What I do best....

It's been quite a while since I've shown you any work so here is one for now. A lot to do this week, early morning painting, late night painting, meetings, new ideas, colour proofing and less time reading blogs is the order. Bye for now xx

What weather!

More lovely pattern and colour from Alhambra. Our necks hurt from gazing up at that ceiling for a long time. Crazily reminded me of egg boxes!

Some areas in the UK are really seriously flooding, Poor Gloucestershire! It hasn't stopped raining here for days. I have been enjoying watching the everchanging skies. I love the array of colours, so many shades of grey. Bu this weather really is making people miserable. We have been really looking forward to today. As a surprise wedding gift to Sean I booked us a hot air balloon flight that actually goes over our house. It was meant to be this evening but alas when we phoned up at lunchtime, surprise surprise it was cancelled! So we have to rebook but with the weather as it is I think we will be safer waiting several weeks. Very disappointed.

I read today about The Couple by Sean Henry, I would like to go up and see that when it is completed later this month. I love it when people go crazy on scale.I reckon it will be amazing!

I found a lovely new blog Freds blog.......a man! How refreshing! A man who appreciates Cath Kidston and colour and makes fairy cakes and everything, who'd have thought it eh! And I bet he can put up shelves too!!!
Until tomorrow xx

Alhambra delights

Every inch of this place is magnificent, the detail is unbelievable. Everyone must go here at least once in their lifetime, it will blow you away!

I saw these and thought of Abigails drawing and carvings........more to follow! xx

Here is a sneaky peak of our marquee, I failed with the 200 metres of bunting after 2 machines died on me so about 70 metres ws done in all and it looked so lovely. I will probably be selling some of it on ebay soon, or keep it for the next big party/christening!?! I hope to have some better ones soon, these are just a couple we have seen so far. That last one pretty much sums up my day!

I have hundreds of photos of Alhambra palace in Granada I will post tomorrow, I nearly cried at the beauty of that place.
MUST......WORK........NOW! xxx

Got the honeymoon blues!

Thats it, I am (we are) back! As Mr and Mrs McArdell!!!! Ten days in a villa in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada was so wonderful I have the post honeymoon blues though.
The past few weeks have been a whirlwind and quite quite magical. I have so so much to share I don't know where to start. It has been so long. As I have had just a few photos back so far from the wedding you may have to wait a few days. I am opening a flickr account so there may be a few in there soon.
I hope everyone is well. Gosh so much to catch up on! I am still wading through emails.
Lots and lots of changes and exciting things going on, lets chat tomorrow! xxxxxx
