Well It’s my 252nd post.   Since starting on 29th November 2008, I have only missed 6 days.  I am doing a lot of art or design related posts and have introduced new categories.

Still stuck on my altered book and need to put more Transcription on.  But I have now got my Newcastle trip to write about, plus books that I am reading, not to mention the ‘Weird and Whacky Design section that is proving popular.

The teapot designs  that I keep finding, never cease to amaze me!  My viewing stats are going up quite a bit now, which just goes to show that perseverence is it’s own reward! The next update shall be around the 300 post mark.

I always make sure they have comas between each one and no spaces.  Still, over and upwards, so they say….
