We have finally had weeks of wonderful spring sunshine in the UK and with spring I now have a selection of products available on EtsyUK including greeting cards, pocket mirrors and the new personalised Smile Prints. The prints are perfect gifts for new babies, birthdays, christenings, anniversaries or for any occasion for someone special. I will be regularly adding to the Etsy shop so please do look out for new listings and for new products: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LucyMonkman and I do hope that you are enjoying sunshine as well.
The Age Cards are a range of birthday cards for girls and for boys aged one to eight. The cards feature black and white line drawings of animal characters with bold and colourful lettering. For added fun each design has a relevant number of animals to count. An offer on the range has now been introduced with any two cards now being available for a special price for all children aged one to eight.
It has been an exciting time for York Makers this week. Helen Young and I were interviewed by Luke Taylor of That’s TV York about our forthcoming Spring Fair and about the thriving arts and crafts scene in our city. We were filmed in the beautiful quadrangle of York St. John University and until I appeared on our local television channel I had no idea how often I use the word huge. The event is on Saturday 21 April at Clements Hall and it will be a wonderful opportunity to find the individual and the different from the curated group of designers that attend. I have illustrated a selection of their work and the first 150 visitors will receive a free postcard. Please do say hello if you are planning to visit. I will be standing in front of a plate full of handmade tags as I have also been busy with my coloured paper and my glue stick this week.
