Right then. I am selling some packs of my charity Christmas Cards to help raise as much money as possible for the Friends of the Elderly. A very worthy cause indeed in my opinion.
A pack of 5 Christmas cards of the same design. These cards incorporate the drawings and Christmas memories of the residents of Friends of the Elderly’s Residential Care Home in Hampshire. All profits raised from the sale of these cards will help to support Friends of the Elderly’s vital work assisting isolated older people.
The cards are A6 in size and packaged in sets of 5.
Per pack of 5 £3.60 + postage
Postage costs are
90p for 1 pack, £1.20 for 2 packs, £2 for 3-5 packs, £3 for 6-7 packs, £4.30 for 8-10 packs and £5 for 10+.
To purchase please email
Here are some pics of all my work loaded up in the car ready for delivery to the shop plus some pics of the work in the shop. (Not necessarily in the right place as it’s a work in progress at the moment!) The shop opens at 11 tomorrow morning.
(Sunday 11th November – Cabot Circus).
I have to say that I am really very excited and chuffed to have my work in this amazing shop. Anna is such a lovely woman and the shop already looks fantastic. I will no doubt spend more money than I make but there you go!!!!
The countdown is on and I am very excited. Well, excited but also extremely busy getting everything ready for the shop/gallery.
Last year I walked in to the Anna Smithson Pop Up Shop, upstairs in Cabot Circus Bristol and it took my breath away. For some reason I was feeling brave that day and I asked Anna if she fancied taking a look at my stuff with a view of being involved in recent shops/galleries.
I didn’t hear back for a while and kind of just took it for granted that she wasn’t interested (as you do!).
Anyway I did hear back and she was interested and here I am 2 weeks until date of delivery!!
I am not going to show you my new prints as I want you to see them looking their best in their swanky frames along side everything else. But I will show you two new Christmas cards!!
I will let you know the exact opening date and time very very soon and please come down and take a look. If you don’t live in Bristol, come anyway. Cabot Circus is fab and obviously will be even more fab this November!!
So it’s live. Check it out….
I am also really chuffed to be able to work with the charity Friends of the Elderly and at the moment I am in the process of designing their Christmas Card. More info to follow.
There is a bit about me in there somewhere!!!!!
Every now and then I will do a sneaky little bargain. From now until tomorrow midnight I am offering my large PARIS print for £50.00 instead of £70.00. – UNFRAMED. What a bargain indeed!! (I even have a cushion to match!).
The first one to text or email me or comment on here will be the lucky winner – well winner so to speak as you still have to pay. But it’s the thought that counts this close after Christmas.
I am getting very festive and we even put our tree up last weekend which was November!!!! I know, slightly ridiculous but there you go!
There are my fave decs this year.
These next two were made by my Mum. I think they are totally amazing.
