My husband comes from a large family. A family that embraces new members and has such a high essence of fun that it would put any circus to shame. The entire family gets together for reunions … reunions that are so much fun that no-one ever wants them to end.

A few years ago at a reunion we learnt that the head of the family – Grandma – had put pen to paper and written her life story. And quite literally I mean pen to paper. There were several exercise books filled plus some travel diaries, notes on cards and photographs. It was decided that a few of us would piece together everything and present it to the family as a keepsake.

Written by the most extraordinary women most of us know about the thing she held most dear – family. It has become a keepsake of the stories, places, people, travelling, antics, history and above all family.

I will probably never work or be given the honour to create a project like this again. So I cherished every stage, every piece of the puzzle, every story, photograph and giggle. And I thank Grandma … oh so much. Enjoy!

Project #1 – a little festive something

Project #1 – a little festive something

Well it tis’ the season and we have been getting our festive groove on here at the studio.

Last week our beloved clients received a little care package from stuffbyrenée thanking them for their support throughout the year. It seems our gift was a bit of a hit with many reporting the scrumptious contents had been devoured immediately (big thanks to Fine Taste Bowral for a super yummy batch of fudge).

I must admit in between the illustrating, trimming and packaging there had been some sampling of goods in the studio also.

So big thanks to all our clients and supporters and watch out for an exciting 2015. Enjoy!
