Rule Britannia!

Sunday, 26 February 2012

I hope you all had a good weekend, I have been busy the past couple of weeks getting my illustrations together for one of my new collections 'Rule Britannia' seen as 2012 is this year to be proud to be British! I wanted to create a range that reflected some of the iconic images of Britannia, and some of my favorite things. The ideas were endless.... and I have had trouble deciding where stop! I have some great ideas for these illustrations and will be working in lots of new mediums and hopefully broadening Jodie Anna's range to homewares, Greeting cards and prints.

These are just a few of the illustrations I have been working on, I hope you like them! and will keep you posted on their progress.

Part 1 Jodie Anna is getting hitched! Harrogate vintage wedding fair

Wednesday, 22 February 2012


Well as you can tell by the title I'm getting hitched! me and my partner have been engaged for a few years now and decided it was about time we tied the knot. So seen as I love all things vintage and handmade! it only seems natural that the two will be very prominent on our wedding day. So I thought I would blog my ideas and Journey to my wedding day!

On Sunday we attended the Harrogate Vintage wedding fair, we went a couple of years ago but there was so much more stuff this time... I came out buzzing with ideas and wanting so many things.... not good! Paul (of Stott and Atkinson) my lovely husband to be took some great images of the event.

Vintage weddings have become increasingly fashionable recently which means there are so many possabilities .... and I will have to get my thinking cap on for new ideas!

It's been too long!

It has been a while since I last blog but with a massive rush at Christmas and then been poorly I have got a little behind with everything! So I am slowly getting back to myself.

I have lots of new exciting projects coming up, One of the biggest changes to Jodie Anna is..... that all my items are going to be laser cut, it was a big decision as I was worried that having my items laser cut would take away the handmade side of my items but I have had my samples back and they look great! .... well I think they do. It makes my pieces look much sharper and pristine. I am also working on two new collections that I hope will be ready soon and fingers crossed by mid March Jodie Anna will be re-launched with new packaging and new laser cut items! all very exciting.

But if you can't wait to for a sneak peek of my new collections I will have some items with me at the following fairs, International women's day on the 4th of March at the Queens hotel Leeds.

This going to be a great event so if you are in the area please pop in.

Another fair I will be attending, which I always love been apart of is the Reet Sweet Fairs, March will see Reet Sweet return to the Millennium galleries in Sheffield a great venue and a great day out.

I have lots of exciting bits going on but will leave these for my next post, just one more bit of exciting news me and my boyfriend.... well Fiance finally booked our wedding! yeah so lots of posts about my projects for this.
