Sarah Foster


Hello,
Last night I met up with my college friend Sarah for a much needed catch up! As our birthdays are pretty close together we arranged to go for tea at TGI Fridays and exchange gifts. I had a lovely time and we laughed a lot which is always good! :)

Anyway Sarah owns a very beautiful gift shop situated in the quaint village of Marsden (Huddersfield) 
At Roobarb you will find items ranging from home accessories, beautiful gifts to unique handmade items.




Above and below are my very neatly wrapped presents by Sarah (unlike mine) which you can find more information about on the Roobarb blog!


You can also find Sarah's work through her twitter & facebook pages.

Here is a little peak at the gift I made for Sarah's birthday..



So I hope you like the shop and I definitely recommend visiting the shop at some point before Christmas xx

Headingley Arts Trail - 2011



I displayed four of my handmade collage pieces at the trail... and they even got a little mention on BBC Radio Leeds! :)



'There is no place like home' 


'Home is where the heart is'


A few digitally printed greetings cards...



I also displayed one large framed art print, three smaller prints as well as a few unframed art prints.

Doodles

Doodling in my notepad whilst the football was on (again)!





Shapes

Inspired by watch links... 
I created these designs with a male send in mind.



Biscuits!

I've been working on a collection of quirky illustrations to develop into cards and gift wrap...




Floral Collection

For this floral collection I have taken aspects from my previous handmade wallpapers such as the composition and images to create something much more bright and commercial.
