Counting Poster 2


Counting Poster 2

With a little push from my agent I have changed my counting poster, for the better I think. I think it has a little more energy in it. The individual numbers and their designs could also be great kids birthday cards, wall stickers as well as a poster. I will probably start with the poster though!

I am at last starting to license my work, and my new agent will be showing my childrens art at Surtex and The Licensing Show. My work has never been licensed out before so I am quite excited about this new venture.

We have shown this to a few people in the industry and are getting some good feedback.

Welcome To The Creative World Christian Daly.







In October 2011 I received a call from my brother, Simon, that his 19 year old son had decided to focus the next few months working on a porfolio for art college and would I help. Christian had just passed his leaving cert and then realised that what he wanted to be was an artist. Christian used to spend time with me in my studio as a child and always enjoyed art, but that was the last thing I had seen him draw, and had no idea what type of creative he would be.

I obviously said I would help and five months later after Christian sitting in my work room (which is quite small) painting, drawing, sculpting, has today delivered his porfolio to his first art college for review. Nerve racking stuff!

I think he is a very powerful creative and his passion is to become an animator, which I have no doubt he will become.

I also must say thank you to some seriously creative people who helped him along the way, Trion Sweeny of Sandymount Art School, Charlie and Caroline Kranz and Viv Duignan.

Above is a few samples of some of his work, which I hope you enjoy.

Bizziebaby.co.uk


I sent three of my products off for an independent review on BizzieBaby.co.uk. 3 reviewers are randomly picked to review the product. I am delighted with my reviews and got a 5/5 from a lady called Kate Monda. This 5/5 review gives me the silver product award by BizzieBee.

Below is Kate's review and here is a link to all three reviews.

Product Tested By Kate Monda – Raphael 5 Months

Kate Awarded The Carla Daly Personalised Wall Plaque 5/5

It's great – sturdy, brilliant size, lovely colours, really nice unusual piece for a nursery. Nice packaging, the parcel looked lovely and had a nice little company label on it. The design is great – Unique and colourful. The personalisation for this item was just perfect. It was completed brilliantly – only small point to make is that on the side of the bus the word ‘every' was spelt ‘ever' so I had to add the y with permanent marker myself. A very minor point though and not a huge problem! The quality is brilliant – it would take a lot to bend the product as it is really sturdy and will last in a Childs bedroom for a very long time. It looks as if it will wipe clean very easily too. , very good value for a unique and personalised product compared to others on the market that are similar. The design is unique to the artist and it just looks great! I would definitely consider this for babies and children of friends and family. You can really be sure that they won't receive anything similar for their birthdays/christenings etc. It is something that they will remember fondly and will keep well over the years – a lovely gift. I would have been thrilled if I had received this as a gift. I would recommend this product without hesitation. A bright and colourful special piece to hang on a Childs wall that will be treasured for a long time – so unique and refreshingly different to many of the other run of the mill ‘personalised' products available on the market today. It really looks lovely in my little boy's nursery. Kate Monda – Raphael 5 Months

New Work At Last


I find running my own business gives me very little time to be a creative. I promised myself when January came I would work on some new art. The first week back was really busy getting orders out but now I have completed a rough for a new personalised art print. It is based on the idea of Noah's Ark but will be personalised with a child's name, date of birth, weight, hospital and family names. The the picture will personalised like this.... Carla's Ark, 24.6.2011 etc. This will be added to my Christening Gifts category which is a very popular category with my Irish customers.

I have started painting it in, this will take a while and I will post you the final artwork when it is finished. It is so nice to pick up a paintbrush again!

New Year, New Website


I haven't blogged for a while, lazy me! I have been very busy and to add to all my work I have had my websites redesigned, both CarlaDaly.com and CarlaDaly.ie are completed, CarlaDaly.co.uk will be finished this week. A wonderful designer Viv Duignan designed it for me and I love it! I also think it is really working for me, in the short time I have been live (since Christmas) sales have doubled. So here is to a busy 2012 and thanks Viv :-)
