Other Interests
Sharing creative time with the kids
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyHMOUMsBxA - a link to a You Tube slideshow of the glasses which I've been painting over the last year.  The music is by my brother and his friend. All going really well.  I passed my first Ofsted inspection yesterday which means hopefully we'll be having a new addition to the household early next year.  Another child to keep us inpsired! The glasses sold really well before Christmas and I'm taking a little time out now for the children.  I can't stop for too long because a night without a little creativity is like an aching tooth, I have to race back to it again.  I hope everyone is well. Merry Christmas t

Many thanks to everyone who has so kindly added my pictures to their faves over the last few months.  Time is so short that I barely have time to get onto the computer right now for anything but working on my website and Ebay pages.  I'm also officially training to be a childminder now so time will be even more tight.  I'm hoping to take on a small one from September when our four-year-old twins begin school full time.  The plan is that if the paperwork doesn't take over completely I will have more freedom to sell stock I've painted rather than rely on reactive sales.  I'm also hoping to begin working on my own book if I'm not chasing money t

Just popping in for some help today.  Time is very limited right now as the glass orders are picking up.  I've had a wonderful time over the last month packing in the work in the evenings.  This work really suits my lifestyle as the commissions only take a small amount of time and if I get too overburdened I can put a temporary halt on the sales.  Far easier than working on a book commission to a tight deadline with five little ones to run around after!  I'm certainly not turning my back on the illustration but this is a very good temporary stop-gap and I've already managed to increase my prices twice so it's bringing in welcome pennies too.
