My 2018 & New Year Goals - Katrina Sophia

I can’t get over how quickly 2018 seemed to pass. It seems to me that time goes faster as I get older, and last year is definitely the fastest year I’ve ever had! I think it has to do with how hectic my year was. It’s not a bad thing at all – I just […]

Woodthorpe Tropical House - Katrina Sophia

I forgot how I found out about Woodthorpe Tropical House, but I can remember how excited I got! The park is about 15 minutes drive away. So last weekend, despite the rain there was a window of few hours’ sunshine and I grabbed the opportunity to head over and give it a good exploring… Needless […]

Northern Craft Summer Fair & More Market Tips - Katrina Sophia

My last stall with Northern Craft went really well, in fact it proved to be the most successful stall I have ever traded at. I was surprised and so pleased. I was always wondering why I never had as successful a trading day as my first ever stall with Camberwell Arts but I finally overtook […]

Reflecting on 2017 & My Word For 2018 - Katrina Sophia

In the first week of 2018, I found myself still clinging onto my Christmas break. I spent my Christmas in London with family (and a new arrival, my nephew Victor!) and then chilled to the max for a few days, which was really nice after consecutive weekend markets through December that left me feeling frazzled.

Making New Patterns - Katrina Sophia

I have a ‘to paint’ list pinned to my notice board in my studio. But I’ve found that while having a list can be useful, it can be overwhelming deciding where to start because that list is SO long! My list is organised into categories, one of which is ‘patterns’. I think my pattern ideas […]

My Plant Story - Katrina Sophia

When I was younger, I went to B&Q with family and the plant section quickly caught my eye and I brought home a tiny Venus Fly Trap and red Bromeliad. I was clueless about looking after them (I can’t remember that I was actually worried about keeping them alive, and I’m not sure that I […]

Bristol Botanic Garden - Katrina Sophia

Last week I took a week off and headed to Bristol to visit my sister and 8 months old nephew. The UK heatwave hit at the same time, so it actually felt like a holiday. Some of the architecture in Bristol has a seaside feel that enhanced the holiday feeling! I had a beautiful time […]
