An embryonic business for me

Owly Images

Yesterday I trotted off with a concept for starting a new business. I presented it to an enterprise scheme and have been invited to develop my business plan. I will have a mentor! Woohoo that is good. The picture above is involved to some extent and once I have worked out a way to describe the concept of the business without sounding a complete and utter fool then I will be doing that here.

Any where near Heaton on Saturday 6th October?

BiographyThis will definitely be an evening worth attending. Holy Moly and the Crackers are a great band and you should make the time to go and see them. Be good to yourself! Holy Moly and the Cracker biography -
“I should explain to your Lordship what is meant by Crackers … they are a lawless set of rascals on the frontiers of Virginia, Maryland, the Carolinas, and Georgia, who often change their places of abode”
A letter to the Earl of Dartmouth, 18th century

Height of Giraffe Creativity

I have a new project on to do with names and it all happens over at Name of Isabella. Today I included a post regarding the birth of a baby giraffe and then I got creative and knocked up some T shirts in honour of the wee gangly soul. Thought I'd mention them over here - I have a few other emotions to test out on the little character.

I’ve Abandoning Dynamic Views for Blogger

I was briefly tempted to have a dalliance with dynamic views for blogger and I did turn it on for a while. However I made the decision that it had to go. I have changed for now to a template for blogger that I’ve made myself and uploaded – this template at the moment is a bit basic and I will be working on improving that but at least I feel I have a little more control over the layout and being confident on how each user is going to view my blog.

An update on artists – Holy Moly and The Crackers.

I have to admit it’s been great following the early career of Holy Moly and The Crackers and never have I been more grateful to social media and the internet for enabling me to keep up to date with what is going on.
Earlier this year Holy Moly and The Crackers were in a competition run by Supajam to play at the Hop Farm Festival. Anyway to cut a long story they won and they went and they played.
Supajam have now published their follow up interviews of the band after the festival and you can follow that below.

Here is a little quote from the Supajam site to get you started

Hop Farm 2012-- How was it for you... Holy Moly & The Crackers

So another Hop Farm Festival is done and dusted, but a fleeting memory of sunshine, laughter, cider and the gleam off Peter Gabriel's shiny dome.
As ever SupaJam were proud to send a whole host of acts to the festival, where they delighted crowds with some sheer musical wizardry. We thought we'd catch up with the bands and see just how it was for them.. Here's what they had to say...

So what is my association with this lot then? Well I’m just proud of my niece Ruth (Conrad is fab too and our family think he’s the bees knees*!x) and I love the music that they are creating as a band. It’s been a joy to watch and listen to them developing their style and their musical career. Hoping they have a fabulous summer after the launch of their first album – First Avenue.
Good Work Holy Moly and the Crackers – keep it up and try and get some more gigs going in York. x
* Disclaimer – just felt like it was a good day to say Bees Knees!

So the challenge from Kate on here was to mention ways in which you are changing your life. Well that is quite appropriate for me at the moment.
I’ve just started plotting and accounting for the things I enjoy and those I avoid. It’s only been a few days but strangely I find some small buzz in attending to the tasks and ticking or counting them off. So my app of choice for this has been TraxItall.

Been creating in an up cycling type way.

Today has seen the first stage of my new box project completed. This will be easier when my glue gun arrives. I'd also like some bronze paints and black and antique gold. Blurt has been trying to make the paper tubes like I have been doing at quiet points in the evenings but she is getting frustrated as it must be a lot harder than I have been making it look! I don't suppose trying to watch James Bond at the same time helps her. Any way here is a glimpse of my first test creation.
