Day Dreams ............................



“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” 
This saying is so true....I am working on a shop order of charms today and it really is a bit of a task as I am dreaming of so many new things I want to do..... I want my product to truly reflect me again as so much has changed over the last couple of years...I think I have lost that a little and I also don't want to feel like I am just creating without passion and love and especially heart.... My mind is definitely somewhere else at the moment ...It is with my little family, in our little cottage, so much excitement and the pulling of my heart strings as each day becomes even more precious.... Over the next 18 months my daughter will get married, my son will start and finish his last year of school and get prepared to leave home to go to uni...another wonderful european adventure to celebrate his 12 years at school.... oh my and the list goes on.... but as you can imagine having some income from my little business at the moment is extremely important so I am trying to regroup and remember the things that I always love in life to inspire me to be creative... Reading beautiful quotes always helps..... Hope everyone is having a lovely week .......
“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.”

I now the feeling of being preoccupied when you do the things you love doing. At the moment I don't work at all a break is well needed but I will have so much enery and creativity when I get back in to it. Right now I only look after the baby and gardening.

A lot of love from Sweden
