Penguins Everywhere!

Who can resist a cute penguin, skating and sliding its way down a snowy hillside? 

I can't! So I made a hand-painted paper collage penguin and then I gave him a companion for a double dose of cuteness! 

At first they just appeared on Christmas cards -



 . . . and postage stamps

- but then I added them to a range of gifts that will delight anyone with a liking for these endearing creatures:

Just a few of the Skating Penguin t-shirt and hoodie options available

You can change the text on this Penguin Notebook
 to whatever you wish!

All Wrapped up for Christmas - 11 Festive Giftwraps

I must admit that wrapping presents isn't something I enjoy. I never seem to have enough hands!

But once it's all done and the parcels are either under the Christmas Tree or waiting to go to the Post Office, it's a very satisfying feeling.

So here we have a selection of Gift-wraps and I hope there's something to suit everyone:

These Text-based patterns say,
"Do not open until 25th December"

The Poinsettia Wrapping Paper
 is also available in three background colours.

This Christmas Candles and Holly Pattern
comes in three colour-ways too.

And for the ultimate in chic coordination,
here's the 
Wrapping Paper
to match my
Carol-singing Mice
Christmas Card

(This is the Cute Mice card that can be personalized on the front cover as well as inside. But there are plenty of other options, including Non-English greetings, in my Zazzle store:

Merry Christmas Wrapping!

16 Gifts from my 'Islamic' Collection

The reason that we associate most Islamic design with beautifully intricate geometric shapes is because it is based on the 2nd Commandment given to Moses: 

"You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them". The 2nd Commandment; Exodus 20:4-6

Within those confines, the Islamic patterns based on circles, squares and polygons, often overlapping, have been developed into an extraordinarily varied and often breath-taking art-form that has always fascinated me as a pattern-maker! The designs in my 'Islamic' collection are all based on an authentic Islamic geometric pattern, to which I added the colour and they range from the bright and funky to the cool and classy!

Whether it's gifts for the home, fashion accessories or cases and sleeves to protect your electronic devices, you'll find plenty to choose from in my Posh & Painterly 'Islamic' collection - and most of them are equally suitable for 'him' or for 'her'.

Here are just a few of them -
