I love Helen Dardik's style of illustration, I have a number of prints on my wall at home. All purchased from her etsy store. In her blog, she is currently giving away these free gift tags to print and use to add a little colour-joy to your Christmas gifts. I think they are rather spectacular!
Sally doesn't necessarily make stuff, she's obsessed with the stuff other people make. Being "blessed" with her father's sausage like fingers (and one too many accidents involving children's scissors and clag), Sally was forced to abandon any ideas of a crafty creative future.
http://www.georgielove.com is her website. Georgie is her dog. Other than that, she is a 36 year old geek-girl mama who likes comics, animals, music, apple computers and the sofa. She has a good heart but some really bad dance moves.
