Viva summer!

WOW. It’s June 1st, WHERE is this year going?

With young kids (or maybe all kids) the days just sort of roll into one another and time passes in a happy/chaotic/mental blur. I never seem to know what date it is.

So the start of the month is often marked by our local monthly magazine Viva Lewes thwacking on to the doormat, to inform Lewesians of what’s new, now and nearly upon us.

Viva Lewes, June 2014, cover by Leigh Hodgkinson

The cover has me in the mood for summer. Combined with the weather this past weekend and general cacophony of fun drifting up on the air from Pells Pool (which we’re lucky to be able to hear from our garden) I’m now RIGHT up for summer arriving RIGHT NOW.

This month’s flower-filled cover is by Leigh Hodgkinson, a children’s book illustrator (who I happen to know!) who lives in Lewes. I wrote a post last summer about a great workshop that she hosted as part of the Bags of Books summer party.

I still remember thinking that she was nails because she did this full on puppet-making crafty session, complete with bits and bobs she had cut out by hand for, like, a million children to stick on to puppet shapes that she had also cut out and sewed herself – all on about three hours’ sleep thanks to her baby son.

I’m Kate, a copywriter, brand consultant and editor who creates messages that are clear and clean. I create these for brands and agencies both big and boutique, in areas including design, homes and interiors, travel, fashion, lifestyle, beauty, food, and kids and families. I believe clear, clean messages bolster brands and businesses. They evoke emotion and ignite inspiration, and when written well, they’re easier to absorb – and respond to. I live in Copenhagen and am half-English, half-Danish. I write as comfortably in American English as in British, and behind the scenes I'm also studying Danish. Need help getting your message out?
