shopping for me again!

the words that i love to hear: 'why don't you see if there's something on etsy that you'd like'! it's hard not to be materialistic when i'm on etsy so often . . . so it's easy to find great things.

i'm turning 40 on the weekend~ which i'm ok with! i was thingy about it a few months ago when i hit the age of outliving my mum. but getting past that makes feeling funny about getting older seem frivolous. it's definitely worth celebrating.

happy friday too :)

loving the playful/romantic sense of freedom in these pieces.

listening to: random noises coming from the kids' room {past 9pm and they should be asleep} + fireworks?? + julia stone {her sound reminds me of a handful of others . . . . but it's growing on me} . . .

happy about: friday!

my creative space ~ re connecting

our phone and internet was disconnected this week . . . you can imagine the disarray! it's a particular kind of disconnected, hands tied behind the back kind of feeling. we've got a temporary solution {no phone} and it's going to be 1000 times better when it's all fixed up, sometime soon. i can see how a break from the internet can be healthy, but only when if/you're ready for it!

. . . mr 3 and i went out in the rain to take garden photos and i put some stitching detail into the almost finished work in the top photo.

hope you're having an inspiring week! pop into kirsty's for more spaces :)

ps thanks so much for all the encouragement re the fabric idea ~ can't wait to start on it xx

:: james town

it is saturday, night . . . fridays seem to be getting busier . . .
hope you like sarah's work ~ i think her drawings are amazing and i love her colours.


i was looking at this dream workshop/camp last week and my mind started racing ~ how great would it be! for a couple of hours i started trying to figure out a way to get my family and myself to sweden!! hmmm.

this great article on creative burnout made it to the storque yesterday. it's written by lee wolfe, a very savvy and creative artisan gallery team member. it includes some thoughts on the topic from some team mates, including me! {thanks lee}

also, thanks to jan for including one of my new prints here.

happy weekend :)

my creative space

i chose a space in a favourite cafe this morning to clear my head after the school/kinder drop off.

the woman sitting next to me leaned over and asked: 'what are you doing? are you designing fabric?' then she said she liked it!

so there it is. that's the other thing i want to be doing!

happy creative space day :)
