I finally got around to taking a photograph
of the inside of my fridge
as part of
Art House Co-op's
The Things Found Series
It's got to be sent off on Friday
at the latest.
This is the beginning of a new photography
series that encourages participants to capture
an image of a common space. The first one
challenges artists to shed a little light on one
of the most personal spaces of all...
I've been waiting for Grant to change the
interior light, which hasn't worked for years.
Unfortunately this hasn't been an easy job
and has involved lots of swearing,
broken glass, and a fuse being blown
(Grant's as well!).
Are DIY jobs ever easy?!
Long story short,
I still don't have an interior light
in my fridge.
I think I should explain that those Activia yogurts
were on special offer, hence the quantity in
my fridge. I am not addicted (ok, I am).
The cream sponge is a special treat
for Top Son who passed his driving theory test
today. I don't know where the bottle of
wine came from, it isn't mine.
And this photo is the one that won't be
getting sent off - with Cally-Cat
investigating the gammon joint!
(Don't worry, it's sealed and safe).
My latest project over at
is up on their blog.
I made a little postcard booklet on a
chain. I took my inspiration from some
fun cartoon pages sent to me in their
foreign text pack.
I had fun spraying backgrounds,
using sequin waste as a stencil and mask
and adding highlighted gesso circles.
Goodness knows what the characters are saying!
I added scraps of Decopatch to the background.
All the details are over on the blog,
Re the query about customs from
Virginia and Susie - it doesn't look good really
although I have never been charged import
duty/tax there is a risk that you could be.
Hope is in Italy on her Latin school trip.
She went yesterday morning and will
get back on Saturday night.
It's the longest time she'll have been away
from home without us and
I'm being very brave ;o)
Safe journey, baby-girl.
