Friday night and I'm loving....



this fantastic mug...an inspired and inspiring birthday pressie - thanks Jane... it's fab!

that 2 days being back at work has been good this week, after all the Christmassyness  it's soo nice to be back to 'normal'

that it's time to take down the decorations and lovingly wrap them and pack them back in boxes...tuck them up till next year

that husband mine has been at home today...so nice to think that the cats can stay in and tea is made to come home to...in theory...

that our local hairdresser from down the village has popped in...result 2 happy haircuts in no time at all...

that I was brave and went to a printer this morning to ask for prices for printing leaflets and business cards...who'd have thought it?! this time last year I had no idea what wonderful changes the year held for me...new job...new (warm) studio...new teaching workshops..new collaborating with fellow artists and friends which makes doing it all so much less scary....new arty way of being and doing... my life slowly moving in the right direction, suuported by husband mine, daughter and our many friends...

that my passion and talent for making and creating will be shared with others...and will earn me a living

that my love, knowledge and enthusiasm for contemporary art and craft is being utilised in a job...wow!

that for the first time in my life I am earning money doing what I love and believe I have an expertise in...

that I've been asked to go and talk to a local Springboard  group about what I do and how I got here...ooer mrs! the idea is to inspire other women...I say follow your heart...and dream dreams and be open to oppportunity...and see what happens! Everything is possible...thank you Universe!
