It's been too long...

Oh my goodness, it's been a bloomin' age since I last wrote anything on here - I will try my very best to do better, I promise. While I'm getting my act together please accept this image by way of apology and I'll be back very soon with something new. Kx

Hello 2014...

Wishing you all a very happy 2014. May it be filled with sunny days and blue skies, clear nights filled with stars and a less complicated way of being...

A spot of Manifesting...

Time to get our acts together... a spot of manifesting is in order I've been reminded...


Thought I should use images of some of our favourite places to help the process along!

 Maybe we don't have to be at the seaside for it to be somewhere fabulous...


So here goes...

I can almost taste the Pimms while we sit in our huge wild garden on balmy summer evenings while one or two people wander around our workshop and studio deciding which of our work they will be buying. Our kids are climbing the huge trees in the garden and the animals are basking in the sun... all is right with the world.

Time to make the dreams happen...

Thank you Amanda x

Big Sky...


This has to be one of my most favourite images that I've taken recently - thought I'd share it with you!

In light of the recent terrible weather - (drought, what drought?) I just thought a sunny day was needed!

Un-ashamed Self Promotion...

In a rather uncharacteristic flash of self-promotion I'd like to introduce you to...

Daisy and Jess

Rescued Treasures & Vintage Delights


This is the business started with my lovely and very talented friend Emma - you may know her from her blog Oak Before Ash.

Daisy and Jess is the product of our passion for re-use, re-purposing and recycling and combines our love of all things (well most of them) vintage and an untreatable seaside addiction!

 



We are excited to have gone live with our beautiful Etsy shop and website www.daisyandjess.co.uk and are stupidly proud of our newest range of upcycled seaside buttons.

Made from some of the most beautiful pebbles or from periwinkles, turban top shells or sea glass beach combed from the spectacular Dorset Coast they are truly original and will add something truly unique to your handmade items or customise any shop bought cardigan!


Please let us know what you think and have a look at our website for more information. We also have a blog Daisy and Jess for random insights and often quirky things that have caught our eye!

I'll be blogging later in the week about a piece of  glass I'm making for Leanne Salisbury @leannetrekchina on Twitter as a raffle prize in her goal to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust - a slightly longer version of 'On my desk today...' than I tweet.

Featured Artist... That's me!!!

A bonkers but rather lovely week - they seem to be flying by at the moment - is that an age thing or are we spinning faster these days?

I'm still rather excited by having been lucky enough to be the Featured Artist this month on the Creating Trouble Blog - the lovely Alex was kind enough to feature me and allow me space for my random rambling answers to her questions - please take a minute or two to have a look...

This is the view in my garden tonight... loving this early burst of summer weather, thank you!

On my desk...

Something about the way the sun's shining onto my desk sees me hopeful, sparks the need to make and leaves me feeling like I'm bathed in a smile...

On my desk today...

Right now I'm thinking bold... with many varied plans from melting glass to painting, sewing and planting it's all about colour for me at the moment and I'm loving it all!

With a trip to the sea almost as necessary to us as breathing is it any wonder that my thoughts turn to the vast ocean of possibility that it offers, plans are afoot and I can't wait (not sure I've ever said 'afoot' out loud!!).



Oh and just to let you know, the very lovely Fuggles Gallery is once again open - find my work there and enjoy their space, it's very welcoming. I've also started the process of uploading my work to the West Country Gallery - a daunting process but I'm getting there... slowly! My Etsy shop, Kate Osman Glass is finally up and running and although lagging a little behind my website's almost updated... A full time job this e-commerce stuff!
