Wow what have I been up to????? I have alot to tell you about so best I get started! I think since Facebook came into play it was so much easier to just go on there see what others are doing and update there but I have missed my blog. So here we go I have been busy working, and moving things into my Studio ... what I hear you say a studio .. yes its true. I will post pictures of it in the next few days. I work with this guy Roeland and he is a photographer but his space is not a large as mine and he wants to collaborate with me , he takes the pictures and I will do some of the design / accessories and clothings.So our first photo shoot was with a young girl from Hungary with very pale skin and she wanted to be an ice princess for the shoot. Here is one of the photos , what do you think ?

So my muse has not been what it was like some time back ... I have things in the work such as a workshop with Dijanne Cevaal that I started and have put to the side for a bit NAUGHTY GIRL. I have been to Sutton Hoo. Also working on some t shirts and leggings with my new toy my airbrush ....

Hi there .. sorry about neglecting the blog .. but I think my muse is on its way back. I have had a bit of a tough few weeks! One of my sisters has passed away, a very sad time indeed. A week or so later, my auntie passed away as well. It makes it hard living so far away in times like this.... We must celebrate their lives and keep all the memories of them close to our hearts. This will help us with the grieving process. I have been finding some inspiration on pinterest... wow you can really get stuck on there. Keep your eyes on my blog and you should be seeing some interesting work!! Here is a picture of my sister and her son David and daughter in law Laurie.

Today it rained and rained and I was at Ickworth house taking the digital photography course Part 1 which did not make it ideal conditions for the course.

Going Digital As some of you may remember I bought myself a wonderful camera Canon 550D. I am finally going to go on a course to learn to use it properly, without using auto mode, so I am really looking forward to this. EXPLORE YOUR DSLR CAMERA PART 1 This is going to take place at Ickworth House. Its a National Trust building. Ickworth's huge central Rotunda, flanked by two massive wings, dominates this eccentric house built by the equally eccentric 4th Earl of Bristol, who dreamed of creating an Italianate palace within an English landscape. So be on the lookout for quite a few photos tomorrow and in the coming days as I am practicing my new skills.
