1. Who or what inspired you to start your own blog?
My kids – becoming a Mum changed me so much. I have always loved writing but I wanted my kids to have something consistent. These years are flying by at the speed of lightening and I adore writing about the highs and lows.

- Who or what inspired you to start your own design business?
I kind of started my business by accident! After graduating from ECA (Edinburgh College of Art) in 2005 I began working at a design agency and while I absolutely loved my job, I missed ‘getting my hands dirty’ as ultimately, I was working on a computer every day. I joined the Edinburgh Printmakers where I would spend a few evenings a week and the odd Saturday screen-printing my illustrations onto different surfaces such as paper, wood and fabric.
