Panda and Fox Story

panda_04I have been wanting to tell you the story of Fox and Panda for a while, but the truth is I took these little necklaces to a craft market, about two weeks ago, and completely sold out!

So I have been very busy creating a new batch so I could finally take photos and make them available in the shop for you. You can purchase them individually, but I would really recommend going for the combo deal! Each product comes with the free eBook that you can read and enjoy while the necklace(s) is packaged and shipped off to you.

I took the opportunity of my production time to also put together a short story about these two little guys. I got author and editor, Michelle Ainslie, to cast her eye over the final story, to ensure all the spelling and grammar gremlins had all been chased out before I created a few illustrations and whipped it all together in an easy to download format. Below is the the first section of the story. (more…)

Santa Helper Christmas Postcards to Santa

cape town postcardsDay 1

Dear Santa

We have arrived at Cape Town, which unlike home, is sunny during Christmas time. We thought we would go to the company gardens in town as we had heard so much about it. It was such a good day. The company gardens are filled with old trees and there was a delightful tea garden. Everything was going so well until Sam gave a howling screech. We all turned to look and he was racing down the path, with a squirrel chasing him. The squirrel kept swiping at Sam’s bell – I think he didn’t like the noise it made.
We all quickly left the tea, jumped down and ran after Sam and the squirrel. The squirrel got horrified with all of us running, with all our bells ringing that it jumped and climbed up the nearest tree. Sam was panting with exhaustion. We all checked to make sure he was OK, thinking the drama was over, until a pigeon came and we all had to start running again. Being small and making ringing noise seem to be bad characteristics in this place.

Love
From the Santa Helpers (more…)
