A tale from my writing desk... A Twist in the Tale
...Once upon a time there was a girl who was so busy she didn't know what to do! She spent a lot of time writing lovely stories for her Blog, but not enough time on her paintings or running her business that was about to launch! She also had a gorgeous little boy to look after and missed sewing and reading enthralling books! So she called on her fairy godmother who waved her Golden wand in the air and said" Why don't we just sprinkle a little magic on your blog and change it a little bit, make it more exciting and include all your talented art and craft friends?" And she said " wow, what a great idea!!!"...
So the Butterfly Collector is about to change it's mantra a little bit! There will still be some lovely little stories and my paint brush twirling and pencil scribbling feats will still be displayed regularly. And now a Drum roll please.... I will also be including some great articles on how to promote,market and present your art or craft. And showcasing some of the fabulous fashion, decor, jewellery, art, people, books and handcrafted wonderfulness that I continually find and only ever tell my sister about and will now bring to share with my blog friends!
And pictured above is the first one! Tea for Two by the fabulous and incredibly talented Emily Martin, otherwise known as The Black Apple. Emily loves to draw lovely girls with gorgeous names like Enid and Isobel complete with alice bands and stripey knee high socks, is known for her Hedgies ( hedgehogs in fun poses!) and has wonderful art prints ( including the one above), paper doll kits and handsewn toys in her shop. She is a full time artist and lives in the Big Apple, New York where she goes on wonderful shopping adventures!
