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.

Hi everyone. Today is FREEBIE day! You may recall me talking about Gratitude before and how important it is to have it in our lives – this post might refresh your memories!

Hi everyone. Dreaming on a Star has been at the markets!
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.
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.
I’d like to work more on these doodles and make some patterns and a collection. Watch this space! ♡
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. ♡
Hi everyone! Today I would like to wish you all a Happy Tuesday!
Tuesday gets a bad wrap – or it actually gets no wrap at all! It’s lost in the twilight zone of early/mid-week, not quite either/or.
We all know that Monday is the start of the week and many people complain about it. Wednesday is mid week (in fact in German, it is Mittwoch, which literally translates as that). Thursday is usually late open for some shops and some lucky people get paid on a Thursday. Everyone loves Fridays. Saturday and Sundays are the weekend of course. So unfortunately Tuesday gets looked over.
So today I would like to praise Tuesday! Here is some cool facts about Tuesday!
- The name Tuesday derives from the Old English “Tiwesdæg” and literally means “Tiw’s Day”. Tiw or Týr in Norse is a God of war and law.
- In Latin, Tuesday is dies Martis and means Day of Mars. In languages of Latin origin (French, Spanish, Italian, etc) it is also named after Mars, the God of War.
- In Japanese and Korean, Tuesday translates as Fire Day (Mars, the planet is called Fire Star).
- In the Indo-Aryan languages Pali and Sanskrit, as well as in Thailand, the name of the day is taken from Angaraka (‘one who is red in colour’) a style for Mangal, the god of war, and for Mars, the red planet.
So it looks like many cultures associated Tuesday with Mars, the planet and the ancient Roman God of War.
So Tuesday is a FIRE DAY! A day to get things done! If you have fire at the start of the week, it will give you the momentum to get through the week with gusto!
I hope you appreciate this forgotten day a bit more! Happy Tuesday – Happy Fire Day to you! ♡
