      Happy International Coffee Day!☕

      As it's International Coffee Day, I thought it’d be fun to show you the original sketches and doodles that became the I Need Coffee range

      sketches of kawaii style coffee cups, mugs and a donut

      I may be happy and positive most of the time but not first thing in the morning!

      I can’t start my day without a freshly brewed coffee. My personal caffeine addiction was the inspiration to draw cute coffee cups.

      I came up with "I Don't Need a Motivational Quote, I Need Coffee" as I was looking through Instagram whilst making my morning coffee. The uplifting quotes I saw were annoying me. Normally I am all for an inspirational quote, my desk is surrounded by them, but I was grumpy because I needed coffee!

      Everything I do starts with a pencil drawing in my sketchbook, but before I had an iPad everything was drawn in pen again and again until good enough to scan it in to the computer.  Which is why I have lots of practice pages of the quote.

      Having an iPad can now speed up that process. I still finesse the drawings and add colour on the computer.

      It’s fun to look back and see the initial idea/doodle and how it became a real product.

      Hope you enjoyed seeing inside my sketchbook. 

      Before I go, remember....

      Have a great day!

      Father's Day Gift Ideas

      Father’s Day is around the corner (on 21st June). If you haven’t got a card of gift yet there is still time (but I wouldn’t leave it for too long as the Royal Mail are still experiencing delays).

      It's still a weird time and a lot of us (me included) will not get to see our Dad this Father's Day, but that doesn't mean we can't make it special.

      Here are some of the cards and gifts in my shop ideal for Father's Day.

      FAB DAD scrabble cards are back for 2020 with new designs

      Need a Gift?

      Coasters are an easy gift to pop in the post.

      Does your Dad enjoy a glass of wine or a beer?

      If he is a footie fan, then these football coasters are in clearance and have been reduced to £3.

      Available in Black and White, Royal Blue and Sky Blue.

      Or maybe he would prefer a magnet? All magnets are also in clearance at £2.50


      All clearance items are reduced to clear and when they are gone, they are gone!

      If you want to give your Dad a bigger gift and he's difficult to buy for, what about a mug and two coaster gift set?

      Everyone needs a mug, right?!

      For a Tea Loving Dad

      For a Coffee Loving Dad

      Both sets are £16 each.  The mug and coasters are also available separately but the set is 10% cheaper compared to buying the items individually.

      At the moment I am only shipping to UK addresses. There are still severe delays due to many authorities applying special measures within their working practices to minimise the spread of the virus.  

      I will keep an eye on the situation and will start shipping worldwide as soon as I can.

      As an alternative to sending a gift, you can buy your Dad an eGift card which are available here. They have no expiry date so can be saved until I am shipping worldwide again.

      If you are worried about your card or gift being delayed by the current postal delays or you don't want to go to the Post Office, I can send your card and/or gift directly to your Dad with a handwritten message. 

      How will you treat your Dad this Father's Day?

      Take care!
