Do it your way.
Sometimes life stops you in your tracks. But sometimes it’s a handy way to look at the view while the lights are on red. To take a moment to see who you are listening to. Is it your own wisdom, the intuition you were born with or the mumblings of other voices ?. Everything weContinue reading “Do it your way.”
When I thought about how to neatly wrap up this year in vintage Christmas paper… I found that this memory quilt of a year was made up of precious stitches, invisibly binding each remnant in place to create its magical warmth.

Stalling at the moment of creative freedom is the hurdle of almost anyone who ever picks up a brush or a pencil. We imagine ourselves unable to do this massively hard thing which encompasses our genius inContinue reading “The Blank Page”
Fire in your belly..
Lat week my delightful handy man was telling me a story. For Christmas last year he had been given a tin of seeds. They were chilli seeds and he had never gardened before. But he grew them anyway, and regaled to me the tale of the compost, the splitting of seedlings and the abundance ofContinue reading “Fire in your belly..”
