Me and some women friends were lucky enough to have wedding henna done for us on Friday by the wonderful Humna Mustafa at her Diya Studios in Norwood. Here are some pictures I took on the day, and I will upload the rest when I get them.

This is a ‘trail’ design on the inner arm.

A ‘trail’ design along a finger. This friend also had specky nails done the same day! Sparkly!

This is part of my large bridal henna, just painted. I adore this, it’s so beautiful.

And a circular design, centred on the back of the hand.

We had a lovely time being nurtured by Humna gifting us with her art. Thank you Humna, we loved it!

Hello Darling readers!

I have a cool link for you, a visual quiz: “Can you pick the real Picasso?” I got them all right, I am both proud and relieved to tell you! Let me know how you go in the comments section, or on my Tangerine Meg Facebook page.

Hooray! I have new t-shirts available on Red Bubble! Butterfly Garden, Goblet Still Life and Still Life with bee fabric are now available as t-shirts. Time honoured favourites are still available as Ts too: Rainbow Lady and Rain Girl.

Joining them is this new/old, bold but softly coloured, sunflower design print! You too can have a memento by means of the magic of Print on Demand at Red Bubble. It was made by either a reduction block or 2 blocks. Let me know if you can fathom which it was. That’s not a quiz by the way – I just can’t remember, doh!

Take care of yourselves, dear petals,
Meg

Greetings, Petals!

I hope you will bear with me during my site overhaul. Apologies if some of the writing is A BIT HUGE, or if some of the elements aren’t quite displaying consistently. Trained technicians will be dealing with this as soon as possible! And I am in the middle of changing the colours around too.

Great news! I am going to be doing a special regular “List” kind of feature, about every 2 weeks I’m guessing. It’s yet to be named, but will have tons of fun ideas – or is it tuns of fon ideas? – for getting, noticing or keeping art, colour, and joy in your life. Let me know if you have thoughts on this in the comments section below.

I have been busy in a few arenas…. Now I have a “Page” on FaceBook. Here is my badge:

Last night I attended a dancing class. Step, step, step. Twirl, twirl, twirl. I admit I got a little bit dizzy. Maybe I do need to do the “log” and “egg” rolls during circus warm-up, to acclimatise myself to the motion.

Garden news: The blueberry plants have buds – potential berries, hooray! And with all the rain, the grass is just about taking over. Oranges are ripening on the tree – success! I hope it’s not too late to plant fruit trees, but I think the optimum time has passed. At the growers market I have been buying wonderful pistachio nuts, roasted, salted, and GROWN LOCALLY!

I am being a ScannerMonkey and organising scans of all the latest artwork, so New Stuff is not far away!

Take care,
Meg

Greetings oh wonderous ones,

I have a funny link for you, which will make more sense if you know a little of FaceBook. It’s as if the play Hamlet was recorded on FaceBook. Even if you only know a little of Hamlet, it is kinda cool.

Artwork awaits scanning, dearly beloveds, and awaits me revamping this very site! I am going to refresh word-based parts of the site with the help of Rebecca Leigh (freelance writer extraordinaire). As well as the 4 new lino pictures, I am considering offering serendipity card sets – mixed packs chosen by me, for those who find it hard to choose, but would like a stash of cards for the next few months. And some of the new stuff will be available as tshirts too. Lots of good thinking going on!

I shall leave you with another link that I have been meaning to give you for a while. It’s a blog post by Sonia Simone of Remarkable Communication, on how to beat a terrible horrible very bad mood in about an hour. I like it the way she describes a bad mood as burning up “…all your energy and (tying) up your mental bandwidth”. Sometimes it feels like that.

Take care,
Meg
