I have been awol from blogging for a long time..too long! I have been doing a daily blog for a bead site as I have been artist for the month, and I have surprised myself at how much I have enjoyed it, so hopefully I can resurrect my own blog and continue. During my monthly blog I have been telling all those reading (!) about my life before beads. I used to draw. I still do, very occasionally, beads take up so much time that there is not much left for drawing and by the evening I am usually to tired, thanks in part to D for Dog getting me up before 6am every day and the daily humming of family life with teenagers can be a drain on my energy. But, before beads I drew. I have lots of sketches and unfinished drawings but also some finished ones. These ones are ACEO's - Art Card Edition Originals and measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I have some prints of these, which I am getting round to putting in my Etsy shop, which will hopefully be today. I am planning a good sort out today, after I have worn out the dogs down at the river! Each print is professionally printed on stiff card and signed and numbered on the reverse. These are a limited edition and the last remaining ones from my drawing days.
