Bunting Challenge

As anybody who follows my blog will know I like a challenge, especially a creative one. So, when I saw the Rubyshoes Rocks Great British Bunt Off how could I resist? I have to confess I have known about this for a few weeks but with the wedding and honeymoon didn’t think I would have… Read more »

With a little help from my friends…

Now we’re thoroughly back down to earth with a bump after getting back from Florida this morning I thought I’d do a quick post about some of the fab (and crafty) things that we did and saw to remind myself of the all too distant fun in the sun! Apart from seeing the final launch… Read more »

Rhino Mania hits Chester

The elephants paraded through London, raising an amazing £4 million for charity, and just as we were starting to miss seeing them around we came across the Chester rhinos (not Leeds rhinos as my brother would have hoped!) grazing their way around Chester. As it was a fleeting visit a couple of weekends ago whilst… Read more »

Painting in Poland…

Well a short visit to my family in Poland was never going to be a holiday, too many people to see and unbeknown to me until I arrived too many paintings to paint! I love spending time with my family, especially my god-daughter so when given about 5 canvases and some paint I don’t mind… Read more »
