  1. Hi Jane. I just started this course last week and of all the blogs I've found you seem to be the nearest to where I'm at so far (just finished my colour wheel!). I'm saving your blog to my reader so I can keep up with how things are going with you.

  2. Hi Angie,

    Lovely to hear from you. Sorry its taken me so long to see your comment!! Had a lapse for holiday season/busy at work etc. Hope you are getting on ok. I am finding it tricky doing this 'home alone' especially when I have had a gap!! But am enjoying it and will keep plodding on with it.
    Recently, reduced my hours at work so am hoping to have more time to focus on this.
