Challenge Your Creativity

Challenge Your Creativity 
This week's image: June Moon
 I have set up a facebook group page to get your creative juices flowing. Each week, an image will be uploaded and you can use that to inspire a creation or share any work you have that connects to the theme. The aim of the game is to beat down those procrastination critters and share, with the world, your creations. It's also a way to generate more traffic to your website or on-line shop or even just to enjoy and like what other people are creating. Most of all, it's a fun activity challenge. Click on the link above or below and join the challenge.

Glasgow School of Art fire

Everyone with a connection to Charles Rennie Macintosh's masterpiece is devastated to see it in flames. Macintosh designed every aspect of the interiors as well as the architechtural structure - a school for artists by an artist. The seminar hall and library were wooden wonders. That's why we're all aghast at what may have been lost. Then we feel for all the students who were putting the finishing touches to their degree shows. With the final hand-in being that afternoon, many of them may have lost all their work.

It's a personal loss of memories.

One thing we are all greatful for, is that no lives were lost nor were there any injuries.

Ooft! Sometimes it takes so much time to update, or even remember, social network sites. I'd almost forgotten that I had a Flickr account - just another place where you'll find a selection of my photos.

Indian by Nature

We had a really nice Indian meal last night, for B's birthday. The blending of spices truly is an art form! As well as the food being delicious, the service was impeccable, something, I'm afraid to say, that is severely lacking here in Prague. Thank goodness for that admirable Indian politeness.
So, when in Prague, I highly recommend taking in 'Indian by Nature',
Hradcanska. There is one in Karlin too but, as yet, I haven't tried it.

Clear your mind

Hey, I found this really awesome Etsy treasury, by Shirdi, at includes my Blue Glowstripe Pendant :-)

Blogger App

Well, I've got no more excuses for not blogging as I've just installed the blogger app.

We were invited to go to a beer festival, in Strazov, last week, and a second this week, in Usti nad labem, and both times we were unable to go :-(  These mini festivals are either organised by or attended by Lukas and Suzi from Ostry Lokal in Zizkov. They were extremely kind in offering us a couple of holiday weekends in their gorgeous family cottage last year, in Brezy. We accepted and had a lovely time wandering through fields and forests and were given a crate of the tasty Aldersbacher Urhell beer for sustinance ;-)

Instead of drinking on this dreech Satuday, B is going to watch some footy and I'm going to prepare tests, blah! Hopefully, I'll not spend too long on the tests and will get the chance make some things too.

I hope it's sunny where you are, if so, have a wee beer, enjoy your weekend and don't bother thinking of me slogging away.

All righty then...let's get blogging again!

So, after a bout of facebooking, tweeting and favouriting on Etsy, it's time to get back to blogging: apparently it's still a good tool. I often wonder just how all these social networking experts find the time to spread their visibility and create and work and run a house and bring up a family, etc., etc. Well, I'm trying to take a leaf out of others' books and will attempt to leave regular posts. and hopefully build up a following.

Here goes...
