Early morning thoughts

Hi, I've been awake since the early hours (it's 7.20 now) because my brain seems really overactive with ideas plus my eyes are itchy which is either early hayfever or the anisthetic drops from the optician yesterday.

The urge to sort out my workroom continues, yesterday I refound 30 or so coloured and water soluble pencils and some nice gel pens so I've ordered a large pencil case to house them all together. My paintbrushes have a new home and today I will go through my paint supplies.

I think this is all part of what turned my brain on as when I re find something, I want to use it and start to think of ideas and techniques etc. I'm really not sure what will happen when I start to sort out my sketchbooks! I suspect that my brain may simply explode!

The band of ukulele ladies has grown to 17, here are some of them, I have a couple of straps to finish over the next few days as well.

I'm also still enjoying the colouring books, it's giving me practise with  colour and technique although I have a long way to go. I've not really played around with paints and pens for quite some times and I'm quite rusty and sort of lazy when it comes to drawing something for myself.

However,  I am having lots of fun !!!!

Times now for coffee, have a great Sunday, will speak soon x

Easter plans


I've been full of cold this week and I'm actually really grateful for the fact that I don't work on bank holidays! , today's challenge is to sort out the mess that we call home and to finish some weaving since the rain seems to have set in for the day.

The latest strap is nearly finished which gives me around six that need finishing off and the crowd of ukulele ladies is growing ever bigger :-)

Do any of you have etsy or folksy shops?  I could do with some sort of online sales presence but really small scale as I'm often asked if I sell on line but up to now I've not ventured down that avenue. Any advice would be welcomed. 

Anyway, it's 8 in the morning and I'm off to start tackling this....

Who knows what I may find !!!
