SEO in the modern day takes a lot more time to implement and see the results from.

Student Art at Home – The Best Student Artists and Where They Live

Whoah there student artists! It’s time to put you under the spotlight. We’re interviewing local student artists in the Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds areas to see what makes them tick, and what inspires them to do great artwork time after time. We’ll also find out about their student lifestyle, and what hobbies they do alongside their art.

Matt from Leeds Met

The best thing about being at Leeds is the social nightlife scene, which is probably the best in the entire UK. This provides so much inspiration for my personal art, which is based around student culture, and helps me unlock the door into the mindset of younger students who are trying to figure out who they are.

I really find painting in the morning to be my best time, often staying up into the early hours and then deciding the paint creates my best work! From 2am until 7am the calming effects of sleep seem to help me create my true masterpieces.

Sally from the University of Sheffield

Sally Anne, who lives at a house owned by Strawberry Student Homes in Sheffield, believes art at university can really help you relax.

It’s really a life saver for me. I love how I can just switch off for an hour and be really creative. It contrasts with my law degree really well, providing me with a proper amount of escapism, and I can even sell my artwork at the local crafts shop!

You can find art like Sally’s in Sheffield around the art shops in the area of the University of Sheffield below:

Holly from Manchester Met

I go to the art school in Manchester, and it’s really been a life changing experience for me during my 3 years here. Before I enrolled on the course, I was very casual about my art, and also very scared of letting other people see it in fear of judgement. But now after the first week introductions that were made I feel confident enough to share my personal art with friends and fellow students, and it’s really helped me to grow as an artist.

I’d recommend anyone thinking about doing art at University to stop worrying about the odds and simply go for it. It really will change your life for the better.

How Parents Can Help Children Pass the 11+ Test UK

This is the time of year where you may be worrying about your child entering their secondary school. For many parents around the UK, this will be a choice between a comprehensive and a grammar school, but to enter the latter you need to your child to pass the 11+ exam.

Here we will go over some revision tips to make sure your child performs at their best.

Start Revision Nice and Early

It’s so important, and this cannot be overstated, do not rush into this revision last minute. The 11 plus is a complicated exam for a young child (and for some adults!) and so you want to give adequate time for full absorption of the materials.

Don’t put too much pressure on your child, and allow them to discover all the topics involved in the exam at their own pace, whether that’s the CEM style of the GL style of examination, which is dependent on the area of your grammar school.

Identify Weak Spots and Practice Topics

For many children there will be a particular area where they struggle, so it’s important to get your child familiar with all topics early on to ensure you can identify these weak spots early and start doing extra practice on those subjects.

Some of the most common problem areas are:

But a full extensive list of topics should be consulted before starting your revision.

Use 11 Plus Practice Test Papers

One of the best ways that your child can get accustomed to the 11 plus exam is to take mock exams and practice papers at home. These help to familiarise them with the timings and layout of the test, meaning they will be fully prepared once they take their actual grammar school entrance exam.

If you need to download test papers then you can buy 11+ practice papers online as a pdf with answers at 11 Plus Leap, which can help you child perform really well.

Using a Tutor for the 11 Plus

As a last resort for a struggling child, or for peace of mind, a tutor can be a great way to ensure that your child passes their entrance exam. The development of the CEM style of test was supposed to make it more difficult to tutor for the 11 plus exam, and it did, however it is still possible and can make a big difference, as the experience of the tutor can pick up all of the key issues a child may be having with the paper.

January Melt of Art and Gardens

The snow was great while it lasted!  We had a big storm just after Christmas that kept snow on the ground, and accumulating, for a couple weeks.  At it’s height we probably had a foot and a half of snow, which makes for a cozy and festive holiday season.  I know it’s old-fashioned, but I can’t help myself: I have to put on Christmas music when there’s snowflakes falling.

But today marks the end of that season, for now.  It’s definitely a little liberating to walk around the whole yard, not just on the paths that I tediously carved out.  And I haven’t had to worry about the ducks’ water freezing over, a responsibility that was more like another part time job for a while.  Easy living these days now that the chickens have finally emerged from their coop and the ducks have left their hideaway under the porch.   We even covered up the windows in the duck hut with some wax produce boxes to keep out the snow—a perfect fit!

And now that the chickens are out and about, I thought I’d take the opportunity to photograph the (empty) nest boxes in our sweet coop.  I think our last chicken egg was a few weeks ago.

It’s a good set-up, if only the days would get longer, ha.  Our ladies have been ‘cooped up’ with not wanting to get snow on their feet for some reason, so today was a very special day all around.

The birds were feasting today!  And me too…I capitalized on the thawed ground to harvest some leeks.  A little beat up from the cold, but fresh nonetheless!

