Anyone there?!

It's a bit echo-ey round here. Sorry. I've not been crafting much - my mojo was lost which isn't good when I had a long list of things I wanted to make for the stall! Then I was asked to go back to Ardfin to paint murals in the bedrooms.



I was introduced to them a few years ago by my neighbour who suggested me for a mural they wanted painting in the hallway. I'm afraid I went a little mad and painted Nemo, Dorey, Rainbow fish, great big octopi, little mermaids etc along with hundreds of little fish! If you go onto their virtual tour on the website you can see part of it! I've been back several times now to paint the fence outside (not the mural on their virtual tour I hasten to add!), living room, afterschool club and now the bedrooms. I'll show you the photos of the other rooms later.




For now these are the pictures from the 'in the air' bedroom. I really love how the dragon came out. I used Dustin Pike's Dragon and floating monkey - I couldn't help it as they were perfect for a kids' bedroom.

I'm back in the craft room. I have a month before my next fair at Ayrshire Arts & Crafts and a long list of things I want to replenish and create. Can you believe this will be Valentines time?!

I was looking for some of my older cards on the blog to see how I'd done the clouds and realised I've not actually posted them! So here's a couple. The planes are from a set of wall art diecut shapes from Poundland last year - along with the pirate ones I did show! They're A5 in size, although one or 2 of the images are too big for that so I'm having to make A4 cards!!

Happy New Year!

Just popping in to quickly wish everyone a very happy new year. I hope 2011 is infinatly better than 2010 for everyone!!

I'm having a well deserved break from crafting and fairs for Christmas and new year, but I've already done a stock take and anaylsed my sales for last year. So now I have a plan of what to make, what not to bother with and ideas for new stuff. Pity I haven't got my accounts up to date though!

I can hear the call of the craft room getting louder though so will start the creative cogs turning again very soon! Then I will have more pictures for you all!
