winds of change

So things have been super quiet on the blog lately…. It’s been five months since I blogged last (oh the blogging shame of it!!). In fact over the past two years I have really struggled to keep up with the prolific blogging of my previous blog. Looking back at the time I was really into […]

winter blues are fading

Hello there dear blog readers (although I bet there aren’t many of you left as it’s been so long). It’s lovely to be back in blogland again, after such a long absence, last time I posted was before Christmas 2015. I had planned at the end of last year to blog once a month throughout […]

Landscapes – then and now

Landscapes – then and now

As well as looking back over the previous twelve months of creativity (or not as the case has often been) I have also been reading through my Unearth Gather Create journal and reflecting on the whole process of this amazing ecourse. Having read my initial angsty ramblings I realise what I hard time I give […]

my word for the year

my word for the year

When it gets to this time of year I often look back over the previous twelve months and assess what I’ve achieved with my business, whether I have achieved what I want to, looking at how successful my various selling events have been, whether I got into the shows I had applied to, what I […]

Autumn has always been one of […]

coming back to life

A few people have asked me recently whether I’ve given up blogging. My answer was No, I haven’t given up, I just haven’t had anything very much or very interesting to say to you all. Like everything else creative it seems blogging is also a cyclical process for me, sometimes the thoughts and words come […]

enjoying the journey…

enjoying the journey…

I’ve been a bit quiet lately, that’s because I haven’t been spending much time in the studio and therefore haven’t really had much to tell you. When I gave up my job last year the idea was to spend three days a week in the studio and work two days at my new ‘temporary’ job. […]

morning walk

I’m getting into the habit of taking my phone out with me to capture images on my morning walk most days and recording them on Instagram. Today I knew my phone battery wouldn’t hold out so I grabbed my camera as it was a bright beautiful frosty morning - here are some of the images I took. I don’t […]

sustenance/sustain-ance

sustenance/sustain-ance

my word for the year, the meaning of which this week was questioned by my dear husband – his understanding of it was food or drink when the reason I had chosen it was for its other meaning – the ability to sustain something, in particular the forward motion of my creative and business. This […]
