A Reflection…..

This time last year I started this blog having just got my youngest off to high school and with me starting full-time work in my shed.Image

It began with me “procrastinating” over a wasp nest and getting distracted by lemon drizzle cakes in order to avoid getting stuck in to my jobs.

Well, only a little has changed in a year, I am still easily distracted by a cake but this year I was desperate to get back into my shed.

I had been secretly counting down the days for…..(well quite a few days)….. when my off-spring would go back to school. And then my other half announced that HE was going to work from home!

My rant went something like….”6 weeks …blah-blah.. peace…food….space….blah-blah”. You get the picture; I was a little touchy.

ImageAnyway, it is now Friday. I am on my day of peace and solitude. And I am tired. I have been cutting, foiling, soldering, grouting, drilling, grouting, scrubbing and lots of other ‘ing’ things and so my rest is to type this up whilst having a brew.

And the reason for me being so industrious is that next week I will be busy setting up a ‘pop up Gallery’. I am joint organizer of the ‘Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail’ and some months back I thought it would be a good idea to involve us, as a group, in another art trail called ‘c-art’.

C-art takes place throughout Cumbria and is huge. We are the ‘SAACT Pop-up Gallery’ and you can find us at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre in Silverdale, Venue Number 96. I am very excited about it and have been hassling all the 22 exhibitors to get there delivery notes in so that we can get some lovely labels made. (And this is a little big coming from me who hasn’t even decided what I am showing yet!)

Hence the industry. Fifteen beautiful things I need of a varied price range, plus I have orders to fill! (Tired shoulders). Check out my progress…..Image

Flocks of birds in various stages of construction….Image

Ummm. Perhaps a nice manicure is in order!Image

And check out the poor bristles on my ‘scrubbing’ brush….Image

But hey, I am loving it. And bring on next week where you are all cordially invited to come along!.

Check out the dates here on our wee flyer.

It really will be lovely to see you all!Image
