My Very First Calendar

Hooray!!  I finished my first calendar......that was not easy. No-one told me it was so difficult to set up a calendar.......it involved some colourful language as well as colourful inks. However, it is done and I am quite happy with it......I think. The light was not great for the photograph but the cover has a lovely sparkle through and the pages are printed i[...]

Orange Shoes!! MailART

I am soooooo glad this MailART has arrived safely as it is a picture of my favourite shoes.  Ok, so I love shoes!!!  I have a few pairs (over 50) but these are my favourites.  These are the kind of shoes that can brighten any day, any dull outfit and just make you smile :) They are in no way practical....I cannot walk far in them........ they are sitting down[...]

A Touch of Colour – MailART

Where is my time going this month?  I need to pick up my pencils again soon or I will have forgotten how to use them. :(    Shout at me if I do not keep you supplied with new work to look at!

Anyway...back to[...]

Portrait Challenge – Part 2

This portrait started quite well and I was really pleased with what I had achieved.....then something happened and I lost it somewhere. At this stage things are still going pretty well but somewhere in the next stage I lost a little. It is a nice picture....I like it ...but it is not Rose.  I checked with her mum and this is what she said. "It’s defi[...]

Start of my Portrait Challenge

I have to start with another thank you to you all for your support....I posted my request for volunteers and so many of you responded.  I hope I can do this!! I said I would share this challenge with you and I will share as I go along so I hope that this works, I have to say I am terrified of letting anyone down or upsetting them if I do not portray what is expe[...]
