Ahoy There! July 20, 2009

The last few weeks have been kind of manic… work has been sooo busy, the restaurant that I work in has had an extension built & is now one of the largest in Oxford so I’ve been working like crazy, feels as though I have virtually been living there!

Whilst at work the other day I spotted this parked outside…


How cool??!! The Blues Brother’s show, Jake & Elwood, was on at the New Theatre next door. This car got loads of attention & apparently you can hire it out for weddings and so on!

One of my friends is actually getting married this coming weekend & I got to help her do her Table Plan which was quite good fun! The finished article..


It’s fairly basic but she is happy with it. It sparked off so many ideas for me & was so much fun to do, it’s definitely something that I could get into doing!

Another friend of mine is having a baby in a few weeks, she’s having a little girl. A few friends from work & I went over to see her she lives in a village in Oxfordshire in the middle of nowhere in a cottage, it’s gorgeous! Her little boy Bruce thrives out there, he’s so smart & creative. He made ghost cards whilst we were there!

Kate spoiled us with a Jamie Oliver BBQ chicken recipe with new postatoes & salad that had grown in her garden. We took her a multitude of chocolate desserts (Minstrels, chocolate log, profiteroles, Belgian chocolate cheesecake) & yummy cider for ourselves! We had such a lovely night. when we got up in the morning she’d already laid the table & we all got boiled eggs & toast, it was like a mini holiday!  Her place really is beautiful though. Kate is a florist so the house was full of plants & there were fairy lights twinkling everywhere. Her garden backs out on to a field with horses & the view is breathtaking… Oh well, I can’t drive so for now Joaly & I will be staying where we are!

Yesterday I made a start on this..



It’s a pencil drawing on canvas of a woman in a long gown. I’m using curtain fabric as a base for her gown & I’m going to use all different fabrics & paint to create a collaged image. In fact now that I’ve gotten you all caught up, I’m off to do some more work on it now… Will update with more pics as I progress!

Thanks for dropping by… xoxoxox

Interesting stuff. I was thinking myself the other day how one might find collages in the real world using a digital camera (especially since the cost is negligible for shooting). The photo of the cop car sort of set me off in this direction. Shooting objects using only their reflections in other objects is also an idea. (Everyone has tried this, shooting oneself in the reflection of a store window.)
