Hi there Thanks for popping in. Went to the office today for a design meeting with Lovely Lucy and Lisa. Great session. I love working with two such creative, switched on, easy going women. Nothing is too much trouble, and they always see what I see. We are definitely cut from the same cloth when it comes to design! It was Mel’s work we were getting to grips with. Always such magnificent and original art. More will be revealed. And…

Honesty.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Been poodling around the house today, cooking, cleaning, ironing and just generally catching up with domestic chores. This kind of productive yet not particularly mentally taxing activity leaves the mind free to wander and ponder, don’t you find? And that is precisely what mine did. Without even leaving the kitchen, I managed in a very short space of time to get all riled and caught up in the corruption and devious, manipulative behaviour of…

The Circle of Life

Hi there. Thanks for popping in! Hotter than yesterday here in the Southeast. To hot to move around much, except for a long walk, cool under the canopy of the greenwood trees. That was wonderful. It’s been what one could call a mini holiday actually. A combination of extreme heat and our friend Jilly’s company stopped me hopping about, working, cleaning, planning, doing bla bla bla. In fact, Wurka and Hollick didn’t get a look in today. I even had…

How about a Gilding Flake Sale – A PROPER, TOO GOOD TO MISS, Sale? There are 2 bundles, each with 5 pots of Pentart gilding flakes, the glue you need and a…
