Bend and Stretch...

...and reach for your new art supplies.

Spray paint - my latest love.

I've just signed up for an online stencilry class over at
Dispatch from LA. You can get all the details here. I can't wait to stretch myself in new creative directions and see what comes of it.

Speaking of stretching, I've signed up for a stall at the September and December
Made n' Thornbury market. I'll be focusing specifically on collage and mixed-media work for these markets. I'm simply buzzing about taking this next step, and full of ideas for works I want to make (including - fingers crossed - some collaborative works with CurlyPops).

If you can't wait till September you can still pick up some of my very first group of collages in the shop.


  1. Go You!
    What date is the Dec. one?
    Trying to organize myself, and really want to do it.

  2. Now I am singing that song from Romper Room '...reach for the stars, there goes Jupiter here comes Mars. Bend and stretch...'

  3. Woot! I'd better get my butt into shape then.

  4. Anything crafty planned along the 'friends who play together, hang together line?' (still chuckling over that one).

  5. sounds great learning new stuff, i am all for that and collaboration is something u r yearnig for

  6. Good for you!

    I know have the bend and snap from Legally Blonde in my head.... just so you know! ;-)

  7. Good luck Tinnie! I might have to come and have a look, no baby this time, and possibly some money in my wallet if there's any left after grocieries :)

  8. Oh, yay! I can't wait to have you at the market :-) Well done on taking that next step! And thanks for the class link- I'm off to check it out now.

  9. yey, I'm so excited for you, little steps lead to great journey's ( :

  10. Sounds lke two great ideas - the spraypaint/stencil class and a collaboration with Cam.

    I'm giggling just thinking up the trouble you two could create ;-)

  11. Good to hear some of the sadness has gone as you've been learning to fly....

  12. Wow, many cool things on the horizon by the sounds of it. Can't wait to see/hear more about your curly pops collaboration!!

  13. Woohoo ... the stencilry class sounds fab. Of course when I saw the photo, I did wonder ... just fleetingly ... if you were going out tagging trains.

    I can't wait to see what you do. Great news about the markets too. Go you crafty gals!

  14. ahhh Romper Room - i was a huge fan of that!! remember Ms helena?

    spray paint - what a fun medium!
    the course sounds great....
    hey i sent off your little parcel today - hope you like everything!
