Easter Competition - Egg + Soldiers by Ketchup on Everything


Now, don't get me wrong, I love chocolate, but I know that my little foxes will get loads of it for easter from the rest of the family, so, this year I have decided to get them an easter gift, instead of a chocolate egg.  They just don't need any more chocolate.

To be honest, this was the perfect excuse to replace their rather worn table mats with the beautifully illustrated melamine ones from the wonderfully talented Kay Vincent of Ketchup On Everything.  Having come across her designs online we met the ever cheerful Kay at Pulse last year.  


Her animal alphabet designs were the first thing to really catch my eye there and I loved them.  Kay was really friendly and fun and her personality, along with her obvious love of 50's an 60's children's illustrations, comes through in her designs.  She describes the animal alphabet design process on her blog;

"It was a really exciting project as it encouraged me to develop creativity within the restriction imposed by the letters of the alphabet and the requirement that each animal had to be doing something beginning with its letter. I never would have thought of a ‘Valentine Vulture' or a 'Scooting Squirrel' with out this thought process!"

And from these initial designs she now produces; placemats & coasters, tea towels, mugs, greeting cards, screen prints (I bought my daughter a wonderful Unicycling Unicorn) and now personalised name prints too, great for celebrating a new baby or birthday.


We have a super-eggciting competition to win one of Ketchup on Everything's Egg and Soldiers melamine placemats tote and a T-towel.

Just pop a comment at the bottom of this post, tell us what you're up to for easter and in our usual 'old skool' way (no rafflecopter for us) one of the little foxes will pick a name at random next week to receive this wonderful gift in time for easter.

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSE!

    1. Ditto to that, I always get a bit overexcited and then exhaust us all by the middle of the holiday.
