I have been busy getting things ready. It's amazing how long everything takes, especially when you've become unaccustomed to working to deadlines. I ordered some greetings cards a week or so ago - they arrived the other day, so it was time to sit down and put them into little cellophane sleeves, to keep them nice and clean while potential customers riffle through them next week. No, next week, that day after tomorrow! That's when North East Open Studios starts. In case I hadn't mentioned it before. Here's a couple of my cards - both of watercolour paintings by yours truly.
The next thing to get done was to get rid of all the junk - sorry, artist's materials - from the cabin/shed in the back garden, which is our venue for the week. Again, this has been quite a slow process, as I kept finding things that I didn't know I had, or things that I had thought were lost forever. I seem to have quite a lot of paper. I do have a bit of a thing for paper, or rather stationery. I can never have too much of it. I really should just use it all up, paint things or write things on it. No need to buy any for a while, anyway.
