...me and Joe decided it was time that a sparkly title was made for this tired looking blog. it needed a polish but the Mr Muscle was no where to be found so out came the paints and brushes. it took me a while as i painted the first one onto dictionary paper that had the words draw, drawing and drawing room on it that i thought would be nice but then i spoilt it by spelling 'imagination' wrong. imaginatintintin. what was i thinking? anyway so i painted another set of fish but this time used the title page of the dictionary and did the lettering separate in case of spelling mistakes. i don't quite like the white bit yet so it might all change again tomorrow.

...he knew the graffiti event was really on Sunday but never thought to correct me when i asked him about it earlier. so off i went like a right royal numpty with my stickers to find out that it is actually tomorrow. i got the dates mixed up! we never went on the magic eye either though we did fall into a bar and a Chinese restaurant. aye so this is joe. i found him on deansgate in Manchester on the first day back after the holiday. he was sat in a shop window on a shelf and he was defo the robot for me. he is now working in my study and makes me brews and that. he would like to be a photographer one day but finds all the buttons and functions confusing.

...here it is at long last. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5035468 It took me a while to get it going as i first signed up to open a shop in January! I am in the process of listing items at the moment but I couldn't’t bear to keep it under wraps any longer as this tip tapping of details is taking forever. I am planning to make my own banner in a couple of days time as for the moment i don't have the energy to as I have exhausted myself out trying to make a big batch of cards. As per the early post, the textile bits are all ready to be embellished with bits and bobs before being made into a card. my body requires a massage.
Please have a look and let me know what you all think. Ta muchli with a big hug, a brew and some chocolate hobnobs.

...the scanner is still not connected and the laptop is living in the living room at the moment. i am in the process of creating an online shop within the etsy community. this week i have been on various photo shoots and i have also started a new batch of cards. there are some fancy robotingtons in the making, some new grey ones and a couple of fancy fabric ones. whether they look good or not sewn up and finished is another story as they are yet to be introduced to the sewing machine. all is taking a very long time while i wait for paypal to verify my account and will post up all the details when everything is open for business.

...people always seem to be in a hurry to get everywhere no matter where i am! i apologise for disappearing and not posting for a while but i flew off to Turkey for two weeks with the mister's parents. above is one of my favourite photographs from the holiday. i took this one while i was on the bus-i cant spell the correct name for them-dolmus? basically a little mini bus that packs on as many people as it can like sardines in a tin! i love travelling around on them. anyhoo so aye i went to find nemo in turkey but he wasn't to be found but i did find Mr Sunshine and we had a great time talking to each other while sat on the beach. i also did a lot of length swimming in the pool and i miss it so much so come Monday morning i am off to the aquatic centre to keep up the exercise. i read three harry potters and three other books on holiday, a grand total of six and for a while i think i thought i could do magic!
Illustration wise i didn't do a lot while on holiday as it was too damn hot but since i have been back i have been working away like clock house mouse but the scanner is not hooked up to the laptop as the mister is installing a new network system. I haven't done a lot but i am very pleased with what i have done.
