I’m quickly back here to unashamedly plug a great event happening this Saturday 29th March in Brighton.
Some 14 Etsy Sellers will set up camp in the window of Super+Super, Kings Road, Brighton. Every hour 2 people will be in the window busy making something each, so at the end of the event there will at least 14 pieces of work.
Each piece will become a raffle prize and all profits from the raffle will go to the local disability led arts organistaion Carousel.
Please go along and support this wonderful event for a worthy charity.
More info is available on the Brighton Etsy Team website. I’ll also be blogging about it in more detail on my new blog GeorgieStClair.com
This website is no longer being updated for the reasons outlined below. I can now be found on my portfolio site and blog GeorgieStClair.com
Since having Poppet 15 months to the day, I’ve been on quite a journey personally and professionally. Having three children has been a lot harder than I envisaged! Throw a house renovation into the mix and well, let’s just say I’m greyer and wrinklier than those 15 months ago.
This blog started life as a Mum blog, to save me from those initial days, weeks and months of life with a newborn. As the months progressed, I started to feed my creative side once more. Writing about other creative projects has been wonderful. However the desire to have my own has been so strong, I just can’t deny it anymore.
These past few weeks I’ve been drawing again, reading creative texts obsessively and applying them back into my own work. My creative work is my passion.
I took part in the Blogging Your Way e-course a few months back and it’s totally changed my perspective on my blog and the way I want it to fit into my life. For the better I hasten to add.
Therefore I’ve decided to have a rest from talking about creative and crafty fabulousness here. Instead I now have my very own, creative portfolio site GeorgieStClair.com. I’ll still be sharing my finds and inspirations, but they’ll just be alongside some of my own work. Hopefully it will give you more of an insight into a slightly crazy mum of 3′s attempts into ‘making it’ in the world of art & design.
I look forward to seeing you over there.
I’m still on Twitter @georgiestclair

Now I certainly wouldn’t consider myself a fashion afficionado. I do, browse the images in Vogue and occasion and admire the latest styles, pinned by cool fashionsta bloggers on Pinterest. After all my grandfather was a master tailor and if I could come back again, I’d enter the fashion world as a master milliner. (more…)
Always inspired by Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ this is a great quote and sentiment to carry you through your week. Sometimes when the road gets rocky, the simple belief that things will get better is what you need to get though the day, week, month…
Made with an awesome app I’ve just discovered called Recite. Pinterest and quote addicts are going to love this one.
If there’s one artist I could sing the praises of for hours and hours, it’s Resa Blatman and her lasercut paintings. She’s got all the right ingredients for me: lasercut canvasses, oil paint and glitter. Even her works on paper are a mixed media joy to behold. (more…)
Thanks to Etsy School, I’m now up and running with the Etsy shop that I’ve dreamt of having for, well, about a year. Partnering with the lovely Vicky aka LIKKS, getting feedback and advice has been wonderful. (more…)
I’ve created this handy little colour graphic as a quick reference guide to the Pantone Autumn Colour Palette 2014 and their respective Hex Values (the HEX values are my interpretation and aren’t exact matches to the Pantone References.) (more…)
Welcome to Mr Finch’s fairytale world. It’s Friday and I’m in Love with fantastic Mr Finch, a male, self taught textile artist. Who’d have thought eh?! (more…)
This week ‘inspired by’ is a more romantic colour palette and moodboard for Valentines, initiated by the limited edition collection from IKEA. I love some of the pastel tones in the IKEA BRÅKIG Collection and I’ve picked the Coral Pink because, well it’s just so pretty and perfect for Valentines week. (more…)
The Holstee Manifesto Poster
I just adore this image, poster, ethos, message, whatever you want to call it. I like to try and read it every couple of weeks or so. Especially when life gets inevitably rough. It reminds me to return to this blog, to carrying sharing or delving into my passions and creativity via my sketchbook.
