Day before the Eve

I am not big on Christmas, or Yule or Hannukah or Kwanza but would never deny anyone else their ritual or fun or festive joy.

I wonder if maybe it is because I work up until the last moment and put some much effort into fulfilling all the orders and almost forget to celebrate?

However this year I am very proud that I have managed to source almost all of my presents from clever artistic peeps (who will be revealed next year – spoilers!)

Also rather pleased that the orders have shipped and I am sat here typing with the fire burning.

Hope all of you folks are feeling fab and festive and raring to go! Travel safely in this horrid weather and much Purky love.

Blog Directions

Hello lovely people, how are you?

I am thinking on redirecting the blog or rather actually writing it more frequently.

What would you like to see more of? My stats show that most of my hits come for the tutorials. I enjoy writing them and sharing my knowledge so more of those?

I love sharing my photos with you also.

Things have been very dificult at the Purky Enclave as I have been made redundant but happily I am using the time constructively to create new beautiful things and explore other directions.

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine.

Much love

Otterly Delightful

I got followed on Twitter by a very charming Otter and popped across to look at his (or her) page.

How do you feel about otters?

I have now decided I want a pet otter and will make him or her a special water slide in the bathroom.

Check out Otter’s special toast making tutorial 🙂

Quick Catch up!

Hello everybody its almost been too busy to keep track of.

I have left Purky Towers and now live in the new Purky Enclave.

Phileous Mogg has recovered and is here alongside my new beau and I. Much happiness appears to be forthcoming.

I have started several new ventures and expanded upon elder ones.

There will be more details when I manage to compose myself properly.

However, the next event is my Magnificent Maker’s Market which is on Sunday and here is the poster 🙂

Much love and hope to see you all soon

The Dark and Curious Market

The Dark and Curious Market is a new venture.
Following the recent success of the Purky Parties I have created a new sister company to Purky Products – Purky Productions.
 It is my intention to bring exciting events to Wincanton and surrounding towns.
The first market event being both Dark and Curious!
I have assembled a crew of Tarot Readers, Reiki Healers, Jewellers, artisans, craftspeople and entertainers over the course of this year and brought them together for a different kind of market.
There is also free entertainment throughout the day! 
Come and join us at the Nog Inn Function room on October 28th why not treat yourself to Sunday lunch as well?
It is free entry and the doors open at 11am.

Arcane Encounters

You may be thinking to yourself, ‘What is an Arcane Encounter?’ well my friends.
Arcane Encounters is not a magic show, nor is it a demonstration of clairvoyant ability. This is something else.
It is an up close and personal voyage into the unknown. 
The techniques of a séance with the intrigue and excitement of a ghost hunt wrapped up in an evening of paranormal, interactive entertainment.
Audience members will have the opportunity to hold and experience objects with a haunted past, make contact with the spirits that are around them and even feel or see a ghost themselves!
There will be demonstrations of the various techniques used in a séance, including automatic writing, table turning and even the Ouija board itself!
Dare you approach the dark with your eyes open?
Come and join us at the Nog Inn Function room on October 27th
Tickets are £9.00 in advance from Purky Productions ( or £10.00 on the door.
If you spook easily, bring a group of your friends to hold your hand!
I am very much looking forward to seeing you there.
Captain Purky
(Please note this event is for adults only and will take place in candlelit surroundings.)
