It’s been so long since I made my last blog post but a lot of things have changed in the past couple of weeks I’m surprised I’ve kept up myself! Me and Jamie have decided to move back ‘home’ so he can pass his driving test and get a car, and so we can save a little money to enjoy ourselves while we’re still young! It was a very hasty decision but one we’re really looking forward to. We have been non stop packing and organizing for the move which will be happening the weekend so I haven’t had much time to create. However, my head has been bursting with ideas and I can’t wait to settle in and start mapping all my ideas out. Fortunately I have a week off work next week to do this, as well as get ready for the Craft Fair I will be doing on the 19th of May in Stourbridge.
Other than packing, I have made progress with my reading challenge. My challenge was to read 100 books this year, and although I started a month and a half late I have managed 27 so far. I am currently reading a book called Heartsick by Chelsea Cain.
….I also managed to do this one painting, which will be up for sale as soon as it gets varnished! It is called ‘Floral Fusion’
Hopefully I can start regularly posting again in a few days time, once everything has been sorted out!

I have been very busy today! After my long stretch of creative block I finally think I am getting out of it. I have painted a 16×16 inch canvas board that I textured a long, long time ago, and 2 9×11 inch thin canvases.
These two are textured with modelling paste and painted in acrylic and emulsion paints. All they need is a varnish and they’re finished! I have called them Twilight Blooms.
This is the painting I did on the canvas board (well, most of it!) I have painted two fairies in a flower garden. I am not yet sure what to call this piece.
They will be available to buy within the next couple of days! Now my mind has had a rest I hope to create a lot more pieces in the near future!
