New product on Redbubble: cloth face masks

work-27373674-mask Followers of this blog (hello!) will probably know that I have had a little shop on Redbubble for some time now. They emailed me in the last few weeks to say that they had added a new product on Redbubble – cloth face masks. These are masks designed for use in public, and would not be appropriate in a medical setting.

I feel a bit weird about the idea of making money from a crisis like CORVID-19. However, Redbubble have pledged that for every face mask bought they will donate one to the charity Heart to Heart international, which is an NGO that is working with partners internationally to distribute equipment needed in the fight against CORVID-19. I thought I would upload a few of my designs onto these face masks to support that.

Most of the designs I have are not particularly appropriate for face masks, and with a new baby I’m not in a good position to make anything new right now. However a few years ago I made a few pieces of paper cut art that were completely comprised of paper cut flowers. I was pleased with these and these were among my first designs on Redbubble. They aren’t particularly popular (although I don’t sell a huge amount of my art so it’s actually difficult to tell), but I have now added face masks to the available products here. If you were thinking of buying a mask you may want to take a look at these, and if you don’t like my designs there are many, many other wonderful designs on Redbubble to choose from.

I also make art. You can see things with my designs on at my shop here. Could even treat yourself if you wanted to. Just saying. If buying art is not your thing, but you would like to support what you see I also have a Patreon Page here.

A late Valentine’s card

I wanted to make a little update, I’m trying to get back to more regular postings, but still struggling a bit with feeling tired and fitting everything in. We managed to move house just before Christmas and have generally been trying to tidy up and sort out things for the baby. We are organised I think, in a haphazard kind of way. I am super close to my due date now and doing quite a bit less than I thought I would be doing at this point of time. However I did manage to make this valentines card for Mr Magpie.

I am interested in what people think of this design? I rather like it and am wondering if I should tidy it up a bit and make it available in my online shop? What do you think?
