This time last year...

A year ago I went part time at Boots (and had pink hair!) A year on and I'm FULL TIME SUNSHINE (and have pink hair again!)

If anyone had told me this would be the case last year I wouldn't have believed them but here I am! Living my dream and more determined than ever to make Hello Sunshine a success!

I couldn't do it without you lovely lot supporting me with your kind words, commissions and sunshine purchases though! THANK YOU SO MUCH!


New hair to mark new beginnings! 
A treat to myself using my last full time wage packet from Boots. 
Hello pink hair! Hello part timer! #excitedface #pink

Sunshine doodles on AMAZON!

Over the Easter jollies I received a VERY EXCITING email about a project I worked on last year. This is Sally The Great White Cat and Little Princess. They are characters I created for Dot and Glyn to help bring their lovely story to life.


Sally The Great White Cat: The Rescue is a story for young children exploring the magic of the clouds, their ever changing shapes and the adventures of a little girl who makes a very special friend.

It was a complete joy to work on this project and the most exciting part now is that you can BUY THE BOOK on Amazon.co.uk! YAY! Click here to have a peek!

I'M BACK!

Yup I'm back and I'm armed with an extra awesome doodle which I can now share with you...


I LOVE this Sunshine for many reasons, mainly because it's of one of my amazing friends Charlie and her husband Matt and they are out doing what they love in the mountains and snow of Canada. I also love that it was a surprise 30th birthday present from Charlie's Mum & Dad. This doodle is also a different style to any other Sunshines I've done in the past and I am really pleased with how it turned out!

HAPPY TIMES!
