New References!Thank you to everyone that sent me a birthday message I had a fun day running around a zoo with my camera collecting new ideas for wood burns! These are the animals that I will be working on soon:-
Ring tailed lemur
My husband-to-be bought me some markers so I have a lot of colours to play with as far as ink drawing goes. I also have tons of wooden hearts! Exciting!
If anyone knows of any useful marker tutorials I would be very grateful
Interview!Nautical Owl was kind enough to approach me for an interview, so here it is:
Etsy is live once again!Hello all! I hope you all had a lovely whatever you celebrate at this time of year! The Etsy shop has been reopened and restocked! You can find it here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GemsbyGem?ref=si_shop
Much of my inventory sold over the festive period so there are quite a few gaps in the token department. I will be working on a huge range of new ones soon, hopefully including more birds and insects
A little personal news as well - my lovely boyfriend of 5 years has asked me to marry him! He took me to my favourite lake and asked me when I was surrounded by my geese, duck, swan, moor hen and grebe friends Of course I said yes! Now I can't seem to stop myself drawing water birds
How were your holidays? Any new years resolutions coming up?
Frequently Asked QuestionsHello to everyone who has recently watched me! I have been completely shocked by the positive response that my British animals have gotten in the past few hours, it means the absolute world to me that they have been enjoyed.

So, here is a little FAQ - just so I can answer everyone who took the time to ask
