(I won’t have a stall at this month’s market but can assist if you need anything just PM me 😊)
Getting back into the swing of things with Good drawing session Friday on Pearse Street 🤗 takes place this Wednesday at 6.45pm at Barlow House
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year. In 2023, I will be marking my first full year in business. THANK YOU to everyone that has made this possible and keeping me in business. I will always be grateful that you put your trust in me with your art and design needs.
2023 also marks my first year with the Medical Missionaries of Mary, a team that I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of. It was an honour to be a part of the new MMM events this year; including the MMM craft fair and taking part in the MMM "Steps for Hope" challenge - which we will we doing again this coming Lent!
Also thank you to all that bought my art, designed greetings cards, coasters, prints and bookmarks this year and to the Cottage Market, Academy Books and Five Good Things Cafe for the trade opportunities.
And that’s a wrap for the year! Thanks to everyone that came to the markets this year, all the visitors, friends and family and your support, it was amazing ☺️
I’ve a few more bits left if anyone is looking for anything for Christmas but everything is getting tidied away this week so If you need anything now is the time to get in touch 😊
Thanks again 🎅🏼🎄🧑🏻🎄
Thank you to everyone that stopped by today 🥰 Tomorrow is the last day of the market and my last market of the year! If you want to visit the market it is on in the old Next unit in Scotch Hall tomorrow from 10-6pm.
Today’s market had so much variety and I’m really happy to say I picked up a few bits for my own Christmas shopping 🤗

Three tier wooden prints. Laurences Gate, Millmount and Old Abbey. They take a good bit of time to make so I’ll just have a limited amount of them with me at the @cottagemarketdrogheda tomorrow. #drogheda #cottagemarket #cottagemarketdrogheda #millmount #handmade #irishlocal #irishhandmade #irishmade #irishcraft #oldabbey #drawda #louthtourism
Putting the top coat on these coasters for the Cottage Market on Saturday 6th August. Hope to see you there! 🤗🌞
Just did my draw, with one hand holding the phone and the other picking a winner 😂 @Suzanne Tuite your name came out! Congratulations!
Gluing, sticking, cutting, painting, carving, weeding, it’s all happening this week!! Will be at the Busi Boutique market in Dunshaughlin on Sunday if anyone’s in the area. Please note I will have very little “Drogheda” related items with me so if you’re looking for coasters etc and you will be there let me know and I’ll bring them with me! 😊 Hopefully see you there 👍🏻
First pub of the year! Any guesses on where it might be? 🙃 Hint it’s not in Drogheda but it’s near Drogheda 😉 #drawing #drawings #drawingtimelapse #drawingsketch #irish #irishpub #thatchedroof #irishart #irishartist #artprogress #artinprogress #louth #louthart #drogheda
This was my first time making a 3 tier version of these wooden boards. This wall hanging requires no framing, 3 pictures in one! Very fiddly to string up though as you can see from the video and my fiddly hands 🤪
A jewellery box that I hand customised and decorated. Hoping to do some more of them in time for the Christmas markets! #irishcrafts #irishchristmasmarkets #jewellrybox #boxdesign #decoupage #decorating #crafting #craftingfun #irishmarket #trinketbox #painting #varnishing
Finishing off Christmas card imagery and designs and hope to have them ready 1st November. 🤞🏻Watch this space! Also made this animation in after effects and I am still terrible at using it 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 #designerlearning #xmas2021 #irishchristmascards #workinprogress #christmas2021 #christmascards #craftmarket

One minute you’re crawling along and next thing you’re flying. Well he will be when he’s a butterfly 😂🐛🦋 I took him off the table and put him into the grass and two days later there he was again, what a resilient little character! 😊 #slowprogressisstillprogress #cocoon #butterflyinprogress #irishnature #irishart #caterpillar #slow #crawlingalong
