Two Festive Birds.

A stocking filler. A gift for a loved one. A gift for yourself. These two new festive inspired designs have just arrived over in my shop, so pick one (or two) up in time for Christmas. And just like a dog, they are not just for Christmas, but can be enjoyed throughout the year!

Pa Rum Pum Pum Pum!

It appears that Christmas is just around the corner, which must surely mean trying to come up with an original and fresh idea to put on a card. Here is what fell out of my brain and onto said card!

What a difference a week makes!

Tenderfoot is up and running! After all the hard work by the lovely ladies Lori and Helen, our little pocket of Bristol finely has a shop we can all be proud of. The sign also finally got finished on Friday, the day before the grand opening! After a terrible day on Thursday where my printer wouldn't print, the paint wouldn't paint and the ladder wouldn't reach, I finally resorted to my old friend, the jigsaw and plywood. I think in the end it created a much stronger sign, and hopefully one that does this emporium of goodies proud.

Coming Soon......

What you see before you is Number 100, Wick Road, Brislington, Bristol, and is just around the corner from my house. It is in the stages of having a loving restoration by my good friend Lori and her business partner Helen, and will soon be newly christened Tenderfoot. It will be the cultural hotspot of our little corner of Bristol with past highlights being a bakery that doesn't actually bake its own bread and a veg shop that mainly sold crisps and sweets! On sale will be gifts and crafts and plenty of interesting workshops. Take a look at the blog to see what they have been up to, or come to the grand opening on November 13th and show your support for this wonderful venture. Oh, and I will be painting the signs on Monday!

Dia de los Muertos.

Tomorrow sees Mexico celebrating 'Dia de los Muertos,' or The Day of the Dead, so here is a little slice of Mexico inspired luchador wrestling madness. Newly laser-cut plywood, four fresh layers of rich colour and a topping of varnish all wrapped up in its own box. There are 23 of these limited edition dead wrestlers, so pick one up here while they are still hot!
