Thanks for popping in. Before I make a dash for the artroom above the garage in this here rain deluge, let me chat to you – in hopes that it will calm down! One cat’s in, one cat’s out. Ragnar actually likes the rain – weird little Viking that he is! Or maybe he likes the rubdown with a warm towel he gets when he eventually turns up at the kitchen door like a drowned rat – or should I say cat ?!
This week’s Design of the Week Special Offer is one of my favourite designs by Linda. I remember when she came up with these, I really enjoyed using them, and building wreaths with all the elements. Perhaps that’s because I like jigsaw puzzles…
Time to shine a light on these fabulous Groovi plates – so many elements – and not just for the festive period.
Available HERE with 30% discount to celebrate 30 years of being in business
Here is some inspiration from the design team
Don’t forget : we’ve added a second SHAC session to our weekly schedule. Thursday evenings at 7pm. No fee – it’s all free. You don’t need anything except a pencil and a piece of paper, maybe some tracing paper and an easer. If you have the Micron pens and the perga Liner pencils, they’ll come in useful next Monday, when we’re inking and colouring.
Why am I doing this? Quite simply because I think it’s important to keep each other company. The evenings are drawing in, people are having to stay indoors because of the bad weather, the News is awful. So a little creative company, to give you something arty to do and keep you company can only be a good thing. If I’m feeling anxious, then so are a lot of others. We’re better together. And one thing I DO know for sure: Distraction is good for reducing Anxietly levels. When I’m trying to draw a deer’s antlers, I’m not thinking much else, other than the deer’s antlers – and how they look like scaffolding or bent coathangers! Oh yes. Laughter is good for the soul too.
