We have had a great weekend, learning tons of new techniques at the Mini Ranger U . Techniques this weekend included everything you could possibly want to know about and do with an Adirondack dabber, the a - z of pigment pearls, dry, wet, spritzed, shimmered, painted, glitzed, grunged,, dyed, sprayed, and then we tripped the light fantastic with inks, Pigment, Dye, Archival, Adirondack, Distresss. In between we laughed, ate, chatted, ate, photographed, tapped toes to music, ate, drank tea, laughed some more, concentrated, sucked lollipops, ate, shopped, shopped, shopped some more, ate and generally had a whale of a time...!!!..d
The Resident bit of Glamour, made an appearance in the shop on Saturday and busied herself with interior designing the kitchen and making gorgeous bunting to hang from the windows. The Goddess has been working a lot of nights at the restaurant so was having a lie in. She did make an appearance later to save me doing major overrings on the till, lol. I am sooooo proud of them, they have turned into proper little ladies...
Full of grace and poise...
Oh okay, maybe not..!!! lol...Haven,t a clue where they get it from...!!!!!

I am finally starting to turn a corner and feel better. Mind you its taken 2 wks... I actually went out again this weekend to 2 soul do,s. Ooh I,m such a gaddabout now arent I.?? I love my Northern Soul music and started going to Wigan Casino from the age of 14 ish and have always tried to still go to do,s. The last couple of years I haven,t been too successful due to work commitments, but I really miss it, so my New March resolution is to give it more importance and to free time to go. I love the music, I love the dancing, I love the atmosphere, I love being with old, old, friends, I love that it makes me feel great. Therefore I feel it is a necessity for my personal and creative growth. Well thats what I,m sticking to lmao.
Just see if you can recognise anyone on this photo...
Yup bottom right hand corner, stretching my neck to see ( was really little back then. ) This was taken at the Casino about 1977/8 I would have been 14/15 at the time. I often remember live acts but cant remember a film crew, at all. This pic was taken from a little montage video, below.
Enjoy and KTF...XX
