It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Hello all you lovely peeps!

Just a quick post today to feature an absolutely gorgeous journal created by the Paper Pixie using my Printable Retro Christmas journal which if you fancy having a go at one yourself (still time!) you can find the link to it here on my Etsy shop.. pink ink pixie...

Anyway, that is all today, I must rush and tidy up as our joiner has just left and we are in a mess. Christmas was creeping up on us, but now it is lunging!  I am not organised at all.. oh well, I tell a lie, I have got a Christmas cake made, gravy, stuffing, cranberry jelly, bread sauce, cauliflower cheese and little tarts tucked away in the freezer, so maybe I am not doing that bad! Are you all organised yet?

Bye for now.. Suzie xx

Fresh on my shop today! Printable journal pages..

Hello again! 

Who else besides me loves a good journal?  I love them, and I also enjoy making them too.. journals, junk journals, cute little books! But aren't the supplies so silly expensive, if you go to a craft shop..if you can find one that is, and look through the paper packs, they are all so dear!  Then you get home and stare at them, and stare at them, scared to use those precious papers! If you make a mistake, well, what a waste of money! When they are gone they are gone. 

Not so with digital printable papers, no, you can print out as many as you like.. make a ooopsie-daisy .. print it again! 

This is one of the reasons that I decided to design my own, and here is one which I have just added to my Etsy shop....

I also allow commercial use of my printable journal kits, as I know some of you like to make a journal and then wish to sell it. I know that a lot of designers do not allow this, but I feel that everyone needs a helping hand now and then, and besides I like to be kind and spread the love!  My policies are on my shop and on the items for anyone wishing to sell their creations. 

Here is a little journal I made for a friend.. hope you like it! :)

Anyway, I mush dash, going to visit my Auntie in hospital and then there is the dinner to cook,the dogs to feed.  Wishing you all a happy Sunday!

A new venture selling printable quotes on my Etsy shop :)

Hello! Long time no mee! Ha ha. I am a terrible, terrible blog owner, absolutely appalling. Who would guess that a few years ago I blogged once a week no fail.. that is what happens when you take a short break!

Anyway, as some may know, I have a little Etsy shop, and it is little.. not many items in it really! Oh you know how it is, life gets in the way, and once again I am in the middle of a house renovation. Put that together with this and that and what it adds up to is not a lot of action in the creative department!

But! I have been putting together some inspirational quotes to put on my shop.. printable ones. Instantly downloadable once who ever buys them buys them! My Christmas printable journal kit and the add on kit which I created to match, are selling well and seem quite popular, so that is good!

So! I decided to try my hand at some printable quotes :

one of my printable quotes available now.

On the home side of things, we have just had the kitchen put in and a new cooker which I have been waiting for for two and a half years, so let's just say I am very happy and very, very grateful!
I shall put some photos on next time I do another blog post, but for now, love to you all.

Wonderful book by Pippa Munro!

Hello! Here I am again with a quick post about a commission for a book cover which I illustrated at the tail end of last year.  I have now read the book, well nearly all, but I couldn't wait to write about how much I am/have enjoyed snuggling up with a cup of tea and floating away into the story. It has a cosy warmth about it which makes you identify with all the lovely characters and gently draws you in.  I was brought to tears quite a few times while reading!

It really is a fabulous book! I have included a link above for anyone who is interested in reading it.. I love the way the stories intertwine and weave into such a readable and interesting tale!

Oh and by the way, I am actually still working on my next printable journal,  a bit slowly, but at the moment  we are renovating our home.. what a dusty mess!!  However,  despite only just having a rewire we did manage to have family here for dinner last weekend.. we used some old Polish recipes which George's Mum used to cook.. so yummy! I can highly recommend Polish food.. delicious!!

Love to you all!... Suzie x 💗

Happy New Year!!!

Just a quick post to wish you all a very happy 2017!

This year I hope to be adding more printable journal kits to my shop after a good start to my venture just on the run up to Christmas.  There will be more digi stamps, although they are slow to sell, so in the main I shall be concentrating more on my journal designs and ephemera.

Some of the printable double pages from my Christmas journal kit and add on kit.

There is a lot of content included, way too much to show here.. I really enjoyed designing Jolly Holiday! Here is the link to my shop Pink ink Pixie

Also, last year just towards the tail end, I was asked to illustrate a book cover written by Pippa Munro....

But now, once again Christmas has been and gone and we all stand before a fresh new year. This year will see me very busy with my designing but also with the renovation of our new home!  What have you got planned for 2017, I would love to know! 

Love to you all.. Suzie xxx

New on Pink ink Pixie at Etsy.. Jolly holiday printable add on kit!

Hello all again! I know, already!... I went all that time without a post and now here I am.. I just can't stop!  Just a quick update from yesterdays post really.  Anyone with an Etsy shop selling digital products will know that when you enter a listing, you can only upload so many files at a time, so what do we do with all the other work we have been busy designing? Another listing.. this time an add on kit for the Jolly Holiday printable journal kit which I put on my shop yesterday. 

This add on has everything you need to make a small notebook which can fit into a tuck spot in the journal and be used for lists or notes, or just Christmas rantings!  Or it can be used alone to carry with you in your handbag.. or to make Christmas paper aeroplanes to fly about the top of your Christmas tree.. whatever your imagination wishes! Also included .. ephemera, tags, banners, a bookmark, and other bits and bobs. 

Lovely! You know that I will most definitely be getting out my modge podge, glue, scizzors and book binding supplies and making this one myself! Can not wait! 

Before I do though, I have a drawing which I need to do... but I will be making this journal.. hopefully in time for Christmas!! 

Anyway good peeps, speak soon.. love and hugs

Suzie! xx

A Jolly Holiday coming your way!


Hello all you lovely people! Yes, the wanderer returns again after yet another long absence from my  blog!  However, better late than never as they say. 

Fresh on my Etsy shop today ..ta da! 

A instant downloadable journal kit, complete with cover and spine. A lot of time and thought goes into each one of my creations. Sometimes hours and hours, or even days and days pass by in my little art room, with nothing but the faint sound of my whirring brain and  the occasional whiff of smoke wafting from my ears as I try to make my feeble pea brain work just that little bit harder! Anyway, this one took ages, but I enjoyed every minute! 

So far, on my shop I have some digital paper packs and of course some digital stamps/images made from my original drawings.  


 Over the next few weeks I expect to have added more to the shop as my mind is brimming with ideas.. and besides it keeps me occupied! :)

On the home front, we have recently moved house and there is an awful lot of work to be done, but we love the big garden and the potential of this wreck!! Takes one to know one! Ha ha. 

Well, I am freezing.. the radiator doesn't work properly, so off to make a nice hot mug of tea! Will I post again soon, or will it not be for another year.. who knows?  Hopefully, as I have changed the name of my blog now and had a makeover.. I may well start posting more often again! 

Love to you all!! Suzie xxx
