The flu made a surprise appearance at our house, week before last, and we are still recovering. I think that covers that topic. My mum came for a visit, and that means working in the garden–because that's one of her... Continue reading

So here's the first quarter of 2012, finished. Yeow that's crazy, but anyway here we are at April. Got a fair amount of the heavy lifting things done in the first 3 months, or at least started and now onward... Continue reading

I am a notebook girl. I love a good notebook, and I carry one with me everywhere. One notebook (or journal) gets everything. I write. I sketch. I jot down ideas. I write down reminders and messages. I write notes... Continue reading

We all go through periods of getting intensely wrapped up in our work, in our goals, in our dreams. It's part of being human. It's part of being self-employed. It's also part of that little habit of putting work before... Continue reading

I've been painting just about everyday, and have several ideas for several series. I wake up with such a different kind of purpose when I'm painting. It's like purpose and joy. Pur-joy? Joy-pose? Yeah, no. Purpose and joy. 2 smallish... Continue reading

Turquoise has always had a way with my heart... so shimmery, ethereal, and somehow, mysteriously it remains so grounded and deep. Turquoise is the colour of one of my favourite stones, the mediterranean sea with the sun shining on it,... Continue reading

It's that time of year to gather the receipts and get going on the taxes. It's also that time of year when I get deeply into berating myself for not having kept up with the receipts and the spreadsheets every... Continue reading
