Anyway, I think this is a great idea as a way of promoting artists and artisans and I am very much looking forward to the diary being published (various friends and family members may find copies in their Christmas stockings this year!)
After finishing the portrait of Audrey Hepburn yesterday evening I was planning to start a new design today - I need to create a banner for my blog and have an idea in mind of how I would like it to look. Today being 12 July and a public holiday in Northern Ireland I had every intention of getting started but the weatherman got it beautifully wrong with the forecast today and instead of the heavy rain showers we were expecting it turned out to be a gorgeous sunny day. Now, as anyone from Ireland (North or South) will tell you, sunny days are few and far between on this Emerald Isle and so what was I meant to do other than to take full advantage of it!
The pups needed to be walked and we discovered a great big park (the entrance to which I drive past every day without ever having known it existed) so we had a good run around with them there and on returning to the house I have to admit that the lure of the sunshine, a deckchair and a good book in the back garden won out over sitting inside and working on my banner.
I am off work until Friday though so I will get back on track tomorrow and hopefully will have said banner in place on my blog before Friday (as long as the weatherman is wrong again tomorrow that is!)
