Mais oui, today I will (hopefully):

-Make some hearts and paisley pendants

– Make peanut butter cookies

– Price and prepare my new things for the craft fayre tomorrow:


– Charge my camera’s battery and upload yesterday’s pictures

– Do a blog entry for yesterday (It’s called, *atchoo!* Day out with Alyn & Morag)

– Shower, dress in warm clothes and go to Light Night in Nottingham! (Click on Light Night to see the story! Don’t worry, my links open in a new window.)

– Then to come home and make/pack food and drinks for tomorrow!

-Then? Collapse in a heap on my bed… until bright and early tomorrow morning!

On Sunday (Valentines Day) expect a recipe for Peanut butter cookies and other foodie tips AND pics of what sparkly things I made today! OOH! AND of LIGHT NIGHT!

Pics of  Last years Light Night, accidentally stumbled upon by myself, John Berridge and Piotr Skowroński… yes, I copied and pasted his surname…

THIS is a water feature!


Pyramids!

The Council House

Old Hard Rock Cafe/ New Vienna


Nottingham Wheel Returns (>.<) and they put out a stage and have musical performances…


Illuminated trees at Notts Castle


Okay, so my pictures of the night may not show it to be a fantastic, amazing beautiful night but it IS! And it seems that most people stumbled upon it last year, possibly this year too, but it should be advertised better and people should seek it out- various places in Nottingham are doing great things and putting on theatrical processions and doing fantastical story telling, some will be ghostly and some will be historical, but definitely all events to see (if only you could be in two or three places at once!) and absolutely something I’m VERY excited about!

See you later alligator.

+ Something with which to fill my day when I get home from BEST.

Bon, oui?

At Arts On Prescription today we painted white, paper sandwich bags with silk paint- drawing on extra details with metallic pen- this was to make D.I.Y lanterns. They’re simple, I suppose, but they’re SO effective and pretty and I would have never have thought about doing such a thing.


Mine’s the yellow one!

I began painting my indian thang on the other side.
