a new day a new plan





Okay after much pressure and everyone asking if I had a blog (turns out I have 3 on blogger alone!!) I have decided to get this up and running - not sure how often I will post but as often as I can or to remember to anyway. I have some pictures of my art to share so what better way to get started.





The two shrines were done under the gentle guiding hand of Michael deMeng, what a wonderful wonderful man he is. I am sure I had all sorts of preconceived ideas about what he would be like (oh and I knew he wasn't gay as I knew he was dating one of our Aussie girls Judy ) but I didn't expect such an inspiration, I love the work I have done with him and will do more at home, I think even my DH was impressed as he even went out and got me a dremel when I said I had to get one for my birthday or something. I could go on all day how utterly fantastically inspirational I found this workshop, but ....well okay maybe in another post LOL.





I also completed a class with Nina Bagley the copper booklace, which I have yet to finish and with Lesley Riley, again I have yet to finish these projects but I will get there eventually as I am feeling inspired to create, my muse has woken from the very deep slumber she has been in for the last couple of months. Okay better try uploading some photos to this now!!! So will sign off, I also have groceries to put away still LOL.
