Hello Everyone : )

Ahh I know you saw the email in your inbox’s and the links on twitter and facebook and thought, Oh my she has finally done a post! Cheeky!

I am sorry for been away for the past two weeks but life has taken me away from drawing and playing with bits and pieces to actually almost deciding that I am going to go back to University in September… 

Since I have spent almost four months in school I am thinking of going back to study my PGCE (which is the qualification needed to be able to teach) I want to do secondary education in textiles. But the only thing that puts me off is the mounting costs of fees. So what to do, no permeant job as of yet folks, but I am still applying so continue to watch this space. I know its boring but imagine how I feel tehehehehe! 

I have a freelance project starting next month so that will keep me busy and creative for a month : ) the brief for the project is called “The Intergnerational Textile Project”. More details will follow and hopefully pictures too.

School is going fantastic and I do really like it if you remember from and earlier post about my paper mache fish based on Laurel Burch, well thats nearly complete but I havent been allowed to bring it home yet but when I do I will up load a pic : ) My classes have moved around so now I am aslo cooking I have made chilli, rock buns, savoury rice and bread. Fun times! My other class are making textile kites which is great fun we are using nylon ripstop (the actual materail that kites are made from) to produce fully functional kites. Some of the designs that the kids have created are really good, things from graffiti writting to I love strawberries with millions of tiny little strawberries on; unfortuanlty I am not allowed to photograph the kites so you will have to take my word on it.

Other news… Still eating way to much ahahaha but I have officially lost weight now : ) yey! But I’ve hurt my shoulder in the gym so cant train or swim for a week!

I have been shopping too and brought some really cute dresses for summer have a peek…

Ah second week back tot he daily grind! Fantastic news on all fronts…

School is going well, my paper mache fish is coming on nicely just need to add another layer or mache to it and then paint it up Laurel Burch style!

I have got a placement with in Milton Keynes in two weeks with Argos which is music to my ears all this hard work is paying off : )

Had some interest today in some of my cushions which I am hoping will bring in some money (I have an MOT to pay for along with a new clutch FUN!)

Any ways as promised my Vesper Project, all of which were taken with a standard 15 megapixel fuji camera and no effects have been used, just fantastic natural lighting. All the images are shot as they were found enjoy…ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Monday

First day back to school today for me and I am guessing its back to the daily grind for all of you too after a nice restful Easter break.

So what did you all get up to over the Easter period?

I was busy with relatives from Norway, then I went to visit all my mothers side of the family down south from good Friday until Monday. Then it was straight to the hospital, as my uncles dog bit my finger : (  so I thought I better get it checked out as after I had taken off the plaster my finger looked abit green. After 3 hours at the hospital and £15 odd of prescriptions I was told I had a fracture and an infection FUN! NOT!

The very next day I jetted off to Belgium with friends to celebrate my birthday which was fantastic! I took plenty of pictures of shops, bridges, building and iconic places and will upload asap! Was back by Friday and back at work that same evening!

Anyway so I started back at school today and my first lesson was art! Where my class had been studying Laurel Burch and are now onto making containers / money boxes based on her iconic designs. I also began to do one mine is going to be a container based on fishes. Once completed I will upload a photo and some step by step instructions on how to create a free standing container! My other class is product design where they are producing packaging for a acrylic laser cut 3 legged vase, which has a test tube running through the middle as a vase. But next week we will be starting a textile project of kites excited.com!
