I’ve made my first sale on Etsy! Whoopee! Thanks to Ike from Ike’s World! She happens to have a fantastic new challenge blog starting too which I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into.

As I said in my last post, I’ve been busy making cards and have just added these two to my Etsy shop.

We have just had some new second-hand furniture delivered (by my lovely dad and his friend!) and I have fallen in love with the dressing table! It has turned into a new work desk – it’s fantastic! So, specially for Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday (for which, granted, I am a couple of days late) here it is!

Oh look, a cup of tea!

Sam went fishing yesterday evening so I had a few creative hours to myself. I drew this teeny weeny zentangle. Here it is in progress…


…and here it is finished with my finger plonked right in the middle of it to give you an idea of the scale!

I’m really into my teeny weeny nibbed pens at the moment. I’ve just ordered a pack of twelve 0.05mm black waterproof uniPin fine liners – I can’t wait for them to be delivered! I used a 0.1mm pen to outline this painting of a sea turtle and painted it with watercolours.

Oh, and I almost forgot! Last weekend we spent a lovely couple of days with Sam’s family in London. On Saturday we were tourists on a whistle-stop tour with a day pass on the tube. It was great fun! I’m linking this diary page up to Balzer Designs: Art Journal Every Day.


If you haven’t already popped over to my Facebook page, please do. I still have a giveaway running (perhaps aiming for 500 likers was a little ambitious…) so if you follow my blog, share the Facebook page and like it you are still in with a chance of winning this seagull painting.

Today I’m partying at the following linky parties: Thirty Handmade Days, I Gotta Create and A Creative Princess.


Ooooh !! Such a cute turtle – amazing Clare 🙂
Wonderful minitangle and the cards are really cool 🙂 My FAVE…. Seagulls 😀

I had to laugh at your “looked good but tasted rubbish” art on Covent Garden–I had the same xp there last time I was there.

Your zectangle art is incredible and esp considering its size! Wow. Tiny yet so detailed.

You have a great style, Calre, keep it up! 🙂
