Networking on the farm

Last night was what we call our Summer Social networking evening, our last before we take a break to resume in September.
Our hosts were Heather & Lynnda. We met at Heathers farm where she runs the Calf House Studios, it's like a mini artists community, they've renovated stables and outbuildings into lovely little studio units where Lynnda has her stamping emporium.

On the farm they are currently pea vining 24 hrs a day, there was a lovely smell of peas in the air and Heather had made some delicious pea dips for us to dunk things in. We had a fascinating tour of the farm and studios, hearing the history about the place as it's been in Heathers family for centuries. And although not summery, we didn't get rained on!

We then made for Lynnda's studio and she gave us a demo to stamp and texture some card and make an inspirational fridge magnet. Then we got stuck into the inks and stamps and made our own. I think they look really effective, good fun to make.

Finished the evening with a bit more networking, catching up with old friends and nibbling more pea dip!

These are some of my artworks of Calf House Studios, Heather uses the green one as their logo.
