It's been quite a while since I last blogged, so from now until Christmas I'll be trying to catch up on some recent work and news until I'm up to date and ready for the new year.
While I'm on the topic of Christmas, I must mention that if you're thinking of ordering something from my shop or Etsy in time for Christmas you must do so by the following dates:
UK: Friday 14th December.
Europe, USA + Canada: Friday 7th December.
Rest of the world: Wednesday 5th December.
Not long to go, so get your orders in now in plenty of time! :) You can of course order later than the above dates, but I can't guarantee that your goodies will arrive in time for Christmas.
I’ve seen a couple of blog posts lately by artists like Johanna Basford about the importance of taking breaks away from working, as you can often burn the candle at both ends when you work for yourself and not realise until it’s too late. This has certainly been true of my husband, who also runs his own business and has been working amazingly hard lately, so I thought I would throw caution to the wind for once and whisk him off on a break for his birthday. We went to Copenhagen which was beautiful, friendly and colourful (but mighty chilly!). We walked all over the city until our feet hurt, gorged ourselves on Danish pastries, saw the sights, took a day trip to Sweden, and got some much-needed relaxing [and in my case, the odd spot of drawing] done.
I thought I’d share some of the prettiest/weirdest highlights from my photos with you in case they can give you some inspiration and a distraction from this murky weather, as well as a couple of my sketches of some colourful Danish characters.
If you've been following my food-filled life on Instagram you might have seen a few of those already, sorry!
