Pocket Carnival's come a long way, baby. From selling hand-felted purses way back in 2006, to the current range of greeting cards and party supplies I sell now, there's been a lot of innovation, illustration and hard work.
Being one with difficulties letting go, I didn't want to let my old illustrations just disappear, so decided to turn some of the ones I no longer sell or use into free downloadable colouring sheets.
My 2 + 4 year old nieces have carefully pre-tested them for you and they get 4 crayon-covered cute little thumbs up.
Download them here; feel free to share, but of course please do not sell these images, and always acknowledge Pocket Carnival as the source.

What's better than regular tape? Need a hint? Glitter tape!
Glitter tape is new to the Pocket Carnival store - it's a thick sticky tape, you cut off as much tape as you need, peel off the adhesive backing and stick away!
There's lots of different colours - so far I've been using it to package Pocket Carnival orders, decorate envelopes and padded mailers, and glitter up birthday gifts.
Stay tuned for a couple of fun projects!
And get yo' glitter here.
(PS: check out Pocket Carnival on Facebook!)

In the background you can also see the vintage map that Chris and I had printed onto canvas and then stretched onto a frame - it took us awhile to decide upon artwork to go next to our kitchen (or indoor plant) table, but I love this one. This map is from 1744 and I love that entire sections of the world are mere guesses, that Australia was as yet uninhabited by the West.
Gardenworld, plus I was gifted one by my mum. Lucky!
So far they're going really well, as with the majority of indoor plants I keep them in a sunny spot (but not direct sun), water them once per week, and watch them grow.
Check current developments as my plants grow, leaf by leaf, on Instagram.
