JJ has inspired Martin to get back into drawing, and start a comic.  The concept derives from the many outfits of what JJ wears each day.  It’s still in the making but we would love to get your ideas of costumes that we can use!  Challenge Martin to draw JJ as any character, and if we like it, we will use it!

Here is a few samples so far of JJ’s day as himself and some superheroes…and just totally loving them.  Please get commenting!

Support and Follow Love UK Handmade

loveuk handmadeA gem I found online is the feed Love UK Handmade via Instagram that started a week ago. The concept is to support UK designers and small businesses by publishing their work, easily accessible to anyone.  Love UK Handmade started due to the dreams of an individual who understood the needs for businesses to have a presence in social media.  The collection of artists is handpicked of those that have products of high quality and uniqueness, some even being located in Harrods and notonthehighstreet.com.

The fresh use of colour and cool designs are distinctive features of Love UK Handmade feeds, all with an artistic photo displaying the crafts.  The personal touch added to this page, is the themed days; such as Doodle Day and Friends Friday, an absolutely great method to select items for the day.

In the next 3 months I have a minimum of 10 birthday presents I need to consider, not forgetting the finishing touches of the nursery being designed for Bump Lentil due in April.  Oh, and the fact that I just want to spoil Bump Lentil. As Love UK Handmade rightly says “It’s a tease on the purse seeing all the things I see”.

So let’s create my shopping list excitedly:

  • I could not resist something for myself as our one is currently plain and boring.  The Jones Family personalised doormat, designed and engraved in Nottinghamshire by     @lasermadedesigns

Oh my – I could really go crazy and want more. The ease of finding gifts for the people I love was made easy with this page. I admire each item selected as each one is made with simplicity, love, fun and a story.  I feel that Love UK Handmade has a great idea to promote the creativeness of individuals and small businesses and we should all support it!
