Although it’s been a busy week here, it’s been a week full of working with the loveliest people and doing the nicest of things.

I am grateful for the shape this artful life has taken and for the people who make it possible.

Today I visited the Constance Wallace teashop (which I have mentioned before here)

 but they have since gone on to open a beautiful shop.

Alongside all the gorgeous vintage china for sale/hire and the beautifully curated things you just need to have, like the softest socks and eye-catching ceramics and pretty handmade buttons, they have been stocking some of my prints, cards and original art.

 I went today to replenish the stock and had the prettiest and most delicious business meeting yet 😉

I’d recommend a visit especially as they are now licensed to sell Prosecco too!

Claire Leggett greeting card rose macaron

Just popping in with my business hat on to let you know that I’ve had some new greetings cards made up.

Claire Leggett greeting card tea and cake

These are all vintage teacup paintings with a little something on the side.

Professionally printed onto watercolour paper and blank inside, they are good enough as cards or for letter notes.

You can see bigger photos of the paintings themselves here and I’ll put the cards in my shop really soon.

I’ve also painted a new set of notebooks –  I was probably inspired by these dark nights we’re getting now.

Hurrah! my new 2016 calendar is printed and ready.

Claire_leggett_surface_pattern_design_calendar_MAY_2016 copy

I think I like it more than last years!

Claire_leggett_surface_pattern_design_calendar_NOV_2page_2016

I was short of a title idea then my daughter came up with “Eat, Sleep, Pattern Repeat – a year of painted patterns” – she is a genius!

Jan, Feb, March and April

Each month has a themed floral watercolour painted pattern design…

Claire_leggett_surface_pattern_design_calendar_FEB_2016 copy

and a date grid bordered by the same design – another credit to Lucy for that idea (it really is a family business here sometimes!)

May, June, July, Aug                                           

It is professionally printed on 250gsm card stock – a nice weight of paper to keep its shape all year and matte so you can write on it without icky, sticky, skiddy pen marks.

Claire_Leggett__Aug_calendar_2016_pattern_date_page copyThey are the same price as last year – £12.00

Claire_leggett_surface_pattern_design_calendar_APRIL_2016 copy

If you fancy one I have put some in my Etsy shop.

If you live in the UK you could pay by bank transfer maybe – that way I get to recoup as much of the costs as possible without having to pay fee’s – please email me at hello@claireleggett.co.uk and I’ll send the details.

If you live abroad – then using Paypal and Etsy is the way to go!

Pink Stripe which is still my favourite cup with all that loverly pink and gold,

Turquoise Teacup

and Turquoise Teacup whose a little, diddy baby cup.

***

£25/$39 each or all four for £80/$123.

Please email me at hello@claireleggett.co.uk saying what you’d like to buy and I will send payment details.

And I also made some packs of cards for my Christmas markets and have a few of each left. You can see what cards are in each pack by looking at the sheet tied onto the basket in the photo. Or look here for bigger images.

£10 for five large rectange cards (that’s £2 each) and £9 for five square cards (£1.80 each) all tied up with ribbon and tags. Postage is about £1.85 in the UK depending how many you take.

Again please email hello@claireleggett.co.uk if you’re interested because I don’t have time to photograph and update my Etsy page, so I’m just selling them off here.

Happy Monday, Claire x 🙂


1.2015 calendar Cover_flattened_CMYKI thought I’d do a proper ‘ta-da!’ post about the calendar I have designed for this coming year 2015.

November 2015_flattened_CMYK

I had so much fun painting images to use to represent each month, using colours that remind me of those months.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m a real stickler for buying a calendar with a week that begins with a Monday (unlike European calendars which begin with Sunday). I like to be able to see the week grouped together and the weekend days adjacent rather than split from the front of the week to the back.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So I had begun to look at 2015 calendars in the shop when the idea hit me that I could design exactly what I wanted.

December 2015_flattened_CMYK

The painting part is always fun. The WHOLE week I spent on the computer piecing it all together was only fun for a few days though!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But it was worth it – it always amazes me when something that you design on a computer gets printed and becomes a real 3D object.

August 2015_flattened_CMYK

It’s £12.00 and you can find it and all the details here in my Etsy shop which is ClaireLeggettArt. 
Or come along to tomorrows Moseley market and save on the postage 😉

It's open!

I’ve finally done it! Opened my Etsy shop good and proper 🙂

ClaireLeggettArt_Etsy_shop

It’s only taken me since Nov 2009 but here it is actually full of products to buy; Greetings Cards, Fine Art Giclee prints, painted notebooks, a couple of original paintings and my new 2015 calendar.

Like all these things, once you’ve done them, you wonder why it took so long in the first place but it has been a long journey learning how to get things done and then doing them!
