Thank you.

Hello, my name is Angie Stevens. I live in a terraced house in Swansea with my husband, three children, a dog, and a cat. We have eight chickens in the garden too. A few years ago I decided to start a blog in an attempt to get myself drawing again and to pull myself back from post-natal depression.

I know, I know loads of you have heard it all before, (yawn ,yawn) but I happened to notice that my number of followers is now over ten thousand tonight.

In the time I have been drawing and writing this blog I have accrued over two thousand drawings. There’s now a lot of sketchbooks filling my house, a lot of memories and happy times now remembered and not forgotten.

Thank you for stopping by, it’s always appreciated.

  1. Angie, I have never met you, never been to Swansea. (I am in the NYC metro are.). Regardless, your drawings, begun to save your own sanity, have been a gift to me. I look forward to seeing them every day, especially the ones with Arnie. (Uh, I have a cat . . .)
    So, thank you. Thank you for slow doing me to participate in your life, your family’s life, and your talent. If I had a glass of wine in my hand instead of a phone, I’d toast to ten thousand more. Laura

  2. That’s quite a milestone! Congratulations, Angie. I’m sure you’ve heard it all before too, but your drawings and sense of humour and your insight into family life โ€” these things bring smiles to the faces of many. Thank you, Anna : )

  3. Ooooops, that was supposed to be ALLOWING me. Stupid spell-check. Ugh.

  8. There is a complexity of life in your doodles, a playful and tender appreciation for the fleeting beauty of each day that makes my days a little sweeter for the sharing. Thank you.

  9. Well, I live in cold, sharp Albertan (Canada) foothills that look straight onto snow covered mountains – and I am one of your ten thousand followers! How brilliant, you must be so pleased – ?! I love how a few apparently simple lines can capture a situation, an attitude – and I forward and share, often.

  10. Shine on my darling… your little light burns so much brighter than you know. xxx

  13. I am an Afrikaans speaking lady from South Africa , and enjoy each of your fabulous drawings

  14. I’m not surprised you’ve grown so much. I never dreamt that one drawing a day could convey so much of life. I’m fascinated each day at how you capture reality and share it with us.


  15. It’s our pleasure, Angie fach.

  16. That’s a great achievement Angie, well done! Having been following you for a few years I’ve recently relocated across the pond with my husband and I love seeing your fab drawings each day as a little reminder of life in the UK. May you continue for many years to come.

    As a survivor of Post Natal Depression I have been charmed and encouraged by your insights into life’s simple pleasures.
    Thank you so much.

  18. Your pictures are better than keeping a diary, because each one being worth at least a thousand words, you have enough words now for a full-scale book! Congrats o 10K followers.

  19. Marvellous. Well done Angie ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Your life in drawings is a delight – it’s a joy to follow for huge numbers of people. Congratulations and thank you for your lovely work. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. You are amazingly talented and deserve all of the followers that you have! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  22. When I saw the heading….”Thank you”, I thought “Oh no, she’s stopping her blog!” I am so glad and grateful that you’re not. ( You’re NOT are you?!) I had terrible PND many years ago, I am so glad you not only drew your way out of it, but in the process shared your experiences of family life with us, giving/ restoring joy and hope to many thousands. You have drawn us all into your family ( forgive the pun), and made our lives richer. I am so fond of you all, and think of you every day. Well, you keep sending me blog posts, so I have to! Well done, dear Angie. x

  23. Angie my dear. I have never had PND never having had children. But part of my job was recognising & then helping mums through this truly horrible time in their lives. You found a way ,through your drawings,to hold onto something special & share that with your followers. Yours is one of my first emails of the day & I sooo look forward to it. Something good has come from something bad. You are fortunate indeed. May you continue to share xx

  24. Each morning is a pleasure to open your e-mail. I have them all saved! It brightens the dull days. Very best wishes. David

  25. Do keep at it ๐Ÿ™‚ It has been a wonderful ride so far!

  26. Always a pleasure to see your drawings.

  27. Congrats! And you’re one of my fav blogs to visit every day!

  29. Thank you, you bring so much fun into my day. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ x

  30. I commute from Eastbourne to London and when I saw your blog, I had a go at drawing some of my fellow commuters. I don’t manage it everyday but it has given me a lot of memories of people I have travelled with. It’s been fun. I hope you continue to go from strength to strength. It’s been inspiring.

  31. I look forward to your posts so much! You capture the emotions of family life so well in your whimsical drawings, I love them! They remind me of when my children were small and it just brings a lot of joy.

  32. Its a delight watching your family, plus Arnie and the chickens grow and develop. I think the number of followers is just the tip of the iceberg!

  33. Just amazing. You are my hero Angie! (Or as Marty called you, after our visit, Reggie! ) xxxx
