... 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

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.

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!
Happy New Year folks! Well rested and fed, I'm back and feeling inspired to create some new artwork (note my brand new whale shark print above, soon to be available online) and shake things about a bit. The month of January has me mulling over concepts like BRANDING and COHESION and TRUST and all sorts… Continue reading 2018, here I come
Before I treat myself to a well earned rest I wanted to thank everyone who reads my weird little blog, has bought something from me online or in person, who has even just got in touch to say they love my prawns! I started 2017 thinking I'd commit to fewer markets and focus more on… Continue reading Merry Christmas, everyone!

Hi, my name's Victoria and I love, I mean really LOVE, Christmas. So it will come as no surprise that I've been getting ready for the festive season sometime since July. Although this is not uncommon among makers and craft types (you've got to plan ahead, therefore are always thinking 3 months ahead) I love… Continue reading Trying to suppress festive urges
