I think I’m about as ready as I’ll ever be for Friday. I had a go at completing my rabbit on my snow bunnies picture, but am not quite satisfied with it. The bunnies look a bit too different to each other, and I wanted them to look more similar. I might not put this picture in this year’s exhibition, and will probably keep working on it afterwards instead. I’ve printed off a few greetings cards of my work, and am waiting for some cellophane bags to arrive to put them into – they’re in the post. My new design for the leaflet went down well with the art group. I have put addresses for all our websites into it, plus screenshots of the front pages of them all, and I’ve added details of Kevin and John’s forthcoming exhibition and display respectively. We have plenty of copies of the leaflets for this year, and I am wondering if I’ll get more traffic to my website and blogs this way – hope so!
My son may be in this week’s Derbyshire Times with his paper mache ladybird, as apparently some of the winners from his school have been photographed.Meanwhile, the event seems to be turning into a food exhibition as much as an art one. I’ve made one batch of blueberry muffins, and both they, and the healthy eating carrot and orange muffins I mentioned last time, turned out to be very freezable, so that’s exactly what I’ve done. Here’s a link to the recipe. They came out like muffins not scones, as the first comments suggests, and I’ve tried and enjoyed the icing suggested in one of the comments and so will be using it myself. http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5225/orange-and-carrot-muffins
