My recipe book is a work in progress, because I am only storing recipes that have been tried out and I actually like. So it will be a while until the book is filled. Read more…

Tropical Fusion Blog Hop

Hi everyone. Welcome to the Tropical Fusion Blog Hop – a collaboration of fabulous design by over 40 designers, celebrating the Pantone Colour of the Year – Radiant Orchid.

You’re probably joining me from the fabulous blog of Nina May from Nina May Designs

Welcome to Dreaming on a Star‘s blog. My name is Tina Devins and I create cute and quirky designs for stationery, textiles and the Children’s market. If you’re interested, have a peek around my blog and website to see more of my work.

Here is my work for the Tropical Fusion Blog Hop! I was inspired by the tropical lust for life and candy colours of a retro carnival. I thought of music and dancing as I designed.

A Spot of Comp Shopping!

On 12, Jul 2013 | No Comments | In design, designer, etsy, Hallmark, illustration, inspiration, shop | By Tina

Hi everyone. I’d like to share some Comp shopping I’ve been doing these past few months. Comp shopping is when you buy items from your competitors. (Although to be honest I don’t like to see them as competitors. They just work in the same field and there’s enough work for us all!)

These are some of the lovely treats I’ve bought!
