I’m excited to be @colintonmarket this afternoon with lots of other great brands! If you’re local to Edinburgh, get yourself down there to pick up lots of Christmas treats (I’ll have my chart prints, notebooks, Christmas cards and lots of other goodies!)

***drumroll*** Time for some snowflake spam! (Can I just say how overjoyed I am that people are enjoying the snowflake chat - thank you ❄️) ~ Stellar plate flakes are thin, plate-like crystals with six broad arms that form a star shape. Their faces are often decorated with elaborate, symmetrical markings. Plate snowflakes are quite common, usually occur around -2 degrees and make great snow for skiing!

This Sunday (1st Dec) I’m taking part in the @colintonmarket in Edinburgh. If you’re local (even if you’re not!) COME and say hello 👋🏻 ~ There will be loads of amazing makers selling their wares (swipe 👉 to see) and honestly, you could just tick Christmas shopping off the to-do list! Also, if you SHOP SMALL THIS CHRISTMAS you’ll be giving two gifts (one to the person and one to the business 😘)

Triangular crystals! How gorgeous are these wee guys? They have threefold symmetry rather than the usual sixfold but their molecules are still arranged in a hexagonal lattice. While they grow, for some unknown reason, the three prism edges grow faster than the others. ~ I’ve got two more snowflakes to tell you about and then regular posts will resume!

Next up is the prism snowflake! Do you know that no two snowflakes are the same? (eh 🤯……mind blown) Well, the prism is a snow crystal in its most basic form and this is how most snowflakes start out their life, before sprouting branches from their corners and forming more elaborate structures. These wee prism snowflakes can barely be seen by the naked eye! I bloody love snow, me.

It’s freezing outside so I thought I’d fill your feed up with some random snow facts! I love snow (controversial). A few years ago, I designed a common snowflake guide because I find them beautiful and quite mystical. ~ First up are ‘stellar dendrites’ and these are the most recognisable snow flakes. Their name comes from their star-shaped appearance and “dendrite" comes from the Greek for ‘tree'. They are large flakes so are easily spotted on your sleeve, especially if you're wearing dark fabric. They usually appear when the weather is really cold - about -15c.

If you’re passing through London Waterloo or London Bridge stations, you’ll find my 3D cards in the amazing @notonthehighstreet pop up shops! I’m delighted that my products have been selected and doesn’t the shop at Waterloo look amazing? 😍 (London Bridge pop up is open until 21st Dec and the Waterloo station pop up closes tomorrow evening) x

From watercolours > waves. Here is how my Earthbound range started to take shape. I’ve just restocked the @royalacademyarts with more of my winter sea giftwrap (and am still quite stunned 😳 to have my products stocked there!)

As we’ve waved goodbye to Halloween and Bonfire Night now, it seems only appropriate that I start talking about Christmas! My Bauhaus designs are proving super popular again this year and are available in assorted packs or individually. ~ 📷 by the lovely, amazing @hollyboothstudio

This lovely lady is Sarah Holmes who runs @pencilmeinshop in Elgin and she has just launched two workshops which I wanted to tell you, my lovely followers all about. I get a lot of questions on here about running a small business and pitching work to shops etc... Sarah has informally mentored me since I started Kate & The Ink and I’m so happy that we’re now friends. So her new ‘how to sell to shops’ workshop looks incredible and I just know I would have found this information invaluable at the beginning. If you’re in Scotland (even if you’re not), this will be well worth a trip for! The ‘goal setting’ workshop also looks amazing and it’s on the first Saturday of January (clever). Check out the details on @pencilmeinshop website - link via bio. ~ Very chuffed that some of my products feature in Sarah’s professional headshots too!

Just back from the west coast after a blissful week! One of my favourite parts of holidaying in remote Scotland is the lack of WiFi and mobile reception. Now we’re home I’m making an effort to PUT MY PHONE DOWN GODAMNIT (I know, I know, the irony of this Instagram post...) ~ So, aside from leaving my phone in the kitchen at night, what are your tips to keep your phone use in check?
