I feel like I have been away from my blog for too long. I have needed to allow a little more time for family and home so my blog was the thing to go BUT I want to add things so that I can look back and see where I am at.
I have been getting inspiration from lots of places. I have beeen trying to broaden my creative vision by looking at different ways to express myself. I have been trying to mix my art with words and thoughts.....visual journalling.
This book really inspired me and the authors have a great website.
One really fun thing is I have got a little red leather book and a black pen and have started drawing my thoughts down in a mixture of pictures and words. Some things are funny others sad but it gives me a quick artisitic release each day.
My new project is designing a woodland story telling set for a Easter Kids Zone at church. Here is what I am being inspired by so far....
Found this cute idea on a web site while re
searching set design.
and read this fun idea there

I am in the process of thinking of my goals for this year, which is really fun. I want to make them achievable which is also a challenge.
What are your *new year* goals?
This year for me has started with sad news from various friends of mine and with all the economical doom and gloom and all my fav shops closing (how could they!!!) I was feeling a bit sad and it is only the 5th!!
Heard this great song *Soak up the Sun* today by Sheryl Crow (album £2.50 in Woolworths closing down sale...some good things)
It has this line in it which says :
It's not having what you want It's wanting what you've got
Dont you think that is so true. We need to be thankful for all the things we have and learn to pay attention to all the good things in our lives instead of worrying about what we dont have or what might happen.
So this week enjoy what you have and be thankful for it.

I had a string of bad school photos this year. Lucia's was the only nice one so I was delighted with these!
Yes Christmas is not far away!!!
I am doing an online craft class with the lovely Elsie as part of my birthday present. I know I can hear you say you are too busy. I have found that over the last few months I have craved some creativity. This class is lots of little projects which take very little time, so I can be creative on a tight time schedule.
I am going on a saturday crop to Burfield and taking my shop. I have quite a lot of new things so I post them up soon. If you like something then send me a message and I will arrange to post it to you.
