Phew! I've just spent the last two and a half days glued to my computer screen totally revamping my website and updating my other portfolio sites with new work. Boy, was there a lot to do. The problem with working on stuff 18 months before it's published it that the work on your site is always out of date! But, finally, it's all up there and hopefully selling me better.

I've created a new button/banner over there in the left hand sidebar for my own site, please do click though and take I look; I hope the new, larger thumbnails are clearer and that it's all nice and easy to navigate through.

I must now go and get away from my screen before my eyes go on strike!

Cheers me dears.

New Girl Crush

I've had these images sitting in an open tab on my browser for weeks now. I like to take a quick look at them every so often if I'm in need of a chuckle, but I think I really need to share them as they're really too lovely to keep to myself. This is Hilda:

This is the image that has made me totally fall in love with her. Quite honestly, that is my butt right there, and I'd love me a red onesie.

I came across Hilda, and her creator Duane Bryers, through some link or other, probably on Twitter, in this article here. Leaving aside her fabulous facial expressions, excellent taste in bikinis and gorgeous puppy pal, her history is very interesting. Plus, you know, she seriously makes me want to go back to being a redhead!

You can check out more Hildas in a gallery here, although this one is my favourite:

Gah, who am I kidding? They're all my favourites!

These Are a Bit Nice

Ten days ago, Sisters nos 1 and 2 went to the Harry Potter studio tour (again), and came back whispering tales of lovely new adult editions of HP they'd found in the shop there. What should pop up in my email inbox this morning but a link here to these:


Follow the link above to see the others. Some are available on Amazon now, the rest come out at the end of this month. I may just have to add these to my not-to-be-read-but-just-look-pretty-on-the-shelf collection of nice HP editions.
