Old news! New news!

I was going through my old photos: its amazing how many photos or memories get lost or are forgotten in our digital camera wildernesss.
Anyways, being the season of Easter, I thought I'll resurrect a few.

Some of my recycled accessories

 A book recycled into a bag

A recycled shoebox art. I made this one as a sample for the kids holiday workshop, I was going to teach. The
kids had to create a garden or underwater diorama.

This is the beautiful view of the river in my town. I love to sit and chat with the people fishing along the river front.
On a very clear day (a rare thing in the UK LOL), you can see as far as the eye can see. So am told, I couldnt tell cos I only had one contact lense in. Don't ask.

Below, one of my 4 pieces for the 20x20 exhibition in Allington Library, Maidstone. This piece was sold later at another exhibition.

Some of my doily bowls.

Eggcellent Easter Crafts

Spring has finally sprung! The kids break up on friday for their easter holidays. So I have been thinking about what to make.
I have been saving some egg cartons which I was hoping to turn into litte easter baskets.
As always, my search on the web was extremely inspirational.
