I won I won!!!

Hello all! Hope you're having an awesome weekend! Jam's been away watching football (not rugby!) today so I've had chance to do a whole host of online-y things including a load of overdue Etsy shop maintenance (tags, product titles, descriptions etc..) annndd also spend some time on this 'ere blog post. 

If you follow us on twitter and have seen me blabbering on about it you'll know that I won the flipping amazing Story Hands New Years giveaway!! Story Hands is a fantastic collective of illustrators made up of Jenny Robins, June Sees, John Riordan, Natsuki Otani and Martyn Warren. I actually met Jenny back in 2010 when my friend Anna (now Anna's Drawing Room) and I worked together under the name Two Magpies and organised exhibitions in Windsor (and one in Brighton). Jenny was part of our first ever show that we put on and painted her amazing owl series 'WHO WHAT WHERE WHEN WHY HOW' for that exhibition which you can see in postcard form in my prizes below! You can read the review of the exhibition Jenny wrote for Amelia's Magazine here (and see a really dorky photo of me and Anna!)

But yes! On to my incredible prizes!!!!

Basically my tweet stating my New Year's resolution (to hold a barn owl and conquer my sewing machine phobia) was picked at random meaning that I won a whole load of goodies from the Story Hands artists including my New Year's resolution illustrated by Jenny...


Isn't it beautiful?! As if that wasn't enough check out the rest of my loot...
A3 Bond Skyfall poster illustrated by June it!! Skyfall is my favourite!
