my creative space




{***i know i promised no more dark photos, however . . . the middle pic explains things}

so pleased to be at my desk after 5 days of looking after the kids on my own this week! my father-in-law died last week and my husband took off up north. it took me most of this morning {the first day off} to be able to focus/speak etc . . . it hasn't been a pretty picture!

anyhooo, i slipped into another world making this collage. the bottom pic shows the almost finished version. it's actually finished, but the sky seems just too bleak to capture any detail for now! will try again soon.

hope you are having a fun time in your space! pop over to kootoyoo for more spaces :)

It looks divine Belinda - I find it very cathartic and relaxing doing collage... particularly after trying times with little ones ;) I think it's that process of micro-organising a little world. Sorry about your father-in-law - take good care. Kx

I love all your photos - the sky in the middle photo is quite soothing, and I love the composition - your collage looks fabulous by the way! I'm really sorry to hear about your father in law... big hugs from all the way over here. :) Take it easy, kisses, and hugs, xo from both Jason and myself. K.

I am so sorry Belinda. There is something beautiful in creating something new when reminiscing and loving something that is lost. Hugs to you and your family. xoxo

So sorry for your loss!

I love the new collage, especially where you used the hole punch to create some textured/patterned paper. I'd forgotten how much I used to love punching out holes in paper to create patterns when I was a kid.

Sorry to hear about your FIL. Glad you survived the single mom bit--not easy, I know from experience!
