Exciting times...


Its always funny how things turn out really great, especially when you might not be feeling quite so optimistic, but that is just whats been happening to me recently.
As you might remember, in my last post I said about my Dad being ill and how that had kept me away from creating and blogging, well he still is ill, BUT now that we have our little routine sorted, i can now manage to find time for a little art.
Anyway, the other day, whilst probably feeling a little sorry for myself, and a little tired, I happened to check my email account.
You'll never guess, but I had the MOST exciting email from the Editor of Cloth Paper Scissors.
(if you don't know about this publication CLICK ME )
OH MY GOODNESS!
Back sometime in early summer, I sent off an email with some of my artwork and a little explanation about how I made it.  I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.  Well, this email that was sitting in my inbox was even better news than I ever could have dreamed of.  I'm sworn to secrecy right now (says the Editor) but all I can say is that it's going to be an amazing opportunity, and as long as I manage to get in the Christmas post, I should meet the deadline.

I have even more exciting news...
I'm teaching in LIFE BOOK 2013, and such a fantastic line up of teachers too, I'm so excited for this.
CLICK ME to find out more.


(look, I'm one of the 22 'incredible' teachers!)

BUT
that's not all,
the last bit of news I have to share is that my new workshop is now OPEN.
PORTRAIT CANDY started on Saturday!

So excited I can't sit still.
