Off to New Zealand!

Woo hoo, very excited, as we are off to New Zealand, leaving tomorrow, and away for almost a month. I have plans to fill lots of sketchbooks, but the main reason for going over is to for my youngest son, Sam's wedding to Elle. It is sure to be a wedding with a difference, as it will be in Auckland Zoo!
I am planning to try and update my blog at least, by using Sam's computer, so look out for photos and news!
Here is a nice picture anyway of one of my newest prints.
See you all in April!

Spring Fair Birmingham this year - quite apprehensive about the economic climate, but even after the arctic conditions, it turned out to be pretty much on a par with last years, in terms of sales. Footfall was definitely down, with no visitors from the south of England due to heavy snowfall, but the serious buyers made it all worthwhile.
So, it was hard (and I was in a campervan!), it was an anxious time, and we all wondered about re-booking for next years show....but I picked up some very nice licensing deals, a few more galleries to add to my list, and a determination to keep up better with the ones I already had.
I feel revitalised.
