Lots of news!

My poor neglected blog, I feel like I haven’t checked in here for ages! That’s because I have been very busy with Easter holidays, then ill children and lots of work too.

I am very proud to announce that I am a current featured seller on Folksy, where I have my main online shop, this is a wonderful privilege as there are only 6 a month! I have been working hard to improve my products and images and this appears to have finally paid off. Have a little look if you haven’t already, Folksy is full of wonderful designer makers and I am very proud to be part of the community. http://www.folksy.com/shops/amyorangejuice

My latest Indie Smiles article is up on the website, please check it out if you have a moment, it is a lovely online mag for crafters and crafty issues! http://www.indiesmiles.com

I am all signed up to do Devon Open Studios in September 2010, which will be my first time! and is both exciting and daunting! Watch this space for how that develops.

My friend Thrifty Nifty is opening a fantastic gallery/shop in Barnstable in June and I have a huge purchase order for stock for the gallery, which is great for my little business, but having cut out 50 hearts I now have to copper foil them all, which is going to take sometime!

And last but not least here are my cartoons for my latest commission, 2 farm house windows for the lovely Luckhurst family who are renovating a farmhouse in Dartmoor. They are variations on some of my recent Dartmoor series and will be built into double glazed units. Their house is very close to Hay Tor, so hopefully they will add a wonderful extra finishing touch to their home!

    Loving your work, Amy OJ. If I lived nearer I’d be forcing you to teach me how. All those rich colours – I love them. Put the kettle on – I’m coming over!

    Hey Amy – love the choice of colours in your drawings, especially the one with purple – all those shades of greeny blues – will be beautiful if you can match those colours in glass. x
