A Cuppa Video...

mug from Sue C
  This week  has flown by in a whirlwind of work and play
 there was maybe a bit of a chocolate hangover due to easter celebrations
 well maybe not from chocolate as I ate a shockingly small amount... for me anyway
 but more it was all a bit busy and frantic
 and my brain seemed to be stuck in fast forward for the last four days
 but happily I have managed to get a few new cuppa paintings done in amongst the  illustrations stuff, easter break stuff, getting used to being owned by a cat stuff
 and all sorts of other weird little jobs, plus some lino cutting stuff... that was very fun stuff
 except for when Sinus crept up on me and scared the bejeepers out of me
 how I didn't lose a hand, or take out the shelf in front of me I have no clue
 I know I aged about twenty years... he is creepily ninja quiet when he wants to be
 so there has been all sorts of bits and pieces 
 that have been systematically making me into a crazy woman all week

Mugs from Linda K and Cindy A
In between the madness there was three moments of calm
these three are awesome
plus I had a few new ones sent which freshens up the pile of inspiration
and I even got in and made a video that flips through and shows most of the ones that I have done which is just below
it was kind of cool seeing them all in a big pile and flipping them all into frame
details on how you can be part of it are up above... 
 happy painting all...xx

Your mugs are all so great, but i'd say my favourite is the first one, it brings a smile to my face, cheery and so happy!

I love this most recent mug and your video was fab - I didn't realise you'd painted so many already!! All so different. I hope mine gets into the pile someday!

Some cool cats there. Great project. You should have a one woman show of just your cuppa's. Xox

I enjoyed looking at your video, hadn't realized how huge a project you've been doing! It was also nice hearing your voice and your story about the start. You rock!

That cat cup is adorable. I'm sorry you are being stalked by Sinus....maybe get him one of those little bells to wear around his neck so you know when he's coming. Happy PPF

It was sheer joy to see all your brilliant mug drawings and to hear your voice-great vid!! Love the new ones to-the cats one is darling.

Carol said...

Your mugs are always fantastic and I love watching the flip-through ♥♥♥ So much talent !

Giggles said...

Oh my goodness what a fabulous project this is...I watched the video with the sound off since everyone is still in bed and didn't want to wake them... but wow so much potential with this project... I can see prints made from them...a line of cards...a flip book, tea towels, calendars, tee-shirts...aprons, table cloths, fabric, a book with a small story behind each cup... I love it so much each cup so carefully chosen really shows each personality and flavour!! I will be watching this video several times more!! Thanks for sharing and thanks for doing our mugs so spot on!! LOVE them all!! Stunning project!!

Hugs Giggles
