Wednesday & More about my Gallery!

Attempting to work at home with the kids. Summer Madness seems to have spread and they are very hyper! I think it's the paddling pools fault, they must be water-powered!

I have just ordered some note cards with my lovely Bumblebee on and these will be available to buy on my website soon

I am currently updating all the photos on my website. This is proving to be quite a challenge!
I also ordered some "this way" Signs and banners for my Summer Gallery Open Evenings. These start on 2nd August and will be running every Tuesday and Thursday 5.30-9pm until the end of August.

A trip down memory lane....
