Gangsta’s paradise

After taking a break in the Lakes over the summer holidays I’m back to it and happy to report that three more from my new Pooch Paradise collection are now available to buy online… This very random idea for a set of doggie ‘gangsta paradise’ designs came to me in the middle of the night…

Beagle Vibes Only

We’re feeling very chilled here at LEAPUP HQ, and so is Doug my beagle desk lamp, a custom order made by Horton & grimwood and those gorgeous crochet pots are by Pixie’s Magic Hook (both on Etsy). My beagle print is available to buy now 🌴🌴🌴


I’ve just returned from three days totally unplugged in the Lakes, with lots of walking and chilling. I didn’t take any technology or check my phone once. Bliss!

Feeling the Sunday chilled vibes 

We could all take a lesson from this beagle print now and again… stay chilled people 😎🌴 I’m actually really excited to share this print with you it’s another one from my tropical paradise collection. I’m now off for a little break in the Lakes and plan to take some of my own advice!  


Gorgeous Bracken the Springer Spaniel is feeling those chilled summer vibes. This is the latest giclee print from my new August 2017 collection. Can you tell I’m in need of a holiday? 🌴

Firstly, apologies, I’m real behind with LEAPUP blogs, lots has been happening but I ‘m not going to fit all my updates in here as there’s far too much to tell you. So, I thought instead I would post and say how much fun I’m having over on my Instagram account @LEAPUP I’ve joined in…

Happy Easter Weekend!

After what has felt like a roller coaster ride for the last couple of months on Etsy I’ve realised that all my eggs are in the one proverbial basket. It’s time to diversify so I’m REALLY excited to announce that this weekend I’m setting up a shop on Folksy. I have a discount code running…
