I'm always late, permanently. Late getting up, late getting home, late arriving and leaving. I'm also late picking out the person who won the head decoration wotsit - but it's picked, mr random number generator picked number 9, which is Erin! I do not have an email for you so please let me know your address by sending me a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Erin sugested this book which i've been eyeing up for a while actually, it's on my next pay cheque!
Just a wee mention of some of the other books sugested. I am a massive fan of Nabakov which Pen and Paper suggested - I'm keen to read about nabakov so "Speak, memory" sounds good, but the obvious jewel is Lolita
The other writer I wanted to rag about is Angela Carter as mentioned by Lady Lavona! I found her recently and am a total convert. She writes brilliant short stories, and the most interesting articles about women i've ever read.
Thanks guys for the book suggestions, you're going to keep me going!
I bought a beautiful but cracked wooden frame recently and filled them with these two poor wee possums.
I made some new brooches. One inside a silver setting, the other just on it's own with a brooch backing.
I tried out this same technique on a wooden plaque with one of my prints
It doesn't come across well in the photos, but you can see the woodgrain coming through, it's a nice effect.
Also, the King For a Day jumping jack is back with me:
The case painting is finished, not much has changed but it's varnish has finally dried and the butterflies are set in the bottom
I think that's it! There'll be updates to the shop over the coming week with all of these.
