Stockholm Affordable Art Fair 2012

2 Nov

This October saw the first ever Affordable Art Fair in Stockholm.
It was a good one for me – The Crown Prince of Sweden bought a piece of my work, I made Swedish telly and then went on to have a sell out show – HURRAH!!

I have just found this clip from TV4 online, which shows a bit of the fair and a bit of chat about my work. Haven’t got a clue what they’re on about, but y’know…


Happy Birthday Jet!

Happy birthday to my little girl today!

The true meaning of parenting…

25 Jul

Being a Mum is super-awesome. Turns out it’s so good, I’ve done it twice…

It’s all very well and good having a fulfilling life providing a loving and nurturing environment for your child, but surely the best thing about being a parent is just having little miniature versions of your own stuff around the house, non?

Joy! 🙂


Della Mai Ward!

12 Jul

I haven’t just been sat around twiddling my thumbs for the past three weeks y’know…

…OK, I was for some of it, but I also had a baby – how cool is THAT?!

Born on the 23rd June at home in a birthing pool, weighing 8lb 10.5oz.

Now, I’m not one to harp on about birthing (much), but this was my second home birth experience and I can’t even begin to describe how lovely and awe-inspiring it was.
When you tell people you’re having a home birth, you wouldn’t believe many say things like “Oo, you’re brave!”, and stuff like that. Truth is, I’m not brave, I’m just sh*t-scared of hospitals! Given the choice between rushing into a hospital to try and give birth surrounded by people and things I don’t know or just staying at home, having a baby and then having a nice sit down on my sofa with a piece of toast, I’d rather go with the latter.

All hail the marvellous midwives out there who can help make this happen.
Helen Ward salutes you!

Welcome to the world little Della – what a gorgeouspants you are!

In waiting…

20 Jun

So I’ve been taking somewhat of a back seat on life of late.
I have been doing some stuff (honest!), but actually documenting it and getting the pics up on here is apparently a step too far…
Work is finished for now. All reasonable knitting projects completed. All other crafting exploits on list finished (and when does that EVER happen?). Now all there is left to do is wait.

Thought it was only fair to be posting up this pic after writing this post many moons ago.
Due date was yesterday.
Turns out I am really bad at waiting for stuff…
