Whether you are putting up bunting, waving a Union Jack flag, having a street party, or just trying your best to avoid anything Royal Wedding, I do know that today perhaps if William had known about my designs he might very well have put in an order for....

Little Wishes

A little while ago I mentioned a new childrens card range I was developing and I can now reveal the finished articles for you. I hope you like them!

I believe the older I get the younger I feel, and so this is reflected in my new illustrations. I have wanted to begin a young ages range since the start of Fay's Studio, as I love using bold colours in my designs and this is the perfect excuse to use a strong colour palette.
1st Birthday for a boy or girl.
A playful 2nd Birthday card.

The Owl And The Pussy Cat.
A bright Birthday owl.

Roar! You're 4.

A happy kitten.
Robot for boys aged 5.

For astronaut wannabes.

Each C6 card comes wrapped in 100% biodegradable packaging matched with a white hammer envelope. Perfect for little wishes!

Please leave your comments below, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Cream Teas and Coastal Breeze.

I was lucky enough last week to have a few days away whilst the weather was gorgeous. My boyfriend and I stayed at a lovely farmhouse in Boscastle, which had an award winning breakfast I might add. Scrambled egg and smoked salmon for breakfast was yummy!
We visited Bude, Port Isaac, Polzeath, Rock, Wadebridge, Padstow and Tintagel. I enjoyed all of the coastal walks we did as you can't beat the fresh sea air. We couldn't have been more fortunate with the weather as I know from experience how rough the coast can be having lived in Falmouth and Bournemouth for 6 years.

On the second day of our holiday we visited Port Isaac, a place that I have wanted to visit for many years. Firstly because I love the Cornish towns and villages that have so much character and a relaxed way of life, and secondly because the filming of ITV's Doc Martin takes place here. We couldn't beieve our eyes when we arrived on the Wednesday morning to find a film crew gathered outside a white house rolling film, and hushing the crowds that had gathered to watch. And to our surprise here is a glimpse of the star of the show. It was very surreal!

Stunning views at Tintagel.

No pasty for you!

A break by the sea always leaves me feeling revived and inspired, so back to work we go, there's lots to do!
