June Update – Busy Busy

Often we say or hear people say “..too much to do and too little time ..”.  Feels like that lately.

Been on hols, made carvings for mum, friends and family there.  

Made more carvings, printed more cards for sale, now a total of 15 designs.

Constructing my book for printing, work still in progress.

Had a visit from lovely Josh from U.S. and today lovely Timmy has flown to Maryland, U.S. followed by a long trip to Australia.  Hence my carving as below for him.  Bon Voyage, Timmy!

Planning another promotion event at Sainsbury’s Witan Gate in Milton Keynes next Saturday 10am – 3pm with my carvings, greeting cards, eBooks and hopefully hardcopy books too.  See you then if you are around!

Mother’s Day

To the child – Day to remember the woman who gave life to you, the someone who watches over you.  She is there when you are running a temperature, she feels your pain.  She does her best to guide you along the way and shares your joy over your achievements.  She always wants the best for you.  You will always be her baby no matter how old you are.

(Mother’s Day – 26 Mar 2017 in UK)
