five days left ...

i got my super cute cat tee in the post yesterday ... i love it!
i opted for the slim fit american apparel in medium, i'm happy to say it fits perfectly, and is soo soft! *hint* size up on the slim fit tees and if you're from the uk choose the us store option :)

i donated the drawing to catteemission as part of their artist exchange. it's only available during the month of march. all the proceeds go to cat charities around the world! you can find out more here, and if you would like your kitty artwork on a tee get in touch with sarah to make it happen!

anyway, if you were wanting to get your hands on one of my kitty t shirts, you only have 5 days left! go go go!!

meow for now ^-.-^

motel rocks

so i decided to enter the motel rocks competition, at the very last second (in true harriet gray style) !
i started drawing this girl's girl's face a while ago, just for fun. i had no real plans for her, so i put her in a drawer and forgot about her.

turns out, all that time she was waiting for a pretty motel dress and some uber cool tatts. hoorah!

bunny lovin'

after a very lovely week off i'm having a nice productive first day back! sometimes it's good to have a little break, to clear your mind and refocus.
i've been drawing some bunnies this afternoon, which is always fun!

you may have heard the news that google reader/gfc is closing, i decided to transfer my blog reading list over to bloglovin' as they offer a transfer tool which makes the process fairly quick and painless! instructions can be found here 

... and if you don't already, you can follow me on bloglovin' ♥

i've started drawing a few gems for a little project i'm working on at the moment, i'm thinking they might make a nice set of tattoos! we shall see

just wanted to let you all know (and make you all a little jealous) that i'm off on holiday!
i'll be leaving my shop open, but any orders placed or emails sent to me whilst i'm away will be dealt with when i'm back on 16th march.
i will be taking my iphone, obviously, so no doubt you will still hear from me on twitter and instagram ...@harriet gray on both those if you'd like to follow me!

last saturday i ventured up to cambridge and had lots of fun at the #camblogmeet! (i say saturday, that is  kind of a lie. my journey actually started friday evening ... i obviously haven't gotten used to the fact that i live on an island, it didn't occur to me to think how i'd get to southampton train station on saturday morning to meet with my new pals rachel and laura, until a few days before the event. after studying the bus and ferry timetables i realised i would have had to leave my flat at 05.50am!! ... ummm. no thanks. luckily rachel was kind enough to let me stay over the night before, otherwise i would have had to have slept on the table whilst everyone opened their goodie bags... the goodie bags! ahhmaagaa! more on those shortly)

Good things come to those who wait ...

you may remember i held a giveaway recently, which i was meant to pick a winner for on friday. i'd been surprisingly organised with keeping track of the entries, and on saturday morning i even collated all the names into a numbered list on excel ... then, somehow, i totally forgot to pick a winner!! silly harriet. blame my excitement about #camblogmeet! (i will blog about that soon!)

i'd like to say a *massive* thank you to everyone who entered my little giveaway, all your wonderful comments and tweets made me smile ... and i have to say, i was quite shocked by the total number of entries!  since so many of you entered and you're all so lovely, i thought i would also pick five runner ups, who will win themselves a couple of cattoos and postcards. hooray!

as you can see, i used the good old random number generator to pick out the names and the runner up winners are :
181 - jessica gowling 
179 - rebecca abell
177 - isobel kho
25 - wake up land
10 - alice gibbs

and the lucky winner of the main prize is :
195 - meg casson

big fat congrats to you all! i will be in touch to find out where to send your prizes ... hooray!
