Something a little different

The Creeping Thistle  Monster, one of the 'Monsters of the Garden Variety' collection by Ruth Ashton

Well, I've been up to new and exciting things recently. One of them being setting up the mischievous brand of Intolerable Nuisances, which are making their debut appearance in LA this week.

The collective word for a group of monster is called a gaggle. And recently this gaggle of monsters  have travelled from where they originated in the North West of the UK all the way across the pond to LA, where they're currently on display in the Grace and Ritual: Hidden exhibition, at the Iam8bit gallery.

Grace & Ritual is an all women art exhibition, featuring over thirty female artists from across the globe. The exhibit theme, “Hidden,” encompasses secrets, things that go unnoticed and internal things that are hard to see.

something a little more seasonal

Well the sun is shining, the birds are singing and it's a Friday. The day of the week with the most potential. So here's a slightly more refined gif. to share some friday fun!!!
The image is an un-meddled with photo, taken in the highlands of Scotland, in the early morning, when there wasn't another sole around for miles. A perfect morning.

testing testing . . .

Testing, testing, 123, testing . . . 
I decided to spend my lunch hour today learning how to make a GIF. Turns out, though I haven't really delved too deeply into the ins and outs of GIF making, (it was only a lunch hour after all!!!) its not as difficult a process as web design. Which is encouraging . . .
