Fishink Cats and Dogs in a Christmas Bazaar in Sale, Manchester on 28th November.
Welcome to my weekly post, and I want to start by saying a big vote of thanks to everyone who left me a comment, a ‘like’ or a warm thought after my 1000th post. The response was very much appreciated and your comments made great reading. Ironically there were nearly 1000 page visits that day too ! Hurrah.
Apologies for being soo British but the weather this week has been dreadful. Autumnal, wet ‘n’ windy, in true November style. We have been truly soaked so often, that the dog is starting to worry about going outside for fear of drowning lol. I caught this lovely image of dad and son passing my window, which did make me smile.
I’m taking part in a Christmas Fair organised by the Sale Arts Trail team, that is on, in Sale, this Saturday (28th November). For those of you who are local, you can find it here (Map) at The Manchester Life Centre, 235 Washway Rd, Sale, Manchester, M33 4BP between 10am and 5pm. There’s a great cafe and free entry too.
I will be showing some new work (featured below) alongside around 30 other designer-makers, selling jewellery, ceramics, glassware, artwork, illustration, knitwear, willow, photography and much more! So do come along and say hello.
These framed illustrations below, range in price from £40 (for a 10×8 inch frame) to £50 (for a 10×12 inch frame) and are all unique work, hand drawn and collaged by myself. I can make items for commissions too if you have something else in mind, contact me to discuss. firstname.lastname@example.org More options available on the Fishink Website for some great quirky Christmas gifts.
I rather enjoyed making these chirpy cats and dogs, what do you think ?
Birds and trees are still popular requests in my work. The Fox illustration was inspired by the Autumnal weather we’ve been having lately, here in the UK, with leaves blowing everywhere.
I am also selling Christmas cards, which are also hand printed and collaged. They are £10 for a pack of 10 (plus P&P) so do let me know if you would like to place an order.
For those of you who have asked me, I’ll have some more of the popular hand-made stamps with me too, just £5 each.
Hope to catch up with you on Saturday, do stop by and say hello. Have a great week everyone, stay dry… drip dry! and don’t forget to comment and share my blog. Thank you and after getting to the top ten last year, I’ve just entered the UK Blog awards for the 2016. Watch this space as I’ll be asking for you to vote for my blog again in the next month or two…. exciting times ahead readers : )
