Pregnancy Diary: Third Trimester

33 weeks Week 30 – 35 It’s weird because as soon as you move into the third trimester you think you’re pretty much there, when in reality you still have another 10 weeks to go. I’m definitely still feeling like things are dragging, probably partly because I’m still not feeling great physically. My pelvis has…

spring clean

Well once again, 6 months on I’m re-designing The Lovely Drawer again. It’s turning out to be a bi-annual occasion, although not intentionally. This time I can conveniently blame it on the season and call it a ‘Spring clean’. The good and bad thing about being a designer is your style is constantly evolving as…

stationery geek

Stop and take a moment to admire all this lovely stationery from Le Petite Papeterie Francais. I wouldn’t know what to buy first! The bold colours paired with kraft and recycled paper make them super yummy. If only I had more of a need for mountains of stationery! Check out the online shop here.

happy easter

It’s Easter! This may well disappoint but this isn’t a post filled with eggs, bunnies, chocolate, fluffy chicks or a mixture of the above. This is a canvas that I designed that hangs on our wall all year round to remind us that Jesus has risen! We remember this at Easter but really we can…

two little words

Receiving a little thank you card the other day reminded me just how nice it is to get one. Here’s a pack of thank you cards I made on request for a friend. Somehow I keep on being drawn back to my ink pot at the moment. I used to be a little ink crazy…

hello shepherd’s bush

If you’ve read my blog for a little while then you might well remember this post, written just before moving to London to set out on a bit of an adventure. God very obviously guided Nick and I to Shepherd’s Bush to be a part of Trinity West Church. Reuben and Louisa Hunter, started the church from…

spring colour inspiration

watch / DIY mouse mat / regret nothing print / kitchen / London photograph / iphone case / bonjour amour print / single bead necklace It’s mildly amusing that I’m posting this on such a dull and dreary day. It seems a very long way from spring, not helped by the blizzards earlier this week! Nevertheless this fresh colour combination might put a ‘spring’ in your step…

you, me, geometry

Here’s a simple DIY idea for yourself or even better, a gift. When I think fridge magnets, I usually think ‘tacky’ but these should add some colour and life to your fridge or notice board without the tat. All you need is… For the gold areas I used my gold metallic paint as a base…

woodland love

This project has been quite the lingerer. Back in September I realised I was becoming far too pally with my computer and losing touch with the art of drawing. Most things I produce at work or in my own time, start as drawings or have an element of handwork but it felt like too long…
