{ The Sunday Post } Looking to 2017

Good morning,

Can you believe there's only 5 more Monday's until Christmas? Which means there is only 6 more Monday's until the start of 2017! (Goodness me!)

One thing I would love to explore more in 2017 is wedding stationery using my venue stitches. The lovely couple would received a stitched portrait of their wedding venue and then I would create wedding stationery from the stitch.





I would love to know do you prefer the normal greeting cards style wedding stationery or so you like the post card style? I'm in the very early stages of thinking about this so would love any information or ideas!


Remember there's still time to order your house and venue portrait in time for Christmas If you would like more information please email me at hello@mayidesign.co.uk or fill in the contact form on the right hand side and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Each stitch comes in a simple black frame which measures 27.5 cm x 22 cm and the mounted picture measures 17 cm x 12 cm. Prices start from £35 + postage and packaging.


See you soon

{ The Sunday post } Barcelona

Good afternoon,

This week me and my chap took a last minute trip to Barcelona. We booked it Tuesday morning and flew out that evening! (Totally unlike me that likes to plan and prepare for everything!) We stayed in Mataro which was about 30 minutes outside Barcelona centre. It was lovely as it was right by the beach, had a lovely little town but also a lot quieter than Barcelona centre so was just perfect.


One of the reasons I wanted to go to Barcelona was to see Gaudi's architecture. We were meant to go for a walking tour to see all the buildings but the day before we had done a different tour and I was all walked out! So we moseyed around at a more leisurely pace...




Two of the buildings were having work done the Cathedral and one other that we couldn't see at all as it was all covered up!

Barcelona wasn't completely what I expected, I thought there was going to be beautiful architecture everywhere but in actual fact if you didn't look up I think you would miss it, as the shop fronts were all quite modern and then the flats above had the gorgeous balconies, windows and shutters.






Luckily Mataro had loads of beautiful doors and windows at ground level that I could photograph more easily!



I will be popping more photographs on my Instagram and there is a couple of videos of Gaudi's Architecture on my facebook if you would like to have a look.

Since I went away I got lots of house portrait orders and enquires, I think maybe I should go away more often!

I best crack on, have a lovely Sunday
