Well Hi there!
My posting here has been rather sporadic of late, so thought I’d let ya’ll know what was going on in my life :)
I’m not long back from France, so bonjour!!
My summer was spent holidaying, doodling, catching up on my exhibition visits, Fringing, but mostly chilling out!
Now, it’s work time again…. and I’ve got no uni to go back to… which is wonderfully exciting and scary at the same time!
At the start of next week I’m moving into The Precious Metals Workshop (yay!) and setting up a bench so I can continue to improve my making skills, and also, start making up collections of pieces to sell in my Etsy store and hopefully a variety of markets and events…. that’s the plan anyway!
I’ve got quite a few ideas and inspirations running around in my head screaming “pick me! pick me!” so I’m working on lots of bits and pieces at the moment… and of course will update you with my progress!
Especially as I would like to start writing a lot more. I love blogging. I love writing in my journal. I’d love to write professionally for something, be that a blog or a magazine… I think that would be fantastic! So, I’m going to start practising on here, not sure how yet, or what I’ll write about…. but stay tuned for that!
You might have also noticed that I’ve cleaned up my blog a little bit and made it prettier… what do you think?
And I’ve done the same to my website, I’d love it if you checked it out and let me know what you think of it?
I think that’s it for now……..
Stay tuned for everything else!!
But for now, enjoy some of the best bits from our trip to France!
The Burgundy Region
I painted this little guy on our first day in the Burgundy region. We’d just set up and decided to have a chilled out, lazy camp day. So of course I got my paints out and got creative! I really love how this guy turned out, and really loved the experience of painting on a leaf! Might do some more in the future! But I do have plans for this “Avallon Faery”….. I’ll keep it a secret just now, but look out for her on my etsy store…
Justin and Andrea’s Gaff
As much as I’d like to tell you that we always dress like this, I feel I should bring context to these next few photos by saying that it was Andrea’s (the lovely lady in the Soltaire outfit) 40th Birthday party and the theme was 70s/80s movies and tv (ie. any excuse to whip up a TARDIS costume)!
Beryl, Dùghall and Pingu/our sexy beasts!
Well, that was a lot of photos!
See you on the other side.
