  1. We offset our carbon footprint via Ecologi

    As a small business owner and someone who works from home I wouldn't have thought my carbon foot print was as big as some but everytime I buy something I need, or send a delivery out, I am adding to my carbon foot print. That's why I decided to become a member of Ecologi. Ecologi support carbon offset projects such as renewable energy schemes and fund tree planting abroad and at home.

    With 85% of their money going toward the projects they support by paying a monthly subscription it feels like I can really make a difference. I have also added a monthly payment to buy a tree in Scotland with The Future Forest Company. You are then sent a link with the exact location and a picture of the tree you have bought. So having just joined I have already planted 113 trees. I have added the widget to my website footer so you can see the number of trees planted growing each month. 

  2. I'm delighted to tell you that I have a new jigsaw design available. After months of having a world wide cardboard shortage it seemed impossible to get them but now that people are venturing out and about it has arrived!

    The new jigsaw is called The Puffinry and is published by Ravensburger. It pictures puffins on a cliff top, surrounded by flowers and bees. Some puffins are sitting on the ground and some are in their burrows. In the background there are boats and a lighthouse. In the distance there are hills and puffy white clouds.

    My last Ravensburger jigsaw was named by The Independant as one of the best jigsaws to do during lockdown. It was stocked by Next and John Lewis and quickly sold out.  I am hoping this jigsaw will as popular.

  3. I'm delighted that the Ailsa Black 2021 wall calendar is here. I'm delighted that this year Ailsa Black calendars are also being stocked by the RSPCA and Marie Curie.Featuring some of my most popular painting these calendars will be a practical and colourful addition to your year.

    Also this year again I was delighted to work with the RSPB again to produce their 2021 Year Planner.  The 2021 Year Planner is a practical and useful family planner for the year ahead. It aslso features some of my most popular art and goes to support a very good cause with a £5000 donation being given to the RSPB from the publisher.
