I am really enjoying working with renowned local artist Rita Mitchell.
I’m doing some blogging, social media posting and digitally cataloguing her work.
Her paintings are wonderful with a huge body of varied pieces.
I first met Rita on the ABC art trail and was immediately drawn to the way she painted skies. I later learnt about the calendars of Welsh views she produced for many years and later still about her generosity in sharing and supporting. She is a member of Nottingham Society or Artists and sells on Saatchi Art.
I have been busy in my kitchen over the last week – making 400+ gingerbread Christmas trees for concerts, presents and fuddles.
That may seem a lot – but when my baking business, Classy Cupcakes and Posh Patisserie, was in full flow a few years ago this was small fry around this time of the year. It has been fun this year, but I will not be baking professionally again any time soon.
Mind you, I had a great time this September preparing possibly the hardest cake I have ever made for my godson’s wedding. A huge Lego inspired cake! I had to transport it down to Sussex and I remembered that the most stressful time of any bake is the delivery…thankfully this one was OK. Phew!
A lovely review this weekend from a customer of my musical Christmas stars via Etsy:
“Thank you so much for the Christmas stars – they are lovely! I’m a flute teacher and I’m going to pop one into a Christmas card for each of my students, so they will be hanging on Christmas trees all around Sheffield!”
