I now have a little of my wire work on display in a local cafe. Which is pretty cool.

I spent a while on Friday setting out some of my creations in one of the display cabinets at the lovely Fresh Coffee Shop (Dunfermline). It’s a fantastic and very friendly cafe, well worth a visit if you’re local.

Here’s a few wee pictures of how it turned out:

I’m quite glad its all set up now, this week has been a wire week and I’ve been itching to get the paints back out again for another wee play.

On Friday I spent the day helping out at the primary school where my mum works. They were having a “Green Day”, they had a fair with lots of fun activities for the kids (I was roped into painting faces) and afterwards all the kids spend the rest of the day in the school gardens planting and learning about the environment. Lots of fun was had by all.

Aside from painting creepy crawlies/flowers on the faces of dozens of children, my creative activity of the day was more necklace making!

Some nice long ones;

 

I also took a few pictures when I was out walking the hound with Wee Bro;

 


Finished wee project.

Inspired by the sand dunes at Kinshaldy Beach/Tentsmuir Forest, Fife, Scotland.

 

 


A stormy painting inspired by all the rain we (Scotland, specifically Fife) have been having this past few days.


On Tuesday I started a few paintings and made a nice wee beaded necklace.

The paintings are still in progress.

 

Yesterday I finished off a painting I started a week or so ago, it’s nice enough.

 

I’m now trying to decide what todays creative activity will be. Hmm.


A rather nasty migraine yesterday kept me away from my trusty laptop all day, so here is the post I intended to write.

On Monday – taking advantage of the bank holiday – I went a wee trip up to Dundee with the parents, followed by a jaunt to Newport-on-Tay and a short adventure out to Balmerino Abbey. It was nice enough, the weather wasn’t always ideal but that’s to be expected from Scottish weather. I decided to take a few pictures at the Abbey as my” creative thingy of the day”. So, here they are.

I’d like to visit again with my other camera when the weather is better.

On the way home I stopped to take a picture of this guy, he seemed a friendly sort.


Every year some time in the week after Christmas my dads side of the family go on a trip to the beach together, despite the freezing weather. We all head out to Kinshaldy beach (next to Tentsmuir Forest in Fife) and go a long walk along the beach, fulled by hot soup and tea. Afterwards we go back to my grandparents house to warm up, spend some more time together  and usually order take away food.

This year my youngest cousin spent most of the walk gathering shells which I helped her wash at our grandparents house, afterwards she very kindly presented me with her favorite shell in thanks for my help.

The shell has sat on a shelf since the end of December.

I’ve been spending a lot more time with my youngest cousin recently, she’s very clever and sweet. She talks a lot about how much she enjoys gathering shells, she often brings out her collection to show me and offers to share them with me.

Yesterday I decided to take the shell down from the shelf and add it to a wee necklace as a gift for her.

I think she’ll like it.
