A little redesign

I've done a bit of a redesign of the Anna Laura website. As you can probably tell I've scaled back to focus on our Able and Game cards, but I will still be doing the little lady badges. They are also featured in the current Frankie Mag which is pretty exciting (thanks Frankie!). They are also available on the lovely website Leeloo which is also the only place you can buy them.

Once Upon Artworks

The Tears

The Spin

The Queen

The First Born

I've finally found the time to put my four artworks from Once Upon up on the blog. My fairy tail was Rumpelstiltskin and I have to say I had a few dilemmas with the whole thing but ended up pushing through to create something I was happy with. This was a bit of a novelty, because all to often I just procrastinate then rush something and end up a bit disappointed in what I create.

The artworks are hand stitched collages created with thread and a variety of papers. I originally planned to not have too much on them, but when I started on the the last one I got a bit carried away with all the detail causing me to go and add more detail to all of them and miss the deadline for posting them off.

Gareth and I flew up for the exhibition opening and it was (embarrassingly) my first trip to Sydney, so things like double decker trains were a total novelty. We hung with Jess from Truth Be Told and met lots of lovely people and drunk the great wine supplied by Catalina Sounds.

If you're wanting to buy some of the artworks, just go to the Once Upon website and click the Art For Sale link at the top. And lastly, a big thanks to Renee and Angela for organising the whole shebang!
