Happy new year!
I have wanted to start writing a blog for a little while now but it's always been pushed aside for drawing/social media. Now that I am doing this art thing full time (as full time as possible with a one year old!) I brought myself The Makers Year book, it had raving reviews and seemed to be the organisational book/diary I needed in my life. I have spent most evenings addicted to filling it in, making sure I start the new year on the right track and feeling full of motivation!
It's a great book! It breaks down how to run a business into really manageable chunks - I can draw pretty pictures but a being a business woman is an area I tend to struggle, I imagine like most artists out there, being quiet and totally immersed in a drawing is one thing....being a strong headed and driven business person is a totally different ball game.

So for 2020 I have heaps of exciting things planned in this book, I am determined to make them a reality! Today my first list is almost complete and we're only on the first nap time - work time for me! I will keep mentioning this book and let you know how I get on with it throughout the year.
Looking to the next few months there are some super cute pets booked in to be drawn! I will also be working with Halstock Cabinet Makers designing some beautiful carvings and laser cuts!
