Creativity on holiday

Posted on 20 April 2011 in Walking

Last year when we walked the Coast to Coast, I made a zine out of it! Part of the fun was drawing it as we went, each night we’d sit down and Andrew would write his journal and I would do some doodling. It felt so good to be so creative on our trip. So, […]

Edinburgh trip as seen by cartoon shapes

Posted on 16 April 2011 in Fun stuff

One year we went to Edinburgh to visit my brother and a couple of friends came too… You’ll notice that Lorna was not in the lounge car, that is because she sensibly went to sleep instead… The next morning… We walked past Arthur’s Seat to the Sheep’s Heid pub where we had haggis of course. […]

Recently I am all about the cute stuff

Posted on 13 April 2011 in Creative life

In my constant quest to try to figure out what makes me tick creatively, I made another breakthrough: Cute stuff! Also, stationery. Preferably combined (oooo).

Secret ingredient

Blossom Gift

There are some beautiful blossom trees on the road near me and when walking past the other day I noticed that someone had tied a little gift high up in the branches.

Suzi Blu is a well known, successful mixed media artist. I’m sure if you’re reading this blog you’ve already aware of her. Anyhow, this old video of hers is really making me smile today. She is an inspirational teacher and from time to time we all need a bit of inspiration and fun, don’t we? […]

What is my style?

Posted on 1 April 2011 in Craft

Something I’ve struggled with for ages is the question: what is my style? Does anyone else feel like this? I don’t even know what sort of art/craft I want to specialise in or even if I want to specialise at all. I have so many different interests. And within each craft/technique I find I vary […]
