Wooo hoo Happy Halloween

Halloween at the Curve Garden  © Susse Ltd 2013

Wooo  hoo oooo Happy Halloween. Here are some personal pictures today of our family outing to Curve garden last Sunday. we had the perfect Autumn Sunday last weekend.  I made some Home made pancakes for breakfast then off to Columbia flower market and then to the Museum of Childhood. Popped into a friends for coffee and a catch up. Then we ended our day and went to the Curve garden where all the local kids where carving pumpkins. Then the night came and the Curve garden was turned into a magical place as the lights where slowly turned out and we all looked in awe at all the pumpkin lanterns twinkling away in the garden. A beautiful memory to have. I hope Rocket will keep this as a childhood memory in the future. Happy Halloween.

Add fun to your year

Add fun to your  year November Susse Ltd © 2013

Hello it's time to add some fun to your year again. We manage to survive the storm in London this week. Sadly some old beautiful trees are missing in the surrounding streets like missing teeth. But the good news no one was hurt so I guess that's a good thing and  it is making way for some new trees in the neighbourhood.  Here is a new calendar page for November to print and down load inspired by all those swirling leaves that the Autumn winds bring. No swirling trees though. Enjoy.

From my desk this week - Cards for the holidays.

Happy Holidays Greeting Cards Susse Ltd © 2013
Hello from my desk this week. I have been busy putting the finishing touches to some new products for the Susse Store it's been some time since I updated it. Here's a peak of work in progress of my store catalogue I am working on. It's not quite right yet but I thought I wanted to show you some of my greeting cards from my Winters Tale that I have designed. It dose feel like the Holiday's are a long way off as we get ready for Halloween . But it never surprises me how Christmas just suddenly appears out of the blue.  I am getting ready for mid term break so lots of pumpkin carving and Halloween costume making for me and Rocket next week.
Have a lovely weekend and don't forget to change your clocks if you live in the UK winters is on it's way.

From my desk this week Positive moves

Hello from my desk this week. This month has all been about  positive moves. Yesterday I finally put my profile up on the Moyo directory.  A fantastic resource for talented surface pattern designers from around the world. They also produce a beautiful Moyo magazine about surface pattern. I have been planning to put my work on show for some time so I am excited I finally made it. If you like what you see why not give me a like. Or support the other designers too.

As I said my main focus has all been  about positive moves for my business this month so I am also excited to taking part in the next Pattern Observer Ultimate guide to repeats workshop starting next week. I really want to make my patterns more professional now as I am getting comfortable using the computer now. I am looking forward to seeing what creations I can come up with in the work shop. I will let you know  my experiences too.

Any positive moves you have made this week for yourself?

Hello from my desk this week. I don't usually post at the weekend. Yeah family all still asleep so I just popped into share my nice surprise I had this week. Remember I entered a competition a few weeks back at Tiger print.
I made it to the top ten out of 1000 entries. I am so happy as I have been experimenting with some new colours and feeling more confident using the computer. Just working with shape and colour is quite a nice challenge to work on especially as I always like to do more figurative designs.  Check out the other lovely entries too. Everyone still asleep I am going enjoy a nice Sunday morning coffee enjoy the beautiful sunshine. See you next week.

New Susse Shop at Bespo

Hello I just wanted to share my new store over at Bespo. The Bespo store is a UK based store where artists promote and sell their designs as products worldwide as an on line community. The good thing is all products are produced on demand so no back log of stock. I always wanted to create more home ware products. You can now brighten up your home with some Susse home wares. From cushions, place mats art prints and tea towels.  
I went back to my  Scandinavian roots for this little collection called Folk tales. Taking inspiration from Scandinavian folk art and giving it a modern twist. I hope you like the new collection and enjoy some of the other great designs over at Bespo.
