From my desk this week





My obsession is hot pink this week. I think it's all the hot pink in the stores just now reminding me spring is just around the corner.I seem to possess a lot of hot pink things just sitting on my desk top. I bought myself some hot pink nail vanish a few weeks back it really lifted my mood from the February funk everyone has about this time of year. If your in a funk try some hot pink in your life.

Away from my desk last week

I didn't manage to create a post for last week at my desk post.
I spent the whole week away form my desk last week. Enjoying the half term holiday with Rocket. We packed a lot in. Play dates, a trip to the Tate modern, trip to Brighton to see a friend and the Children's Imagine festival. We went on the vintage fair rides and ate pink fluffy candy floss haven't done that since I was a kid. Here some textures and colour inspiration for you . Loved all the graffiti under the skate park near the South bank centre.

A spotty day at the Tate Modern








 Art work of Yayoi Kusama
It's half term this week. Rocket and I on the spur of the moment hopped on the bus to St Paul's Cathedral and made  a dash along the Millennium bridge in the cold wet windy weather. In fact my little three  and half year son remarked on the bus that it was cold wet and miserable and brought a smile to some faces on the bus. 

When we entered the warmth of the Tate Modern and the Turbine hall we had a great afternoon. I have made a mental bookmark to  go and see the exhibition on the artist Yayoi Kusama. Rocket loved the huge spotty balloons hanging for the ceiling and as we sat in the cafe consuming some really nice chocolate chip ice cream. I gazed at the photos on the wall marking the life of the artist each decade she had lived through.

Here are some photographs , a little taster of the exhibition but you can find out more here. When I do get to go inside I will let you know what I think. I just loved the red and white spotty balloons out side the exhibit it made me feel so happy but there again I love spots I use them a lot in my own work. Spots just make you happy don't you think?

From my desk this week


Lots of staying indoors and keeping warm this week. Lots and lots of drawing going on and hot coffee and tea. In a black and white line drawing mood this week. How are you keeping yourself warm this week?

Snow Fun





It all turning to a slushy mess out there today but Sunday was so much fun as we had some great snow.
We went to to local park round the corner and here are some of the fun snowmen the local kids made.
Rocket loved the snow he went crazy throwing snow balls at us.

From my desk this week



Hello from my desk this week. Here's a snap shot on some felt hearts I made, I plan to make more. There very easy just cut them out and run them under the sewing machine and you have a nice garland of hearts.
I love the colour combination and makes me think of spring although it's minus 4 outside.
Keep warm see you next week.
