A week off work and a chance to spend time with friends and family and visit some some very exciting new places.
On Tuesday I took a trip over to Itch Gallery in Oakham and saw some of the beautiful pieces of work they have on display.
Itch decribes itself as a dynamic and zesty new Gallery in the heart of the East Midlands.
They've teamed up with some of the most talented independent creators and makers from all over the UK and offer a refreshing change from the mass production of the high street to bring you a spine-tingling range of affordable contemporary art, innovative craft and fresh design.
It's a truelly inspirational gallery and well worth a visit if you're in the area. They're also on Facebook if you want to keep up to date on their goings on.
