Eleanor Roosevelt from Quotes on Design by Chris Coyier
“Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself”.
I just love that quote.
Well, its been a very busy two weeks, hence no blogging. I’m teaching a course for the WSD in August 2011 in Edinburgh, where I proposed to teach a variation on my original Towers of Flowers
When I put in the proposal I notes that I couldn’t show them actual pictures of the new towers because of the studio situation (it was all in my head in fine detail and colour).
Well last week I had an email asking for photo’s by the 23rd April for the Journal!!! Panic. I never dreamt they would ask for this 18 months in advance and 3 weeks is short notice for a labour intensive project.
So, 3 weeks notice, two of which are school holiday weeks (so I’m mum 24/7), with a few days away and the third week I’m out for 3 days with other commitments.
So I’ve had to work after 6pm when DH finishes his work and all weekends.
Not quite the relaxing holiday I was envisaging.
Here I am beading and watching podcasts on the Ipod….
Painting paper with moonshadow mists and gold acrylic paint….
About to start construction….I’m almost finished now but have run out of brads and despite a 100mile round trip to Hobbycraft I still don’t have any. I’ve sourced some on the web and hope they arrive quickly.
Once I have the brads I have a few hours work and then I’m finished and ready to photograph.
I’ve put my bright cheery bunting up at the windows as I was beginning to feel as if I was in a prison cell….
During the week days DS and I have been playing all sorts of new games – target practise, trampoline games, going for walks and looking at sheep.
Today we are getting arty and then DS and I are packing our bags for a trip.
More sheep pictures to follow, cute as ever.
