‘Art at The HeART’ Erewash

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

As mentioned before I have been lucky this year to have the opportunity to be part of the ”Art at The HeART’ Erewash. I attended 5 free workshops and learned about working with people with Dementia and had the great time shadowing an Artist at  Midway Hospital Ilkeston. I had the chance to run a ‘Drawing for Wellbeing Workshop! Please see Photos…

On my annual holiday to Devon, I was sitting on the beach and there was thousands of tiny jelly fish, this inspired me to draw- This is just one of the many pages of jelly fish out of my doodle dairy -I had a very jolly doodle that day!

I’ve been in a real whirl wind of work…Papers have been flying, steam has been coming off my pencil, ideas and butterflies flying around my head and know leaves are falling off the trees.

I have had some relaxing times too in the next few blog posts I hope to bring you up to speed with everything…..

March- were did March go?

On March the 10th it was my birthday , to celebrate we went to away for the weekend to Centre Parcs -Sherwood Forest.

We had a lovely time we had a special treat as we spent one afternoon in the Aqua Sana Spa rooms, with a combination of different spa rooms to explore and a warm outside  swimming pool to relax in , even the sun shone for us!

My Favourite room was the Greek Herbal Bath Room followed by a scented cool shower , it was heaven!

We ate out most evenings and on Sunday night we had a french dinner with a jazz band playing in the back ground.

Yes I did go down the big sides,  the rapids and  inflatable dinghy ride, I was a big kid for the weekend, but seriously realised I’m very unfit. Riding a bike was very hard work, I think really the gears weren’t working properly!!

The nearest I got to drawing when I walked past these giant sized pencil fence-thinking this would look great at the back of our house!!

I did a favour for a friend and made some badges for her daughters Birthday Party, The theme was  a Prom Party and had instructions to make badges saying Prom Queen, Prom Princess, Cool Dude and for my friend and husband Prom Queen Mum and Cool Dude Dad. My friend was delighted with them.

Happy Friday & Belated Best Wishes for the New Year!

I’m So Sorry it’s BEEn along time, I’ve got lots to tell you………

I’m involved with the Quad Derby and really gaining lots of experience helping and designing workshops the people there are a lovely bunch to work with,  I have  already got a few really successful workshops under my sleeve. I’ve designed and ran , titles such as  Books that  Flip, Spin & Pop-up and  a Doodle Fun, I’ve got loads more ideas for other workshops, so watch this space!!

The Quad in Derby is a really Creative Friendly place , it’s well worth a visit.

I’ve also got a few other Freelance Jobs on the go from Wall Charts to Number books.

This Year I’ve had another  Grant application accepted so that I can continue to have marketing advice from Piu Ltd and update the wording to my website to add to it the extra services I can provide such as Workshops, Graphic Design, Picture Minutes!! My Friend Eileen Parr is putting pen to paper this very minute.

This week we’ve just had new windows put in at home and my husband has decided to put brush in paint and decorate the house…..he’s starting with the bathroom.
