Parcels and Princesses ★

so today I had a lovely day at college! It was my turn to provide the music for the class so we spent the afternoon listening to all sorts of stuff from the 40's and 50's which was a-ok with me! + we oh so briefly got granted wi-fi access today, my macbook was the tester but the wi-fi only lasted about 10 minutes before vanishing again! fingers crossed they get it sorted... soon!

Anyway today I have some new artwork to share with you all!

I've been busy the past few days working on these little designs for college featuring princesses.

Now i'm not entirely sure what they're for or where they're going but I did them anyway!

There are 4 finished (are they?! I'm not sure) Princess Tiles altogether... so far



supposedly they're each based on an old Fairytale Princess,

there's... Sleeping Beauty


Snow White


Rapunzel


and Cinderella... although why this one is 'Cinderella' i'm not entirely sure! She's either Cinderella or the Princess and the Pea, or maybe Thumbelina... who knows! If anyone can think of a more suitable title for her... let me know!




























oh and in case you were wondering, their unusual colour schemes come from a set of felt circles my mum got me, i intend to sew into them a bit so i guess the plan is for the embroidery pieces to link with these tiles!

in other news...

a big parcel from asos arrived for me today!



last year a client paid me with an asos voucher that i've been slowly but surely spending since then! i bought a dress with the voucher way back in February (obviously that's not me in the pic... but trust me, it looks much better on the model)



and this time i bought 2 more pretty dresses...



a cute little skin care gift-set
and a pair of adorable Cath Kidston earrings!

i just luuuuuurve getting parcels though! no matter what they're for!
