Lately.

 Hurrah I have some creativity at the moment..... I have got back into my sewing :) Here is a little embroidered animal brooch I made :)

 I have been making some gift tags for Christmas. I know I have some somewhere but no idea where they are hiding. I don't want to buy anymore so i'm making some ;) I hate wrapping presents i wrapped a couple last night and that was enough ...hmmph on the huge to do list.

 I have made a few Christmas cards. I have used my dad's stamp he carved in 1992. I'm sure he wouldn't mind this little collaboration ;)

We went to Yorkshire recently to visit Wesleys Grandad and Brother. We can't go to Leeds without a trip to Ikea. We found these funny hats and had to try them on hehe :)

I can't belive it's a week until Christmas.....Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Yeah new painting :D

Sea anemones in her hair. Mixed media on paper. The photo does not do it justice but i'm really pleased with the colours. You can see a larger photo on my Flick page.

Folksy shop update ;)








Loads of new greetings cards for sale in my Folksy shop. Great for a special note to someone or affordable art for yourself. Would look great in a little frame :)
There will be more added each day this week ;)

Pondering away.

Well it has been sooo long since I last posted. To be honest I haven't really been creative at all and i'm still struggling with inspiration and enthusiasm :( It is sooooooo frustrating.
 On the other hand I have been quite tired and somewhat distracted as it seems i'm having a baby!! Hehe (feels very strange typing this and letting the internet world know, eeek) I'm not even sure if anyone/many read this, or care but hey.
So I don't really know if i'm gonna carry on with this blog???? I might but it seems silly to post once every blue moon, and I know it's annoying when people don't blog regularly as it frustrates me.
I may start a new one combined with our Gallery as my life is not that exciting and theyre would be more content and interest with it? Hmmm I shall sit on it a while........
I'm sorry if any of you do read my blog and enjoy looking at my work but please be patient as this is a daunting but very exciting chapter in my life.
