Hello everyone! Dreaming on a Star has been featured in the March issue of Sligo Now magazine. Would you like to have a look inside my home? You are welcome inside!

I had a lovely interview with Cliodhna McGowan where she asked me lots of questions about my design business and took photos of me in my home and studio.

If you want to find out more about the face behind Dreaming on a Star, have a look at the interview in the magazine (available in local newsagents).

I’ve included some photos of me at work (the one above wasn’t included in the magazine). This is a picture of me doodling with a nice cup of tea! Can you spot the Wonder Woman mug? That was a gift from my brother and sister-in-law. Some of the cushions on my couch are hand-made by me – they are very wonky, I hadn’t really got the hang of a sewing machine when I made them! The black-and-white picture on the wall (in white frame) is a really cool picture from Microcosm – it’s a sketch of different LP covers. I love collecting CDs, you can see some in the picture. I’ve been collecting since 1995 and really love album artwork. The other piece of artwork on the doors (top right of picture) is by my 5-year-old nephew. He’s so talented, I might hire him in future!  Oh yes I love twinkly lights – it’s like Christmas all year round!

This is a picture of my studio. I used to do all my work in a little corner of my living room but all my work started to spill over onto chairs and it became messy. So I moved everything up into a spare bedroom and I’m so glad I did. This room is south-facing and the light in here is so uplifting and conducive to work. I turned the bed on it’s side, covered it in wood and I have so much room now. I really love my black cat curtains from IKEA. I am very drawn to black cats for some reason. The little jukebox on the shelf is a printable from Claudine Hellmuth. I love her retro designs. Can you spot R2-D2 on the shelf too? I am a big mad Star Wars fan too. Oh look – more twinkly lights!

This is my studio all lovely and tidy! (It looks a bit messier now! :p ) I love this room so much – it’s so light and airy. When I worked downstairs, it was very dark and cramped.
I have so much space now and I get to look out onto my back garden when I work. The spare bed is hidden away on the right. I actually started to doodle on the wood as there was too much white space. The light box was a gift from my sister-in-law. I have book shelves at the other end of this room, with all my design books.

I am in the middle of renovating my back yard and I also have plans for my bedroom. I might blog about them in the future.

I hope you liked having a small peek inside my home and finding out a little bit about me. Thank you for reading. 

Lifestyle Photos of Personalised Pictures

Hi everyone. I’ve been busy getting lifestyle pictures taken of my work. I think the white provides a beautiful, pure canvas for my Personalised Pictures.

Christmas Cards Photoshoot

On 23, Oct 2012 | No Comments | In christmas, facebook, my work, photography, seasonal | By Tina

Hi everyone. I spent the weekend on a photoshoot with Alan Devins Photography getting some great shots of my Christmas cards.  My brother Alan is a talented photographer and here are some  of the photos. I am so happy with them. My concept was cute and quirky and he captured this perfectly. I love the contrast of my colourful work with the neutral tones of nature.
