last day in my current job

Happy Friday to all my lovely readers, hope you're smiling out there!

So, as the title suggests... this is my last day in my current job. I cannot begin to tell you how excited/scared I am as to what the future may hold!

Male designs

Hey there lovely Readers!

Here's hoping you're all more cheerful than the weather is at present; there's so much GROTTY rain... I got slightly soggy this morning: euurrcchhh!

Well, it appears that things could finally be slotting into place for Nanny; the illustration thing is taking off but more importantly (at this time) the part time job search is coming to fruition - I have an interview next week! YEY! I hope the team like me and feel I'm suitable for the role!

Illustration wise, MALE DESIGNS seem to overall be what people want! Here is my first of (hopefully) a few things to be posted!

What are your thoughts? :-)
chat soon xxxx

Things are moving quickly...

Hello :-D

Yesterday's surprises for THB went VERY WELL, he adored his card, gifts and how I decorated the house for when he got home (lots of photos of us both, helium balloons and sweets!). I then took him to a restaurant he's always wanted to go to; I think it's fair to say he had a great time :-) YIPPEEEEE!

Happy Birthday Treasure Hunt Boy

Howdy doody there folks,

Hope you're feeling happy and well :-) So, on top of all my excitement from new agents, companies who are interested in ranges and searching for a part time job I've also been planning for Treasure Hunt Boy's birthday which is TODAY! Woo! As regular readers of my blog will know, THB and I met and started going out in June/July last year. Things have just gotten better and better and I'm just so happy! WOOP WOOP! Anyways, this is his card - I know he won't look on here tonight so the surprise is safe!

I can't wait for later tonight when I surprise him with gifts and goodies! YIPPEE! xxx

Last Friday I spent the day with THB in the garden clearing out the dead bits, mowing the lawn, tidying up and PLANTING NEW THINGS! I love being in the garden (perhaps the bottle of Prosecco helped) and I'm quite proud of what we've achieved. The part I love most about gardening (if you haven't already guessed) is sowing seeds and planting the young seedlings out. We cheated a bit as we put the seed pots in the conservatory but I just have to tell you: OUR SEEDS ARE ALREADY GROWING! This makes me so happy!! It inspired this, hope you likey!

:-) yey! seeeeeeeeeeeeddddsssssssssssssss!!! I'm hoping to plant more but I need to find the room first... I'm sure the conservatory will be like a jungle soon :-)

Anyways, not sure if I've mentioned this already here but I've just joined A Fresh Bunch! How exciting, TWO agencies in the space of a month! Wish me luck!

Hope you have a great weekend all, lots of love: ME XXXX

Thursday flowers and birdies


How are you guys? Things are going from crazy to mental with me! I'M SO BUSY but it's all good and I feel positive about it all. I've had lots of interest and requests for work, I just hope that I can make a proper living out of all of this!!

I got asked to create some more patterns in the same way as I made the fruity one posted a couple of weeks ago... here's the first of hopefully many! Hope you like it :-)

and in white...

mmm... florals! Chat soon :-) Nanny xxx

Easter - it couldn't have come at a better time!

Hey hey hey,

How is everyone doing? Hopefully not as pooped as I am! I am soooooo pleased it's the weekend and SO HAPPY that it's an EXRA LONG weekend too :-)

I love Easter as it means so much to my Mummy (good Catholic woman) but I adore it even more this year as Treasure Hunt Boy and I are going to see CIRQUE DU SOLEIL on Saturday and I may actually pee my pants as I've been DYING to go for, well, forever!! YIPPEEEEE!

Hope you all have a wonderful and most peaceful Easter :-) FOR YOU:

ta ta for now! Nanny xxx

Life is rushing past meeeeee!

Hey all,

I feel I must apologise for being so rubbish and not blogging often enough over the past few weeks; due to the change in job situation I have been completely preoccupied trying to go freelance! Updates:

- I'm now on twitter! Search @NannaSAdesign  :-)
- I'm now signed to Beehive Illustration!
- I have other things in the pipeline but will tell you later!

In other news, there's still time to vote for my melon design on threadless which seems to have gone down well already :-)

I have to get on with some stuff now but I hope to have something new for you tomorrow! BYE xxx
