Where have I been?

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it’s been three years since I wrote a blog post! Where have I been? Well, to be honest, lots has happened in that time! I did a year at University; got married and had a baby!! Haha. So yes, I’ve been busy!

My little girl, Darcy, is eight and a half months now, so time for art is pretty limited, but it’s nice to squeeze in a little time for some crafty things. Plus, having a baby is a perfect excuse to tap into your imagination and make stuff!

I recently made this Santa plate for Darcy to leave out on Christmas Eve. I’m so pleased with it that I’m contemplating selling them. So watch this space for more info, if you are interested.

Mindfulness Art Journal Page

I recently completed a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course at work, which is what inspired this page.  Mindfulness is all about being present from moment to moment and helps you to gain a greater understanding about yourself through meditation practices.

The meditation helps you to tune in to your body and mind and gives you a shocking insight into your own head! It has made me realise how much I worry and how stressed I have been feeling and has enabled me to take steps to look after myself a little better.

The fairy in this acrylic painting was inspired by the wonderful artwork by Suzi Blu.

I’m moving in!

Well, the time has come to say goodbye to my old blog over on blogger and move into my new home here on WordPress!

Over the past year or so Google made so many changes that the blog was no longer fun because there wasn’t any flexibility to make it look good.

So here I am….I just need to get to grips with the functions on here!
