Do you know that, I was never quite sure that we would get to our 100 families, BUT thanks to all of you wonderful Stourbridge people - oh and a couple of Wordsley ones too - we have hit our target.
Thank you so much for being part of this. We have had quite a few requests for us to continue and, yes we will still see those who want a PORTAL PORTRAIT done. Please feel free to send them to us. We've had quite a few people coming in late and don't want them to feel left out. So if you do know anyone who still wants it done then don't worry about sending them in our direction.
There has been something rather special about meeting a whole load of people we don't know, but who live in our town. I will say more on this in a different blog. It has been challenging at times, with the weather and the emotional ups and downs, staying the course - but then we always do what we say we're going to do, dealing with jumpy animals and kids that don't want to look at us and so on.
What a glorious adventure and you have all been a part of it. We could not have gone on this adventure without you. We've seen approximately 350 people over this period of time. I'm afraid we've not counted the number of dogs, cats, birds, tortoises - ok only 1 tortoise, lizards, chameleons, spiders, crickets and locusts that we've taken..... we have taken in excess of 20 000 photos of all of you and at the same time, been photographing our local town and area - we will share more of these shots on the walls of the Longlands Tavern.
We do have more photos of each of you that we will add to your galleries, at some point, but will let you know if we do so.
We will also keep you updated about the exhibition and will go and see Lovely Zoe and Joe soon, to firm up some dates for that.
If any of you have any questions or requests, then please do, just give us a shout on 07726953033 or on our email or the contact form on the website.
Lots of love Bridgit & Simon
