A bit out of character

I have just done something that may seem to be completely out of character.  I just finished a new design with a rather, umm, risque sort of theme.  Now, before I show you a sneak peek, I think this might require a little bit of explanation. It all began in the UK one day in …

The problem with being a creative

Things have been busy here at Bravewood, as usual. How could life be otherwise? The kids are all busy, Spring is just around the corner, so all of Nature is starting to bustle with activity after the lull of Winter.

It's a woolly life: what's happening

I’m going to be tote-woolly (bad pun) honest.  I started writing this blog post yesterday and then realized that I was just rambling about pretty much nothing, so I decided to delete it and start over again, because, you know, I could go on and on about all of the things going on, but it …
