Well, shock horror it’s May, well pretty much June now, and this update is way overdue. There’s so much to say, and also not enough energy to say it all.
Things have been busy (aren’t they always?). I’m out with the band a lot, doing a concerning amount of admin which never seem to move forward, and I’ve been spending time hand painting some ceramics after a 2 year break. I've also got really into a game called 'June's journey' on my iPad, which isn't even that good, but I can't seem to stop. That, and also Suduko.
I met up with my dad sometime this year (I'm not good with dates or remembering things), who is still very proudly promoting my dog apparel.
I've had so many of you send me photos after buying a tattoo ticket and getting one of my designs tattoed on to your skin. I still have to pinch myself that this is a thing. You can get a tattoo ticket here.
Here are some of the ceramic bits fresh outta the kiln.
Items are coming out of the kiln as we speak, and I hope to do a big website update in the next month or two, once I’ve sorted it out and photographed everything. As well as dog mugs, I’ve done some owl mugs, pigeons, cats, and I even tried out some ghosts!

I’ve quietly, pretty much whsiper launched my patreon. Where I promise you zero content for £3.64 a month. I might surprise you (and myself) with some top secret delights. Who knows! Thank you to all 6 of you who have joined. :) If you'd like to be part of the least rewarding club there is, head here: https://www.patreon.com/MadebyHarriet
I’ve had a few emails asking about my new I AM UNCOMFORTABLE dog sweaters and tees. They are available here!
Keep an eye on my everpress shop as I’ve got some very special, limited run dog pride designs dropping this week! This design (below) is available here.
I am thrilled to have teamed up with Anna Rose Heaton for some new Made by Harriet photography! She has produced some beauties, and always sneaks in something which makes me laugh! I especially love the photos she sent over of my new dog tote bags, available in 3 designs:
Here's a blooper from the photoshoot - ahahahah
Doughnut and Sean Connery are keeping me busy, with a couple of trips to the vets, Sean Connery had ear mites (blergh) and Doughy had something bothering his ear, which wasn't mites. It seems a bit better now, perhaps it was sympathy ear. Here they are, looking like they are on an interview panel.
They've been getting on so well, and playing so nicely. Sean Connery is such a character! I've been teaching him to close the fridge this week.
And the curve ball this week, is POORLY FISH. There was a pond in our garden when we bought our house 7 years ago. I bought some teeny tiny koi years ago who are now VERY BIG and also now poorly, so I've spent the past 36 hours learning a lot and spending a lot to create a little quarantine pool to treat them in. I didn't know i could care about fish so much. I really hope they get better.
This week I found a sample tshirt design which I never ran with, but now I'm wondering if I should...?
There's probably more to say, but I'm so tired, and know if I don't post this, I never will.

Thank you for being here.
