Ooops, yes I know I've been missing in action. Mixture of up to my eyeballs in work, actually having a life and socialisng, and getting the lurgy.... Sorry if you missed me..
I have, in the meantime, been working extremeley hard on workshops for the preview day Sat 26th March. There are some fabby classes for you all and I am dying to show you but Our Ben has strapped a restraining order on me, lol. We will be holding workshops n the studio on preview day and I will give you the details shortly.
Many of you will have heard of World Book Day, Mar 3rd. This year the first ever World Book Night was launched, with one million books being made available to give away. I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the book givers and I have 48 copies of my chosen book to give away.
I am an avid reader and always have been and the book I chose is Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes. I stumbled across this book and instantly fell in love with the author and her wonderful way of storytelling. She is well documented as being an recovering alcoholic and suffers desperately from severe depression, and yet writes the most fantastic novels.
If you would like to become the proud owner of one of these books and become part of history, then here s what you have to do.
1. Unfortunately you need to be local to me as I have no provision for posti ng out to you.
2. You need to think about a book that you would recommend others to read, and bring me a copy nto the studio. (This needn't be a new copy)
3.Insert a little note into the book about why you think others would enjoy it.
When I have 48 books donated I will let you all know, and then you need to come back for your FREE copy of Rachels Holiday plus one of the donated books. So you will be getting 2 books for the price of one, so to speak. The sooner we get the books in, the sooner I can get them back out again.
Right I am off to write in each of the 48 copies its unique World Book Night number.
