Painting plus a bit more painting is how the last week or two has rolled for me. No sewing machine in sight! We did a huge renovation on our house a few years ago and I madly painted all the interior walls at the time and didn't bother with the skirting boards, architraves, doors or windows. Now after too many years of them staring at me I figured it was time...................eek!!! It is such a massive job and as I'm working my way around I realise that it is going to take so much longer than I anticipated. There are so many tedious jobs to be done like filling nail holes and sanding, not my forte! I have painted in a few spiders webs and not sanded as well as I should but it will be an improvement. In my excitement (that's a bit of an exaggeration)I have taken the white paint to just about everything in sight! I plan on painting all the dining chairs white as well as this great stool I picked up on the side of the road and a few frames... So, I am being a little creative!
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
