Dear friends and fellow bead freaks. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas Day. I am feeling a tad delicate today as I over indulged in the Christmas spirit,so to speak!!
Oodles of exciting things have been happening since I last put pen to paper(or paw to keyboard). I have moved my studio but in spite of my valiant attempts at being organised,it looks as much of a tip as before. However lots of exciting new designs in the pipeline for 2012 and I successfully completed my first ever craft show with lots more planned for 2012 as well. My work is also now available at the Cynon Valley Museum. I am very excited about this but as you all know it doesn't take a lot to excite me. Especially where beads etc are concerned. I am working on some altered art tile designs and a fab set for my craft shows. A bit of a "WoW" factor as based on an all American theme,rustic but sophisticated!! Something new for the UK! I have also asked my partner-in-crime Debra to make some new beads and I am hoping we can come up with some fab color schemes for the New Year. Watch this space as have a renewed sense of purpose! I have also had new Moos printed and looking forward to my new branding and image. A new range of boxes and tags are under design as well.
2011 was a year of extreme change for me. Sometimes frightening but I think it was all for the best. I am a very different lady from the one I was last Christmas. I have also met a lovely new guy and I hope we can bring out the very best in each other. He is simply adorable and he even paints a little which is fantastic.
I will stop gushing now and wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year. Love and light to al,Anne xxxx
