A Birthday Present

In March and April, I had the creative urge again.

It also conincided with one of my friends birthdays, so I decided to take the plunge and see if I could paint something for them.  I must say I wasn’t entirely comfortable with this, as I didn’t know if it would be any good, or whether they would indeed want something I’d made them… with that in mind I also picked the up a couple of small traditional gifts in case!

Trying Something New


In December 2016, the friend who inspired me to create this blog and I went to the Jackfield Tile Museum for an afternoon.

Jackfield gives you the chance for a small fee to design and paint your own tile by hand, which they will then bake and either post it to you or pick it up a few days later.

It was a lovely day out and I found it very relaxing to do.  We spent the morning drawing our designs before my friend and I took the short trip to Jackfield (only getting a little lost, which was for us nothing short of a miracle!), and spent the rest of the morning and the afternoon creating our tiles.

I chose a simplified design of the Empire State Building, whereas my friend was for more ambitious and planned to create a bonsai tree.  Whilts at the museum we met one of her friends who was a regular tile creator himself, who had become quite the expert.  An invaluable resource for us first-timers!

Introduction

Hi folks.

This is my first ever post, and I don’t quite know what to say.  I’m going to be updating the appearance and content of the site fairly frequently over the next few weeks as I get to grips with this blogging malarkey, and get some content.  I’m going to be backdating a few entries, but hopefully it won’t be too confusing!

Brief introduction, this blog is a place for me to show models / creative stuff I do, and to act as motivation to keep me doing it.

I work on web applications as a career, but I’m going to resist the urge to do too much with the blog in that sense; this is for my hobby interests not my job.
