Heysen Centenary Celebration Walk

A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned to illustrate a map for the Heysen Centenary Celebration Walk in Hahndorf, South Australia. When I read the brief I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. For starters, I love maps. Secondly, I grew up in the Adelaide Hills, so i've got a bit of a soft spot for this lovely little village. Lastly, if you're familiar with my work you would know that i love detail, colour and hand-drawn type, this project ticked all the boxes.

The self-guided walk highlights some of the magnificent, historic buildings depicted in Heysen╩╝s works. If you're up in the hills between the 5-13th October, grab a map and take a stroll. Have fun!

Happy Molly

Last weekend we sadly had to say goodbye to our family cat of 13 years, Felix. He was a good cat. Each day he would walk down to the chicken shed and bring us back a mouse, most of which he would leave under the dining room table. If you were reading the news paper or using the laptop, you could bet anything that he would come along and sit right in the middle of it. If Molly was in the garden, Felix would be out there too, stalking her like a jungle tiger. Molly and Felix were the best of friends. They would keep eachother company and cuddle up together on the couch at night. Molly was just as sad as us to see him go. Yesterday we took her to the beach,  it's been the first time since last weekend that she has been her normal self. She loves the beach, especially when there is a tennis ball involved.

We ate lunch at The Jetty Food Store then joined Mum and Dad in making a bon fire. When it got dark we cooked sausages on the tripod over the hot coals and ate timtams for dessert. What a weekend. Hope you all had a lovely couple days off too. x

Last week I had a stall at That Dapper Market. It was just sooo lovely meeting some of the brilliant people in person that help support my little business. I went home that night feeling extra positive and very excited about soon launching my new line of X-mas cards and also brooches. I also noticed that I have almost reached 400 likers on my facebook page so I thought i'd take this time to say THANKYOU to each and everyone of you for helping make this journey so fun. 

SO, to go in the draw to win my entire line of greeting cards, pop on over to facebook, share the image you see below and cross your fingers! Thanks again everyone, love Pip x
