Promo day and nature pics

My job is unusual.


Good unusual....it's not every day you are requested to go to bed and chill out as part of your working day. 

That's got to be a good day by anyone's standards. 


I'm now covered in glue getting ready for Wednesday's show. Unfortunately my prep time has been reduced to 6 hours!! Eeekk....I think I'm already close to that and I've not actually finished one sample....but the paints I have picked are beautiful. So thick and rich. And the stencils :) joy.

As I've no crafty make to share with you yet, instead I'll share the photos we have been popping on fb. For those of you who don't use Facebook, there's a little challenge being passed around, where people have to share a photo of nature, each day for 7 days. I was nominated by the lovely Natasha, she knows I'm out walking my dogs every day. And I've been known to be late for work just because I've seen a kingfisher - so it's safe to say I'm a nature enthusiast.

So far, I've collected these:


Peterborough flooded again, but beautiful in a strange light and a misty morning. No filter.

Haha, this is my weird one. Mud. Crafters will get this...probably. I love the way it moves when disturbed :)


This is an oldish one - but a slight obsession of mine. I love the way grasses glow in the sun. 

And today:

A blue sky and a white blossom.

Life's too short for shoe gazing....
sometimes we worry so much about the next step we are going to take, we forget to look up and just get lost in the clouds :)

I can see the "mud" photo being used as inspiration for one of your art works, Leonie. Lovely photos.
