Greetings from lovely Harrogate! At last - the long awaited holiday is in full swing. Although we opted for a more scaled down break and are taking things easy compared to the original plan, we are enjoying a plush apartment, some wonderful sunny days, great shops, awesome houses and lots of good old Yorkshire tea and cake. I have already scoured the length and breadth of Harrogate and York trying to sniff out the faintest whiff of a craft store. I am already well set up with Art from the Heart with a Printers Tray workshop on Friday. Unfortunately Dyan (owner of AFTH) has been taken rather ill and into hospital with a nasty virus - so no wooden purse & tags or Melt Art workshop. But seeing as I was also lying on a similar bed very recently, I fully understand. Wishing her well.
So no piccys of my creations yet, but a little pot of gold I wanted to share...I found some really great vintage cigarette card photos at a flea market - just look at those faces and eyes...there's no such thing as too much glamour.
Also added a few more cards to my postcard collection. It can be the image, the colours, or the mood that grabs me...hope they will inspire you too. And just one more stamp from Tin Can Mail. There's no such thing as too many stamps...! So today is short and sweet but couldn't go without my WOYWW. Enjoy all the desks, stashes and ramblings. Over and out.
A simple gal with a passion for imagery, composition and detail. Enjoying the freedom, adventure and sanctuary of dabbling, stamping, paper art and...just being. Hope you enjoy your visit, do linger a while.
After many travels, a lifetime of dance and 13 years in Holland, time for a trip back home. My musical Belgian hubby, baby Ruby and I nestle in Lovely Ludlow and still need to paint our little Victorian terrace...
Thank you very much for taking the time to be here. I am grateful to all the artists, renown or yet undiscovered, who inspire me. I am learning, discovering and creating everyday and I hope you may also partake in this journey. I strive to find my own originality and creativity to produce individual hand-made pieces. If you would like to refer to any of my designs or photographs, it would be greatly appreciated if you would please credit them to me and this blog. Thank you.
