At last I have found a minute to write a few words here. Life is hectic but fun and i'm loving the creative freedom I have now I'm not nursing and feeling stressed all the time.
I was awake at 5.30 yesterday so I made this card design. It is based on a piece of dyed, old cotton sheeting which was discharge dyed and then screen printed. I added the applique yesterday and the topping or tiny little glass beads today, after Liz came to the rescue with her HUGE collection!
As you can see from the title of this blog, I have booked a trade show today. Big decision. Big expense BUT it will make me focus and I love, love LOVE working to deadlines. There is nothing quite like it to make me get a move on.
Gareth has been helping me to do the card backs and add my logo and barcodes. Bloody barcodes! Not only do you have to pay for the privilige, you pay DOUBLE the first year...you know the sort of thing...a registration fee and then they want it every year ad infinitum. Huh!
Well....I decided it is best to get the pain over once and for all at the beginning of this venture just in case a BIG buyer comes along and orders lots and lots and wants barcodes on them. I'm dreaming big....and my fingers are tightly crossed but you know what? i'm enjoying the ride......I just need to hold on tight!
We took Rosie to the Country Park at Milton at the weekend. Haven't been there for so long and its on our doorstep practically. This swan spent most of the time chasing one of last years newbies and showing who was boss!
didn't see the kingfishers this time but this is where they hang out...
Rosie and I walk up this driveway every morning and I sneakily took a couple of pictures of the wild daffodils. They are tiny and grow in such profusion.
It really does make having a dog worthwhile. I would never see these otherwise as I wouldn't walk alone.
I have so much other news but I fancy a cup of coffee so I'm off! See you soon
