Being the organiser

I seem to have taken it upon myself to organise a joint exhibition in 2010 with some people I've never met. That's why I haven't written for a while, that and the fact that it's Christmas, the season of procrastination and staying snuggled up on the couch for days watching rubbish films. So I'm not usually an organiser of things, but I appear to have fallen into it fairly easily, although I can't say I'm too keen on the pressure. I've finally sent in my application for the 2010 Newbury Open Studios, the deadline of which is today, so to brighten up this post, here's my image for this year's event. Enjoy, and look out for it!

A totally tremendous Christmas deal!

Yes, Christmas is creeping up on us and some of you may have already had a card from me and the kOodles. If you'd like to purchase some of your own, they are available in my Etsy shop and I'm now offering a whopping 30% off all my Christmas cards until they're all gone. Mention oodlesofkoodlesblog in the "note to seller" box when you place an order and then wait for me to send you an amended Paypal invoice with the reduced amount. Stock up early for next year, once they're gone, they're gone!

Lots of lovely pictures from the Art Fair!

I was exhibiting at the New Greenham Art Fair in Newbury yesterday where I was on the ball enough to take some slightly more inviting photographs of my work on display, so here they are for the world to see (failing that, at least someone!).

I met some more rather lovely artists there, including Lisa Jean, who goes by the pseudonym of Iris Hill. Her work is just beautiful, we did a little swap and I came home with this lovely print. See more on her website here.
It was really nice to see all my work up on a nice clean white wall with good lighting, I took advantage and went a bit snap happy!
The last two photos are of my two newest hand stitched pictures, which seemed really popular, but didn't sell. They'll be up on my Etsy shop shortly, just as soon as I get some decent pictures of them.
