... it's been such a busy Summer and such a busy start to the Autumn that I haven't been posting so very much on the blog. I've been beavering away on a series of 4 fun books for children which are due for publication next year. As usual I can't reveal too much, but I'm pleased to say I'm now half-way through the project! Looking forward to sharing more soon. In the meantime, we've been having a little bit of a facelift over on the JNA website and here are my updated 'about' and 'portfolio' pages which have been beautifully fused together by Jennifer.

... Valentine's day is coming up pretty pronto, and with that in mind I thought you might like to see a design I created for the little people in our lives with love on their minds! So here's little busy buzzy bee carrying her satchel full of valentine treats & a special card to hand out at school ...  I wonder who the lucky recipient will be?!! xox

... Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2017!! ... I read somewhere that at the beginning of every new year we have 365 wonderful opportunities waiting for us to wake up every morning and to make the best of if we adopt the right frame of mind ... I'm hoping that this new year will be a good one that will bring with it lots of fresh opportunities to flourish and grow ... What will you do this year? ... Go on, make it special and make it a year to remember ... xox
