Bright lights in the dark sky as Edinburgh’s Christmas entertains

It’s that time of year when it’s dark going to work and dark coming home, that is unless you work in the centre of Edinburgh where the city’s Christmas lights brighten up the sky.


I’m sure many of you pass by this sign a couple of times a day, it is above the Jenners end entrance to St Andrews Square, currently unrecognisable as it is in full Festive mode. Inside you will find fair ground rides shows and market stalls for all the family, not to mention an ice rink around the Melville monument.


Definitely make time to visit if you can, and let Edinburgh’s Christmas put you in the festive mood! Also… be sure to pop in to Mimi’s Cake Cabin for some delicious treats and warming coffee.

This years first Christmas Market

EP_XmasMarketOn Saturday last I was at the Edinburgh Printmakers Christmas Market.

My first market of the festive period and a huge success. Great to meet new customers and fellow makers too. Bellow is a sketch from behind my stall, showing the extremely talented Sarah from One Of Three Designs who makes beautiful brooches, bags and patchwork cushions. Click the link below to see her work.


The scribbled character at the back is none other that Jenny Douglas, Edinburgh designer and printmaker. See the link below to look through her delightful designs, I particularly love the colourful coasters.


An not in the sketch  but to my right was the gifted Grace Moran, who I wholeheartedly recommend if you want a pet portrait, her acrylic likenesses are stunning, with so much character.


A great room to be in 🙂
