  • Central Fife Open Studios – Week 2 | Milomade
    worked on a few new rings and posted up the progress on Facebook at regular intervals I got lots of likes and comments and also managed to sell one of the rings I d made it s on it s way to California right now I was hoping for a busier weekend and it was but it was only slightly busier than the last I put this down to the fact that it s our first year of Open Studios in Central Fife and there wasn t that much advertising done There were no posters or leaflets about the event in any of the local venues and not many people knew it was happening I decided to print my own leaflets vistaprint last minute rush and posted as many as I could through people s doors this was all at my own expense Most people who visited my studio came because they d got my leaflet and a few didn t know that other studios were open at all Next year we ll be expected to pay 50 to be included in the event and so I m hoping that this fee will cover leaflets so that I don t have to get my own professionally printed I don t mind distributing leaflets but it d be great if the fee covered the cost of printing them One main comment that people made was that the brochure was very confusing as all the locations were mixed up so you couldn t easily see who had studios in which town It would ve been better if all the Kinghorn folk were grouped together for instance Another annoying factor for visitors was that everyone was open on different days and at different times making visiting studios in one location a pain I certainly agree with this point and next year it d be better if everyone opening their studios in Kinghorn could do the same days and times The website was also a bit of a contentious issue but I m a web designer so I m a bit biased I would love to get people s opinions on it as I really don t think it does us proud as professional artists and creative people please comment below http centralfifeopenstudios moonfruit com As a web designer who designs and builds sites for a living I can t help but be overly critical about the site I hate everything about it apart from the green used for the logo I did type a very long rant about everything that is wrong with the site but decided to cut it and just send those comments directly to the organisers instead of included it here Constructive criticism is always a good thing in my opinion as it helps you do a better job the next time around so hopefully the points I raise will be taken on board The site is a start but I think it could be a hundred times better I

  • Laying Foundations | Milomade
    Progress Laying Foundations 27th May 2010 We had amazing weather last weekend So we ditched the interior DIY plans and covered ourselves in a layer of protective sun cream and headed out to the garden We ve been wanting to get the greenhouse up ever since we moved in several years ago but it s just never happened We even ordered the sand and that s been sitting in our driveway for the past year or so making it really difficult to put the bins out so annoying We managed to get 2 3 paving slabs off someone on Freecycle too and these were plonked in the driveway next the sand With so much DIY to do it s hard to keep focused sometimes but the weather made the decision for us this weekend This is a shot of the garden from above showing where we re putting the foundation for the greenhouse We discovered the foundations that must have been used for a greenhouse years ago and we re extending this It was full of really good soil so we dug this out and that is now a mountain the dog loves to climb on the other side of the garden We then dug up all the gravel that the previous owner has covered the garden up with hence the expanse of bare soil and poured this into the hole we d created we also gave tons away on Freecycle as there was so much of it Day 1 Prep So we hefted no I ll rephrase that Colin hefted all the slabs into the back garden by rolling them along the gravel path down the side of the house while I cleared a load of decorative chips from the crazy paving at the front of the house we had a big hole to fill with rubble so the chips were going into that as we have hated them ever since we moved in If I had a time machine I would certainly go back in time and stop the person setting rocks in concrete at the front of the house and covering them in decorative chips so that I didn t have to spend 3 or so hours scooping them up into a bucket it was such a fiddly time consuming job and that was only half the front garden cleared Not looking forward to doing the other half As we d decided to extend the foundation area for the greenhouse so that we could have pots and a bench around the side of it we needed additional rubble and it was a joy to dump all the decorative chips in there We ve also decided to get rid of the white concrete seat at the bottom of the garden as it s at a really odd angle is really ugly everyone who visits thinks it s a tomb of some sort and very uncomfortable to sit on so knocked away a bit of this to fill the
