Pintastic



I find it really interesting to think about where my cushions and prints and things end-up... who they belong to and their place in their new homes.

So- today I set myself the task of making a reminder of the things that I've made that have left the studio for new owners near and far. I do love a good pin-board (If you've not already followed me on the wonderfully addictive Pinterest, you can do so now!) so I set about a black cork-board with some Sharpies and Posca Pens to come up with my very official Nikki McWilliams Sales Map.

Each pin represents a country or state that I have sent some of my things to and probably the areas of the world that appreciate a biscuit or two!

Thanks Lucy!

Sandra said...

Love it! Hopefully the map will soon be covered up completely with pins!!!

Nikki McWilliams said...

Fingers crossed Sandra! There's something quite satisfying about placing a pin in a map!

Cat said...

Fab! Such a nice way to keep track of exciting sales :)

Nikki McWilliams said...

Thanks Cat! No pins in a good few continents yet...I've got work to do! :-P

Love it! I'd totally buy one if you were to make them to order...
On a slightly sadder note, the other half knocked our 'A Home Full of Teacakes is a Happy One' picture off the wall today with his cumbersome drumkit and cracked the frame :-( I'm in a proper huff.

Thanks Vixie!

@Easy OsyCosy- that is sad news! However- I saw today that M&S have a 20% OFF sale on all of their homeware- they do the same frames as I used for that collection of drawings: http://bit.ly/pJJMsU

Hope that helps!

Oh no! now I'm tempted to stitch a world map pin board. I'm always fascinated by some of the unusual place names too. I could see it getting out of control as I'd keep stitching random things on it!!! Must resist urge.

Thanks Nikki! Got a new one ordered. Less huffy now!
