I know, I know I have been seriously neglecting my blog, we have been so busy having fun.
The last of the weekends ceramics are now ready to go in the kiln….so you will all have your wonderful Fathers day creations in time (yes I even go into Create Ossett on my day off lol.) Am particularly loving the Fab Dad sharks :)….
This week we still have time to make cards, badges and keyrings for the special man in your life….it doesn’t have to say Dad, the special man in our life is called Daddish…as the saying goes, “Anyone can be a Father, but it takes a special man to be a Daddy.” We have such mixed families nowadays, that certain occasions can end up being a bit fraught…and that isn’t the way it should be, it should be a celebration of love.
So whoever you are sending love to …Dad, Stepdad, Mum Dad, Someone Special, enjoy creating something special…..and letting them know how much you love them ….
love and hugs
Sky @ Create Ossett

I keep forgetting to write…..no excuses I just do.
As you may know we are setting up Create Ossett which is an arts and craft space for everyone to enjoy….and we all seem to be doing so.
I shan’t make a million, heyho, but we are making sure that anyone who visits can explore their creative side, at with activities starting at just £1 it means no one is excluded on cost.
The creations everyone produces astounds me…It is pure joy to see……
But I keep forgetting to write….one day I shall find the balance, because I would love to share all that we do….( i shall not lie I am also a lot better with paints and glitter than figuring out computers and wordpress).

It is always good to have a reminder, we are just a small dot on the Earth, but we can do a lot to help it, or at least minimise our impact.
So lets all plant and grow something, try to reduce waste products…..(oh the things we can use for crafts lol ) and look after our beautiful natural world.
Happy Earth Day
from Sky @ Create Ossett
So, we have decided here at Create Ossett, to issue a little art challenge each month.
It’s not a competition, just a little thing to inspire us all.
If you wish to post pictures that would be amazing. If anyone fancied donating the finished piece to our shop in Ossett, then they will be submitted to our charity auction next April.
This is meant to fun…:)
Aprils challenge title is HERO.
This can be whatever that means to you. A superhero, a friend, a garden hero, someone from history…it really doesn’t matter, it is personal to you.
You can email pics to email@example.com or post to our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/createossett/
First of all, thanks for looking at our website…it is far from ideal. Like the shop it is a work in progress. I am juggling lots of things whilst sticking, painting and making new friends.
Our shop address is 66A Bank Street, Ossett WF5 8NW.
We are currently arranging lots of fun sessions for everyone to join in, or you can just drop by and see whats going on.
The best place at the moment is our shop window or http://www.facebook.com/createossett/
We will shortly be setting up an email list and I WILL get the website sorted…I just need to find a minute…hope you enjoy the Easter Break …..best wishes love Create Ossett
Not had much time to write…or draw…or do anything except move boxes and admin….
I am not complaining , the dream is finally going to come true…and on the 2nd April we shall be opening our doors to our amazing new workspace…a place where you can come and stick and paint and draw and create. Stop for a coffee, learn a new craft, make a badge, create a card…everything shall be here for you….we will even clean up the mess.🙂
We do hope you will pop by and watch us grow into our dream. So no, I am not getting much crafty stuff done this week…the only paper I have folded are invoices. the only art supplies I have touched are going into boxes ready to move….It will be worth the wait🙂
If you are in Ossett, Wakefield this Saturday we will be having a little take and make sessions for Mothers day cards..I will have the kettle on…pop in🙂
love this pic…..someone has found a create space in between the packing🙂
66A Bank Street,
So here I am ….caught up in the chaos of launching a new business and workshop…a messy head and an equally messy workspace…still catching up from being away for 2 days for a trade show.
I was going to cry..then I remembered ..well I remembered life..today is the most important day of my life..
I have the memory of the lovely new friends ( I hope I can call you friends.) I met yesterday. People with the same hopes, dreams and desires. I have a stack of orders and leases to sign off. I could go crazy…but then I would have missed the point….
So here I am, and I see…the sun is streaming through the window…I have put on a piece of music that…well just does something to me….I am reaching for my paints..I am in the moment.
Today is the most important day in my life…..for we only have today……and a whisper of a promise of tomorrow…
so now I sit here..with a cup of tea…inky fingers..and a smile on my face….and that is what life is all about….
Enjoy your day my lovelies,
Thanks as always for reading.
tweet me @createossett
I only have eyes for you….well not only eyes. We have so much fun stuff for you to do.
I am impatient for more room. We are having a fab time holding sessions and working from the comfort of our dining table….but i cannot wait to open up the door to the shop.
In the meantime anyone wanting to make Mothers Day cards and gifts, or have a go at something creative….give me a shout….you will be more than welcome.
Create Ossett ..new shop coming soon🙂
