My first blog post of 2019 is a weird one; in a nutshell, I won't be using this site to blog anymore. I've moved my online shop to here VictoriaDrawsShop and will be blogging all things business related over there. I will be using this site as an online portfolio for all the bits and… Continue reading A Change in the Tide
This year has been strange and bittersweet. I feel really proud of my business achievements, not least my 100 Days print which has already got me making plans for next years 100 days project on instagram. This print is of special significance to me as when I was half way through the project my father… Continue reading That’s it for 2018!
Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to visit me at Myddleton Road's Winter Fair a couple of weekends ago. This Saturday 15th December I'll be selling at Blue House Yard Christmas Market in Wood Green. There was a gorgeous community, kooky vibe at this market last year, and I know there'll be lovely food… Continue reading Next (and last) Christmas market!
I've been a busy bee during nap times and have a couple of rather lovely new Christmas card designs, if I do say so myself. These are for the dog and cat lovers out there, and will be followed by a collection of prints and non-festive cards. I'd like to think I'll be able to… Continue reading New Christmas Cards
... in a somewhat limited capacity! My online shops have reopened, and I'll be making regular outings via the Post Office in my pjs with the bab. I've increased my processing times a bit because, you know, mumming, but I am delighted to be able to take orders again.
A couple of weeks sooner than planned, but VictoriaDraws is officially closed for maternity leave. I'll be taking the rest of September to get to know the small human who will very soon be in the world, and opening online shops towards the very end of September or start of October. If you'd like to… Continue reading VictoriaDraws is on maternity leave
If you're following me on Instagram or Twitter (why not?! @victojeiro on both 😊) you'll know that yesterday I finally listed my 100 Things print on Etsy, available here -> https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/624904734/100-things-that-live-in-the-sea-limited?ref=shop_home_active_1 This limited edition print is the culmination of a few months work, and is made up of the 100 sea creatures I painted for… Continue reading 100 Things That Live in the Sea
Hello everyone! It is with horror that I realised today I haven't posted here since April. Few reasons for that - a close family bereavement and pregnancy hormones being the main ones. But I'm now officially on summer holidays and slowly getting back to some sort of real life. My summer markets were amazing this… Continue reading Hey, it’s been a while
It's no secret that I'm pretty keen on all things ocean-related, meaning that I, like millions of others, have been horrified by findings exposing the truth behind our plastic addiction and the devastating impact this has had on the world's oceans. I want to do something to help, not just in my personal life,… Continue reading Help me help the fish
Hopefully we've had the last of the unseasonable snow and we can all start getting excited for Spring. I'd like to be the first to say I am already STOKED for Spring and have been getting way overexcited at budding things and tiny flowers. Last weekend's Crafty NOLO Spring market at The Green Rooms Hotel… Continue reading Spring has sprung!
