14.10.13 My Weekend: Sarah Yewman

christmas family cooking

Sarah Yewman is mum-to-three, wife-to-one and the ‘oldest-intern-in-town’, at Templar Publishing.  She is the creative genius behind the Davina McCall Dudebox creation, author & illustrator of childrens picture books  and artist / peg person painter extrordinaire.  She writes her blog about her ongoing creative exploits – The Yewman Projects.

My weekend starts with our first fire of the season. (You’ve gotta class Friday night as the start of the weekend!) I’ve happily succumbed to the wood-burning stove.

At this time of year a weekend wouldn’t be a weekend for us, without a Saturday morning on the sidelines of a muddy football pitch.

I love the winter, wrapping up warm, lots of layers, cosy fires and not forgetting plenty of comfort food. Talking of which, dare I mention the ‘C’ word?

Christmas might be a swear word in your household at the moment, but in ours, the tradition of making mincemeat, cake and puds can’t come too early, particularly as I’m doing it in my brand new kitchen.

We have been working on a big renovation of our house. The building work is almost done and I’m finally getting to the exciting bit of choosing colours and accessories. Weekends at the moment seem to include sorting out the rooms and choosing all the fun stuff.

Here are a few of my fave rooms and purchases.

We love a bit of creating in this house. Weekends always usually involve some kind of creating! This is my 6 year old Lucy having some colouring-in therapy.

I feel very privileged to be working on the Templar Publishing charity initiative, creating the website and auction for their 80 paper watches, designed by 80 of the UK’s top illustrators, all in aid of Breast Cancer Care.

For the last week or two, I’ve been working on the website to get it live and I’m pleased to report we pushed the button this weekend. If you would like to own your unique piece of art, watch out for the auction starting on Sun 3rd Nov.
