I collaborated with Jenn Smith from UpperTiny on some Holiday cards this year. It was a wonderful thing. My email inbox was filled with colour as our project evolved - and turns out my real life mailbox got blessed with tiny little lightning bolts (lookit the tiny little lightning bolts!) to boot. This snail mail wins at the prettiest letter of the year contest. Thank you Jenn and Oliver!
Earlier this year I designed some wedding stationery for a couple who got married in the Yorkshire Dales. They were lovely to work with. Here are some quick photos of the menus, thank-you cards, seating chart and placecards I created. I also did a sign that said 'please sign our guestbook' but I forgot to photo it!
You can see more of my wedding invitation/stationery designs on my website.
Meet the newest pack of scoundrels that have been yapping at my heels since September. They're a trouble-making bunch of misfits, guaranteed to dribble and bark, steal your snacks and stink out your car.
There's a group of 31 of them and they're here, invading my studio and living room and looking for homes, bones and lots of attention.
Each of these hoodlums can be identified by an ID number printed on their fabric label. Each numbered Czech Dog, 1-31, is unique in size, colour and stinkiness. Each Czech Dog also comes with a special DOG TAG certificate for you to fill out, and most importantly with a space for you to choose a name once you adopt your czech dog.
Czech Dogs are handmade by ME, Nicola Rowlands. The front fabric is a high quality heavyweight twill, and every pillow is stuffed with poly stuffing and backed with a royal blue cotton fabric.
Once you adopt a Czech Dog, get ready to welcome this stinky scoundrel into your home. I think you'll probably need to adopt a few, so they can be up-to-no-good together. They like to lurk around in packs.
