You know what’s a little embarrassing? Returning to the online world to say ‘hello, here I am’ … and then not really being here … oops! I’m very, very slowly catching up on everything I’ve missed in recent weeks, so my apologies if I haven’t returned properly to your world yet … I’ll be there soon with virtual chocolates and coffee in hand! Hopefully I’ll get this time management situation sorted soon … until then, thanks for sticking around.
Apart from giving me the opportunity to build my own little world, my blog has also introduced me to some truly wonderful people. The kind of people I would happily call friends. While I don’t always remember who stumbled into whose world first, I feel very fortunate to have made the introduction to these lovely humans. One such person is the talented Christine Clemmensen who writes a lovely blog and creates delightful artistic treasures. She also knows how to host a mean giveaway … just look at all of these goodies that recently came my way …
Not only did I receive a copy of the book Christine co-authored, ‘Scraps: an inspirational field guide to collage’, I also received an incredible selection of treats to kickstart some collage creations of my own … thanks so much Christine, you sure know how to spoil a girl!! … and look, my lovely parcel even received the Jones seal of approval (and we all know how hard it can be to please our fussy pets).
How fortunate the timing of this postal arrival is given that I recently bought myself an ‘old paper pack’ by Applehead (from Georgie Love), a sampling of which is shown below. I can see myself while away many a happy hour creating and collaging with this collection … oh what fun!
It’s wonderful when the universe provides the inspiration, the tools and the raw materials to create art all at the same time … surely that is evidence of synchronicity in action?
Here’s hoping that this week I find a bit more balance in my life, work and play. I’m figuring perhaps it’s one of those times to apply a ‘Field of Dreams’ style mantra – ‘If I say it, it will happen’. Anyway enough about me, what’s been happening in your world? Perhaps something wonderful has recently come into your life too?
