It's been a few weeks since I last joined in so I've forgotten which number we're up too ..... oops!

I wish I could say I've been busy in the studio, but sadly that is not the case.  I've had a run of appointments, meetings and boring house-stuff which has kept me busy busy, and even worse, a poorly dog who has just been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing radiation therapy as I write this ... :(

Firstly, my desk today ...

... a colourful display of hearts that I am painting as a commission.  You can see the example on the top left and I will post a pic when they're finished (hopefully in the next few days!!).

This week I also took delivery of a brand new Large Gelli-Plate and I can't wait to get playing with it!!!  Such awesome fun and a great way to relax and 'go with the flow' so to speak.

Until next time, hope you're having a wonderful WOYWW week, courtesy of Julia at The Stamping Ground and I shall leave you with a picture of my gorgeous boy ...

Journalling with Dyan Reaveley

Wow!! What an awesome day I had at The Artistic Stamper a couple of weeks ago.  Dyan came 'down South' to teach over the weekend and whilst I was a bit disappointed not to be able to attend Saturday as well, I can't complain about the day I had!  Dyan is an amazing teacher, great fun, incredibly talented and so generous with her skills and time.  It was an 8-hour marathon of inkiness that flew by and before I knew it, I was back on the M25 driving home :(   Huge thanks also to Jennie at The Artistic Stamper for looking after us all so well and providing such a warm welcome.  I look forward to returning soon.

Post Update ... I'm catching up with some posts, so this is a bit of 'old news' I'm afraid.  It has been great to revisit the adventure though :)

Thanks for visiting and happy painting ...

After all the excitement of last week's Birthday Bash, this week is going to seem somewhat quieter.  I must confess to not having painted much this week, apart from starting a long overdue toybox project for a good friend of mine, pics to follow on that one!  I haven't been resting on my laurels however, as I have been a busy busy bee spring-cleaning my studio!  Now, as I'm sure you can imagine, cleaning is not something I would normally choose to do in my studio, there's far too much temptation to get messy with paint!  Sadly, it had started to take up too much of my creative energy ... I couldn't find things ... I got stuck on projects ... I couldn't make decisions ... and all the time I had loads of half-started, half-a**ed projects sneering at me!  Enough is enough!  I still have some sorting out of old materials and unwanted painting books/magazines to go through but I'm feeling more refreshed and getting my creative buzz back!  Woohoo!

So, my desk shows signs of the clear-out, and it's also in a new position with a window in front and also the side (useful for spotting the postman ha ha).  The Percy Pigs are back from their half-term hols and survived the clear-out... phew!

Well, that's me for now, although I'm very late with this post but at least it is still Wednesday (in the UK anyway...).  To find out more about this desk-hopping lark, visit Julia at The Stamping Ground.

Happy Woyww
