Hello from your “very bad at blogging” friend!

Hi, hi…..I’m just sneaking in here very apologetic. I know I said wayyyyyyy back at Easter that I would update and stuff, but I didn’t. I’m here now though. Back at college, but gosh the end is in sight, oh yes. Thank goodness! 7th June is the final day, and I still have to squeeze in a work placement plus a handful of exams – eeeek!

I wanted to share some sunshine with you. Its been sorely missed of late, so I walked slowly back from college today, enjoying the warmth (no jacket was worn – the first time ever this year!) I looked at the trees as they struggle to hurry up with the blooming phase.

I always enjoy branches against a sky.

I went to the beach the other day – again in the magical sunshine (I actually paddled in the water…..!) and I came across this. Mother Natures Art……I had no hand in this composition. I think its beautiful.

On the creative front, I made yet another terrible doll. I call this the Eternally Happy Doll, haha! I was trying some new attachment idea for the limbs so they swing separately from the body (just in case you thought I hadn’t sewn the arms on very well!) I painted the clothes, and the hair and the face. Tried to make it look like a 3D drawing sketch, if that makes sense.

wee face pillowThis is a weird little pillow cushion wall hanging I made. Just thread and sharpie marker on a stuffed piece of fabric. I was playing with pin cushions ideas, but as this ended up about 8 inches high, it became a wall hanging, heh!

stripey mirrorFinally we have the Zebra Mirror. Its a work in progress since I need to straighten up the black edges and do another layer before I varnish it all yet, but considering the wood was dark and scratched from its previous home, I had to rescue it from the charity shop and make it different.

So that’s it really. Studies——-> blast of creativity————> studies. That’s my life right now. Not that I’m complaining…….much *ahem* 🙂

  1. oooh that’s a great tree blossom photo, so pretty and nicely contrasted against the very blue sky… We in the warmer temperature zone (California) already had the blossoms 2 months ago.
    I really like the giant pointy-head pincushion thing. . clever & whimsical! Thanks for sharing.
