Talent Tuesday – Gillian Bates

Anyone who is a regular reader of my blog or viewer of my work will know that I’ve got back into my textiles over recent months and have even started free-stitching again, or sketching with the sewing machine as I like to call it. So, when I came across Gillian Bates and her etsy shop I was distracted… Read more »

Well I can’t believe that May is nearly over, and it’s only a few weeks away from our first wedding anniversary! So, as time continues to fly and this was a big birthday year for me (I’m beginning to feel like a dinosaur with my bones!) I thought it was about time I did a… Read more »

Noteswap

After doing the 4×6 exchange 2 I was looking for the next Art House Co-op when the note swap came up. It was inspired by a gigs and lyrics book I had recently done for my friend’s birthday and was a combination of my fave lyrics and I couldn’t live without music! It was a… Read more »

Showcase Sunday – red, white, blue

From now on Sunday is going to be the day I showcase my latest makes, doodles and creations. So to start off I’ve chosen a red, white and blue theme, hmmm… wonder why that could be!

#Blogboost 14 – Luulla

Yay, it’s the weekend which I imagine is more exciting to some than myself as at the moment everyday seems the same, but it does mean that I get to spend more time with my fab husband, and get more visits from friends. Today’s Luulla picks are from art and photography as the weekend often… Read more »
