I’ve just added a little texture to my latest Mammy cards. This one has a funny story behind it. I sent a preprint copy to my daughter, Dara, saying “what do you think? I used part of your jumper for this”. The reply I got was “OMG! WHAT JUMPER?!!” I thought it was too small but still, there’s only a small part of it missing …
Fabulous Frog made headlines this week in the Connaught Tribune. I’m delighted with this article, which captures the essence of my work these days. Thank you to Judy Murphy for taking the time to compile this wonderful piece.
All of my greeting cards are printed on FSC Certified Paper which guarantees environmental and social responsibility.

I’ve just added more animals to my ‘Save the World’ range of greeting cards. Piglet, Donkey and the Elephant. I’m passionate about this range and its underlying message about saving the planet and awareness of the animals who will also be impacted yet have no voice.
These greeting cards come with an eco friendly brown craft envelope. Here is Zebra and Orangutan.
I’m currently working on my new ‘Save the World’ Collection of images. So far, I have this lovely Panda as well as a whale and a penguin. The originals are hand drawn and painted in watercolour. I’m hoping to find a wildlife charity that I can donate part of the proceeds to – still waiting to hear back from the World Wildlife Foundation.
I hope you like them … more to follow.
A full range of Christmas cards featuring the characters from Catherine’s children’s book ‘The Christmas Reindeer who saved the World‘ is now available. Milo, the lovely seal and Santa are now appearing on greeting cards.
A gift pack of the Christmas book along with four of the featured Christmas cards can now be purchased for €20. The book is great fun and has an underlying theme of protecting our environment and reducing plastic. The perfect Christmas gift for small children. For more information, click here.
This is the story of a magic reindeer named Milo, who saves the world from plastic. Milo asks Santa to help tell the world about the plastic in our seas. This is a lovely story for small children all about Santa, his elves, local mermaids and Milo.
This story is fun and lighthearted but also has a very relevant message. The time has come to change our thinking about plastic. We are passing on this world to our children. It’s time for us all to pull together.
The inspiration for Milo the reindeer came from the true story of a wooden reindeer who went missing over Christmas from Kinvara in 2016 and was found in a field in Kinvara a week later, following a nationwide appeal.
I’ve just launched a new collection of ‘as gaeilge’ illustrated greeting cards. I had fun designing them and I think my favourite is the beetle card, ‘aithníonn ciaróg, ciaróg eile’ – literally meaning ‘one beetle recognises another beetle’. In other words ‘it takes one to know one’. Another of our lovely Irish sayings.
I hope you enjoy this collection.
The lovely Ray D’Arcy spoke about my new Christmas book on his show on 7 November 2017. Really delighted that he not only liked the book but that his son loved it too.
Fair play to national radio presenters giving small businesses a shout out. It makes such a difference and makes it all worthwhile.
