    keep your eyes peeled as of the first week of june ofr a magazine called Inspired Times, I was hired to do the front cover for the next 4 issues (a years worth)!! which is exciting. Its interesting turning a picture which is partof me in some ways and making it a product in many ways...having to use specific colours and things, the kinds of things i probably wouldnt have chosen myself, but just trusting in the job and the lady who hired me. a nice journey.

    So the first one goes on sale in a week i think, its national but not masively distributed...though i think borders stocks it. The magazine is all about positive and inspiring eco and spirituality based topics and is pretty damn good. you can sign up for them by mail order on the website too if you are interested in it :) http://www.inspiredtimesmagazine.com/


    so yea...let me know if you see it. the first issue will have a mini article about me in it too hehe.

    Come come come!! yea sure. i mean the price is high, i know. it does go straight to the poets to pay for their travel so pay what you can but if concs is what you can pay, hey its better than you not comming ;) so im happy.

    Beware: Poets have been known to stage dive.

    originally it was a mans cashmere and wool jumper xxl - then it got shrunk and it fits me so about a 16?

    i have another one that i'm doing while i wait for joss's wool to come in which is a really skinny one now but narrow on the shoulders and pointy! i have to thank fleassy hugely for this idea as having seen hers, i asked if i sent the a cashmere one if she'd be able to do one for me but i think she was a bit worried about wrecking it....so i just did it myself as an experiment. i don't think you can really wreck anything - you can always use the disasters for something else. and the arms i will probably turn into slippers....and turn another old jumper into something a bit funkier and patchworky with the odd bits, blanketing them together...




    yay im so glad you did it :) it looks stunning :)

    Hehe Vampira it has confused me too as i did get a coupld of gifted ones but i dont remember anyone openly telling me one was for you :) so i'm just as confused as you are :)

    Awe, Amy! Say "hello" to her please! Have not spoke to her in ages.


    Yes it is! Pretty things! Floral things. Um... I love all the things you make/draw.


    Oh, Did you go to Elliott's wedding? Out of curiosity? How did it go? I could not make it.
    xx


    I did want to go but unfortunately there was a dispute between El and i a few weeks before and i kind of decided it was time to let our friendship distance for a wee while. :) Though i really hope it went beautifully. I've text Alicia a few times since then and before but never got a reply... not sure i have the right number now i think of it.


    Hmmm ok floral and pretty things... I could do a little painting for you in return for it?

    hey ness. amy and i are drooling over your clothes hehe


    I love the lotus top, is it still going? what kids of things are you looking for in return?

    OOOhhh hydra, which tree went to you in the end? i'm intruiged :)


    dj, these foetuses are all based around 7 to 8 weeks :) When you order one put a little note in that you like them and i'll try and got a foetusy one over to you (its so i can match it to the right address :) )

    Hehe glad they arrived safe. Pete thats so funny. i must have forgotten to cross your name off the list last time i posted out and so now you got two :) well SURPISE :D haha

    Posted then next batch out today :) Hydra, i did two tree based images, put them in envelopes unmarked, shuffled them about and one was sent to you and one to another address i got on the same day :) so i haven't a clue which one you will get but i hope you like it.

    Wow what a lovely responce from you all thanks :)
    Yes UMA i thought i may have sent it to you, you didnt request a foetus one but somehow i thought you might like it anyway, being a recent mama.


    However Twister if i do anymore or if you want any more let me know. Im going to carry on the £1 thing till i get completely sick of it so probably a month or so more.

    And why not?? I lurve surprises - gutted I didn't think of doing this myself. Payment sent - I will love whatever I get - but I particularly love TREES. XXX


    Hey Hydra, i had two payments on the same day, whats your name and i'll keep trees in mind when im packaging up and posting out.
    :p

    Twister, i posted a load out yesterday, im pretty sure i didnt send it but i will check and i will send you a photo of it too :)


    Sensi, the organica is an original which is in one of my journals but i could probably get a print of it done, i think i have a high quality digital version of it... or if you want an original i could try and do one. I'd probably ask £20 for an original custom piece though.
    Im afraid cant do it as one of the £1 pieces as i had to promise myself that i wouldnt start selling all my art for £1 haha just the little ones done in the name of the project. Otherwise i'd never make any money from it getting less than £1 an hour for working haha, some people have called me crazy but im really enjoying it.
