A work in progress and other stuff!

I have at least started my July calendar page which is a bit better than I did last month! I have gone for a more random look this month ... not sure if I can cope with random, we'll see. Usually my calendar pages are very regimented, bit I think that is to compensate for my very hectic life. I'll probably add a bit more as the month goes on ... not sure ... just going to let it grow.

Don't forget to link up with your calendar this month, the link is here. And don't forget about our flickr group here.

I taught an art calendar workshop at Art from the Heart earlier this week to a great bunch of girls :-)  We managed to get two backgrounds done, an inky one and a painty one, and even finished one page off ready for some journaling. Not bad for a day's work. Here are a few pics from the day - look out for some glimpses of fabby calendar pages:

Sue, Tracey and Gill


Now, talking of Art from the Heart, it's preview day tomorrow where you can see details of all the classes for the next few months. There are taster classes from all your favourite tutors ;-)

Dyan, me, Sandy, Kaz

Not only that, there is going to be a massive sale of goodies so don't forget your pocket money. 

We will also be having a massive clearance sale of workshop items and in the shop. These will include products by Ranger, Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi, 7gypsies, Graphic 45, Bisous and more. For any of you that have been to our sale days, you know it is not to be missed!

So, if you are in the area, pop in for a cup of tea, one of Teresa's famous cupcakes, and a good ol' chinwag. Click here for all the details. See you there!

  2. I'll be there can't wait. I made a start and did my June calendar using the brilliant Fabriano journal that Ruth recommended, not finished my July one yet. Your's looks amazing, I recognize those Golden colours now. Looks like everyone is engrossed in their journals making calendars, what a lot of fun. Michelle x
