So, it's only the start of November, and I hate to mention the C word, but things are definitely gearing up for Christmas! Holey moley.
First off, I'm very excited about the special Christmas themed product I've been working on. It's not actually close enough to the festive season for me to feel ready to disclose any more details just yet, but I've pencilled in a release date of the week of 14th Nov, so you'll find out real soon! In addition, since way back in March, or maybe April, ages ago anyway, I've been working in collaboration with the folk behind PostCarden to design a lovely new product, which is due to hit the shops very soon. Again, I should have more details of this to release really soon - but I can definitely say that I'm really delighted with the way the product is looking, and it's got more than a few admiring glances from visitors to the workshop.
On yet another Christmassy note, I was pleased to find out that I've got a space at the Made in the Shade Holiday Hullabaloo, Sat 10 Dec at the Lighthouse. I know that the girls will have chosen an awesome selection of designer-makers who will, no doubt, have their best wares on offer. I know where I'll be getting my xmas shopping done!
Finally, and I know I've mentioned him before, but I've been admiring the work of Alan Wolfson - this guy has been making his miniature urban sculptures since before I was born, and still going strong. Inspiring stuff.
