Happy New Year….! I know it’s a bit late….

I am a month late with this ‘Happy New Year’ blog post, but since I haven’t actually posted anything in about 6 months (probably more) I thought I’d let myself off with it!

I have had an interesting few months, there’s been plenty of ups and tons of downs, but me and Jamie are finally getting ourselves back to normality in our new place. In the past 9 months I have moved house 3 times and had 2 new jobs, not to mention some pretty difficult situations in general, including very recently developing severe back pain. Me and Jamie have stuck together through out though, and come out stronger than ever.

Because of all these changes and stresses, I have been unable to focus on my artwork, which resulted in a creative block that I have really struggled to get out of. I miss being able to sit at my own art space and create something fresh and new, so I have decided to dedicate this year to get back on track, set up a new art space and get stuck in with some new paintings!

Although I have attracted a lot of followers online, I would love to be able to do more Craft fairs this year. Jamie passed his test last year and I intend to take advantage of the easy transport to do some craft fairs over the Spring and Summer in the local area!

I have missed interacting with my fans, and seeing all the amazing artwork you all create too, so I am looking forward to getting re-united and involved!

Craft Fair Preparation

I am currently preparing for my first craft fair of the year. It is being hosted by the West Midlands Crafters, a group I started last year for Artists and Crafters in the West Midlands area. It is the second one we are organizing, and hopefully will be a really successful event!

It is going to be held at the Light House (Old CHUBB building) in Wolverhampton on the 10th of March 2012, 10am to 4pm. For more information on the craft fair click here. 

This is a picture of the first craft fair I did. I am currently working on some new mini paintings ~ some on canvas board and others on 10cmx10cm canvases. I am also going to be working on some Art Journals, affordable art prints of my sold original pieces and some laminated bookmarks.

I am really excited for this fair – there’s going to be so many amazing crafters there, in such an amazing venue! If you live local to me it would definitely be worth checking out!
