Ceramic Poppies in the Tower of London

Thanks to a special deal offered at work, I booked a weekend trip to London with my mum for her birthday! A city cruise with afternoon tea (and a bottle of wine) on the river Thames, an overnight stay in the 5 star Grange Tower Bridge Hotel and a day in the Tower of  London was the perfect way to celebrate.

Ofcourse, luck always comes my way as I come across the installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ which showcases ceramic poppies filling the Tower of London’s moat. There is so much history behind the beauty of all these ceramic poppies! To know more, go to http://poppies.hrp.org.uk/

Booklet for The Good Women’s Conference

 

I have always wanted to volunteer and share my artistic time and energy in doing good things for other people. True enough, the opportunity never fails to present itself to me. I heard a friend say that she needed help in creating a booklet for a church event. I know that my skills in design and layout is quite basic so the only way to change that is by doing something about it! Practice makes perfect I always say. Nostalgia is what hit me when I started working on this! It took me back to AS Levels in my Multimedia classes! I think I may be a bit inspired to do more similar projects. Maybe research more on layout and design and volunteer for the local magazine?
