Just a quickie
Yet another busy day today. At last a smaller class. Just lately they have all been massive and although that always means great fun, it is always really hectic for me. So I was really looking forward to the calmer atmosphere. Well I,ve never had such a quiet class. They were concentrating so much that I had to remind them to breathe, lol. They still were capable of making a mess though !!. Just look at the tables...
From L-R Hazel, Jen, Jill and Angela.
L-R Jill, Julie and Dawn.
Then onto the kids classes. I just had to show you this pic of Claudia with her fabulous woman collage. Very Beryl Reid , don't you think..??
And Sophie has finally finished her paper mache course work. Its going on display in the main hall. And so it rightly deserves.
Finished early tonight so I am treating myself with my new collage books. Could be here a while...
Hi there everyone, sorry I am late in posting the winner of my birthday comments. I am currently entertaining the lurgy, which is far far ov...
Words to live by
Life is too short to be anything but happy,
So kiss slowly, love deeply, forgive quickly.
Take chances, never have regrets.
Forget the past, but remember what it taught you.
I,m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I,m out of control and at times hard to handle, but if you cant handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell dont deserve me at my best...Marilyn Monroe.
Who am I?

I have a large teaching and design studio in the north of England, where I teach a variety of eclectic classes. I also travel teaching around Europe,and recently America, where I am well known for my innovative and down to earth style.I am the International Senior Educator for Ranger Industries and my mission is to introduce everyone to the fabulous therapy that is Art journaling... phew no wonder I am worn out!
