Well, I have lately been feeling a bit flat when I think of doing some arty creations~I easily seem to fall into pressuring myself into making 'work' and it's then when all creative flow stops and I feel like a shrivelled prune with no juice left!! Or I just get plain too busy! But I recently came across Donna Downey's blog, (thanks Emily for pointing me in her direction!!) and stopped by her 'Inspiration Wednesdays' entries. Well, even though today is thursday, I read just one entry and felt all inspired again!! So, not putting pressure on myself, I picked up my art journal which I have recently started, and the creative juices started to flow again! Yay! I am amazed at how much I am learning about myself at the moment in relation to producing art and just being creative! What a journey! And I feel it's really only just started even though I have been being creative all my life!

What a lot to ponder on! Hmmmm. xxx

Too good to eat!

I spent some of my birthday money last year on a subscription to the Cloth Paper Scissors magazine (which is amazing incidentally!!) and was inspired by an article about cupcakes made from clay and ramekin tins in one of the issues. (I forget who the artist is, off the top of my head~Pamela something seems to come to mind? Sorry Pamela!) Anyway! So this little bee decides to come buzzing in my bonnet as I love cupcakes and wanted to try making some myself. (the non eating type, you understand!) After trying unsuccesfully to base the cakes on the ones in the article, I came up with the idea of trying to make ones from plaster.
Here are the results so far, and I was very pleased with them if I do say so myself! :o)
So now to do a whole platefull!!!
