This horiztontal motif has stayed with me for a good few years now, and I never really figured out why. Lines of trees, dry stone walls, city skylines. Compositionally I like the way clear skies and undisturbed landscapes are broken by the upright jagged lines. Emotionally they feel like a rhythm, a pulse - music on a stave, an EKG.

What am I saying? No idea. Don't think, just feel.

It's been a long time coming but I am finally ready to relaunch my shop properly, and to celebrate I am offering 15% off when you spend £25. A good chance to buy in time for Christmas! Pop over to the Chalk Hill Blog for more details and product updates.

Crazees :D

I am up to my eyeballs in work and not really having anything to blog about sadly, but I do make sure I have time with the kids - nothing better for clearing away the cobwebs than a good run around the downs! The time away from my personal work has also given me time to work out what I want to do next year. I am slowly pulling everything together and feeling more and more confident about the future plus I've been busy sewing a few seeds that will hopefully pay off in the long run. My habit of jumping at ever opportuntity that comes along has only resulted in me being over tired and over stretched and confused. No more. I only take the things that will help on my chosen path and say no to the rest.

Saying that I was busy saying no to craft fairs because I felt they were an indulgence that didn't really get me anywhere but I had a bit of an epiphany regarding fairs, hence I am doing the Cambridge Handmade Fair on the 5th December and really excited! There are some fantastic designers and makers so it is a must see if you are in the area, perfect for buying christmas pressies direct from the makers!

And if you want to know what I've got up my sleeve you will just have to wait and see :D
