Just adding a visual here, this one's going onto all my social media pages...please feel free to share if you know someone arty ;)
P.S: Don't forget you can subscribe to my newsletter here, or at the bottom of every page, and to my blog via the little box to the right ;)
If you've been reading my blog posts for a while you'll recall last year I put a shout out for artists to collaborate with, using their beautiful drawings, paintings or potentially even photographs along with my cross stitch design skills to create some gorgeous charts & kits.
I've been working with Heidi, of Heidi Made This & I love her work & her quirky style. If you haven't had a chance to do so already go & check out her fabulous greetings cards. The kits created turned out even better than expected & I can't wait to do more with Heidi.
I'm now also in a position where I'd like to broaden my range & this is where you lovely lovely arty types can help *flutters eyelashes optimistically*
Here's the original post, it has more details in, pretty much all of which remain the same. If you think it's something you'd be interested in, whether you just want to do a few pieces or ongoing collaborations I'd love to hear from you & can talk you through how it would all work.
I hope to hear from you soon!

Coo, getting back into the swing of things after a couple of days stuck in bed is always difficult & that was a really horrible few days. Changing pain meds is not the ideal thing to be doing whilst trying to run a business! I shall mostly be working in zombie mode today so forgive me if I seem a bit out of it.
Anyway, more importantly, free stuff! If you've been reading my newsletters you'll know that I'm about to stop making them automatically post to Facebook & Twitter so that subscribers get that little bit extra. This month I'll be doing my first newsletter prize draw, anyone who subscribes to the newsletter AND opens the email will be automatically entered into the draw each month with various different prizes on offer, from cross stitch kits to supplies, embroidered items, clothing and, well, whatever I can think of really! The newsletters will also include subscriber only discounts and pre-sales, so if you've not signed up already, what are you waiting for? Sign up now!
Just because I'm feeling extra generous today, I'll let you in on the secret, the prize for the September draw will be this cross stitch kit, a fab Christmassy kit featuring the artwork of Heidi. I really enjoyed stitching it & I'm sure you will too :)
So, join my mailing list!

Are you an artist or designer by trade or do you just love creating beautiful pieces of art?
Would you like to see your artwork in a different medium?
Would you like more widespread recognition for your work?
If your answer is YES then YOU may be just the person I'm looking for!
(If not then pretty please do me a huge favour & share this with your talented arty friends, I'll love you forever!)
I currently draw all the artwork for my cross stitch kits by myself & this can be very time consuming as well as limiting what I can create - because
a) I'm no artist &
b) the length of my working day is completely dependent on my health day to day.
The idea is that artists could make my process shorter by creating the original artwork so I can focus on creating the patterns, stitching them out, editing & creating the completed counted cross stitch kits.
What do I want?
What's in it for you?
A choice of:
Here are some of the kits I've already made:
Drop me an email or message me using the contact page - a link to some of your work would be fab too ;) Thank you for reading.
