Magical Photo Portrait by Enhance-Me

WOW is all i can say! This image was created from just an ordinary photograph by the very talented Victoria Dixon of Enhance-Me.
I have admired Victoria's work for a while and thought with Fathers day coming up (June 21st) what a lovely idea for a unique bespoke Fathers day gift for my husband. The process couldn't have been easier and i was amazed at how quick and easy it all was. All i had to do was email Victoria a couple of images of my son and select what theme we liked and Victoria came up with this wonderful fantasy image. My son was equally impressed although a little confused and said "is that me! when did i ride on a dinosaur?" he loves the photograph so much he wants it enlarged for his bedroom.
Enhance-Me do a fantastic range of themes for both girls and boys and also have some wonderful family themes.
Win a Magical Photo portrait PRINTED in POSTER dimensions!
All you have to do tell me how many different themes there are currently in the Holiday Gallery for Father’s Day?
Closing date is 5th of June 2009

Rain,rain and more rain

Forgot to add and wind too! That what this weekends weather has been like at our West Bridgeford arts and craft fair. I do hope the long month weather forcasts are wrong as julys rainfall is well above average ! oh goodness thats all we need.

Knot Just Jigs aquired a new gazebo this week that got its first outing on friday, i was very chuffed to be able carry this one across the lawns and erect it all on my own! the wind was quite bad but we both survived the ordeal (i am so glad i made full use of the the tent pegs and had put in the spares) the rain didn't seem to bother it either, it had a couple of little drips but thats fine as on the whole it ticks all the boxes.

This week see's our Arts and Craft event at the lovely location of "The Square" in Beeston town centre, a thriving and busy town centre, surrounded by interesting areas of open space and countryside, there is definately something for everyone there.

Bumps, Babies and Beyond Event, The Verdict!

This was my stall at the Bumps, Babies and Beyond event (excuse the wobbly banner i forgot to take my drawing pins to hold it in place!)

It was a really enjoyable event with lots of lovely stalls, whilst the footfall could have been higher i dont think it was at all bad for its first event and hopefully once established it will become a great event to both trade and visitors.

The best seller of the day had to be the wooden plaques and letters, lots of mums-to-be were purchasing them for their impending arrivals! i just hope the sonographer is right with the sex of the baby.
