  • hi hows life ? back again after a loooong time away ! living in glastonbury now at last !
  • Hey, just wanted to say that it's really nice seeing your crafty bits in The Art House with all of the other gorgeousness it has inside. :)
  • Hahahahahaha!! (do you hear the very slight twang of hysteria?). It went in patches, gave me a vibrant orange skull, some streaks n strands uncoloured, extraordinary looking ears, a ginger forehead and lots and lots of giggling! I went to bournemouth beach to see friends today, the could have used my hair to guide ships into harbour lol!!
  • How did the hair go!??
  • (Not sure if 'clonking' is actually a word!!)
  • It appears (according to the pharmacist) very likely that I have Sinusitis :( which is not much fun! I've still got a fever and a clonking headache, but overall I am getting better - s l o w l y !!!
    The holiday was good though, it was great to get away. I'm doing ok, actually, thanks for asking!

    Sounds like you have got your creative flow on!! That's good. A lot of hard work, though, I know, hence you sitting at a computer all day. Tiring too, but it will be worth it!! So what's your plan or is that hush hush?? I joined your FB page a couple of weeks ago, I like all your little facts and updates :)

  • :waves:

    Hello lady! Back from my hols, still got the flu, it's been 13 days now!!

    How're you doing?? x
  • Yeah I reckon Ebays about the best place. They're usually a bit lower than everywhere else lol. x
  • If she moans remind her, you have to speculate to acculate Donna lol. You can also get china paint too that you can bake in the oven, handy if you want to make personalised mugs or things like that ;). But make sure you don't over bake either of them otherwise they do burn, and you lose the colour. x
  • Hiya
    Thanks!
    Vitrea 160 was recommended to me if you look further down my wall! Apparently you bake it in the oven and it sets - I only want some so that I can paint some jamjars and maybe some inside windows, just for my own pleasure and pottering I guess.
    xx
  • I'm running out of time now for Sunrise, but still intend to find out the answer! When I do I'll let you know! ;)
  • Hello! Spotted your lovely website advert in The Bizarre Bazaar... I wondered if I'd be able to pick your brains on something glass-related.. I hope that's ok??

    Basically I want to draw some patterns on some jam-jars to recycle them and use them as candle holders - I'm not looking to do anything flash, or for selling them, just to give us some light when we go out and about in our camper - I want them to look a bit more pretty than old jam jars!! I tried ceramic pens once as they said it was possible to use them on glass - but the colour didn't hold and when you touched them they smudged!

    Any ideas?? Thanks!! Hope you're having a good day :) xx
  • Hiya, thanks for thinking of us :) things are okay I guess. Until we move everything will pretty much stay the same-but we're trying to keep our chins up xxx
  • Thought the same about glastonbury its a great place to go to thats where im doing a course to be a priest of avalon ! good craft fair down there though so am going to do that after the course finishes. As for the baby well practice makes perfect as they say ! Anyhow are yo enjoying the sun ?
  • its just me and lynda moving so that makes it much easyer ! lynda has two girls but they are all grown up now. we are trying again to see if we can have a baby so fingers crossed there ! A lot of people in the villages we have looked at are fairly young and open minded so hopefully reiki massage and tarot wont freek them out to much ! with the craft work there are lots of craft fairs around so probably more scope than we have here . The other place we have been looking at is glastonbury but not sure on that one !
  • Wow! How exciting :-), where can I get a look at some of your work? What do you work with most?
    I'm at home every day working so it's easy for me to be free as long as I can drag myself away lol! Next time you're going let me know.
  • I've been exhibited there before, and I was ridiculously proud! :D

    Absolutely, we pop down there every couple of weeks, my little girl and me, so if you want to meet up, give us a shout x
  • That was really lovely of you :)
    I've known Jani and Bik at the Art House for years, and I've seen it grow from a vague idea into the wonderful, thriving community it is now. I think it's an amazing thing, and it's made me so happy to see how generous people have been since the robbery.

    I'm really tempted by your cuff with the lock, but sadly I haven't the money. In the future, though, I'm sure I'll be buying something lovely from you xx
  • I got to spend mothers day with my mum for the first time in 12 years ! sorry your day was not so good but im sure your little dragons love you very much in their own way ! Its easy for Lynda to move work as she does care work and thats in demand everywhere . Thinking of moving back near to my mum and sister in northamptonshire looking for a little cottage in one of the villages around there . A spirit stick is a wand or staff that you carve a face into representing the spirit of the wood . Sometimes it comes out like a green man sometimes a godess sometimes something really weird depends on what the wood spirit wants to be !
  • hi ! been away for a week but back now ! I am trying to sell my wands and spirit sticks but not much joy so far also do tarot readings which is good thinking of moving out of birmingham at the end of the month as we have had enough of it round here and at the moment we have nothing to loose i think with whats been going on we are better of someplace else now ! are you still a happy hippy in your world ?
  • Yes, I know :( I'm good friends with a couple of the directors there.
    I saw a few rubber necklaces and bracelets with shapes cut in them, which I thought were yours. They were very pretty, I'd have got myself one of the bracelets if I'd had the money x
  • I think I saw some of your work for sale in the Art House today - was I right? x
  • thank you , i find it a way of letting go and very therapeutic :)
  • well at the moment its a case of anything being better than nothing as i dont even get benifits at the moment so things are a bit tight for us ! One day it will all work out im sure and at least everything is waking up after winter now that always makes me smile !
  • well with all that going on at least you dont have the chance to get bored ! Talk about a spring clean ! I am still trying to find a job and work out what the hell im supposed to be doing with my life . No joy on eaither front yet but I will get there !
  • hi ! hows life with you ?
  • Hiya Donna,

    Glad you liked my mosaics. A mate of mine says that he thought the mosaics would enhance the sound of the guitar, but to be honest because I mosaic all of the guitar I doubt anyone could hold it long enough to play anything on it cos they weigh a ton lol. We did mainly pendants and fused glass panels when we used the kiln, we had loads of idea's but when it's someone else's kiln and you don't get to use it very often you have to do what sells, so not much chance to experiment really. If you click on the link and look at the slide show we could have made pretty much anything that was on there really. [url]http://www.myspace.com/orieltygorsaf[/url]

    Do you get many enquires via your facebook page ? I keep meaning to set one up but I haven't actually got a lot of stock at the moment, same reason with a website. I love those suncatchers you've been doing and the fantasy dream catcher. :)
  • I like the fantasy catcher idea making fantasy reality cool ! thats what magic is all about . happy creating ! x
  • Hiya Donna,

    The stuff you're going to do with the kiln sounds amazing, I can't wait till you move so you can start using it lol. Me and my daughter ( sockspinner ) used to use a friends kiln, but haven't bothered lately cos my daughters training hard doing tattoo removal and plus cos it's not our kiln we can't experiment much :(

    I loved your lampshade I hope you carry on putting up your creations. Jane x
