It's that time again!  Wednesday's blog-hopping day of fun, nosy-ing and general all round spreading of love and cheer!  It's great to visit other sites and see what everyone is up to and admire all their fabulous crafty-ness.  No matter how you're feeling about your own work, whether you're going through a brain-numbing slump or celebrating masses of creative energy, it never fails to raise a smile and lift the spirits.    So thank you Julia Dunnit of The Stamping Ground, for creating and hosting this inspirational blog-fest.  And huge thanks also to every single blogger who visits and leaves comments, your words inspire me so much.  One of these days I hope to manage to get around EVERY single blogger on the list ... no mean feat I can tell you!  Especially when my paint and brushes are calling me .........

So, what's going on today ....

... the view from my desk to my worktable.  I cleared this up late yesterday because I had made such a mess that I only had about a 6" space to work in!  On it are the pieces that I am creating for a BIG event on Sunday (but more about that later...).  In the foreground, there is a pile of gelli-plate printing pet silhouettes that form part of Sunday's projects,  a cute paw print stamp, some pre-prepared die-cuts in a container and an array of bits and pieces that I haven't yet decided what to do with!  Oh and let's not forget the Percy Pigs ... : D

On Sunday I am launching a series of mixed media designs that incorporate pet images/photos that can be personalised.  I am taking a table at the Rescue Me Fun Day which is a charity event raising funds for animals in rescue centres, waiting to be re-homed.  I am donating 20% of my takings that day to the funds and using the event as an opportunity to get some feedback on this new range of designs.  I've been thinking about these for a while and created a few one-off commissions but this is the first time I've actively promoted it.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed .....!!

Have a great week my fellow bloggers and I'll let you know how it all goes.

Happy painting ...

  1. good luck with your table at the charity event.... this table looks a little busy!! Helen 2

  2. Lovely photo of your desk Liz - It made me want to visit for real! If I could just reach those Percy Pigs........maybe next time! I have just bought a Gelli Plate so I am going to have a look around your blog to see if I can pick up some tips! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 33

  3. Like the photo of both your tables - shows works in progress to works completed. Still haven't tried out my gelli plate ... maybe now that I'm on the mend I'll make an attempt. Like the puppy piece on the top. Good luck with the charity event ... hope you raise oodles of funds ;) Have a great WOYWW and an enjoyable week. Elizabeth x #53

  4. You are so creative Liz am sure your designs will be a sell out on talking about Gelli makes me want to get mine out and have a play. Have a great Wednesday.
