cool and calm

There is a sense of Mother Nature exhaling a long sigh of relief here in the Highlands...the hard work of growth and harvest is over and the dry summer has contributed to one of the most glorious displays of autumnal colours I can remember. The skeins of migrating geese utter their harsh yet beguiling calls overhead - come follow with us to see new lands! It is always one of my favourite times of year.

It's also a good time to do more indoors, as the days shorten in the Northern Hemisphere, and I have new tools to help keep you occupied and creatively engaged!

There are FOUR NEW DOUBLE CUTTER SETS in the Tools shop HERE and matching 'mirror' sets for the previous four asymmetric designs, so if you already have one shape, you can now buy the matching 'other' to make a pair, increasing their versatility.

I am also putting the final touches to four new Texture Stamps which will launch in November - a series I have called "Planet Earth" (in homage to glorious David Attenborough!). The four designs are drawings I've made, inspired by areas of our beautiful world which are under threat. I felt compelled to do something to highlight the problems and contribute to helping solve them, in my own small way, so a percentage of profits from sales of these stamps will go to various eco charities. More details soon!
