Thanks for your comment Jude, its reminded me that I haven't sent out the letter for this weekends Art Journal course. Oooooops, I would like to pass the buck and blame someone else, But unfortunately I can,t. So big, big sorry's and I,ll do it on here now.
You don,t need to bting anything except a black pen for doodling ( I use Pilot V5), a black sharpie, personal photos and ephemera if required, and your usual basic cratfing items, ie, glue stick, scissors,etc. A crop-a-dile is also real handy. I.ve stocked up on tissues and , bezzie Su cover your ears, blue lollies....
The snow is here again, so it will get chilly, wrap up warm in layers with something warm on your feet - concrete floor.!!
The class starts at 7.30 Fri evenig. Please try not to arrive at the studio befor 7.15pm, as me and Our Em's are usually still frantically teararsing around sorting out food and preparing the final touches. And although it is always lovely to stand and chat with you, I get distracted far too easily...
I am really looking forward to the weekend, and hope you all are too. There is only one sleep left and then you are here. If you have any spare newspapers they are always welcome.
My body clock still wont seem to kick into gear, hence the 3.30 blogging..!! As Tubbs would say " ooh me insides are all wrong", but I,m just going with the flow. Theres no point worrying my pretty little head off about it is there??? Anyway it means that I did finally get the brochure written and they are online now HERE. I,m not sure if the photos are up yet, if not they will be by tomorrow as Our Ben has taken the photos.
I have been given a moving date for the new studio, the 8th Mar, and so it will be all hands on deck. Any volunteers will be received with gratitude, as it is going to be a mammoth undertaking. One that I can't think about without coming out in cold sweats and hives. Still it will be an ideal time to get to the bottom of everywhere and tip loads. Or as my Dad used to say "Lets give it a damm good sort out and side it all away again" .!! The pay for volunteers will be lousy, but there will be copious amounts of tea and biccies and you will get to rummage through all the skips at the end of each day. Anybody who comes with a handyman hubby is doubly welcome, lol... I,ve been round it today, just to check I hadn't imagined some things, but yes, it still has acuall windows that we can see out of. It has a carpet instead of cold concrete, and like manna from heaven above it has radiators. Ph yes actual big, working radiators.. Woop de woop.!!!
Decided to have a change from journaling tonight. Can you guess what I,ve been up to..??? This is what my bed looks like at the moment.
and heres some peeks.
Thats right I am doing some canvas's for the walls. This one measures 12 x 40 in and I am loving it. It is supposed to be a self portrait, but it was the best I could do. It's nowhere near finished yet. I need to doodle and paint all the border and add all my little quirky touch's. Ha ha can you see me wearing a jacket like that..??? Maybe if they had it in black, lmao. but would deffo wear the leggings and boots. Actually come to think about it I already do, much to Ben's disgust, lol. It must be a real hindrance having a Mother like me whos as mad as a box of frogs and doesn,t conform to the stereotypical. I think he keeps hoping that I adopted him at birth and that his real Mother will turn up one day to claim him back. She will wear appropriate clothing and comfy sensible shoes, she will never enbarass him and will remain calm and polite at all times. She will have a sedate hobby, that doesn,t take up too much of her time and have never heard of piercings and tattoos. What do you think..??? I think he'd miss me really and come running on back, lmao. I can just see him reading this and muttering to himself..!!!! I think hes probably given up all hope, personally.!!
Sooo what now, Box set Hustle..?? Art Journal pages..??? Doodling on Canvas..???Ironing..??? Aaargh how did that slip in..??? Now don't get me wrong , I have never minded ironing, and as you have come to expect from many issues Dyan, I have to iron everything, oh yes everything. If I go away anywher the first thing I do when I get to the hotel , is take it out of the suitcase, iron it and hang it up. Then repeat when I get home even if its never been worn..!!! Its just I dont fancy getting it out just yet.
Right I think theres a chunk of date and walnut bread, with my name on it whispering to me from the kitchen. Methinks I need to go investigate. would you like me to get you anything whilst I,m there, lmao
