Today was cleaning day , after I'd finished the bedroom I went to make a cup of tea and saw this beauiful rainbow! it was huge and arched all the way over the buildings and carpark below. I've not seen a huge raindow like this for years and years, It quickly disappeared but just had time to grab the camera and take some pictures.

Catch Up

Hello, Ive been up to some bits and bobs of late, mostly crafty things. As I said in my previous post Mrs Snail and I shared a stall at the Cheap Affair event last Sunday. We had a great time and I had lots of fun making stuff to sell, we have some more stalls lined up over the next few months (more info soon) so this is the beginning of my crafty wares. I had some A5 prints, teatime badges and lino prints greetings cards. I took some pictures of the very messy process, I used soft cut lino which is brilliant stuff; to cut down on the distractions I just chose to do images of things that I like and to use my two favourite colours.

I was really happy with how they turned out and I will be doing some more larger, detailed lino cards throughout this month. Ive also included some close ups of the prints, badges and mini cards all packaged up. They arent the best quality photos as my camera doesnt like close up but they should do for now.

If anyone has any feed back on my work please feel free to post, this is my first real attempt at having my own mercandise and I'd really like to do more but sometimes I'm unsure about what works and what doesnt. I'd appreciate any advice :)

Go Red

I went Red as part of the creative collaboration Go Red! organised by The Partners for Richard House, London's first Children's Hospice. The idea was for different artists to design one section be it the head, body of legs so that they can all be mixed up together to make some awesome characters. All designs are to be sold in an auction at the end of this month and there will also be a gallery show to showcase the designs too. Please check out the links as there is some fantastic artists involved and Go Red!

As you can see I got excited and did all of the sections but I do like this chap a lot
