You’ve been framed!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. I noticed this morning that our Half Price Offer of the Week is one of my all time favourite frame sets – so lovely to use! And we’ve got these Entwined framers both as stamps AND as Groovi Plates – complete with a set of useful sentiments using my handwriting. I remember drawing these beauties to enhance the Floral Alphabet Set I had drawn before! Here’s a sample I did earlier, using the J…

This too shall pass…

This too shall pass…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How are you? How am I? Or perhaps the question we should be asking is WHO are you? And WHO am I? I seem to wake up most mornings wondering what the hell is going on in England, in Europe, in the world. And I often catch myself wondering what I am supposed to be doing, and which role I should be playing in response to the world we live in now. Which brings…

Thoroughly enjoyed this one. I love her artwork. It is just a pleasure to…

Back in the Saddle…

Back in the Saddle…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Having a good day? Having a growing day? I don’t know whether you recall, but a few months ago, I spoke of a dear friend whose husband died suddenly, and without warning. Every day I think of that friend, and her ongoing nightmare rightsizes absolutely ANYTHING going on in my own life. In deference to that friend, I didn’t divulge her identity – because firstly, it’s not my story to tell, and secondly, she…

Monday. Keep Calm and Carry On.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. I do hope you are bearing up okay ? Things are certainly being sent to challenge us, aren’t they. Trying to figure out the best way to get to work is the first thing on the list today. I was fortunate enough to fill up with diesel before it all kicked off at the pump, but the roads around the filling stations are rammed and blocked, with angry, frustrated drivers, so I shall opt…

The Learning Curve…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Glorious, sunny day again here in the south east. What are you up to? I was having a little lazy half hour in bed this morning, with a cup of tea, thinking about the day ahead, deciding what to do, what to make. Clarity work is always there, but that’s what it is. Work. It may be arty, lovely work – but to me it is work nonetheless. And everybody needs a day off…
