Welcome to my 500th Post

Hello everyone this is my 500th post.

“Ooh!”  I hear you exclaim.

I suppose some people knock 500 posts out in a month but I think it’s probably taken me about three and a half years.   Like most things I do writing these posts have been a bit of a slow burner.  I have been extremely pleased to introduce you to many creatures here and proud to start the 3 Word Wisdom Project.

To coincide with my 500th post I have now opened an Etsy Shop selling my handmade illustrations as well as some prints here and there.

etsyshopfrontAnd to celebrate the opening of the shop I am offering a FREE give-away.

The first person to get a friend to sign up for my newsletter on the front page of my website and email me: appottingjr@gmail.com to say they have done so can choose any product from my Etsy Shop and I will post it off to them as a FREE GIFT.

Thanks for all your support over the past 3 year everyone.

I’m on Facebook…if you love that kind of thing.

kemptown110th

I’m not a mad keen user of Facebook but I do know people love it and it’s ever such a good resource to keep in touch.  So, if you love Facebook, you can see all I post there by liking My Page.  If you’re not a big fan and Twitter’s your thing you can follow me there or receive an email each time I post on wordpress by signing up to my  Blog Posts.

I do love receiving real post, not just posting on the web, so if you like to keep it old Skool too get in touch with me at the studio:

AP Potting: 69 Sussex Street, Brighton, BN2 0GQ.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Visiting the studio today..

Bee the wonder dog has popped (almost wrote pooped – which she has, thankfully, not done) into the open studio today.

She is very excited to see me, of course.
