Guest Designer Sophie
Funny I think I can feel a buzz of excitement in the air, can't think why!
Todays drawing has been created by my very talented baby girl Sophie, the baby of the family,
well by a whole 1 hour 20 mins1.
Sophie got up on Mothering Sunday feeling a little better than she had on Saturday when she spent virtually the whole day sleeping due to a horrible bug she had, she hadn't eaten anything properly since Thursday lunchtime bless her. Any way she got up feeling better and then felt bad that she hadn't made me a card, so she photographed my hands, I had no idea why, and then disappeared for a couple of hours, she then came and presented me with this work of art, I was absolutely blown away,
she is so very talented, the details in the shading on the rose are mid blowing, I had goosebumps and a lump in my throat. She is going to show it as part of her GCSE Art work so I will have to wait to have it mounted and framed, the piece of paper she used also has a crease down the centre which is frustrating, I have bought her a large Portfolio for her work so I don't know why we are folding
pieces like this!
Again the shading is very accurate.
So I guess you can say I was a very proud Mummy this Mothering Sunday.
Money can't buy things like this or Lucy's card yesterday.
I only wish I had an ounce of her artistic Skills,
we aren't sure where she gets it from as neither Paul or myself can draw at all.
My dad could though and my brother and Paul's brother had a degree in Art, so maybe its in the Genes.
Well I am not sure how many of you got to hear of the exciting news yesterday, Sam I don't think you did or Steph, Barbie, Theresa or Tandy, or Brenda H (littlelamb), CraftySue to name but a few.
We have kind of decided on a Time and Venue for our Weekend Retreat!
Hazel found an amazing venue, that have offered us a great deal too.
The Hotel is Hillscourt Conference Centre, Birmingham.
I am so excited I can't sit still, the thought of getting to meet you amazing ladies that have made a huge difference to my life, well need I say more, I hope as many of you can come as possible.
Do we want to include crafting? I am sure that between those of us not flying we could bring enough crafting stuff for the 20 odd of us that would be going, I have 2 GC and a Cuttlebug for a start.
I am not to sure if we will be too busy talking.
I believe it will 228 sleeps, but I may be a little out, who's counting anyway!
All Suggestions Welcome,
Love and Hugs
