Groovy Baby!


Yee Harr ! I had a brilliant time at BOMfest this weekend.

It was my first taste of festivals and I can really understand why people flock to them ... what a fabulous vibe!!



Where else would you get Buddhist monks, jugglers, face-painters, stilt walkers, guide-dogs for the blind, punk rockers, people wearing a tutu with hold-up stockings + socks n wellies, burger vans and ME !



It was completely BONKERS and I LOVED it ... look out Glasto here I come ... tho I'm still not so sure about the camping bit !!

BOMfest - Saturday 16th July


OM Good Grief ... I've got a stall at the Barnsley Original Music Festival this coming weekend - I've never attended a music festival before - I've no idea what to expect but I'm sure it will be great fun ... wish me luck !

PS. I drew the line at camping though !!!

All A-Glow!

I spent a fab afternoon last week at The Glow in Leeds with my good friend Diane having a mini makeover.



Neither of us wear much makeup as a rule so it was a bit of an experience having our nails, hair and makeup done - not to mention spending an hour with Leroy having our photo's taken - though the HUGE glass of rose definitely steadied the nerves !

For anyone thinking about a makeover I can highly recommend The Glow in Leeds (http://www.theglowleeds.co.uk/) their prices are very reasonable and there is no hard sell on the photos at the end - in fact I had to ask them !

Handmade at the Corn Exchange Update


Wow .. what a fabulous venue The Corn Exchange was for the craft fair this weekend

I had a wonderful time, though it was a teeny little bit warm under the glass roof at times !

I met some lovely new crafters and artists - I recommend that you take a look at their work
