Until we meet again!

After nine and a half years of running my business the time has come to wrap it up! Back in 2008 when I set up my business I wouldn't have for a moment dreamed of how much I would enjoy being my own boss! It came at a perfect time, when I needed something to concentrate on - something to get my creative juices flowing and sharpen my skills.

I have had some real highs and some real lows but it's been worth every minute!

I have been very lucky to have some loyal customers who I have created portraits for on a yearly basis and watched their children grow with every new photo they send me to work with.

I am not sure if this is a 'forever' goodbye or if one day I will want to relaunch - no one can predict what the future holds but the beauty of this is I know I will continue to have ideas which one day I may find the time to develop.

I would like to wish all my customers all the very best and hope you all know how much I have appreciated your business.

I would also like to thank all the lovely work at home Mums who helped advise and support me in the early days - there is a fantastic network of support out there for anyone looking to set up their own business and it's been an invaluable resource for me these past 9 years! I was a member of a number of different 'Mumpreneur' networks and websites and really appreciated all of them!

Lots of Love

It's been a while since I last updated my blog! This year seems to be going so quickly. I can't believe my children are back at school/nursery already after thier seven week Summer holiday! Unfortunately the weather didn't seem to agree and it was a pretty dull seven weeks. Lots of crafts, baking and films helped keep them occupied but we missed those long Summer days enjoying BBQs and the paddling pool.

My daughter spent a lot of the Summer sitting at the kitchen table surrounded by pencils and paper, drawing. She is very creative and really loves anything arty. I want to share this lovely picture she drew me among many others.

I love it - she has such a fantastic imagination and this got me thinking! I have decided to run an Enhance-Me COMPETITION....

All you need to do is get your child/children to create a picture of themselves in a 'magical scene' - where would they most like to be?...Would they like to be in a fairy garden surrounded by butterflies and fairies? Perhaps they would like to go on a bug safari and ride on a dragonfly! Or do they love dinosaurs? Perhaps they would love to be on stage with thier favourite pop star! They can use anything they want, pens, pencils, paint, collage!

The Prize: A magical portrait created in the same theme as your childs creation and a 16"x12" poster print. 

How To Enter: There are two ways you can enter - you can either photograph or scan the picture your child has created and:

A) Email it to


B) Upload it to my FaceBook page: 

Please remember to include your childs name, age and description of what they have created!

I am really looking forward to seeing all the fab creations!

Easter Competition WINNER

Happy Good Friday everyone!

So the competiton is now closed and I am posting here to announce the winner. I had a couple of options when I decided to run this competition - make it simple and whoever posted the correct guess first would win or make it so difficult that people would just have to guess! I went for the former but never thought for a moment that the second entry would guess correctly!! (oops!)

I decided to then mix things up a little to make it fairer and do a draw between all those who did guess correctly and it returned the same winner so it was meant to be!!

So a HUGE well done to the winner, who correctly guessed 47 eggs 'Emma Sealey' You have won a portrait in a theme of your choice and an 8x10 print of your portrait. I am looking forward to creating something for you.

Thank you everyone for your entries and keep your eyes open for more competitions and special offers in the future. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!
