and now for something totally different...

Good morning everyone...no card today but I have decided that once a week Im going to show you something completley different so you ave less chance of getting bored visiting me lol...Im going to show you a few lush places I have found inspiration, ideas or just something beautiful...what do you think? good idea?...well we finally got some of the white stuff and its so so pretty...bloody cold mind but beautiful, it defo put the brakes on our plans for this morning though...we had planned to go to a car boot sale but it is really freezing and I dont really do shopping in the snow outside...well not without ski gear on anyway lol...ok now onto my first link for you...

I have been a follower of How about Orange for ages and ages and have spent many hours surfing through the wonderful Jessica Jones blog...there is so many links, tutorials and info jammed packed on her pages...if your having a serious look, grab a coffee some cake or biscuits and settle down for a mega treat
my next site is an artist called George Ayers who also has a set of videos showing how he works on youtube...the link is here...I could watch George Ayers painting forever he is an amazing artist...he started as an Engineer and changed his path to art, hes self taught and had no formal training at all how fantastic is that...it gives me hope that one day I could maybe do something that would be even a fraction at talented as him (see I still have dreams of being an artist lol)...enjoy watching him work and link on his portraiture on his website to be even more astonished


well what do you think...good idea or a shot in the dark?...I wanted to show you something different and if you like it every Saturday I will do something different, show you a new image site or shop, a crafters blog I love or even maybe some hints or tips or some painting advice maybe...let me know what you would like to read about and I will do my best, or even if you just want me to do a card everyday please say so...Im off to toast my toes at the fire and decide if Im brave or daft enough to go out in the snow lol...whatever your up to I hope your keeping warm and enjoy your surfing

I like the idea of checking out new things. Unfortunately George Ayers sold the painting of the white roses in the vase. I was just about to whip out my VISA card. LOL
