Lost in a weird and wonderful world of air

Hope you all had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend....it was a nice, relaxing one for us - the highlight of which being a visit to an amazing creation by the Architects of Air . I found out about it a few weeks ago whilst surfing the blog world, and I'm so glad I did - it was truly breathtaking, and made you feel all light and floaty inside....take a look:

and this is how it looked on the outside:

If you happen to be in the Nottingham area this week then I thoroughly recommend a visit - Luminity III will be residing at the city's Lakeside Centre until June 5th....
go check it out!! :)

All poinsettia'd out!

After a very successful Surtex this year it looks set to be a promising time ahead with everyone in a buying mood again - hoorah!! This is a welcome relief for us all after a couple of relatively quiet years over there... 

This past week I've been busy working on follow-up designs from the show....many of which involve poinsettias!! Just one more wrap to go and I can move onto something new....here's a little look at what I've been up to:

Surtex 2011

Ahhhh - phew - we're back - and just when I'd finally started blogging again! This post should have appeared yesterday, but sadly not due to some technical difficulties at Blogger HQ!! I'm pleased to hear that it all seems to be sorted now though, so here goes....

As mentioned in my  latest post I've been busy preparing for this year's Surtex show for the past few weeks, and now the time has finally arrived with the first day of the show being tomorrow. If you happen to be around then come along to the Inspire By Design Ltd booth - 326 - we have lots of lovely designs on show this year; all available for license....we even have banners (part of which featured above), bunting and wall decals on display - we've really prettied it up this time round....let's hope we catch your eye!!

As well as myself, you can also see the fabulous work of fellow bloggers Little Red, Rah Rah, Lucy B, Fatty Moe & Helen Hallows....so come along and have a browse! :)

-traditional Christmas.....

 - fun Christmas....

- and a little bit of everyday...all squeeeeeeeezed into the last 30 days or so.

Phew! Fingers crossed for a great show this year!! :)
