 It's been snowing here in Edinburgh for the past few days. This is Blackford Hill near our house on the first day. It's snowed pretty heavily since then so i bet it looks really beautiful up there now. I grew up on the South-West coast of England so snow is still a bit of a novelty for me. I'm rapidly getting bored of the ankle-deep slush on the pavements though! Below Jez and I looking red-faced and chilly in our woolly hats!

What with it being December tomorrow I thought I'd give you a heads up on post deadlines for Christmas. These are the deadlines you need if you want to order from my shop and get it in time for Christmas:

Asia, Australia, NZ, Africa & S. America- December 6th 
USA & Eastern Europe- December 10th
Western Europe- December 13th
UK- December 18th

Shop Local (local to me anyway)

Here's a quick round up of some of the hand made treats on offer in the fine city of Edinburgh this festive season. All pretty perfect gifts I reckon.

Super Christmas cards from Eleni Karlorkoti 
 Small Mr Lion screenprint by Verity Keniger

Small Print Factory by Jez Burrows

Log badge by Louise Smurthwaite

Or you could pick something up from an Edinburgh based shop like Analogue Books, the Red Door Gallery or Hannah Zakari.

There's a new set of three postcards in my etsy store. I hope you folk like them.

Last week Eastwing asked that I put together some mocked up bookcovers for my folio. These are a few of the ones I did (they vary in quality- i did seven in under a week...come on!). I hope you like them!
