It’s ok to change your mind.

It’s ok to change your mind.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Yesterday I made a plan in my head to do pottery today. All day. This morning I spent an hour deciding what I actually want to make. Tiles, bowls, another element of Dad’s totem pole, a wall hanging for the kitchen – so many ideas! Got dressed up warm, all set to weather the elements outside and in the not so toasty garage. Cleaned both bathrooms while I was whizzing around upstairs, aired the…

Winds of Change

Winds of Change

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How’s the New Year shaping up in your neck of the woods? It’s been raining and blowing a hoolie here for days. Wain, wain, wain. I’ve been in my artroom, (or should I say artwomb?) prepping for Sunday’s TV show, and quite enjoying my own company. I got caught up in a Gelpress session, which was thoroughly enjoyable. You know how it goes. You’re supposed to be making the bed, you go to hang…

Slowly Slowly Swiftly Swiftly…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Rainy Sunday, so a perfect day for crafting. Pottery this morning. Made a start on the Totem Pole. This could take a while, but hey! Who’s in a rush?? You just need a little vision and a lot of patience… Oh. And a ruler and pencil… Remember the sketch? Well, this is the base piece. That’s 6 hours so far. But who’s counting? It’s a good job I don’t have to make a living…

Treescape colour.

Treescape colour.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Easter Monday and all is well. Was watching Iolo Williams trekking through the Welsh marches earlier, and suddenly had a hankering to do some stencil art. So here is a splash of treescape colour, stepped up. I used our lovely treescape Stencil, designed by Mel. An hour or so of inky distraction was just what the doctor ordered… Look out for it behind me the next time we hang out together in the SHAC!…

Harmony? When?

Harmony? When?

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Beautiful sunny Sunday here in the Southeast. Pottery this morning, and back in the Clarity saddle this afternoon. Did you get a chance to watch our Clarity Mixed Media Friday TV show on the new Create & Craft? I was showcasing our lovely Blockprint stamps. I really like them. There’s something very arty, edgy and earthy about them. I think also that they can be whatever the occasion begs: vibrant and bright, soft and…
