Inspiration sunday

I have so much going on in my head right now, work, screen printing, bust magazine christmas fair ....oh the amount of stuff is endless i wrote this post about two days ago but my internet has been a useless sausage.

so i thought i would have a wee bit of a chillout time, and i discovered the most wonderful little  inspirational blog filled with cute handmade things, its called Penguin & Fish and it is wonderful, it has tonnes of featured work by creative people. Alyssa Thomas is the creator behind Penguin & Fish her blog is wonderful and so is her embroidery :) you can buy patterns to create your very own little embroidered creations....

She also creates wonderful  illustrations of birds, butterflies and
