  • So today not only is my wife, @kerrylmilne ‘s Birthday, it is also our 8th wedding anniversary.

I got this beautiful wee commissioned masterpiece done by the ridiculously talented @drawnwithlovebyvicki at the start of the year and have managed to keep it hidden until today.

I asked Vicki if she could draw our awesome Chevy Bel Air wedding car in front of our wee church in Whitehills - a photo of this exact setup doesn’t exist so I sent Vicki a couple of photos and she created this masterpiece.

She doesn’t really draw cars, so I’m so chuffed she took the job on and she made such a great job of it. 
This will be hung pride of place in our house. Thanks again Vicki, it’s amazing 😍 << do some swiping to see the photos I sent and some of my favourite photos of us from our first dance ❤️

  • Something a little different the night.

These photos popped up on my personal Facebook account as memories from 2012, I still think they’re pretty awesome so have shared.

Was a pretty proud moment of mine when one of our friends asked for a copy of these which they still have framed and up on the wall in their house. 
HMT Aberdeen when Dirty Dancing was showing, hence the pink lights, and Marischal College both taken in the evening as long exposure shots. 
Aberdeen can be a bonnie place when it wants to be. 😍

  • I had Vanessa and James in the studio last week for their Mummy & Me Mini Session.  Safe too say James was not too sure of me and the camera but we got some beautiful shots of them both.

As always if this is post receives 💯 likes, Vanessa will receive this image as a free 10 x 8 print.

  • The Arnotts

Dawn got in touch and asked if I’d do a heart for her family. 
Dad is a rugby fan and proudly wears the Scotland strip - even more so after last weeks epic comeback. Daughter Summer loves her gymnastics and is another member of the Alvah Gym Team. Son Dexter loves his Xbox but is always dressed smartly and Dawn herself loves nothing more than a cuppa, brewing nicely here in her actual teapot in chalk form. Oh, and of course German Shepherd, Seth, is featured right in the middle of the whole family.

They are the Arnotts and this board was a pleasure to make for them. Thanks for the order Dawn 👍🏻🙌🏻 @dawnr12not

  • A hot air balloon inspired baby board for Cameron, to match his nursery theme.

Ordered by Auntie Jacqueline for Rachel and Ross, and what a great piece it was to make.  Congrats on the new arrival, I hope he’s being good for you. I’m sure Teigan and wee Ajay are besotted with their new cousin. 💙☁️🎈 @p18mfb

  • Following on from my charity post earlier today, my wife, Kerry, and my wee pocket rocket daughter, Ella-Marie, are taking part in a 3 hour jumpathon at @jumpinaberdeen in aid of @comicrelief on Friday. Ella-Marie has gotten special approval from school to have the afternoon off to do this great fundraising as long as she goes in on Monday and tells the whole class all about it. They’re both very excited and have already raised a great amount of money, but a little bit more would be fantastic. If anyone is feeling generous, from a pound to a tenner, everything goes into the pot and will do a great deal for a lot of people. Follow the link on my bio and give what you can, or just wish them luck below and I’ll read every message to Ella-Marie in the morning 💗. Go on girls, me and Lachlan will be cheering you on from the sidelines 👍🏻🙌🏻 Thanks to all who have already sponsored, you’re all awesome 😍 @kerrylmilne

  • Let’s talk charity!

I’m always keen to help charities where I can. I often donate String-a-Ling vouchers as raffles to good causes or will always been keen to help with any fundraising with a chalkboard as long as I get plenty notice.

I was recently asked to make a chalkboard for an afternoon tea and fizz party in aid of Macmillan. Lauren is currently raising money for the charity in memory of her Nana who sadly passed away last year. Lauren is also running the London Marathon in April to raise as much as she can for the fantastic charity. Read her full story on Aberdeen’s own Evening Express website. The board was my pleasure to make and will hopefully be able to be used time and time again for these great fundraising events.

