If you like coffee as much as I do and you're looking for something fun to do in May this year, why not visit the UK's first ever coffee festival, held in Bath on 15th/16th May.

Day 100

Well - this is it, Day 100! It's going to be a hard habit to break, every morning for the last 100 days it's been - drink a pot of coffee, draw a pot of coffee - now what will I do? Have to credit my Dad for the idea for today's pic, I had a couple of thoughts for the last one but this was the best.
Thanks to Josie Long for thinking up the project, it's been brilliant fun and I have learnt a lot of new techniques which is what I set out to do. I'll really miss looking at everyone else's pics and reading haikus and love stories and looking at photos of gloves etc. Good luck everyone!
I think I need a new project ......

Day 99

Can't believe it's day 99 - sad! Over the course of the last 100 days on this blog I've done a few coffee related polls. Here in a nice pie chart are the results! Mmm coffee and pie .....

Day 98

I've been doing a lot of research recently on heraldry for a job I'm doing, fascinating stuff. So here is my coffee coat-of-arms

Day 97

Really excited to be in the paper today
When I was running out of ideas about mid-way through the project and my family came up with a lot of bad puns (sorry - brilliant plays-on-words!) for me to draw my Grandad came up with 'coffee mourning (morning)' I thought funereal coffee pots were a bit macabre so I went for the day-of-the-dead shrine instead!

Day 95

So, for the final few days we've been asked to push our projects a bit further. I've pushed my coffee pot to the starry heights of .... the starry heights.
If your sign is Coffeepottius:
This morning you will enjoy an uplifting feeling from the daily grind. The current celestial climate is urging you to take a break. Whilst Beanus is retrograde you may feel as if something is brewing, just relax, the sky is insisting something refreshing will happen if you take the plunge.

Day 94

Whenever I find myself in an arty shop I always want to buy those little fancy bits of paper for scrap-booking. I've never done any scrap-booking and don't really intend to but I just can't resist those little bits of paper. So at least I've got some use out of them now!

Day 93

One of my aims with this project was to force myself to use all the scary bits in my art software. I'd tried the dreaded 3d revolve thing before with odd and unexpected results so I thought I'd have another go. My thoughts had turned to chocolate (as they do - fairly regularly!) and I thought I'd make a chocolate easter coffee pot. About as useful as a chocolate teapot!!

Day 92

Yesterday was the Indian festival of Holi which is a celebration of the end of winter and involves people throwing coloured powder at each other. It was also St Davids day and the sun even deigned to make an appearance! This got me thinking about spring festivals and was doing a bit of research and ..... excitement....there is an actual coffee festival .... this year ..... in Bath. I live in Bath ..... and you KNOW I like coffee. Whooop !!!
