Collections

A cold, wet and miserable day here in Lincolnshire so I decided to start a long overdue sort out in my workroom.

One hour later and I have gathered together some ‘must have’ bits. All new, unused, original packaging – and there are more, lots more!!!

Admittedly, although it is no excuse, some of them are several years old.

Is it just me or does everyone have a collection such as this?

A new way of meeting

 

Our group meets once a month and because we haven’t been able to gather in person yesterday. Saturday 13th June, we held our second Zoom meeting.

This is a fantastic way of catching up with what is happening in each other’s lives creatively and personally.

I think too, it has brought us closer together as a group.

In our usual meeting place the interaction, apart from the monthly business meeting,  is more often than not on a one to one basis. With Zoom everyone gets involved in the conversations. Members talk and members listen.

The response when you ask for advice about any aspect of your work is extremely helpful and is guaranteed to give you more ideas. I always feel motivated and inspired after each meeting.

Imagine how isolated we would all have felt if this pandemic had happened a few years ago before we all become more technology savvy?

Hopefully we will still make use of platforms such as Zoom once we return to ‘normal’.
