Press coverage update (I know, its been ages!)

I MUST blog more, I must I must! It is just sometimes hard when you are a one woman show, but no excuses now, I am at my desk and ready to tell you about some great press exposure we’ve had recently.

A short while ago, we had the most wonderful feature in The Guardian about how to bring out your inner artist- featuring Sketchbook Club! Hooray!

It was such a lovely piece and we had an overwhelming response from it (waves at all the new followers/users/subscribers!).

You can read the full article here

We also had a sweet little piece in Yours magazine, one of my Sketchbook Club members was asked what she did creatively in her retirement and she very Kindly told them all about Sketchbook Club. She made a really good point that she now makes a lot of her cards as a result of learning how to paint and draw, hooray for Sketchbook Club and thank you so much Ann! xxx

We also had a nice mention in Bath Life magazine for our Circus patches, which are stocked in the wonderful Children’s shop in bath, Spotty Herberts. If ever you are in Bath, do check them out, it is honestly the loveliest Children’s shop I have ever been to!

So… I promise I will try and Blog more, especially as we are getting to that point where we choose FUN things for our house (we’re building a house, yup, a whole new house – scary!). Until my next post, have a lovely week and keep on showing me your Sketchbook Club masterpieces!

Hooray for The Guardian!

We LOVE The Guardian, always have and always will. We especially love Kate Carter who has championed our cause right from the start, I am eternally grateful for her support.

This Christmas, Kate selected my Online Sketchbook Club to be featured in her line up of best Subscription gifts; we were INUNDATED, it has been incredible.

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that so many of you are taking part and creating Sketchbooks again, it makes me feel SO happy.

So, a very big welcome to you all… I can’t wait to see your creations! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #sketchbookclub (and the relevant module’s hashtag too) so we can all see what you do.

We’re all in this together, I am here for you; either via instagram, twitter or email (, I will always answer any questions, give feedback or support whenever you need me 🙂

Good Luck everyone and THANK YOU Kate and The Guardian!
