A case of insomnia ..


_Saturday morning and all is quiet in the world outside and inside.. _I have had a disastrous night's sleep... words colliding and colluding in my head. Not the best sleeper at the best of times..so here I am tapping out more words and trying to explain to my disgruntled cat, why his breakfast is not what he ordered!__I can see how addictive blogging can be but I am in danger of losing sight of my original blueprint by talking about blogging itself.. this is about Cowboys & Custard and the inspiration and aspirations of a frustrated artist!__So back to the blue-print..__Having completed an apprenticeship in Antiquarian Bookbinding in the 80's I then wandered into a short affair with upholstery that led to chair caning then picture framing...' flighty' you might say ??? well more .. restless and seeking something to call my own.. and then there was (drum roll ) Cowboys & Custard.._I have always loved vintage and the world of small and miniatures.. worlds within worlds.._I too have a yearning to return to childhood ... just for a day.. and be reunited with my beloved toys, books and dolls..._Now I can indulge in this second (nay ..third) childhood and create small worlds in a box .. all very self indulgent but fun!_So welcome to my small world and take a step inside all that is Cowboys & Custard ....

Such a cute picture. I love the way that cats make it so obvious when they're really not happy with you. My Mums cat is very much like that and usually gets his own way!

I can feel your insomnia pain...must be a common element of creative people. But, usually something wonderful flourishes from sleepless nights!
