Hello kittens! And we are off to a flying start at WDS HQ! And we kicked off with a brand new design for a Friends obsessed munchkin..
I also made a where’s Wally or Waldo but I cannot find a picture? Which seems appropriate lol!
I then started a big order from one of my lovely returning customers, the first one is a larger version of the very popular sleeping unicorn …
And then to something a little sad, this little criceratops is for a a newborn whose mamma was taken from him way too soon. I personalised him with a rose that was her favourite flower and entwined their initials on the other side. I hope that he will get comfort from this in the years to come.
I made a bunny in a different style, designed by a very talented little girl….
I’ve also done something way outside my comfort zone and submitted this painting to Grayson Perry’s art club , this is my piece …
Why have I called the piece madness? Because these woods have been a way of controlling my panic disorder, because they smell sooo good during bluebell seasons, the dogs and I become intoxicated and when I couldn’t see the bluebells during the first lockdown I was heartbroken!
And while we are on the subject of the woods, I took this picture on one of the coldest days recently -look at the frozen pond!
Finally, I am so happy to have a portrait commission that has turned into two this morning,! Here’s a progress pic….
Just to say I am closed until the 15th of March, in order to finish some orders and to get some Easter stock into my shop! There is one lonely bunny in there if you want to pay him a visit http://www.folksy.com/shops/whiledarceysleeps
The last thing I want to tell you is I have been vaccinated! I’m so very grateful for the way the NHS a has taken care of me and my family during this pandemic – I have no words for how much that little injection means to me.
Stay safe and I’ll see you soon
