Work in Progress

A much quieter week, although a seven day week last week meant I have been in need of some down time. I have also been itching to pick up the origami bombing project planned for this spring and if you have been into Beeston this week you will have seen that I have succeeded.   Rudyard’s Tea House now had butterflies accompanying their cranes, fluttering all around their windows and walls. A few of the Bee Creative craft group have got the origami bug and came along to help me on Tuesday, look out for more kaleidoscopes of butterflies appearing in other places and in your news feed if you follow the page. I am aiming for at least half a dozen venues to be displaying the ‘Beeston Butterfly’ this summer.   Perhaps inspired by another large scale art project, the Beeston Street Art Festival, I was keen to start the ball rolling this week and had lots of...

Community Creativity!

This week saw a coming together of many things! This week was my final full week of exam revision sessions and preparations for this year’s Remarkable Recycling Gala.   The Bee Creative stall looked fabulous, with so many brightly coloured and beautiful things that were made by members of the group and it received many compliments from those who visited. The crafters involved keep the money that they make, making a small donation to Bee Creative to help fund further projects. I am so proud of what they are achieving and their products looked really professional, helped along by Linda’s display skills.   Mr Bee was there with rather a light stall, since he has only just managed to set his workshop up properly this week, but as usual he had lots of friendly faces popping by to say ‘hello.’ This is why this event will remain one of my favourites. It...

Creative Passions

It’s a brief blog tonight as I suddenly have so much to do, but it’s all exciting stuff! This weekend has been mostly taken up with visiting the ABC Art Trail, which as you can see for yourself was basically cycling from one venue to another discovering how amazingly talented some people are.   This is just a small sample of some of the work on show, I am not even sure that I managed to capture it all, but I found the whole experience superbly enjoyable. Being something of a creative soul, I can really appreciate the work that goes into producing the pieces on show and have a genuine admiration for anyone that runs any kind of creative business.    As you may know, I recently wound up my creative business, Despite my definitive attitude at the time, this was not a decision I took lightly. I had built up a loyal following and some amazing supporters over the...

Summer’s Coming…

Well I am still painting things blue and working on creating a colourful and relaxing garden outside space, but also this week we have been unpacking the last room full of boxes. This will be our shared office/creative space and should be all set up by the end of this week.   By that time we will have been in our new home a whole month! How quickly time passes when you are working and creating a new home. It’s time to start to relax and enjoy it now, you know dinner al fresco and food with friends, but we also need some time away. There is still lots to do, Mr Bee needs to finish rebuilding his workshop and start work on a new commission, but it’s important to remember to take some time out too.      So we took advantage of the free ‘street food’  festival that was happening in our town yesterday afternoon and had a great time catching...