So, yes, got a fundraiser coming up, need some raffles? Need a chalkboard made? Give me a shout and I’ll do what I can to help out. 👍🏻 @laurenkgill13 @eveningexpress @macmillancancer

  • A Stormtrooper riding on the back of a highland cow...not something see every day and don’t think it’s a request I’ll see again!

This was the perfect combination for a Star Wars fan and someone who loves highland cows, and was the brainchild of Denni for a one off wedding memento, which travelled all the way to Ireland for their wedding yesterday.

Love ideas like this, totally challenged me in every way, but I freakin’ love it, and the wee caption chosen perfectly sums the picture, and the beautiful couple up in a nutshell...”when two worlds collide, unexpectedly beautiful things can happen...” 😍

Hope you all had a fab day, and wish the happy couple all the very best in their married life together ❤️ Give a wee swipe to see them with their board 👌🏻👍🏻 @dekerr137

  • Wishing the peerie wee man, Thorfinn a very happy 1st Birthday today, I hope he’s had a fantastic day celebrating - having fun at Hoodles I believe!

This board makes me smile, a lot! Thorfinn’s mummy, Ashley, is not one to follow convention, she knows exactly what she wants and the great thing is she lets me know, then I turn her vision into reality.

For so long now I’ve wanted to draw Buzz and Woody from @toystory. I’m not going to lie, Buzz’s suit was a bit of a challenge, but just look how awesome it turned out! Thorfinn loves jumping, so Tigger is on there to represent that pastime! 
So many cool things in the board, but one of the most touching is family doggie Dougal, who belongs to Thorfinn’s Great Auntie Norma. Thorfinn and Dougal were great pals, but very sadly Dougal passed away only a week or so after I completed the board. This board will remind the family of Dougal and all the fun they had with him too.

Thanks for the order Ashley, I look forward to progressing your next.

If you like what you see folks, hit that wee like button or give this post a share. I’m very proud of my work, a lot of effort goes into each and every board so I appreciate the support 🙌🏻 @rosie_apples_ashers

  • Well here we are on another Sunday night, can’t believe that’s the weekend past again and another week starting tomorrow...nor can I believe we’re into March already! Time is flying.

I’ve no new pieces to show off at the moment but over this next week I have 2 epic chalkboards coming up - one for a first Birthday, and one wedding horseshoe heart which on getting the request I had to read it about 4 times!

We’ve had another great jam packed weekend as a family. We only get 2 days of the week altogether as a foursome so try and always make the best of it. Saturday is a day of classes, swimming, football, dancing, then we get a few hours in the afternoon - yesterday we went to Duthie Park on the bikes.

Today we got up, had breakfast and went to @parkrunuk Junior, again at Duthie Park, where my Ella-Marie completes her 21st run, earning her the distance milestone of equivalent to a marathon - mega proud of her and her efforts 🙌🏻 This afternoon we went to @crathes_castle and chose one of the longer walks since it was such a nice day. Then home after a fly cup, made Sunday roast - well steak pie - and went to @auntybettystonehaven for an ice cream.

This, folks, is what our perfect weekends look like! I hope you all had a blast too.

Look forward to sharing some new creations with you this coming week. Have a good one!

  • This wee family chalkboard heart was made for my favourite customer, Sheila (I love you all really). She wanted a wee present to mark sister Debbie and husband Allan’s wedding anniversary - I think she just wanted an excuse to buy one really. Allan is a keen golfer, and is shown doing keepy-ups with the ball dressed in his golf gear. Debbie is a nurse and is shown in her practice’s colours ready to take blood from someone with the biggest needle known to man - you’d run a mile! Daughter Alana being a teenager is into experimenting with her makeup and is rarely seen without her favourite Hard Rock Cafe hoody on. They have a wee Westie dog called Jasper, who complete the Towlers. 
Another great chalkboard to make, a new ‘character’ in the teenager with makeup stereotype to draw, so il a happy boy. Now I can get started on your next piece Sheila. Thanks again for your order 👌🏻
