Last weekend I met the most wonderful artist - Clare Bloom. Clare is the designer of a wonderful whimsical range of stamps called Molly Blooms. Based on her children as they grew up Clare has captured the innocence and playfulness of childhood and with the beautiful accessories she has designed to compliment the figures the whole range is just gorgeous.
If you are new to Clare's work then I urge you to visit her blog. The colour palates she uses and the way she turns each card into a piece of art is wonderful so do stop by her blog here
My reason for posting the picture is I have just found the blog of a gorgeous little shop in Northallerton which I have visited with my lovely friends Joanne and Georgina. Georgina introduced me to these characters at Christmas and the shop is filled with the most gorgeous stamps and of course other stash to make beautiful art. Today I discovered not only is there a shop blog but this gorgeous candy too which is to be drawn on the 15th of May. If you would like a chance to win such a wonderful prize then do stop by The paper lane blog it could be you! Please let them know I sent you too!
