Autumn Field - Acrylic on board.
** The comments I made here about my interview at the paper were too depressing and as I'm feeling much better about it today I've deleted them!! The article will be good or not so good. If it's not so good then it's still not the end of the world. If it's good then it's great!

It's all starting to slowly come together for my exhibition. There's still so much to do though!
I have to go to the Northwich Chronicle office this week to be 'interviewed'. I am terrified! My sister persuaded me do it. I know these things have to be done but I'm sure I'm going to make a complete ejit of myself.
P has been amazing over the last couple of weeks but we had a really bad day on Saturday. We spent all morning driving all over Cheshire picking up piles of mountboard, glass and more frames. We were feeling pretty pleased with ourselves for getting up at the crack of dawn and finishing it all only to find that the glass was 1mm too big for the frame, we'd picked up a frame in the wrong size and the mountboard was prone to snagging. Agh!
Why do these things happen in threes?!

I've just finished making this little box to hold my business cards. I love it when I get to use my design skills for my own purposes.

Yippee! My postcards and business cards arrived and they're great! I'm really pleased with them. The turn around time was really fast too. I got them a week before they were supposed to arrive. Very quick and easy.
If anyone is interested in getting their own done I used vistaprint. I'm thinking of getting some Christmas cards printed for myself now.
**Edit** I've just noticed that I can 'refer my friends' so that you would get 25% off your order and I would get some kind of credit too if you use the above link!

I've been sat out on the balcony this morning with my watercolours and a hot chocolate. It's yet another dark, drizzly day but we won't let that beat us!
I've been thinking how much I would like to see the autumn, sorry, fall colours in New England. Can anybody tell me the best places to go?

I've just been for a walk to the postbox and couldn't help but pick up some of the gorgeous autumn leaves and a couple of shiny conkers. The day is shrouded in low dark cloud and seeing these colours really lifted my mood. I especially like the pink of the leaf in the top left corner.

I've been roped into part of the production process for P's brother's wedding stationery. My part involves putting little gold dots of liquid pearls on the place cards, order of services, invites etc. They are everywhere!

Blind contour Friday again... Just recently we have been spending every free minute watching 24. P bought the boxset with all 4 series. So we've been working our way through them. How addictive are they!! I have been enjoying my Jack Bauer Power Hours so decided to have a go at a pic of Kiefer Sutherland. Poor man, he looks like he's been in the torture room too long. Kiefer I'm sorry!
