Busy Busy

Been busy stocking up for the shop seen as I'm still waiting on the warrant, thankfully I have an understanding builder, the hardest part is coming up with the designs I'm pleased with what I'm creating at the moment. It's funny how your colour mood shines through these where done when the weather was really yuck outside I think I was longing for the summer with all the lovely bright colours LOL

Blog Award

My ickle blog received an award :) from the lovely Toni although I don't feel worthy at all.

I'm to pass this Artey Pico award on to five other worthy bloggers and what a task!!

My first Monkee Maker well it's actually a cheat this one as she has a fabby blog full of fun & a great shop!

My second has to be the wonderful Inge she has amazing styles it is alway a treat to vist her blog.

My Third is the lovely Andrea this chick has her finger on the pulse and alway one step ahead & it's not surprising that so many design teams want her on board

Number four is the Mojo Team where you will have to make sure you have a few hours spare and a large cuppa believe me you'll be a while

Last and by no means least I have to give the 5th award to the gal I'm been following for many years Jo Kill she has such a great tallent & I love all her work

My Pottery

Now don't laugh but these are my first creations from my pottery course, lined up in order of their creation, as you can see I did make some progress LOL I'm having great fun my tutors Brain & Fiona are fab and always willing to pass on their knowledge and help when it's needed- and that's a lot!!
Last week I progressed onto bowls which I loved, I was really desperate to get throwing again and was really nervous about throwing a bowl but once Fiona showed a tip for pulling up away I went, I think I threw about 10 all in lovey different size's. I'm getting that bad that I'm wishing my week away so I get to Tuesday and the next stage, this will be the leather work where you get to trim your work and add and decoration to it before letting it dry out, it's fab fun too so roll on Tuesday :)
I am very lucky as I'm inheriting a potters wheel from my hubby's Mum who unfortunately died a while ago hence taking the course, she done amazing work with porcelain & was a great artist. I am giving a new home to a wheel, two kiln's, books & all the tools I need I just hope I can do it all justice :)

Challenge 6

Well I'm back to the land of the living and somehow managed to get my craft room in some sort of order and a card made for Sugar Nellie

Well the card above is for the challenge but I took a visit to Funky Kits bricks & mortar store today and made the purchase of this fab little monkey below and just had to have a play..

... I will confess he wasn't the only thing I bought, Sk8ter boy, fishing Luca & Hamish couldn't bare to be apart from Monkey so they just had to come along too LOL like I need an excuse!!!
