We've had 3 days of sunshine and 3 days stuck inside while the house is taken over by plumbers. I won't show you the ugly tanks and boiler currently sitting in our garden so here are a few blooms that are still hanging on in the over run borders. Autumn is already in the air along with the promise of new adventures and a new focus. I am itching to get started but need to get the workmen out of the way, spend a week with my children doing the things we haven't been able to do all holiday and spring clean the house for one last time!

The walls have been stripped, filled, sanded and painted, the nasty carpet pulled up and replaced with clean, new wooden flooring we had left over from our last place (and to think we nearly threw it out when we moved!) and my little studio has a new lease of life. It will be a while before the proper workspace/furniture is in but with bits and bobs swapped over from other rooms in the house I am happy to make do for a while. Already feels a lot better. It's amazing what a lick of paint can do.

Found these whilst unpacking boxes into my newly painted studio, left over from the last craft fair. They are lined notebooks I have recovered with photoprints of some of my artwork and are now in my shop. I may do more at some point but these are the only 3 left for the moment so grab em quick!

A beautiful day with my beautiful children.
I'm feeling at the moment like there is so much going on yet I have very little to say. I think my head needs a bit of space to digest all the thoughts and ideas and life stuff that is floating round and hopefully it will turn it all into something credible. So forgive my quietness, I will be back.
