New Smith Corona Typewriter

Before our big move I made a different Smith-Corona typewriter. For some reason I've always steered clear of using purple. It wasn't a dislike of the colour, more a fear of it for some strange reason. I'm really glad I did it, I love how the colour turned out, you can call me cured!

It's been far too long since I've updated this blog. I blame a broken scanner and buying my first home with my boyfriend Spencer. I'm also insanely busy working on a really large piece that I'll be letting you know more about later. 

Back in February the lovely Michelle SaintOnge (who you may have seen on Martha!) interviewed me for her website printcutsew. If you're interested in screen printing she has some amazing tutorials including how to build your own screens on her site. My interview is here.
You can also check out a tutorial I made to create a monster brooch.

Michelle also has a great interview with Roisin Fagan of Bespoke Uprising with lots of tips for any of you interested in selling your work at large craft fairs.
