A big few weeks - sigh!!!!!!!



Well I have had the flu for a couple of weeks and I so hope it is finally rounding the corner and I can enjoy the school break with my beautiful kids.....These photos are little clippings of my studio room, my little place in the world .....So many things happening at the moment...Finally booked our trip to europe which is beyond exciting...My beautiful family property (owned with my 4 siblings, my gorgeous parents left it to us) is on the market and it makes my heart very sad but it is just one of those things that needs to be done.... As a mum my heart strings are playing because my little girl is into her last 7 weeks of school...She is so ready for a new adventure but at the same time it is all just flying by too fast and my little boy turns 14 tomorrow...He is my little confidant, my amazing cook, has the best cuddles in the world and he is growing into such a lovely young man :)
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

Joy is not in things; it is in us.

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.

My daughter - her art!!!!!!!!








Well Kirstie is in her last 10 weeks of school..Quiet unbelievable really!!!!! As we speak she is sitting the second day of the biggest exam of her school life!!! So I just thought I would share something that I think is just beautiful of her final art work...The subject is personal......The title generation....The top image is of kirstie is a little petticoat that I wore when I was about 5 that my mum made for me and these are the words she wrote on it ......you are my universe, my shining light my blue butterfly flying through the sky, my romeo my millions of words with beautiful covers and my every breath. When I think of you my mind wonders to the delicate wings of a butterfly. When I think of you my mind wonders to my one and only confidant that is always there. You are the smell of freshly made bread, you are the star that kisses the moon, you are each stitch of a dress and you are the flowers that sway in the breeze. When I think of you I think of the beautiful sky above. When I think of you I know I'm home............ She has used the dress that my mum made me for my wedding and the butterflies are a symbol of us all......I hope you like it :)
