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.
I spent Saturday morning happily painting and making.
It was a real treat being able to spend time being arty and crafty.
The painting was just a wee one of Castle Cambell and the Ochil Hills as a wedding gift for a friend. A little bit of Scotland for them to take to their new home together in London.
I also made a nice seaglass necklace and earring set.
I’m looking forward to try and get some more arty time this Saturday….now just to think of a project…hmm…paints? Jewellery? Wire?
I’m busy today getting ready for a weekend away.
I’m heading up north (somewhere near Pitlochry, Scotland) for a family get together, it’s a big year for significant birthdays and wedding anniversaries so we decided a weekend away together would be a great way to celebrate.
So here are yesterdays creative projects and hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to keep up the creative activities while I’m away.
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;
Wow, the hot sunny weather just doesn’t seem to be going away!
It has distracted me a bit from blogging though, but I’m sure I can be forgiven as I’ve still been making pretty things.
Thursdays creative activity was making these two lovely necklaces;
They were prizes for a eco/green themed raffle at the school my mum works at.
Recently lots of my paintings and other creative projects have been a bit brighter and child friendly, lots of robots, dinosaurs, coloured beads, fun things. They are fun to create and I guess it reflects whats on my mind just now. I’ve been spending lots of time with my lovely wee cousin. She’s six, she’s fun. She likes beads and flowers and robots and dinosaurs. She is waiting very patiently for her new little brother to be born and we’re all hoping he’ll be healthy.
I like brightening her day with my creations.
