I know, I know it’s been yet another week since I last posted anything… It’s been a busy week though! On Monday I left home at some unearthly hour to arrive at the NEC … praying all the way that PEAS wouldn’t decide to have an off day (she didn’t) … for a trade craft fair. Talk about inspiration and creative ideas in abundance. It was well worth all the effort of getting up early… I’m definitely not a morning person…. and trekking all the way there. I came away with lots of new ideas and very itchy fingers!
Tuesday we all had to make ourselves visit our number one most hated place… the dentist… fortunately we were all ok… this time… and the girls, despite being far too old for them, came away with ‘I’ve been good at the dentist’ stickers!
Wednesday was spent catching up with the family. Coffee with my sister in law and lunch with my parents and some old friends.
I had some orders from my Open House event to fulfill and so it was down to work… here’s a sneek peek….
I made 2 bags and 3 journal covers… more pictures to come.
AND Friday was the best day of the week… A friend of mine who brought her ceramic work to my Open Day came for the day bringing with her some clay and lots of ideas… so we all had a play….
Harriet in action with a wooden spoon… not what I was expecting! Bet you can’t guess what she’s making?….
… and here’s Claire showing Harriet how to do it… any ideas yet?
Sitting on a ‘nest’ of paper… what do you think is being added here….??
This is a BIG clue…..!!!
I’m all ears….
Welcome to MR and MRS P. IG!!! Aren’t they great?
After lunch and homemade soup (yum) it was our turn to show Claire how we play with paint!! Lots of blank canvases waiting, paints out and brushes at the ready…..
After painting the background colours it was time to change into old clothes, and brave the very cold wind outside so that we could ‘splat’!!!!…
S.P.L.A.T…… look at that action shot….
Claire’s never had so much fun…..
Look at the mess we made…
… but aren’t the colours gorgeous???
The finished, splatted paintings drying in the sun…
All far too soon, it was time for Claire to pack up and head home. Mr and Mrs P.ig were packed carefully in a box for their ride home to be fired… not too much crackling I hope! And, Claire finished off her paintings with spots and glitter…..
… don’t they look great?
I can’t wait for your next creative session together… so many more ideas to explore!
A lovely surprise was awaiting me when I arrived home yesterday….. but more of that tomorrow.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend… what have you been up to?
