For fun I painted some little spiders on pebbles to sell at the last Craft Fair I did with the Chorley Contemporary Crafters in October and I sold them all within a couple of hours, so I've painted some more for our next fair on Sunday Dec 4th at The Coach House, Astley Park, Chorley.

Chorley Contemporary Crafters.

I've been commissioned to design some really rude cards like the one above, all the Captions are male:

Chorley Contemporary Crafters

Went to my first meeting with Chorley Contemporary Crafters on Saturday. I had a lovely day chatting with all the lovely talented girls/ladies and they made me feel really welcome. I've always wanted to get into having a craft stall at an Art Fair but could never really find the time but the kids are getting older now and it's time for some ME time. I better get my arty crafty head on! Check out their blog here.

Happy Valentines Day

This is a painting I did a while ago. I scanned it into photoshop and cleaned it up but I still think it's a little dull in colour.
