....the sunshine has been wonderful..it makes everybody smile more especially the gardeners who have been waiting for the sunny days to plant all their plants..the smell of BBQ's fills the air..summer dresses and white legs!!(that's my legs)..and the strange custom that some British men have of taking their shirts off in public(when maybe some of them shouldn't!!)
..i wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely kindness, flowers,cards and goodies..i'm one of those strange creatures that when i'm not doing too well i kinda want to hide away till everything is ok again..but the nature of the work i love and do means being under the spotlight..so if i don't seem to be showing how chuffed i am i can promise you inside i really couldn't be without everyone.."the hill" is my creative world and all the people that visit are more like family..
..you know how i talk about "life's lovelies"..well here is another one..Mary..
so generous with her smiles,knowledge and fun..and a wonderful grandma too
(this is the talanted Lorna's Grandma)..she is holding the cupcake notice board that she was frightened i would charge rent for!!
..this was one of my gifts this week from a very talented artist..i LOVE LOVE LOVE this canvas
i can pretend that i am the crafty princess behind the door..sometimes i wonder if she thinks i'm mad!..she teaches me things when i watch her work because the nicest thing about her is that she doesn't realise how good she really is..
..this canvas appears on the Creative Friends Blog this week along with a mini tutorial for young artists on simple drawing
..a sample for the shop that was finished this week with the help of my daughter Amy who along with all my family has been helping so much "on the hill"..this would make a fab gift for a wedding,anniversary,valentines or just because
..a sneak peek at the new shape of the month for June..loving the possibilities with this shape..all will be revealed on Friday....
