Last April (2016) I moved to the beautiful village of Isleham on the north east side of Cambridgeshire! We bought another barn conversion to do up which would give us more space for our growing family. Along with our son Alfred who is coming up to three years old, we also have Elsie (who was born 2 days before we moved!) who is nearly 18 months!
There were many reasons for our move - but what was most important to me was having space to enjoy family life in an area where we would be able to enjoy village life while being in the heart of the countryside. We are so lucky to have so many amazing things on our doorstep (not least to mention a village Coop right across the road which has become an extension of the pantry!!)
I have loved over the past year exploring our new village and all the amazing things it has to offer - rather than explaining or listen them I decided to create an illustration/map of the village celebrating them!

I've really loved creating the map and am considering adding it to mugs that we can enjoy at home along with a framed print!
If you too are a fan of Isleham or just want to see and hear more about the village - you can also follow me on Instagram here (emily_kiddy) where there are lots of regular pictures of the village shared (and lots of the pictures of the preserves I make from my own garden as well as all the amazing produce you can find on the amazing village stalls!)
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the illustration and if there's anything I should add or have yet to discover!
