Thursday Treats is my absolute favourite post to put together and as I write this a few days early (yes I love it that much) am sat here with two teeny kitties snoozing on my desk! Oh yes, the Williams’ have kitteeeeens! I am SO FRIGGIN’ excited. They are Maine Coons so are going to be ginormous but right now let’s enjoy the cute. Let me introduce, Rachel – I’m ever so beautiful but still a little shy – Williams and Henry – I like to explore everything & the other day I nearly climbed up the chimney – Williams

Okey doke, on with the rest of this week’s goodness…and yes I think you’re right, Thursday Treats is getting longer and longer every week. I guess you can never have too much of a good thing!

♥ This week I was asked by 16 year old writer and blogger Rachel Phipps if I’d be interviewed for her website. Hell to the yes I would! Head over to her site, Waste my Life Pretending,  to read the full article. I particularly enjoyed answering the question ‘What’s in your bag right now?’ answer – ‘ a hell lot of crap it would seem!’

♥ UK artist Gemma Hadley of Apostle Art does fabulous mixed media work and offers a wide variety of commissions that can be adapted to create you something very personal. How about a piece of art depicting your favourite engagement or wedding image to hang on your wall? “I do my art based on wedding photos (ie I did one of a couple doing their first dance)” Gemma told me “or I can base it on a photo of their time before marriage. I can adapt wedding photos using acrylic, beeswax, paint or whatever the client might want. Much of my work is figurative and experimental, but when I do a commission I like to do paintings for couples, I love the fact it’s more of an ‘artifact’ – something that preserves the memory for life with daubs of acrylic and painterly energy. 
Yes, yes, yes I want one!
