Illustrated Advent 2015 – Day 17

Apologies but I'm a bit behind with my blog postings, so it's a double post for the Illustrated Advent 2015 today!  Day 17's  prompt was Hot Chocolate and I loved drawing this one, in fact I'm really enjoying doing all of these!  I mentioned over on Instagram that I was always an Adobe Illustrator kind of girl but this year I've been using … [Read more...]

Illustrated Advent 2015 – Day 7

It's going to be a double posting today as I'm a little behind with the Illustrated Advent 2015 - Day 7 but I hope you won't be disappointed!  Day 7's prompt was Snowman so I decided to go with a rather dapper looking chap all dressed up and ready to hit the town for his Christmas night out!  I'm also out tonight for my yearly 'self-employed … [Read more...]

Illustrated Advent 2015 – Day 5

Illustrated Advent 2015 day 5 by Rebecca Stoner

Happy weekend! It's day 5 of the Illustrated Advent 2015 and today's prompt was Greeting, so I chose to illustrate the word Joy!  It's starting to gain momentum now and lots of other designers are starting to take part.  You can see all the different designs on Instagram using the hashtag #illustratedadvent2015 or by following each individual … [Read more...]

Happy New Year 2015!

Happy New Year Blog Post by Rebecca Stoner

I could't let the end of the year go by without popping on here and wishing you all a very Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish each and every one of you love, health, happiness and success for 2015.  I can't wait to properly get back at my desk (does that make me sad?!) and start putting into action all the exciting … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 23, 24 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

It's Christmas Eve you lovely people! How are you all doing? I finally feel like I've finished for the holiday now. Work all done, presents wrapped and not much more to do now than share my #adventchallenge2014 post for yesterday and today! I've loved taking part in the challenge and how it's pushed me to create a new design a day but what I've … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge – Days 20, 21 and 22!

Advent Challenge 20, 21, 22 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Happy Monday!  I can't believe it's only 3 days to go and I've still been getting orders in my shop and have a little design work still to do!  However,  I am managing to sneak out for a 'works Christmas cuppa' later this morning with my lovely friend who also works for herself.  I'm exhausted and sooo ready to finish for Christmas now.  How are … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 18 & 19

Advent Challenge 18, 19 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Naughty me missed a day and now I'm behind!  I've had a really busy week in my shop which is great but trying to work and pack orders with a bandaged finger has really slowed me down, so I had to let go yesterday (as hard as it was to do!) and not post my design.  So it's two for the price of one today, with both days 18 and 19 in one post.  I've … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 17

Advent Challenge 17 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Day 17 and I'm managing to keep up with the Advent Challenge....just!  Today's theme is 'Frozen' and every time I hear this word I think of my little 2 year old niece singing the Frozen song at the top of her voice and running round the room shouting "let it go, let it go"!  She'd be most disappointed I've not drawn anything to do with the film but … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 16

Advent Challenge 16 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

I loved creating today's design for the Christmas #adventchallenge2014, which is Gingerbread House.  I really had fun with it and although it's not exactly 'Ginger' (a Designer's got to stick with her colour palette right?!) I think it looks quite yummy!  It's a good job I was organised with this one yesterday as we had a bit of a drama last … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 15

Advent Challenge 15 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Monday again and Day 15 already!  I'm starting to struggle to keep up.  I'm busy juggling a big freelance project, Etsy orders and then trying to sneak in some Christmas advent designing......not to mention I still need to write my cards or do any Christmas shopping....just don't tell anyone!  I've done some pretty star Garlands for today's theme - … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 14

Advent Challenge 14 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

I really struggled with today's theme which is Favourite Christmas Colour!  I'm not good at picking my favourite colour at the best of times as I love so many colours and working with them all day makes it really hard to have a favourite....or is that just me?!  So for Day 14 of the Advent Challenge I decided to create a box full of colourful … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 12

Advent Challenge 12 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Happy Friday!  We're now half way through the Christmas Advent Challenge, hurrah!  Today's theme is Christmas Fairy and as I've had a sudden flurry of Christmas orders in my Etsy shop and a last minute freelance commission come in, I'm cheating a little again today.  This is my Angel/Fairy from my Christmas Cards which has flown it's way onto Day … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 11

Advent Challenge 11 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Day 11 and two weeks today to the big day people!  Don't panic though as I've not even written my cards, bought any pressies or put my tree up!  I know! Although we don't  normally put our tree up until the week before Christmas and I'm usually quite last minute with cards and pressies so it's not so unusual.  I don't actually have that many … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 10

Advent Challenge 10 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Ok, so is anyone getting bored of the Christmas Advent Challenge because we've a long way to go yet! I really hope you're not but please do tell me if you are and I can condense the postings into less blog posts if you prefer.  Hopefully this one will make you smile because today's theme is Christmas Jumper!  I remember my Dad used to have a red … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 9

Advent Challenge 9 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Brrrrr it's a very cold and frosty one here this morning but beautiful none the less.....well at least I'm sure it will be once the sun comes up!  It's a very early start for me this morning so good job I was prepared and created my little 'Nutcracker' soldier last night for today's theme!  I couldn't stop smiling to myself when I was drawing this … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 7

Advent Challenge 7 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

A week of advent madness gone by already! I'm really hoping I can keep up but today and yesterday have taken some doing!  Today's theme is Winter Wonderland and I cheated a little bit on this one as I resurrected parts of an old design which I always liked but wanted to update.  So here's my take on Winter Wonderland.  What do you think? … [Read more...]

Advent Challenge 2014 – Day 5

Advent Challenge 5 - Blog Post - Rebecca Stoner

Day 5 and I've created a (not so little!) friend for my cute little penguin from yesterday.....a Snowman!  Today's theme was 'Snow Creature' and I kind of went with the obvious as I was short of time but I quite like him.  I did have his smile made up of little pebbles but my husband thought he looked a bit sinister, so I quickly gave him a bit of … [Read more...]
