new collage – olivia purvis of what olivia did

collage of olivia purvis by laura redburn
i can imagine quite a few people already know who this is. if not (and you missed the title) it’s the beautiful olivia purvis of what olivia did. olivia is one of the most genuinely lovely people ever, and as soon as i decided i wanted to illustrate some of my favourite bloggers, she was right up there. want to learn a little more about her? i did an interview with olivia last year.

if you want to know what she’s wearing: hat  – h&m /top – mango / skirt – minkpink / bag – lola and me

did you miss last weeks collage? it was pink haired babe kailey from mermaidens. next up is fritha of tigerlilly quinn!


2 year giveaway

please don't leave me to remain - collage by laura redburn

from the beginning of march this year i have been blogging constantly/consistently for two years. that’s pretty awesome. i have been blogging on and off for years, but when i made an intentional decision to start blogging more (whether that being sharing my work or my life) i never knew i’d still be going 2 years later.

i feel so lucky that i’ve never lost the love for it and i don’t see it fading any time soon either. i blog about what *i* want, so that is largely my driving force. you’ll always be seeing lots of colour and creativity here.

anyhow, i didn’t actually realise this anniversary up until a week or so ago. i’d planned to do a giveaway when i reached 2 years on the dot but uh, well, i forgot!

so here it is now. a little giveaway to thank my readers – old and new. you can win: 2 a5 prints and an a6 notebook of your choice from my shop, a set of helen dardik stickers and cat patch donated by fritha of tigerlillyquinn and a lovely brooch donated by viktorija of andsmile. to enter, use the rafflecopter widget below.
