New stuff on the way.
I've got:

  • Napkins
  • Placemats
  • Table runners
  • Bags (all sorts of bags - long handle, short handle, wooden handle, linen, cotton, drawstring, laundry)
  • Pillowcases (square, rectangle)
  • Coin tidy
I'm not sure if I'll be able to print on all of these items, but, I'm excited anyway. I'm thinking of getting more toddler/baby tees to print on. I was considering getting ladies tees/tops to print on, but I think it'll get really complicated what with sizes and all. I'm still working on producing more prints and items and also on taking better shots of my products. What do you think of the photos I've taken so far? Ben being a photographer seems to think they aren't good enough for a website. The thing is, I don't want the blog to look like a website. It's my personal space where I share things with You, the one reading it and looking at it. In a sense, I want my photographs to give you a little insight into my home, my prints. If all this is making sense, good. If not, tell me what you'd like to see on here, what you'd like me to do better/change.

I like reading other people's blog. Lots of artists, printers,crafters etc have blogs not just showing you what they've done, but what people who inspire them have done, things that inspire them etc - like an art blogazine. There are lots of these blogs out there, but I'm not going to head down that road. I don't know many people. Not many people inspire me. Ben's mum is one person who does (
just to name one) - she's the person I turn to for opinions - she gives them to me straight and I need that. I take some, and leave some behind and she's fine with that. Looking at trees and flowers and pictures of nature inspires me. Looking at children's books with Jill inspires me. Going to nice places, looking at nice things especially nice old houses inspires me. Even better if I get to look in. Old things inspire me. I LOVE buying vintage/antique things. I like being influenced.

Today I made a wreath out of the hops growing on our rose arch. Inspiration for my next print? ;)


  1. I am inspired by things around me all the time. I love the wreath, it embodies nature in all its simplicity and color. Kiran, have you considered pricing your items for your site here, or are you still working out the details. My favorites so far are the toddler tees, the apron and bag. great work Kiran!

  2. I'm still working out details and I'm hoping to get a site up and running by mid/end October - with a store opening discount and freebies! Just need to sort stuff out, but soon!! :))
