toy run

i thought i'd bring to your attention something which i thought was rather lovely ...

fellow illustrator stacie swift is taking part in a christmas toy run on december 8th, where a group of wonderful people will be driving from london to guildford, stopping on the way at the john radcliffe hospital and the CHASE hospice delivering toys and gifts to the sick and terminally ill children who won't be home for christmas.

"presents are needed for kids of all ages, from babies to young adults and can be as big or small as can be afforded - we want to collect as many as we can to really spread christmas cheer and make the day as special as possible ...

Clothing, jewellery, stationery, baby toys, make-up, toiletries or anything else you make that you think would be perfect for Christmas, all would be appreciated!!

stacie also had the ingenious idea of calling upon her creative friends to donate some of their child-friendly work to the toy run too! i will be sending across a bunch of my tattoos, if you would like to donate something(s) head on over to stacie's blog to find out how

so, i wanted to share with you a couple of *amazing* press features my tattoos have gotten recently ...
first up, the ever so beautiful frankie magazine posted my tattoos on their blog. since they're australian this all happened whilst i was sleeping, but i woke up to so many lovely messages and sales, which was  such a wonderful start to my day!
a massive thank you to frankie for sharing my work, that definitely was a fan girl moment for me!

a few days later i was contacted by etsy to write a short story for the blog about how i came up with the idea of making my drawings into tattoos ... when i stopped hyperventilating, i managed to get some words down for them ... here's a link, if you'd like to read it.
i've loved reading through all the kind/funny/sweet messages everyone's left on the blogs and corresponding facebook posts; so i just want to take a moment to say a big fat massive thank you!

♥ thank you! ♥

isn't the internet a wonderful thing!

*the super cute arrows in the pictures above are available for free download here
= i am a little bit in love with them

WIP (woof in progress)

a work in progress shot of a little sausage i'm drawing today, he's going to be friends with mr. pugly in my new dog tattoo packs! i really wanted to get these out sooner but haven't any time to work on them recently :( but if all goes to plan they should be in store in about two weeks ! ... just in time for christmas! 
the multi packs of kitty tattoos are currently sold out at the moment, only a few single ones left at the current price ... but don't worry they will be back in stock very very soon, i promise

oh, hai!

i am still alive incase you were wondering, most of my family came to visit our new flat last week, which was lots and lots of fun ... however not very well timed on my part with work, so i'm playing catch up now!
you may have seen i've had some wonderful press about my kitty tattoos the last couple of weeks, will blog about that soon ♥ if you've bought some recently you will have seen my new packaging, hope you like it!

thought i'd show a sneaky peak of something new that will be coming to the shop very soon! what do you think? these phone cases will be available in a range of designs and for different models - not just the iphone *hooray!*
i will probably be selling them for around £20, i'd love to hear your thoughts on them ...

as i'm a little behind i will be holding off the price increase for another week or so, til i have everything sorted, so make the most of it whilst you can! also don't forget the sale is still on, lots of you have been making the most of the bargains :)
