The Glazed Look, Chelmsford

Lots of fun at The Glazed Look on Friday night, a pottery painting studio in Chelmsford, Essex. You can paint all sorts of pottery blanks with the paints provided - jugs, mugs, bowls, plates, ornaments, trinket boxes, money banks, decorations, the list is endless. I decided on a hanging heart decoration, penguin Christmas decoration and small jug which I adorned with Emma Bridgewater inspired spots.

You can order in pizza, take your own snacks/drinks or order from the pottery cafe. I was there to celebrate a friends birthday, and as we had already eaten at the fantastic Zen Noodle Bar earlier in the evening, we just settled for a coffee each and concentrating on our painting. Once you have painted your items and paid, they are fired in the kiln and collected a week later. So I am now hoping that my three items survive the oh so hot kiln. Fingers crossed.

♥ Valentine Pamper Evening ♥

The Valentine Pamper Evening at Hummingbird Pilates & Holistic Centre on Friday night was a great success.

I sold 'True Love' painting, several headbands, corsages and button brooches. The evening was lovely with beauty treatments, pink bubbly, cupcakes, canapes, strawberries and chocolates for all to enjoy. I even won a bottle of red wine in the raffle. 50% of all proceeds are being donated to Breast Reconstruction Awareness. Many thanks to Kellie for organising such a fantastic event and to all those who purchased from me. ♥

Quick catch up

I've been somewhat quiet in the world of bloggin' this week.

 I've been very busy with a landscape painting commission and preparing for the Valentine Pamper Evening next Friday night. The Valentine Pamper Evening is being held at Hummingbird Pilates & Holistic Centre, Reeds Farm Estate, Writtle, Essex on Friday 11th February 2011 from 7.00pm-10.00pm. I will be selling some of my handmade craft items, usually available through my Etsy shop plus a selection of my ethereal and coastal landscape paintings. It looks set to be a great night in aid of a very worthy cause, Breast Reconstruction Awareness. Please do come along.
