It's TOASTie in here!

Everything is taking twice as long as normal so far this year. I had a strict diary/timetable planned for January and according to that I am 2/3 weeks behind, which is why I haven't been around much. You see, these blogs take me far too long, I haven't quite cracked it yet....I am also the worst person for getting distracted, and finding distractions! I can spend hours every night reading blogs, leaving comments and writing emails and something will have to change. Though I love it so my work load is suffering. I have new work coming in daily and I am way behind. Also, I am really excited that I am in talks about illustrating a childrens book and the time I am spending on this every night I need to start working on that. So for a while i will just be posting on a Wednesday, it will be a big one but just now I can only afford to spend one evening a week on it. I just need to get my head down for a bit .


I will leave you today with a few things I love this week!









Elly Wall ceramics







The colour combination in this print by Atelier Lzc (I pretty much love everything they do.)






This print by Beci orpin is on my wish wish wish list (I secretly think I am getting it for my birthday)


Wallpaper, I wish I knew where I found this I have just written "wood paper" in my notes?!?



and the wonderful world of Julie Morstad.


and finally the Toast sale, It is quite unbelievable!!!!
Goodnight, I'll be back soon xxx
