hey folks, hope you've had a nice Saturday so far, i spent the day cooped up inside watching old movies and relaxing, it's been utterly blissful!
i decided it was about time for another Creative Café post so get you tea/coffee/cocoa ready, grab some biscuits or some cake and settle down for some creative loveliness
today's post is all about a wonderful local artist here in the Isle of Man, it's all about Karen Tomlinson aka Purplecatscorner
i first discovered Karen's work in about February or April last year, her whimsical, girly style of painting just appealed to me straightaway and then last August i won a little giveaway on her blog
her work is always very sweet, pretty and wonderfully coloured, her delicately painted girls and fairies are just so lovely you can't help but like them!
here's a bunch of some of her gorgeous paintings which are all available as prints via her etsy shop
Karen also creates pretty little bottle top necklaces featuring her work, i have one and it's the perfect accessory to brighten up an otherwise gloomy day
she also makes lovely printed tote bags, pretty bookmarks, greetings cards and fridge magnets
and recently she also started making these lovely fabric hearts
ah everything she creates is so pretty, i just love it all!
here's a photo of all of the lovely Purplecatscorner stuff that i personally own. . .
i won most of this in the giveaway last summer, in fact. . .
