A really wild party

follow url This weekend I was in Todmorden at the Fielden Centre for a joint 5th birthday party.

follow link It was a wild one – in many senses of the word – a man brought some reptiles for the kids to look at.

Dragons/Monsters/Dinosaurs were the order of the day (perhaps inspired by the visit?) with most of the boys whilst we had lots of Unicorns (above) and Frozen inspired painting for the girls.

Busy again this weekend – in Halifax and starting to book up into September now, even had an enquiry about December!……..Book ahead so as not to be disappointed!peace1


Another busy weekend

Another busy weekend. Yesterday I was at the delightful Heptonstall festival painting lizards, birds,dragons, a witch….. There were some super costumes, story telling and more delicious food.
Another birthday party today and lots of turtles, spidermen and princesses, like the one in the photo. A wonderful venue too, “The Edge” in Elland.peace1

Festival Fever!

Well, ’tis the season for festivals and little ole Calder Valley is no exception. Last week I was painting at the Blackshaw Head Food festival. What a splendid occasion; bursting with local produce – gorgeous cheeses, glorious breads and all manner of foreign cuisine too.  All the smells wafting by……..enough to make a girl wanna put down her paintbrush!

It was fun to paint some teenagers. I ask them “floral or funky?” cause in my experience, they either want flowery eye designs or more starry/graffiti looking styles. I think this one worked out well. What do you think? Catch me this weekend at the Heptonstall festival 12 – 2pm.peace1mo
