You're Invited to Tea....

With Nellie Belle! You helped to name her and here she is finally doing what she was created to do....

My very first party planner book featuring Nellie Belle and "her" tips for holding your very own tea party.

I have been thinking about this project since the summer I'm ashamed to admit. The images has been drawn for a couple of months as well. But it just wasn't clear in my mind or coming together for me. I was always there, just not quite what I wanted it to be.

And then suddenly yesterday it clicked. I ran my idea by a confident and mentor of sorts and the ideas started flowing. Luckily I had finished my important bits yesterday before the idea took hold as once it did, there was no stopping me. I worked straight through and this morning I was out the door for supplies as soon as the shops opened.

And the end result? I'm very pleased with it. Very colourful, very sweet. Just what Nellie Belle should be.

FYI - I've listed this in my Etsy shop here if you want to find out more about it.
