A new year brings all sorts of 'new' things.... challenges, projects, and for me, a move to a new city and a new house .... which, means a new workshop too!! At the moment we don't know where or when this is happening so I'll keep you posted!
The new year offers other new opportunities too, like a photo project that can document Evelyn Mae's 2014 .... #Picture52 over on instagram promises to be a great challenge for me. All too often I forget that weeks are passing me by throughout the year and this is going to help me record them! 52 weeks, 52 photos, 1 project .... I am not entirely sure what my project will be yet, but I am excited about getting started!
The SBSG girls came up with this challenge for us for the year, and I think its great. You may remember me talking about the SBSG team before- they are a brilliant collective of business women that I happily call my friends.
I plan to post every Sunday on the Evelyn Mae Instagram page - and I'll also be sharing my snaps here too!
If you fancy joining in- just let us know, and use the hashtag #picture52 so we can find your images on Instagram!
It's already begun, so here's a sneak peak at the other SBSG girls that are involved:
Louise from Doodlemakes is a talented seamstress as well as a creator of really cute doodles. For her #Picture52 she is going to do appliqué art! I can't wait to see what this ends up like after 52 weeks! Louise is on a mission to use colour more and loosen her control over her work.
You can find Doodlemakes Instagram here.
Scarlet Impressions is run by Scarlet and she makes the most beautiful lamp work beads and glass work. For her 52 week project, she is going to be creating some bead weaving, making a picture of her children- it's going to a fiddly project to do, but will look great when it all comes together. You can find her at Scarlet Impressions Intsagram.
Lisa and her family own LJ Crochet, and Lisa plans to crochet 52 a stripy blanket, that uses different stitches for each line. Her crochet is really delicate, so I am sure she will create something really special. If you find her on Facebook you will also see that she has online tutorials teaching crochet techniques.
