“Over the past two years of exhibiting my work and meeting my collectors, the one thing a lot of people have told me is ‘there is just something in the eyes of your animals that make them almost human’ This thought is something I have really tried to draw on with my latest collection, ‘Animal Antics’. I have added accessories that give each animal their own individual personality – to ‘humanise’ them just that little bit further.”

Introducing our “Donate or Discount” Scheme

We’ve recently been thinking about other ways in which we can help our customers, our wider community and the amazing teams across the NHS. 

We know that for many, health and well-being are top of mind at the moment, and for others finance may be a bit tighter than usual. So we’re excited to launch a new donate or discount schemedesigned to make things a bit more affordable for you, and to support the incredible work being done by the NHS. Read on to find out more below.

On the health and well-being front, we know that being forced to spend so much time at home takes its toll, especially for those living on their own. So we’re sharing details of some great initiatives from the local community who like us are working hard to keep their businesses going as well as some ideas we’ve come across from further afield. Read on to find out more. We’ll be sharing more over the coming weeks.

Our new discount or donate scheme offers a 10% discount on all purchases until the end of April or if you prefer, you can opt for us to donate your 10% discount to the NHS Covid-19 appeal.  The choice is yours.

So, if you’ve had your eye on something or need to buy a gift, you’ll be saving a bit, or helping the NHS, as well as helping us to get through these tough times.  Head over to our website for inspiration, and follow us on Facebook or Instagram where we’ll be posting lots of gorgeous things.

To make things even easier, we are now also able to arrange collection or free delivery within the local area (utilising full social distancing measures). 

* Please note, delivery times will vary dependent on what is purchased. Please speak to us beforehand and we’ll advise on a case by case basis.

About the NHS Charities Covid-19 Appeal

 

A donation to the NHS Charities COVID-19 Urgent Appeal helps fund well-being packs, including food deliveries, high energy/protein bars/drinks, snacks, refreshments, wash kits and overnight stay kits for staff and volunteers. It could also cover the cost of travel, parking, accommodation for staff working extra shifts and having to stay away from home.

As well as the above, the money could also go towards supporting isolated patients, mental health support for NHS workers and more. This list is certainly not exhaustive!

Local Initiatives and Things to Do

Chocolate to your doorstep!

Easter is just around the corner and we all need chocolate!  The lovely Amy from Hill Road’s Indulgence is doing free Easter Egg deliveries on Thursday and Friday this week in Clevedon.  Hop on to her social media pages to see what’s available and how to order.  You’ll find a fantastic selection including dairy free, gluten free and vegan options.  So if you can’t see your family right now – you can still surprise them with a lovely Easter gift so they know you’re thinking of them.

Summer wardrobe time

If the warmer weather has you thinking about summer clothes, Jane (Pale Blue, Hill Road) has lots of gorgeous summer stock arriving and is modelling it beautifully on her social media pages, with great seasonal discounts to make buying a little easier and free delivery.  We may not be going abroad but we still need new clothes!

Paint by Numbers

If you are like us and can only draw match stick men but yearn to do something creative, check out painting by numbers for adults (and kids).

There are hundreds to choose from and it’s a great way to spend a wet afternoon – as let’s face it it won’t always be sunny! Send us photos of your completed masterpieces – we’d love to see them.  We might even share the one we’re doing! https://victoriasmoon.uk/

We’re Still Here – Gallery Update

These are indeed strange times for us all and although we’re slowly adjusting to not seeing our lovely customers, we’ve been thinking of you and hope you’re safe and well. This week we’ve eased into a better routine of work and home life – enjoying walks with Rosie (no more than an hour!) and catching up on overdue jobs.

We’ve mentioned previously that we’re working behind the scenes to enable you to buy our lovely jewellery, home accessories, sculptures etc on-line. If there’s something you wish you could buy on-line from us please let us know and we’ll see if we can make it happen. Drop us an email sandy@fizzgallery.co.uk

As soon as the new site is up and running we’ll let you know.

Art Direct to you

 

Many of our artists are also still working so we’ll be sending you regular updates on what’s new.

Check out www.fizzgallery.co.uk where you’ll find over 100 artists.  Whilst we are closed, we will do our best to deliver prints and paintings directly to you.  And look out for some special offers coming very soon, as well as info on how we’re going to support the NHS in their amazing work.

In the meantime, Fenella has been thinking about ways you can freshen up your home and bring an extra sense of calm in these difficult times.  Read on to find out how.

Keeping it Calm

Many of us have had to accommodate working from home recently, I know we have. Normally our sitting room is a relaxing space to chill out in. Little did we know it would one day have to be the gallery office as well!

Positioning our desk by the window allows us to enjoy a lovely view whilst we’re working. Could you move your desk to give you a lovely view?

Refreshing rooms is not only about moving furniture or accessories around, it can also be about changing where your paintings and pictures hang. Do you have paintings you’ve stopped noticing in the rush of daily life? Does the sitting room look great, but do you really see what is on the walls? Try swapping a few of the pieces around and you will be amazed at how you start noticing them again.

Adapting to sudden change in our lives and learning to accept that it’s okay to sit and enjoy a cup of tea and read a book, is something many of us have had to adjust to over the last few weeks. Whether working from home, finding jobs and hobbies to fill our days, or looking after our mental and physical health, all these are more enjoyable if our home is a relaxing space.

Now would be a brilliant time to make a few small changes that will improve the energy in our homes. Don’t be afraid to try moving furniture, art work and accessories around, you will be surprised how suddenly you can change the way a room feels. 

Other Small Changes we Can Make to Help us Through the Next Few Months:

1. When you go for a walk, allow yourself to enjoy the fresh air, notice the peace now there is no traffic, listen to the birds and notice the bees and butterflies as you wander along. In the words of the well-known saying ‘stop and smell the roses’.

2. Take time to have a bath with your favourite bath products, turn the lights off and just have candles to light the room, knowing you don’t have to be anywhere else other than soaking in the bath.

Watch out for these gorgeous bath products on our website soon.

3. Have the windows wide open for a couple of hours a day to refresh the air. And burn scented candles in the evening to help you relax.

4. If you have lamps in the home, make use of them for mood lighting in the evenings and turn main overhead lights off for a while.  This will create a sense of calm.

5. Adding a few plants to the home will bring plenty of benefits; they purify the air, boost mood, aid concentration, reduce stress, and are therapeutic (and cheaper than a therapist!)
