My one year anniversary...

Sunday (1st July) is the first anniversary of my Patreon!

So this is a long post from me, you know how I love those but in all honesty it's how I know to express myself.

I had seen other artists branch out onto the Patreon platform for a while and I had no idea what it was about or why I should do it. Mr B had just been made part time redundant and we needed to support our family with his loss of earnings so I thought I would give it a go and see what happens. One year on I am still creating unique content over there. I now have 34 (at time of writing) Patreons and I can't thank you enough for all of your support whether you are on the $2 tier or the $10 tier - you all mean the World to me because you help me to keep doing what I love and that is making art and creating content for you guys both on Patreon and YouTube (for free because, well, yeah YouTube just doesn't pay out any more :() and feed my family. What I earn from Patreon or any of the products I sell literally feeds my family. Jon pays (most) of the bills and I supplement the rest with my little shop and my creative endeavours. So to thank you and to maybe encourage you to come over and join in I thought I might offer a little giveaway! So.... if you would like to enter please come over to the Mrs Brimbles Happy Place on Facebook!

In this video I show you how I created a journal page about my garden. I used my "In the Garden" collection which is available here:

June Plan with me!

Happy June, everyone!

This month I was inspired by 2 older Brimbles sticker kits that I had leftovers from and I have to say, they go pretty nicely together. The two kits in question are the Cats in Bloom and September Garden kits, which both feature lovely neutrals and muted colours.

June is the start of Winter here in the Southern hemisphere... but I might be in a bit of denial, going with such a Spring-y themed month. I can't help it, though, I love the colours and the personalities of the little cat stickers, which just inspire such a sense of whimsy.

(And who said thematic planning has to happen all the time - or ever? Go with what you love, right?)

I hope this layout inspires you to go back to all the leftover stickers you have lying around. See what you can mix and match into something brand new and fun!

As always, if you're looking for more planner inspiration, check out my Youtube channel, or head on over to Instagram and say hi!

Until next time, planner friends, have a wonderful day!

Unicorn Sky...

Hi Guys!

Here is a reveal of the July 2018 Brimbles Box for you! Back by popular demand are my unicorn and cloud illustrations from February 2016! You begged for them to come back so I am happy to oblige. This time I have added more artwork and new products so we have a bit of a twist and if you are still hoarding the unicorns from back then these will coordinate perfectly for you! Don't forget to SIGN UP for your BOX SUBSCRIPTION by end of 30th June if you would like to start your subscription with the 'Unicorn Sky' box. Boxes will ship by the end of the first week of July. Of course it will be available for general sale on 1st July but a subscription is cheaper especially if you are international wink wink! The Brimbles box is only £18 per month including postage wherever you are in the World.

Much Love
Anna xx

MAJOR REDUCTIONS on lots of products and brands. Seriously some are more than 50% off!!! Can I tempt you?

Make self care top of your to do list!

If you missed out on what was an amazing and inspiring event run by Rachel of EllieBeth Designs UK Ltd don't worry I vlogged it. A lot of it! Well the talks in full. There were some very powerful and helpful messages that I am sure others who weren't able to attend the event will be able to benefit from. Maybe it will tempt you to attend a meet up next year. I love them and get very inspired by attending them so let's hope so. It is long so be warned...grab a cuppa first or pause and come back etc. I tried to sort the volume out so hope it's OK!

An English Garden

I have another collection to show you!

So I was sat in my garden and looked around and thought I must journal about how lovely the garden looks right now. So I took some photos and then the inspiration fairy said "why not turn these into a collection".

So I did and here it is lol! This collection is available to purchase now as either a Brimbles Box or individual items.

Browse the collection at:

Plan With Me! Dreamer of Dreams

I don't very often share these types of videos but I thought I would just turn the camera on whilst I added loads of stickers to my planner lol!

I used the Dreamer of Dreams and the Wild at Heart Collection from my shop.

Updates to stickers!

Hey peeps!

Just to let you know that I’ve made some changes to my stickers...

1. On my functional sticker sheets I’ve changed the icons so they are chunkier and therefore bolder and easier to see

2. I’ve added a couple of different icons and made some more obvious or more universal

3. On the planner box stickers I’ve added appointments instead of all the plain strips

4. All stickers now have different paper! I’ve found better paper, more expensive paper so I’ve switched (and I’m actually switching again next month as I’ve found even better!).

I hope you like the new and improved stickers, I certainly do. I'd love to know what you think!

June Collage Sheets

Have you ever wondered what my Patreon is all about and what I create over there for my Patreons?

Like a lot of artists, part of my Patreon package is collage sheets and I thought I would show you the collage sheets that my Patreons will be receiving in June 2018 so you can have a look, see what I have been creating this month and if this is the sort of thing that could perhaps be for you (please bear in mind that the art in the collage sheets and the number of collage sheets vary each month but this is fairly typical).

If you like what you see why not join in the fun or just follow me on Patreon for my Patreon only updates (updates are free). You can find me at:

Thank you to my current Patreons who are supporting me as this helps me to be able to create more content for you free on my YouTube channel. Big, Big love xx
