This weeks news...

It's been a busy weekend so far. Saturday was our workshop preview and taster day for the Spring workshops. Obviously there was a Christmas theme in the air.!!

This is my Harry Worth impression..

I have been promising to make Kaz a frock for nearly a year, and I finally got round to finishing it. This is her lady like pose...

In fact I got quite a few of the staff and tutors into frocks, lol

The lovely Teresa and her girls made their usual to die for cakes

and cake pops

and more cakes.

Just check out this absolutely stunning ceramic piece that the lovely Bry and Donna made for me. Every bit of the clock, heart and embellishments are ceramic. Although I am smiling here, when they first presented it to me I was so overwhelmed that I cried. It really is a stunning piece and I am so honoured that it is now mine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you want to see some more of their work pop over to their website Bad Ceramics.

The lovely Sandra in our matching cardies. I am holding a card with a drawing of me as an angel, lol. It was drawn by the lovely Michelle and it is such a good likeness of me it is uncanny, lol.

Kate getting into the swing of things

A mahoosive thank you to all of you who came and booked on the workshops, we so appreciate all your support. Also a ginormous thanks to all the staff and tutors who make it all possible.

Debbie said...

Wow Dy what great photo's. Love seeing all your fabulous dresses (oh I used to love wearing all the vintage stuff, don't do it now, but you look so great in it, and carry a dress well girl!)

Just had a parcel from your Ben and it was wrapped beautifully as always. I managed to get your Nutcracker star book and instructions (how lucky am I, as it sold out pretty quick).
Just looking at your workshops for next year, so cannot wait to come see you all at the Towers!
Have a super Christmas and New Year, and tell Ben we love his jumper!
Enjoy your time abroad and don't get too cold.

Wow, that all looks fabulous! Can't wait till I can get up to your neck of the woods to visit the shop! Just got your journal this weekend and I'm looking forward to inking up the first page! That shop in Norway looks amazing, I think I could get lost in wonderland there easily! Hope you have an amazing time there and that you have a fabulous and blessed Christmas too.

And FUN was had by all!

My Studio Voice said...

Fun photos. I want to visit that store! The clock is AWESOME and beyond. It always appears you are having the most fun ever, which translates to smiles for all of us when seeing your photos.

I love the dress you made, the fabric is amazing, also the ceramic piece with clock is amazing :)

Michelle Webb said...

You really did pack a lot in your weekend didn't you! You're always on the go, it's great to see, and very interesting to read. That's the only picture I took of your card, because I was making it well into the wee hours. So didn't get a chance to take a good picture. That car is shamazing in the middle of the shop. Why are we the only country that squashes everything into tiny spaces? I love seeing all that expanse of shopping space. Mind you, I think the shopping trolley could be dangerous in my hands though. It would be filled pretty quickly. I feel a trip over coming on. Michelle x
