My space is full. My head space that is. Full of ideas, lists, children, school, runny noses, Richo, bunnies, driving, parent/teacher interviews, dogs that desperately need a walk, Crazy Hair day, robots, medical emergencies, upcoming birthdays, dreams, garlic, meetings, packages, books & the quinces waiting patiently by the back door.
I think it's quite funny when I hear someone say they are bored. Wow, wouldn't that be different? I'm happy to say that although things are a tad hectic, my creative is chugging away nicely, with bunny orders coming in steadily. How exciting & satisfying! It was so lovely to receive all the positive & enthusiastic comments after last weeks Creative Space. Because I work alone, as many of us do, it's great to get that kind of support & interaction, it spurs me on to make more, do more, be more.
I found these little tiles at our local tip shop yesterday. Not sure what they will become but I'm thinking brooches perhaps. It's fun to find such treasures that are in no hurry for a new life, but happy to sit in a jar waiting for inspiration.
My space has been full too with my dear Rosie, who has knocked her front tooth badly. We are hoping to save this little toothy peg as it will be a couple of years at least until her new one appears. So it has been a tricky few days trying to keep her from skydiving of the couch, somersaulting, generally hurling herself about as she normally does. It's also been hard for her to eat. Anyway we are off to a specialist dentist in Melbourne. I'm scared about it, kind of like I was when Billy had his teeth issues last year. Anyway, it's not the end of the world, I realise that, but I'll be glad when it's over.
Meanwhile my lovely friend Phillippa has been setting up her Etsy shop.
Phillippa, who teaches at RMIT, also works at our school and is just about one of the nicest people you could meet, is also a very talented fabric designer & super star creator of wonderous things.
Look at her beautiful designs, I love them both. But wait...there's more!
Do pop over and have a look at her snazzy shop!
So my little petal pies, how are you today? Did you happen to see my flowers yesterday?
This is day two and they are still looking almost, unreal. They are the most amazing flowers & give me a little thrill whenever I glance over their way. Flowers, like music, have a way of transforming your mood, bringing something magical into your day, don't they? I just love to look into these endless layers of pink & white & purple/red, the shapes, the petals, the colours..so dreamy....they make my space feel fine. Hope yours is too, and for more spaces don't forget to pop over here xo
