Painting, collage, sculpting, felting and creating with found objects are all passions of mine. Creativeness is like breathing to me, it nurtures my soul and gives me endless hours of joy.

Inspired by Sophie Munns recent post, I finally tackled my studio, tidying, decluttering, sorting, discarding and making a more conducive working space. Sophie's mention of a wonderful view from her room while working at her desk inspired me to re-arrange my studio so I too looked outside.
Its going to take a little getting used to but the action of tidying up and clearing out has started to have the desired effect. After I was finished yesterday my mind was clearer, although no new ideas were immediately forthcoming. I wondered when the ideas might come and decided to work out in the garden for a while and mow the grass (with a lot of help from Millie).
Today is a different story, ideas started to tickle around the edges of my mind, and then more and more came.......sometimes just by taking the first step and tackling the most mundane chores, a little bit of magic happens........
Like everyone, I have my moments of doubt in relation to my art and abilities, etc, however Candice Herne recently gave me this gorgeous teatowel by Nadine Sawyer, which I have pinned to my wall to remind me everyday that I am following the beauty of my dreams! Trusting you all are too :)
