Holidays have begun

The holidays have begun...And that means one very important thing...Free time! Above is a selection of recent pictures, from top left...

  • In the shop 'Upstairs at BS8' on Park street, Bristol UK. Jessica Biscoe has moved in and now has a display below mine. I thought it all looked so nice I had to take a photo! Jess's jewellry and accessories biz is called Yiskah Knits and you can find her on FB and Etsy.
  • In our garden, my boyfriend Ben and our cat Arthur. Just chilling on a warm evening.
  • New prints for sale! Here you can see my new 'Wildflowers' print and a section of my 'Golden Finch' print.
  • Sunshine through the tree's on site at the school I work in.
  • Arthur in the bird bath :)
  • The window display of '7th Sea' the new shop on Cheltenham road, bristol. 7th Sea stocks handmade and locally made goodies. I bought a fabulous skirt there yesterday!
  • Looking out through my kitchen window!
  • Reflections and my new 'Bernard the Brave' Tshirt by Bethan Buss of Boodle Boutique. I love it, I never want to take it off, but it's white and I can't keep it clean!!
Do you have any summer plans? I have a lot on but i'm looking forward to it all. It's great to have so many good things going on. I'm going on holidays to France soon too. 8 days in the south of france with friends :) I've got my two Jinty Jones Swimwear Bikinis to take with me! JintyJones Swimwear is designed and produced in the UK by talented designer Laura Redford. Shame I never got round to working on that bikini bod!!

 One of the JintyJones Bikinis I have ready for my hol.

I'm also really looking forward to 'Pop up st Pauls', the pop up shop I'm taking part in from the 4th-11th August in Frome.

And there is also a group exhibition  with the 'Upstairs at BS8' ladies in Bristol to get on with, (i'll let you know about that closer to the time)!

Anyhoo I hope you are all having wonderful sunshine filled days!

Speak soon xx

Lately..A little update

 Foxgloves on Dartmoor, Devon
 Our new challenge, a very over grown and run down allotment!
 My school summer fair, I had a pottery stall and sold things made by the students.
 Geoff, the horse I have on part loan, he's fantastic :)
Packing cards in our shop 'Upstairs in BS8' today.

Some photos from the past two weeks. Apologies for my lack of posts life has been busy. Really busy.

I am a few weeks away from the end of term, which means a few weeks off work for me and I can't wait. It also means I'm a few weeks away from finishing my two part time courses. I'm very much looking forward to having time to make new artwork. August also has a lot of other fun things in store. I am participating in a Pop up shop in Frome in the second week of august. I have a group exhibition in bristol in the 3rd week of August and I am off to France for a week of glamping (posh camping) with some friends!

I know you shouldn't wish time away but roll on August...!
