I think right now is a wonderful time of the year. Not least because it’s my birthday in a few days! I think over the years that timing has helped me to stay mainly ‘up’ at a traditional ‘down’ time.
My mind has turned to 2020 art making and I have filled my studio walls with blank canvases to provide inspiration.
Watch this space!
I’ve given my website a little tidy up – there are now easier links to my textile art, paper craft, cake and marketing activities. https://creativityonline.co.uk/
This new front page image brings all my creative ventures together.
My Etsy shops Paper Roses Shop and Felted Embroidered Art have both been updated with new products.
Do pop by and check it out when you have a moment!
Tidying up now from the ABC Art Trail. What a wonderful weekend!
THANKS to all the visitors – we reckon more than 350 – amazing given the difficult weather on Sunday.
THANKS for all the interest in my work and supportive comments – it means so much.
THANKS for all the purchases, people were very generous.
- How much my husband enjoyed running his VIP lounge
- Chatting to the gentleman who remembered visiting the house as a child when his uncle lived here in the 1950s and showing him round
- Myriam’s amazing lollies!
- An excited lady buying one of my new large works for her new house
- Talking about my methodologies and motivations
- Watching people enjoying our garden
- and – not least – enjoying working with and getting to know the other wonderful artists on the trail. I am so happy to have found many like minded new friends
The garden is looking lovely – it is filled with textures and shades of green. Pretty weeds and a wild lawn have been encouraged and embraced!
We’re all ready for the ABC Art Trail next weekend, looking forward to welcoming many people to enjoy our art, and chill over a goodie from the Nice Lolly Company.
One of a series of wild flower field felted artworks…
These depict what I see in the edges of the meadows at Haddon Hall.
A beautiful textural depth of greens with little pops of petal highlights.
The recently created dandelions survived the trip down to West Sussex and became the centrepieces for a gorgeous wedding.
We think they look rather uniquely special!
Amazing! I turned all my quinces into Quince Jelly, which is now on sale at the top notch greengrocer Hallam‘s on Beeston High Street. They sold half the stock last weekend!
It is also featuring on the cheeseboard in renowned vegetarian cafe Café Roya.
A bit of an adventure – well worth a bit of effort!
Customers are in for a treat – I remember when I first tasted it! A unique experience.
I have made another 12 terraced houses from machine applique, ready to show at the forthcoming Art Trail. This is turning into a slight obsession!
I have enjoyed the challenge of representing the beautiful colours of Victorian architecture, different perspectives and textures – but they did send me slightly batty with all the time they took to create! In some places there are 8 layers of stitching.
They just need tidying up and framing now…
We are now shipping our vintage sheet music roses all over the country! You can buy them HERE at our Etsy shop.
In addition, we have developed a range of Christmas goods. Christmas cards and hanging stars.
Also available from the Etsy shop.
Perfect for anyone who loves music!
