From small beginnings!

Most people around my children’s school know me or know of me, some of them know that I’m a creative type, with only a few who really know what I get up to in my few, precious moments of spare time. So when the opportunity of the school art show came up, I thought I would exhibit the pieces that I did a few years ago to show my creativity.

It’s quite a nerve wracking experience, it is like showing your soul but you know let people in and they can surprise and lovely things can happen.

I had many sales from the exhibition which made my heart jump for joy including this lovely stained-glass inspired piece using ripped paper and another exhibition is now in the pipeline.

As well as exhibiting at the art show, my lovely friend and I were in charge of decorating the hall in a rainbow of paper star garlands. It was an art installation in itself!!  The end result was amazing and it was a shame to take it down when the show was all over but it wouldn’t have survived the boy’s indoor soccer!

Well until next time.

My First Custom Order!!

I was very excited on Monday to receive my very first custom order on Etsy. A lovely customer wanted bunting in peaches, pinks, golds and creams. I worked with her with all the different colour combinations and finally came up with a Peach, Pale Peach and Cream combination in my triangular bunting range for her daughter’s birthday.stamp-Lilibet StanleyI enjoyed packaging the order up and just hoped it would meet with her approval!
