Happy New Year!

So I'm really doing well with this regular-blog-writing malarky eh? Note to self: must try harder in 2014! A sort of resolution, I will try harder, really.

Well, where to start?! A very busy couple of weeks since my last post, working, walking, picture snapping, running back and forth to my printers and framers, badge & mirror making and plenty of general prep for my stall on Sunday the 22nd December. It had been nearly two years since my last stall so I needed to get my head together, gather all my display pieces and make sure I had enough stock available for the day.

The day itself went pretty well, made enough to cover costs at least which is always a bonus. I don't expect to make much money at these sort of events as my work is only going to reach out to a small proportion of folk visiting the fair but for networking purposes it's great, lovely to meet new faces :)

My badges and mirrors were a little experiment and I'm pleased to say they seemed to go down well, perfect little last minute stocking fillers and treats which was what I was hoping for. I still have a few left so they will be going up on my website shortly. Here's what my stall looked like:

At Haworth Christmas Craft Fair, Old Schoolrooms

A selection of compact mirrors & pin badges

It was quite a busy little place and there were lots of lovely stalls about, plenty of festive spirit too! I also met Katie Shelmerdine, another local artist and very talented lady. Katie's artwork is bright and uplifting, I particularly like her butterflies. Check out her website here

If you use Facebook, you might like to know I have a page on there which does get regularly updated with latest news, commissions and current projects. Here's where to find me:

This was my New Year message to all those who have supported my artwork and continue to do so!

Hi folks, wherever you are and whatever you're doing tonight I hope you have a good one! 2013 has been full of ups and downs for me but my art has kept me going, YOU lot have kept me going! So that goes for every single one of you who has liked, commented, shared, messaged, commissioned and generally passed on a good word or three about my drawings, thankyouuuu!

It's going to be a busy 2014 as I'm planning on putting my Zoology degree to good use and sort out some veterinary nurse training (something I've wanted to do for a few years) but I will still be making sure my pencilling continues and I'll need to keep them pennies rolling!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year

I hope you all had a good one! On to bigger, better and more exciting things to come this year.

Ta-ra for now! x



  1. Happy New Year to you Meg, your stall looks great, the work you put into your drawings is a credit to you. Wish I could have got over there and met you.
    Good luck with the vet nurse training, I,m sure you,ll do well.

    1. Cheers Brian! It was a lot of hard work but worth it in the end. It would have been lovely to meet you too, I'm sure our paths will cross at some point : )
