New Premises

How very exciting.................our own business premises. On 1st April 2010 we will pick up the keys to our new workshop/studio. We are going to be at Basepoint Havant, if you go to Google maps and type in Decima Designs, you will see the location and how to get there.

Off to Ikea today to look at furniture possibilities, as we will be running glass classes from there after Easter. Can't wait. Only problem is that we still have to finish our Fine Art degree and the deadline is looming fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Busy, busy, busy. Our time at Uni is running out now. Not long to go before the degree show and there is still lots to be done. Ox Market is selling our raku pieces well, and want some more, so the pressure is really on. Wish us luck.

Guess what? finished the presentation, just need to practice a few times to make sure i don't ramble on too much.
No more grrrrr's , well not until time is running short and i'm still building my sculpture for the degree show!!!
Such a worrier, but then that's what makes me me, isn't it?

As you can see folks, Chris is still panicking :o{ What she actually means is we both wanted to try the new glass cutting system instead of doing our presentation work, but it actually took me to suggest it! At one point I even offered to play on my own if Chris wanted to get back to her presentation, SHE DIDN'T TAKE ME UP ON THE OFFER, what does that tell you??????? I rest my case.

Still going Grrrrrrrrrr

Well, where has the day gone?
Delivered our Raku to the Ox Market, thought they would choose the pieces they wanted. Guess what? They took all of our pieces!
Started on presentation, then Eileen wanted us to play with a new glass cutting system that arrived, then it was tea time, then we had to go to work, then the day will be gone and not much presentation done. Grrrrrrrr will I get it done in time?
Why can't days last at least 8 hours longer?

Another day tomorrow, thank goodness.

Well here we are, Wednesday, only a week to go before we have to each give a 15 minute Powerpoint presentation at Uni. "That should be easy enough" I hear you say. Yeah, right, maybe it would be if we had started to put it together, but neither of us have. Not panicking just yet (well I'm not, but Chris is a little bit, she keeps going around going grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!). Trouble is it's all about our own work, with loads of pictures, and inspiration sources, and art theory etc. etc. etc. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

However, had a good afternoon helping Chris to teach cardmaking to a lovely group of ladies at Gosport Discovery Centre (Library as we like to call it). All very relaxing and friendly and enjoyable.

We are taking some of our raku pieces to the Oxmarket Art Centre in Chichester tomorrow, as they have asked if we want to display 'stuff' in their cabinets. Wish us luck.
