A Date for your Diary!

I am now booked in for a stall at one of the Haworth Craft Fairs on Easter Sunday, 24th April. Come along to see original artworks, handmade cards, mugs and a little special crafty project I have in mind!
I had a stall here last Easter and the place was full, lots of interesting stalls selling a wide variety of products. Come along, just for a day out and don't be afraid to say hi!

Targets for the New Year

I don't believe in "resolutions", I've subconsciously tried to keep to one for as long as I can remember and that's to not bite my never works! So I shall call them targets that don't involve any sort of pressure and I can see how they go. These are they:

  • to compile a collection of wildlife drawings ready for an exhibition at some point in the year
  • to promote my work at more crafty type fairs
Fingers crossed! (and who knows, maybe they'll even have fully fledged fingernails on soon! :D )
