Have you heard of Senor Picklesworth?? I am very pleased to introduce you to the creations that Gemma (the artist) makes.
Her work is so fun and largely centers around the adorable chihuahua character, Senor Picklesworth.
With me having two chihuahuas of my own, the designs really caught my eye.
The creations look so professional and wouldn't be out of place in any nice little boutique.
Great presentation and so cute!
My hubby made the comment that he should be made into a cartoon as he is so cute and has loads of personality, I agree!!
The prices are very reasonable.
There is a fridge magnet set that disappointed me slightly, it looks adorable on my fridge but I was kinda hoping to dress him up in the different hats and bow tie/necklaces provided in the pack but sadly they were not strong enough to stick over eachother.
It maybe my fridge, not sure but I thought that was sucky and that it would be loads of fun to dress him up.
My faves were the badges SUPER CUTE and the cupcake toppers. I love these and will be using them in my next tea party, for sure :)
I love the drawer hanger, makes me smile each time I look at that cute face, hehe.
i loved everything.
Looking forward to writing to pen pals on my ahoy paper!
I recommend you get yourself to Gemma's shop now and go buy some sweet and cute creations!

1. Tell us a bit about yourself, your background and how you got into creating your wonderful creations!
I completed my Textile & Surface design degree in 2007 and started working as a freelance designer for children’s wear and by 2009 Senor Picklesworth was born.
I have always been interested in art & design but never really studied it throughout school, I only realised I wanted to study design when I left school and started looking at college courses. So when I went to college I decided to take a course in art & design as it was quite broad and I wasn’t sure which area I wanted to specialise in. By the end of that 3-year course I decided that my main area of interest was textiles and surface design.
I mainly create paper products but my training also allows me to work with textiles, interiors and fashion products, I like this diversity as I get bored easily and find that juggling different projects helps keep my mind occupied.
2. What/who inspires you and why?
Well Senor Picklesworth is a concept brand that was inspired by my Chihuahua Pixie and all the other various pets I’ve had throughout my life.
On a daily basis I am inspired by something whether it’s something in a paper/magazine on TV or something one of my pets do. I also take my inspiration from other artists and designers like Julie Verhoeven and I always feel inspired on my trips to New York and London.
3. How would you describe your wonderful style?
I would describe my style as fun, colourful and quirky. I love coming up with odd colour combinations and I always try to give every product my own quirky twist, I also like to give my customers something that they haven’t seen before.
4. How did you come up with your design name?
I get asked this question all the time, and to be honest I’m not sure myself. It started with my Chihuahua character as I knew he would be from Mexico so I tried to think of something typically Mexican so that’s where the “Senor” part came from but the “Picklesworth” is still a mystery to me!
5. When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a vet; I think it was because when I was a kid we always had lots of pets from cats and dogs to chickens and axolotls. It wasn’t till I left school that I knew I wanted to do something creative.
6. If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a goat as they always look like they’re having fun and always look happy jumping and playing on little hills.
7. How would you decorate a cupcake to represent your personality?
This is a good question as in my spare time I love to bake in particularly cupcakes! So I would cover it with bright pink butter icing then decorate with multicoloured glitter!
8. As a designer, what are you most proud of that you have accomplished to date.
I would have to say that everyday is my biggest accomplishment as I am a “one man band” business so if I don’t do the work then no one else will. Also setting up my own business was a pretty big accomplishment, as I had no previous business experience or practice.
9. What makes you laugh??
The one thing that is guaranteed to make me laugh is watching my Inbetweeners DVD box set; it is the funniest TV show I’ve ever seen!
10. Do you have a website/blog??
Yes I have a website, blog, Etsy Shop and Senor Picklesworth has his own Facebook Fan Page.
You get a chance to win this super cute tote bag!!!!
