We're five years old! In May 2014 we stumbled into becoming an accidental greeting card publisher. To everyone that's accompanied us on this five year stint (and to those who were with us even before we became "a business") we'd just like to say...thank you. Not sure what to expect next from our five year old baby, but right now I'm just gonna eat some cake. Thanks!

For me, us and this we've a number of imminent anniversaries - aside from our half decade - and it's made me reflect on what this has been/should be about and how something can be so joyful and maudlin all at the same time. Ten years ago I set about illustrating the birds I was observing in the north of Scotland for my Mum, who lived almost 700 miles away on the south coast. She never got to see them, as two weeks later she got "that diagnosis" but struggled through with good grace for another twelve months. Those "sketches" were lost in a drawer for years. A decade on I've just stumbled upon another, unseen for years. So, this is really just to say...thanks mum, these were all for you, but you would have been so glad they've made other people smile too. Oh, and...TEN years! Blimey, that went quick...
