Happy Summer!

Wow it's been such  abusy busy busy month for me! I'm just beginning to get my breath back, getmy studio (nearly) back in shape and catch up on some sleep.

A huge thank you to all who came to my shows this month, supported with kind words and beautiful messages.  It is all so appreciated affirming and loved - thank you!

I shared a booth at Bloom 2012 with my two sisters. Clare make stunning glass lovelies along with a range of sassy magnets, mirrors and cards. Geraldine makes her own preserves, jams and chutneys from all her own home grown produce using her aga and my granny's old recopies. YUM!  

It's such a great show with a friendly and loving crowd. This was our second year and it was great to see familiar faces calling in for more of our products.

I also had a solo exhibition as part of Carlow Arts Festival Éigse 2012 which went so great - I sold over half my paintings and was met with so much positive love ohhs and ahhs I nearly couldn't take it! It's always nerve wracking to do a solo show so thank you to all who came, saw, loved, laughed and bought. 

I didn't take enough pictures (as always!) so I just have one from my phone 

I have plans to put my remaining paintings up for sale in the coming weeks and I will be informing my newsletter subscribers first so if you'd like to get the heads up so sign up here!

In other very exciting developments we woke up a couple of weeks ago to 4 brand new kittens!! Mama Dinny (who is a kitten herself!) is doing a great job minding her babies, while we're doing our best to keep our little one at a safe distance!

Happy Summer Everyone
