Madame Fi - the Beginning

Geordie Gifts Madame Fi
 The Geordie Gifts Co

I've been moonlighting this week as my lovely friend who is an author asked me to illustrate her new book which is called Madame Fi.  Its not for the faint hearted as its along the 50 shades of grey route.  But its already been purchased ALL over the world on Amazon downloads and now in paperback.  I loved doing this work as its such a departure for me and its amazing that so many copies have already been purchased.

Dusty Doo Dah

Geordie Gifts and Cards4 Geordies

Yesterday was my lovely friend Fe's birthday. We both have kids and dogs and we walk our dogs together most days during school time and put the world to rights.  Fe's dog is called Dusty and is a black and tan Jack Russell - she is the girlfriend of my dog Chops (a border collie).  We talk in dog voices when we talk about the dogs can can't seem to talk in normal voices! "DUSTY LUV CHOPSY LANG TYME" - ok I'll go now.....

Back to work

Geordie Gifts and Cards for Geordies
Can't believe I was actually moaning whilst on holiday that it was too hot and I wanted to be back at home. I felt constantly sweaty and tired now I'm sitting at my desk and my feet are bloody freezing!
The great news is that I've come back to having broadband and a phone line after not having any for a week before I went away.  God knows how we used to survive without it as I didn't realise everything I seem to do revolves around it.  Having no broadband did mean I could get LOADS of design work done - stuff thats been on a list forever but because there was no urgency I hadn't done it.  Here's a new Geordie design for retirement - I LOVE THIS DESIGN - I've been desperate to wedge in the words YUH LUCKY NOWT somewhere.
