you really, really need to blog hop and see...

Blimey, blimey O'Riley..!!!! some of my gorgeous, gorgeous, Art journaling ladies have put write ups on their blogs and some fantastic pictures to go with them. Think I,ll be purloining some of the pics!!!

Heres some links for you to go and peruse at your leisure. Please make their day and leave them a lovely, lovely comment.

The lovely Jude

The lovely Sandra

The lovely Janet

The lovely Emma

Pinched these 2 pics from Judes blog of me and her. We met in Macduff last Aug, she was with her mate Kirstiwithani . and we  all really hit it off..

 We seem to have the same taste in long socks, lmao.

I have been down to the new studio today, checking on the progress and yes we have radiators

and windows

and access to the open air and outside world..!!!!

look how big and bright it is

I have decided that the built in room I was going to use as a classroom is too small for my liking....

So I am having it knocked down and another one built instead. Bigger and better of course. It eill be much easirt to keeep warm and to avoid any distractions..  Heres Danny setting to with the lump hammer.

We are also having a new ceiling with much better lighting.

well thats one way of getting it down.!!

Pam even has her own little kitchen to play in...I can see me being banned straight away...But I,ve given her a bonus, - a hot tap to play with to her hearts content. All heart, me..!!!

so whilst keeping an eye on the builders, can you guess what else I am up to..??

Ok have you guessed yet..??? Heres another clue..

Still not got it..????

Yup its another one of my funny people. I am making this life size to hang outside the new Studio door. Think it will be sooooo cool when it is finished. I did a lot of the doodling tonight whilst the regular Tuesday ladies did their thing, but forgot to photo it. Will need to crack on in the morning because we are having a few very busy days coming up. More about those later on....Ooooooh is the suspense killing you..??? lmao. You need to go make a cuppa tes and have a word with yourself..!!!

Ok theres a Wispa bar calling me, so gotta dash....will leave you with an old fave Northern song...

Enjoy xx

The new studio looks fab. I love the lifesize painting as well. Still think a Maisie one would rock though. Will blog hop later as work calls, must pay for paint somehow!

Jude said...

Love the look of the new studio - it looks immense!! Canvas looks fab, you should definitely get a coat like that...maybe if you get enough Cath Kidston swatches you make a patchwork one!?! xx

Sandra Hall said...

What size?????? I know you said you were going to do a big one but that is BIG! Feel so excited about that studio... it looks BIG (mmm a bit of a BIG theme going on here!)

Anyway, what's Kirsty on about 'crappy wigan' for? doesn't she know about the hallowed Casino (I know, I know Kirsty...its a carpark now!!!) Great 'Wade in the Water' sound BTW.

Got an hour free to play, so gonna art journal....get this....I'm going large!!! Might feel brave enough to post if it turns out ok!!!

Looks like a great new space. I Hope I can make it to help you move. Will stop back in when we get back from the states. ps, Love the new Art work!

Wow the new studio looks FAB! the painting looks even fabber (?) would love to help you move could come on the 9th???

Unknown said...

Dear Dear Dy, why would we not put fab things on our blogs about you and yours at AFTH. You all make us feel so welcome. I love it that you don't have 'normal shop' things at yours like peeloffs. I have done two workshops and love them. Unfort I will not be able to help you move but will be able to come and see you when I come up for the show at the end of March.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Emma xx
