Here is some evidence I still exist

I'm not gonna be one of those bloggers that blogs every 6 months and apologises for it, who cares! It's liberating :-)
Like my pal Flora instagram has taken over from here a little (a lot). I don't have the attention span for blogs anymore so I don't begrudge you not visiting or commenting either, but I still feel the need to update every now again and it's been a long old time.

What have I been up to?

Watching a lot of Wimbledon in the corner of my screen.
Watching a lot of Glastonbury in the corner of my screen.
Hoping I still rock like Debbie Harry when I'm her age.
Continuing on my Lilla Rogers Bootcamp course.
Preparing for Top Drawer again in September.
Making squillions of new things for the shop.
Re-designing my logo and general brand.
Jzujzing around Nice.
Making new labels for all of my card sets.
Performing my class rep duties.
Working (wrestling) in year 3 art every Monday.
Making loom bands.
Eating a lot of fruit.
Pretending to laugh at the most ridiculous knock knock jokes.
Doing a course at the Fashion & Textiles Museum (not in fashion or textiles).
Looking at beaches on googlemaps.
Stroking the cats.
Taking pictures of the cats (a lot).
Playing cards at The Mill.
Enduring a lot of World Cup talk.
Gossipping after school.
Reliving my love of Matisse.
Wearing dresses at last.
Trying to be in the hammock on my own for more than 5 minutes.

Here is some evidence that I'm still here:















You can join me on facebook and instagram if you like :-)

Open Studios - Roddy & Ginger

I swung by Dulwich Open Studios on Saturday with my lovely friend Justine Ellis. There was only one place I really had my eye on - Virginia's. After swooning all over it on her blog and instagram for the last few years I jumped on the snoopers bandwagon for a tour. Of course I bought a cushion too, one of her new blue & indigo ones, couldn't help myself!

So funny seeing her house in person, a bit like meeting a movie star. We had a cuppa and great chat about business. It's good to talk, especially when you are all on the same kind of page.

Thanks Virginia! x

Pick Me Up Festival at Somerset House



Graphic Arts Festival Pick Me Up starts at Somerset House this Thursday till 5th May. 

There's so much going on; check out the events page for a day of drawing with Daisy de Villeneuve, stop motion animation with Andy Martin and an interactive family workshop with Chris Haughton.

Or there's the Show & Tell when selected graphic artists and illustrators talk about what inspires them and show their sketchbooks.

If you can't get there, there's social media stuff to get involved with too like the #CatSelfie v #DogSelfie competition where everyone will be tweeting their pet selfies! Here's the calendar of events. x

p.s lots of new stuff to share in the next week or so. Been squeezing in the odd hour here and there over the Easter holidays. My am I glad they're back at school tomorrow ;-)
