It was a difficult decision to change the focus of my website from my old arts and crafts site, where I posted every day for over three years. As you can imagine that was a lot of work and I loved the results. Judging from the lovely comments I received and the followers I built up, many of you did too. However, after much thought, I decided I wanted to do something different – and the result is the site you’re on now. You can view a lot of sketches in the Sketchbook section of the website and I will continue to add to these. There won’t be as many blog posts on this version of the site as there used to be but I will update and add new posts as and when I see something that interests me. I’ll also be doing much more on my social media channels and including some of the types of ‘interest pieces’ I used to post on Rag Tag Magpie. So, make sure you follow me on Instagram ) Pinterest and Facebook to see what’s interesting me in the art world at any given time!

Let me introduce myself, my name is Nic and I love to spend my free time drawing, painting, sewing, knitting, in fact trying anything that lets me experiment and explore my creativity. My love of all things arty started when I was a child, my dad was a printer so there was always lots of paper in the house and things took off from there. I stopped drawing when I went to university and didn’t feel I had time when my career took over but rediscovered my love of all things creative about 5 years ago and I haven’t looked back. Since then I’ve taken life drawing classes and started painting again and then a couple of years ago I took an evening class in pottery. This re-sparked my passion for trying new things. My husband and I set Rag Tag Magpie up to share ideas and inspiration with like minded souls. Our mission is to get people to do something that makes them happy. THIS BLOG IS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT SOME INSPIRATION AND TO BE PART OF A COMMUNITY OF CREATIVES – AFTER ALL A CREATIVE MESS IS BETTER THAN IDLE TIDINESS! View more posts
