I did a lot of procrastinating in the weekend. I cleaned profusely, watched TV and played outside with the girls - then I finally made it to the studio and started playing around with different materials thinking about recycling and repurposing. I have a real dislike for plastic bags and often think about re-using them. Fusing the bags make a strong sturdy and interesting fabric like material. 

And...I Love playing with vintage beads.

Enjoy your day!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I had a busy one playing around with different ideas and drawings...I know the photos are a pretty crappy.

Have a great day!

I've been working on cushions to sell in the shop. I think they turned out really cute - the girls road tested a couple and seem pretty chuffed but they might be biased...

If you asked me what I had been doing, I would probably say "everything but nothing" if that makes any sense. Last week my days were full of two sick children, work and general un-inspiring duties like cooking, cleaning and paperwork but in all the trying moments smiles of love, kisses of gratitude really put life in to perspective.

It has been a week since my last post and it seems like a life time. I'm really struggling with finding things to blog about. I hold so much respect for all those fantastic bloggers out there that post 5, 6 times a week there is a lot of work and thought involved in coming up with daily posts and I'm not sure if I am up to it.

Surfing the net for great finds is really time consuming with a young family and I've decided that type of blog is not for me so I'm going to post once or twice a week probably Monday and Thursday hopefully this will keep my blog and me fresh and interesting.

Have a great Monday!

Recycling a Baby Blanket

I spent the weekend recycling old baby blankets with my girls, they designed and helped sew their dolls together, they are very interesting looking dolls, Miss M decided she didn't want any eyes on hers just sunglasses. I think they turned out different and cute! 

A few paintings I did in the weekend...what did you get up to?
