Warm Wishes for 2014 & a whopping 35% off appreciation sale!

For myself and for so many of my dear friends, colleagues and lovely acquaintances, 2013 was an unbelievably taxing year: full to the brim with seemingly insurmountable challenges, heartbreaks and financial strain. But we toughed it out, and with strong spirits, good friend and much determination we've made it through to the other side.

Here I raise a glass to you fine folks: for your support, feedback, enthusiasm and patronage, all of which make it possible for me, and all of those that I work with, to pursue our dreams. For this I am immensely grateful. Here's to a new year beaming with hope, promise and potential. May it bring a Renaissance of creativity, collaboration, joy and prosperity for us all.

With so much love and appreciation,
your Curious Curator Kat xo

A celebration of Autumn 

The smell of damp leaves underfoot, acorns dotting gentle green amongst the clouds of rusty red, gold and fiery orange. Half-barren branches bow under the summer's bounty of black and red berries, rose hips and nuts.

Squirrels scamper, chattering, gathering for the winter; foxes slink through forest paths, near silent but for the gentle padding of their paws.

As twilight approaches, the owls gather to lay guard over the evening, surveying the woodland below.
