Thank you!

Thank you so much to everyone who
 made a donation for the Samaritans in the UK in my last post.
The piece of art I made available for this purpose is going to a wonderful woman called Gina. She was the first person to donate. 

You may still donate if you wish, I am going to double the amount I collect and will send it in next week. 
For anyone who doesn't know, the Samaritans is a listening service for distressed people, it is totally free and run by volunteers.
 So when your art journal can't take it anymore there is always a listening ear.


Now back to Popjesland, the weather here is totally pants!!!
Rain and more rain. I have some original hand painted Lottie Popjes ready to be photographed for my on line shops but the light is just not good enough. I had wanted to show you the whole family but it will all have to wait.

This waiting and not getting things done is becoming the story of my life.
 I had wanted to play with Cameron and Lisa
 but I have been approached by a gallery in Lancashire
Can you believe it...approached, I thought you had to get your bum on their front door and beg but no they approached me about my Popjes dolls. 
My head is growing and not much drawing is done. 
I am heading to the studio now to catch up.

Sunny Lottie is in my Folksy store

WTG Manon!!!! That witch you mentioned before must be getting a real kicking from the universe for trying to put you off. Can only imagine she was jealous of your skills. the Samaritans have always been a worthy cause, only too glad to help out :D XXX
