Inspire Me Thursday – Make a Gift

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

I love handmade gifts – I am giving some of my paintings to family and friends for Christmas this year, and am hoping to get time to do a personalised painting for someone as well.

This week’s topic for Inspire Me Thursday is “Make a Gift”.  As I haven’t had time to do the personalised painting I’m planning (should be done in time for Christmas, just not for Inspire Me Thursday), I came up with this idea instead:

These little gift boxes were handmade, and each one is unique.  Inside is my homemade rocky road chocolate.  I hope they will make nice little Christmas gifts!

Speaking of Christmas gifts, my 2009 calendars make a lovely gift.  Sorry for all the self-promotion – I know, I’m shameless 🙂

Spirit Matters Exhibition

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

This afternoon the opening night of my latest exhibition, Spirit Matters, was held at the Positive Life Store, 482 Old Cleveland Rd, Camp Hill.  The exhibition features artwork of myself, Madonna Huddy, Andi Mutch, Michelle Bowden and Aprille Sophia McHenry.

It was a lovely afternoon and I enjoyed talking to everyone, meeting new people, and seeing some beautiful art.  The exhibition continues Thursday – Saturdays until 23rd December.  I will be manning the gallery next Saturday, so if you’re interested in coming in to say hello, please do!

Don’t forget my 2009 calendars are still available here.
