Bluebells, a Takeover and a Trail..
For those of you who subscribed in 2017 and remained on this mailing list, THANK YOU for courageously weathering the GDPR-storm and a hearty WELCOME if you recently subscribed!
What’s been going on?
This year is just crashing by! Earlier this year, I took a selection of themed pieces to the Bluebell Festival at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens in Sevenoaks and spent a day enjoying some of the walks and marveling at the treasures available in the Craft barn.
Made in Croydon Boxpark Takeover was a HOT day! It was exciting to be in such vibrant surroundings with a great bunch of creators, I particularly enjoyed meeting Josie, one of the Made in Croydon founders and the young people working as Croydon Ambassadors helping with market set-up, covering stallholders for comfort-breaks and generally being amazing throughout the day.
Thank you to those of you who took the time to visit in that very busy weekend (World Cup, Lewisham People’s Day / Wimbledon) .
I have created a limited-edition range of greeting cards! Each of the pictures chosen were taken because I was fascinated with the image I happened to be looking at, I have enhanced each image to emphasise the elements of texture and shape that caught my attention… The cards will be available at live markets only.
My next jewellery-day-out will be with Made in Croydon in early September. After that, I will be on the Catford Arts Trail at Little Nan’s Broadway Theatre Saloon on 29 – 30th Sept and 6th – 7th Oct. I didn’t know much about the origin of Little Nan’s before hearing it would be my location for the two weekends of the trail – do take a moment to read the ‘about us’ section of their website, it warms the heart :).
I often come across interesting articles while browsing online, and thought I would get into the habit of adding three links to each blog post.. the first three are below:
Why your brain tricks you into doing less important tasks by Tim Herrera
Why doing nothing is one of the most important things you can do by Brian O’Connor
The fallacy of obviousness by Teppo Felin
Thank you for reading!
