Haslemere Co-Lab have launched a new section to their website - local businesses and enterprises. Before Christmas, I worked with the team on the branding for their Virtual High Street - Haslemere, This is Haslemere and Haslemere Co-Lab. PM Getting it Done created this website about all things Haslemere. Have a read of my blog post about Branding and PM Getting It Done give you suggestions on what to consider when creating your website.

WBJ Designs got in touch for an update to his logo for his Web Design company. We have developed the logo using a similar colour palette

I created this website for Willowtwisters, a couple of years ago, and have just updated it into a more advanced web builder within Wordpress Elementor. Hanna and Sara edit the content of their site themselves, so it is important that this process is as smooth as possible. The site is fully responsive (this is the Tablet version with the burger menu) and Elementor allows you to control what appears on different devices. It is great, for me, to be able to create the best web design solutions for my clients, without any coding

My baking has been described as “rustic but tastes nice” - luckily my book cover design is more successful! @harrietalicecakedesign makes the most beautiful cakes, that taste amazing, and she is sharing her wisdom in her new book “The Sugarcraft Dictionary”. It is available on Amazon.

Creating makes me happy 😊 . Whether it is designing a logo or needle felting a Sprout, I’m happy. Coming up with concepts in my trusty sketchbook, developing them with the client or, for the craft, running it past my son (he is brutally honest!) through to holding the final item or clicking through a finished website.

What makes you happy?

I have just added these Handmade Felt Christmas Pudding Decorations and Craft Kits to my Etsy site. Very limited edition

I have been working with the Haslemere Co-Lab to create this logo for their Virtual High Street initiative. Created for local small businesses to promote themselves and for local people to connect with these businesses

I’ve been updating my website with all the rebranding for @hogmoordistillery. Each bottle label design includes my illustrations of the botanicals included in each drink.

Too beautiful to open. I don’t want to break that seal! Thank you @hogmoordistillery 😍🍸 I love your new branding.

Talking about Hogmoor Distillery, their gin and the rebrand I have been working on.

Live Unboxing - Hogmoor Distillery (one of our party distillers!)

Very excited to be revealing the new labels for Hogmoor Distillery soon. You can guess the label and win a miniature (although if I’ve told you, you’re in the inner circle and therefore sworn to secrecy!)

We have a WINNER Brian Haite correctly guessed its HONEY & FIG
We are very excited here at Hogmoor Distillery to announce we are having a rebrand of our labels, still designed by the wonderful Caroline from My Teal Giraffe, here’s a little section of the label, who can guess what we are distilling, we are branching out soon as well, our spiced rum is nearly aged, vodka liqueur is sitting in the churn soaking up the flavours.A miniature bottle to the first person who guesses correctly the next drink and it’s flavour? (We will expand the photo every few days, so keep guessing)

I thought I’d pop my head up and say hello, as it’s been a while 👋 . Homeschooling, School holidays, Graphic Design freelance work and preparing to move house are keeping me busy, so I’m on a bit of a break from making new things to sell. My Etsy shop is still stocked and open (link in bio) but it’ll be a little while until new ideas can be realised (they’re in my head though). I’m still doing creative things, such as these birds for @ginamcartist with the kids but it’s going to be mainly child based crafts for a while. I still enjoy following all the wonderful things made by all you clever makers and will join you again soon (in my new Craft room 🤞)
