Faith Ringgold

Most times it’s the day after seeing an exhibition you realise just how much you’ve been impacted. Saw a Faith Ringgold exhibition yesterday and all I can think about right now are her painted quilts. Yesterday I was blown away by her honesty, today her execution….

…the way she tells her stories.

She is so fearless. It’s one Exhibition I would like to go visit again.

Amazing review

I got the best review today!!!

You will change the way books are made

….and it has made my day!

Customer bought this book…

Made all the hard graft, passion worth it. I will hold fast to that affirmation and keep creating.

So grateful for the amazing feedback I have received today at the Portobello Spanish Festival.

Trading…..

I don’t want to pander to egos…. but I don’t want to be bitchingly honest either. Haven’t traded in a street market for ages!!!! So don’t really know what to expect….especially being that this new market I’m trading at is piggy backing off Portobello Market. Supposed to be an artisan market….can’t see lots of artists about. Just lots of fabric! Doesn’t seem like….

I take it all back!!!! I’m loving the variety at this new market….just had a browse….I’m inspired. The most beautiful rings by Dicle Erver and beautiful triangular bags by Dea Akwa and soooo much more!!!!

Yep….it defo is an artisan market!!!! Love it!

Handmade paper by 6th form students of Highshore School

Work in progress…..

Concertina journal featuring handmade denim paper. The denim paper has very interesting textures….credit goes to 6th form students of Highshore School, Camberwell (part of the handmade @ Highshore initiative).

I’m really looking forward to trying out some more paper these students are making.

The African Christmas market

Wow….the vibe here is pretty awesome!!! So many creative people under one roof!!! I have never traded at an African Christmas market….I had no idea what to expect. And the feedback!!!!! And networking….getting links to shops.

I just loooovvvvveeee how creative people can be. This is pure eye candy!!!! I simply adore fashion and jewellery.
