I'll be going along to Colchester Crafters and having a stall again on Saturday. If you're in the area please do come along and say hello! It's in the Lion Walk Church Hall - opposite Boots/ New Look, there's a door to the stairs leading up to the hall behind Vision Express. There will be stalls with crafters selling their work, crafters are welcome to come along with things they are making - there will be tea and cake available too!

Organising the Creations Christmas Craft Fayre has been keeping me busy - the response I've had from people wanting to be stall holders has been amazing! The spaces are now fully booked and there's a waiting list too - hopefully the day will go well and I can organise more events next year. The stallholders I've met/ emailed seem really nice so it will be great to meet everyone properly at the fayre in November... There's still a lot of work to do before then though with advertising, making posters etc I'm also going to make some bunting to decorate the hall - I've got the fabric and started cutting ... only 7 metres to make!!

The Hexley transportation illustrations have had a make-over (and a couple of new additions too)! I liked the way the background turned out for my newest Clockwork Bird illustration, so added a similar 'aged' background to the transporation illustrations as well as a new title; 'Hexley Transportation Centre - Vehicular Compendium'.
Here are the updated versions of the Solo Dirigible Balloon, Land Strider and Steam Omni Carriage No.9...
And these are the new additions...
Steam Carriage No.3 - perfect for getting about town this carriage seats two people and has a storage compartment in the bonnet!
Balloon Carriage No.5 - this two seater carriage is ideal for exploring the countryside as with the larger tyres and balloon it can easily traverse most terrain!
It's great fun imagining vehicles for Hexley and to draw them too - I hope you like them!
These illustrations will all be appearing as 5x7 prints in my Etsy shop very soon. I also plan to make them available as 8x10 prints and greeting cards.
