ELLEN G one year on

Its hard to believe that it's been almost exactly a year since I opened my little week long shop in my lounge and then a pop up shop in Eastbourne for a month. Like a snow ball gaining momentum I had opened my shop in Petone pretty soon after! In case you haven't visited I thought I'd show you some photos of how far I've come, it's been a blast!

Iv'e been meaning to create a dedication to my little part of the world "Wellington"! and here it is, it features two of our most often seen birds: the Black-backed gull and the Pied Shag. These little fellows are firm friends and love to meet for a little chat (I think he want's to be more than just friends, what do you think!) oh yes and that's Pencarrow lighthouse in the background.

ELLEN G shop now open!

After many, many hours of hard work, here it is at last, my very own shop here in New Zealand.
It's been a dream for a very long time!
I am excited, daunted, tired and energised all at the same time!

New Books!

I was about to wish you a very Happy New Year until I remembered that it's already 3 weeks into January! (Happy new Year to you anyway!)
To kick of the year, I am delighted to share with you my two latest books!
"Papercraft Birthday" and "Papercraft Thank You", these complete a 3 part series of greeting card kit books, the first being Papercraft Christmas.
I had such fun illustrating these, as always Templar Publishing are a dream to work with, they give me such amazing freedom, if you would like these simply go to Amazon, all my books are available there at great prices!