They still took some effort to pull, mostly because of those roots!  These leeks are just about one year old (to the day), so it makes since they’re thinking themselves rather permanent.

And it’s rather fitting, since the first leeks of 2013 germinated today.  I’ve got the shop lights set up in the bedroom this year (perfect!  Simply turn them on when I wake up, shut them off when it’s time for bed).  Not much room right now, but I’ve got no more seeding til February, whereupon it’s time for the leeks to move to natural light anyway.  So for now, look at their first moments above ground…you can barely see them:

It’s so exciting.  I’ll have to get into time-lapse photography at some point.  :)

I’ve also been cultivating springtime in the home by forcing bulbs.  In the basement I’ve got pots of Montreaux tulips and Thalia narcissus that are just about to finish their chilling requirement.  In the meantime the paperwhites have been putting on a heady display.  I’m a big fan.

And meanwhile, back outdoors, the mache is prime for the harvest:

The best on burgers.  Have I mentioned that?!  Really any sandwich that calls for greens needs mache.  We’re lucky it’s cold out!  Chervil is another plant that loves the cold weather (a winter harvest can be prolific!).  It hugs the ground for a few months but stays green and harvestable, and in spring it goes to flower in a beautiful way.  Some people say it’s difficult to grow, but only if you’re trying to grow it in full sun in the summer. I love chervil’s pretty fern-like foliage in the garden (it’s in the carrot family), and it adds a delicate licorice flavor when finishing stews, especially a beef shank braised with rosemary and thyme, although you’d want to add those two earlier.   Yum!

That’s the garden in January…a suprising amount of activity!  I’ll leave off with a picture of one of our oldest sugar maple trees, the one that had the most damage with last spring’s late snowstorm.  It’s been in my thoughts as these 50-degree January days linger.  We don’t tap this one in particular, but it seems like maple season is already upon us. Hey, I’ll take the sap as long as it runs, but keep those leaves tight in bud til May!

Snow and Seeding Spring Planting Art and Flowers

Well February has arrived, and I must say we are still deep in Winter.  It’s cozy to be inside next to the fire, but it’s around now when I can’t wait to get out in the garden.

But we did have a brief respite.  We had just picked up the Nearings’s The Maple Sugar Book in preparation for the upcoming maple season, when we realized we were about to embark on a couple freakish days in the high 50′s …following a few weeks of highs in the single digits.  Everything was frozen SOLID.  Would the sap even run?  And if it did thaw enough to run would it just stop after the temperature climbed too high?  We found out the good way!

We tapped our trees in the morning of the 30th and the sap was already running, and fast. It was about 40 degrees out.  It grew warmer and warmer on into the night, until it peaked at 60 degrees the following afternoon.  We checked our buckets…sap couldn’t have run all night, right?

Wrong!  It was still running.  From our 7 trees we got around 17 gallons of sap over those two days, which boiled down to just under a half gallon of sweet grade A syrup.

Of course I can’t help but get another angle on these beauties:

Ahhh.  Our teeth will rot out in the best way possible. :)

Inside, I moved the leek seedlings to a cooler room with natural light, as they seemed to already outgrow the shop light set-up in the bedroom.  I might do a little thinning before they go into the coldframe, but maybe not.

And I sowed the first of my February seeds under the now-vacant lights: Reine des Glaces lettuce, flat parsley, broadleaf sage, and German thyme.  Hopefully they’ll germinate just as readily as the leeks.

I wanted to share a close-up of some of my favorite seed houses.  Fedco Seeds,, in Maine is a co-operative stemming from the ’70s.  Not only are their catalogs informative, entertaining, and inspiring, but their seeds rock.  And their prices.  I want to stay regional with my seed sources, but every year Nichols Garden Nursery,, out in Oregon wins me over.  I can’t help myself.  They have the best varieties and wonderful prices, all in appropriate packet sizes for the home gardener.  And their seeds rock too.  And last but not least is Seed Savers Exchange from Iowa,, also not regional but still awesome.  Although their prices are higher, this organization is definitely worth supporting.  I got several packets during an end-of-year sale, and I hope to become a member of the Flower and Herb Exchange when I have some extra dollars.  I tend to think a little doomsday about our fading national seed supply, and I am grateful to these seed houses for refusing GMOs and working tirelessly to preserve heirloom varieties.   The possibilities will once again be endless!

The longer days are serving our houseplants well, too.  I’m newly obsessed with two orchids that I’ve chronically neglected.  One of them already has new leaves forming!

In another windowsill are the bulbs I’ve been forcing indoors this winter.  In the big pot are Montreaux tulips, and in the small one Thalia narcissus.  Hopefully they’ll flower before their outdoor counterparts, but even the vegetative growth is enough to add a little springtime to these cold days.

Hope you are staying warm!  March is just a short month away!
