Busy being creative...

I am ashamed to admit to myself how long it has been since my last blog post! I am in the middle of lots and lots of projects so will soon have some work to share with you:) In the mean time here is a photo I took this morning; may your day be magical...

My latest piece of doodling! I started with the idea that I wanted to draw a bird as I have never attempted this before and ended up with an entire rainbow of them! The text is an old chinese proverb, which I love very much.

Beautiful Bloggers

On a rather stormy and challenging day this week I found this award waiting for me, given by a most inspiring writer/artist/all round fantastic blogger friend Lis. Thank you so much Lis, for this award means a lot to me, I feel touched and honored that you judge my website to be beautiful, I have a huge respect for everything you write and create on your blog; you are a wise and wonderful lady :)

Over the past year a whole new world of inspiration has opened up for me since I discovered blogging. I absolutely love to sit down with a cup of tea to read the latest thoughts, experiences and projects of the amazing websites I follow. These blogs have enriched my life incredibly and contribute daily to the magical creative journey I find myself on. So here are fifteen blogs that I most look forward to sitting down to with my treasured cup of tea:

The requirements for accepting this award are as follows:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Pass this award along to 15 bloggers you've recently discovered and whom you think are fantastic!
3. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
Share seven (7) things about yourself.

Seven things about myself (I’ve tried to think of less obvious thoughts so that you may learn something new about me) :

1.I would love to time warp back to the twenties and immerse myself in the fashions, the music, the energy and the politics, the art, the literature; it all really fascinates me.
2. I am chasing the dream of turning my creativity into a flourishing business.
3. I could live as a hermit in a lighthouse and feel quite content.
4. I have conversations with my cats.
5. I am a bit of a secret murder mystery lover ( although moreso of the cosy mystery where all is well in the world despite the death involved!).
6. I have a bit of thing about stationary; some people might describe it as an addiction.
7. I have a cuddly toy tortoise, given to me when I was born, which still lives in my bedroom and travels with me for luck and that special care that only she( Mimi) can give. Thus, I am proud to say that a part of me will never grow up!
