Upcoming events in time for Mothers Day.....

Just to let you know about some upcoming events. Firstly a fair in Wanstead this Saturday March 10th 11-4pm, which i'll be taking part in. It's next to Wanstead library, so pop along and say hello if you're out and about......

The following Saturday is a Mother's Day special from the e17 designers. I'm not doing this one but hoping to pop along as not only is it in a new venue, the Mill in Walthamstow which i'm told is lovely, but for your £1 entry you get a raffle for a goodie bag. Plus as i'm a mum for the first time this year I might treat myself : )

Romford Art Trail.....

I've just been speaking to one of the lovely girls down at the Brentwood Road Gallery about the Romford Art Trail. The gallery itself has been taken over by some really innovative people who are very passionate about art & design and are transforming the gallery into a social hub. They've even taken on their first major challenge of bringing the art trail back which had been dormant for a few years. So this is a great opportunity for all local artists, designers and craft makers to get together and show Romfordians your amazing work. All you need to do is find a local business, such as a shop or restaurant, in Romford for the 14th - 27th July to display your work.

This is such a great opportunity to get art back into the community and to meet other local artists in the area. For more info about the art trail
click here The gallery are working at full steam to introduce a whole variety of great exhibitions for the year along with some great events so make sure to follow to keep art alive and kicking in the area.

This is their next upcoming exhibition.......

This is one of the great events they hold.....

Talking of art, i've been trying to draw a bit more lately, here's a picture I drew of me holding Ellie's hand, for a new baby card and for her keepsake book. Next on the list are circus animals for her bedroom which she'll be moving into as soon as we've painted so i'd best get started.
My mum also managed to remember to take her camera and take pictures of the great weekend workshop she just did, but we've just discovered they've been deleted from the camera. So if anyone has some pictures from the weekend can you send them through to us so that we can share them with you all.
