'When life seems one too many for you, Go and look at a cow...' 
 
This poem was sent to me by a follower on the Lauren's Cows Facebook page (if you're not following yet then you must!) and it may be my favourite poem ever. It was published in The Old Farmer's Almanac back in 1936 and is simply wonderful! I urge you to spare a minute to read it because will brighten your day!

Ode to A Cow 

Let's paint the day Purple! 
It's the 26th March which means the international day for epilepsy also known as Purple Day. On this day we all come together to raise awareness of this condition and help make a difference to the lives of people affected by epilepsy. People such as myself. 
That's right I have epilepsy. It's not something I usually talk about as I think there's quite alot of fear around the word 'epilepsy'. It can feel as if people are watching you out of the corner of their eye just waiting for you to fall over! However the only way to help people understand the condition is for epileptics to tell their stories and help remove some of those stigmas associated with the condition. So as it's Purple Day, I am opening up to you all! Here is my story...

Melody's Story 
 
In September I had the pleasure of visiting a local Jersey Farm in York and spending an afternoon with a lovely herd of milking Jerseys. Since my trip one of Greyleys Jersey Cows has made it into the Lauren's Cows herd, with many more to join in due course. 
As you know, I love to know all about the cows I paint and who knows them better than the people who take care of the cattle every day. So without further ado, here is Melody's Story!

WHO RUNS THE WORLD? GIRLS!! 
 
It's international women's day and to celebrate what is probably the most important event in our calendar, I wanted to share with you the women that inspire me most. There are so many women who have inspired me and shaped the woman that I am today. However there is one lady in particular that I look to in times of uncertainty. So this blog is dedicated to my ultimate female icon. She's a bad ass like no other, a lady of the night, a dead shot with an arrow, an actual Goddess, She's my idol...

"If everyone who'd complimented our beautiful gallery had bought just a card we'd still be open" 
 
This week is no ordinary week! It's Indie Week and that means it's time for 'Just A Card'. 
 
Just a Card campaign is very close to my heart. The whole idea is to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops rather than heading straight to the big high street names. 
I've been joining in with the Indie Week 'Just a Card' challenges! So let's spread the word that all purchases, even just a card, are vital to the survival of our streets small businesses.

Find York's craftiest creatives this Christmas!  
 
The Lauren's Cows Christmas Roadshow is well on it's way. We will of course be attending our annual favourites, such as Ripley Castle Christmas Fair and Country Living Glasgow but we shall also be adding some new shows to the mix. One which I am very excited to be a part of is Etsy Made Local York. If you don't know Etsy, it's a whole online world of handmade treasures. From jewelry to dining room tables, it is an online marketplace crammed full of products made by independent makers all over the world.  
When it comes to Christmas however these makers come out from behind your computer screen and step into the real world so you can browse their creations in person. Better still they are all from York! So here are some of my top picks to see at Etsy Made Local, York.

Pumpkin Pie Recipe 
I recently baked a Pumpkin Pie for a photoshoot to accompany my beautiful china pouring jugs. Since posting the photos I have been inundated requests for the recipe! So here it is! I found my original recipe on the BBC Good Food Website, and have adapted slightly to suit my own taste. Why not have a go yourself, it's nice and simple to make, and a really tasty Autumnal pudding. Thanksgiving is just around the corner so treat yourself. Then all you need is your Lauren's Cows jug!
