Christmas Tiptoes In...
Before I go any further, I had better warn you that this post includes some rather gratuitous pictures of Father Christmas and Reindeer. It also includes several mentions of the 'C' word and if you shudder at the mere thought of it in November then do feel free to depart and come back again next time! (I won't be offended - honest now!) ;D
Being in the art business though, I seriously have to keep up with what everyone else is doing (or get left hopelessly behind) and so, I'm going to give you a quick peek into the festive part of my gallery!
Some of you may already know that my little Christmas Card Emporium is now open - I haven't liked to shout too loudly about it up 'til now because a lot of people are (quite rightly) allergic to All Things Christmas until at least December the 1st but now Bonfire Night has passed, I thought I'd just let you know what's in store...
Christmas Cards are available both individually and in packs of eight...each one is created by hand, titled and signed by myself. The individual cards are presented in a cello envelope, and the sets are finished with a festive red raffia bow and tag. 10% of all my card sales go towards the Down's Syndrome Association which I am so pleased to support; my nephew Oliver who is now 5, was born with DS and it is a pleasure to be able to give something back to such a wonderfully supportive organisation.
You can find out more about the DSA here.
My Christmas card shop features the return of some popular designs...
...and also my newest one; Christmas Kiss...
There's also free P&P for customers within the UK but I do ship worldwide too!
I'm really pleased to have my cards and prints in several lovely shops already this year, including the gorgeous Andrea Willis Designs in Scarborough, and The Rowan Tree in Devon.

Thank you so much for visiting me today, and if you've got this far then thanks again for putting up with so much Christmassy~ness!
Next time, light permitting (it's been dank and awful and photographs nigh on impossible to take) i'll be sharing not one, but TWO Ta~Dahhh moments of the hooky kind with you!
I do hope you'll drop by to take a look!
