ELINtm giveaway update

Just thought I'd update on last month's blog giveaway. Many thanks to Melina for taking these great photos of her prize package arriving. I love this picture of her postbox, we don't have this style in the UK, so it is extra special.

It wasn't till I saw this picture that I got a complete sense of what it means to send my work out to the four corners of the globe. We get feedback on Etsy but there is nothing like getting a good visual sense.

A great shot of my moo card and ELINtm box.

Melina with a happy smile.

Melina has a great Etsy shop, clothes and accessories made with beautiful, subtle hand-screen printed fabrics. Check it out here:-

Lichen wood walk

Well the holiday is over and it's back to work! I got a chance during the break to visit my favourite wood in west Wales. Every available surface is covered in moss and lichens. Quite spooky...I would balk at being there in the dead of night.

Two beautiful lichens caught on camera along the way. The detail on the first is truly breath-taking. Please click on the image :)
My first snap of British soldier lichen.
