It's A Hope And Elvis Day!


I'd been waiting a long time for this day!
Crackers had been made, cakes baked (thanks Mum) and fripperies stitched.

The Nannas had their best frocks on and were waiting patiently...
(Before we go any further I apologise in advance for the copious amounts of photos, I'd put kettle on if I were you!)
Thanks Louise of Hope and Elvis fame for inviting me to play!
And a big 'thank you' to my mate Sam for all your hard work and laughs!
Everyone worked so hard and it was amazing to see how different everyone's work was.

' Flaming Nora' travelled many-a-mile to join us, it was lovely to see you chuck!
The sausage rolls were the first to go!
It is so inspirational to work in the Hope and Elvis studio, surrounded by vintage treasures Nd the work of fabulous craftspeople and artists...

Magie cooked us the most delicious dinner.
Look at Donna's wonderful hare tattoo!
Nellie very nearly came home to me...
Favourite quote of the day by the fab Miss Debs:
"Look! I've done ART!"
And lots of beautiful mixed media artwork was produced on this most joyous of happy creative days...
(If I have missed out anyone's work I do apologise as I was a tad giddy!)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone, I hope you enjoyed the day as I much as I did!

  6. Those cakes and the mention of tea took me to the kitchen and I almost forgot to come back! But what a fun day - food, art, socializing, all wonderful. I especially love the letterbox.

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
