I’ve been working on some new papercut designs recently including illustrating this lovely quote by one of the world’s greatest philosophers, Winnie the Pooh…..

I so love creating papercuts for people! I was lucky enough recently to have three wonderful commissions. Two were for new babies with beautiful names which I could incorporate into the design to make them really personalised, and the other was a memento of a holiday recently spent on the Isles of Scilly. I enjoyed getting all the different characters and activities into the landscape and am super pleased with the result – as was the recipient!
I love making papercuts for people so much. I love the thought that I make something for someone to give to someone they love, and that person is going to LOVE it! Here’s some I’ve been working on lately. The frustrating thing is that I often make them a few months in advance of them being given and I can’t show them until then! Anyway, here’s some lovely papercuts I’ve made for lovely people recently….
I’m really happily working on some new papercuts at the moment. I’ve got three different designs which can be personalised for a wedding or anniversary, and three different designs that can be personalised for a new baby. I can’t quite do the big reveal yet, but here’s a glimpse of one of the new baby ones….
Well, yet again, I’ve gone too long without blogging, but when you hear why you’ll forgive me. CecilyMae has relocated and is absolutely loving living in Leicester! Yes, Leicester. It’s so much fun up here with loads of arty crafty things going on and I have the studio I’ve always wanted…..
The first finished item out of the blocks was a quilt and book cushion commission for a very lucky little girl’s new nursery….
CecilyMae has also gone international this week with an article in Germany’s Landhaus Living magazine!
So that’s it for now…. promise to keep you updated more often. Hope the sun is as sunny wherever you are is it is here in lovely Leicester. I’m off to sit in the garden and enjoy the weather with the cats and a coffee…..
This seems to have happened very quickly. This was last week…
….and this was today…
It was glorious. Stanley and I sat and read in the sun aaaaaalllllllllll afternoon, until the sun went behind the neighbour’s tree and our feet and paws got a little bit nippy….
Let’s hope it stays for a bit. In other news, I built a boat. Well, sort of. It’s a land-going boat, but good enough for a 6 year old and a 3 year old who have their eye patches and cutlasses at the ready….
2013 has been such a whirl I’ve not had the chance to keep you all updated on what’s going on at CecilyMae Central! New Year’s resolution No.1 is to be a better blogger. So to make up for the lack of posts in the last few months, here’s a little round up of what I’ve been up to starting with just some of the many papercuts that have been keeping me so busy….
