My absolute favourite birthday present when I turned 30 back in July was from Fiona, who drew an illustration of me incorporating a few – ok lots – of my favourite things.
There are dresses, books, baking, wool, mushrooms, leaves, pencils, tea, all manner of sewing references, cats (uh, a seal!) and much more in there. It really means so much to me because it’s made just for me and I know no one has the same thing anywhere in the world. How special is that?!
Fi started doing personalised illustrations a couple of years ago when our grandma asked her to draw a birthday card for our auntie’s birthday. She’s a keen gardener, and Fi was sure to add all these little details into the design.
Here’s a few of the other commissions she’s done recently…
