A Post!

Craft fairs, work, birthdays, conferences, festivals and visiting friends have kept me from the blog.....oh and as usual a touch of laziness thrown in.

A few of us shared a stall at the Maker's Market at the Steeple Arts Centre last weekend so after some last minute manufacturing we were ready. It was a good day. We had a stall in the outside courtyard so it was cold, but at least it was dry.

I've been out everyday this week and eaten a lot - oops! And I've been out to a number of work related events - as part of the NEoN (North East of North) Digital Arts Festival that was on this week. It included networking events, the opening of an exhibition by Japanese artist Akinori Oishi and the Party in the Car Park - yes a party on the 6th and 7th floor of a multi-storey car park, which included local bands, breakdancers, impromptu drumming for the masses, bicycle powered digital art production, burgers and drinks and a mobile digital arts venue i.e. a white transit van. It was fun if a little chilly.

And since it was such a lovely clear night and the reflections of light on the river were so pretty here's the ubiquitous view from the flat picture that seems to be cropping up in every post.

hey, you cannot multiply (or can you? ;) and be everywhere at the same time, so if the blog suffers, the blog suffers.

it reads like you've been having fun and doing tones of interesting stuff. that is fab, isn't it? this blog guiltiness is just silly (not yours, everyone's, I mean.) there's a time and a place for everything.

you just get yourself out and about, frolic around and have fun. you're doing it very well, methinks :)

How did the sale go?! If you were in a touristy part of London, I bet your pins would disappear in 15 minutes!!! I hope it was fun. Okay, right now I'm very jealous because I haven't gone anywhere lately and you're having so much fun!

I am sure those beautiful soldiers were sold in an instant. They are perfect for Christmas! And what a great idea to share a stall, less pressure and more fun!

Oh and your new blog header photo is making me jealous!!! You are just like Willy fog, traveling around the world.
