The boys and I take many walks along this stretch, and I know I don’t really take it all in every time we go strolling. Isn’t it hard to fully appreciate the place where you live and breathe, and have existed for 98% of your life (the other 2% includes lots of holidays but never actually living anywhere else). But taking a few shots sometimes can help to see it differently, and realise it’s pretty beautiful. And it is what you make of it. I believe anywhere you live, you can end up not seeing what it has to offer if you don’t take the time. I admit, I am a smell-the-roses kind of a person, but I have to say that smelling local roses can be just as memorable as heading to the other side of the world to do so!!

.old school. April 6, 2011
I have been playing around with lots of different things recently and found some old school techniques that I was using a few years ago…this is one of my old favourites, and one of the reasons I like it is that you don’t have to have anything that fancy to create it. The sky is an offcut from a photo I had to cut to size to fit in a frame. The grass is a piece of cardboard that I snipped. The baby clothes on the line are cut using a decorative punch but you could easily cut some simple little garments by hand. The clothes line is some super-bendy jewellery-making wire and the wording is actually computer font as it was before I had started my stamp collection.
I sometimes like to set aside all the fancy tools and pre-made embellishments and make something from scratch or out of offcuts and scraps. Not everyone’s thing, but it gets me thinking a bit more creatively…and then I appreciate even more the tools and embellishments when I come back to them.
.love something. March 28, 2010
I found a great site which is completely dedicated toimages of things that people love. It’s called We Heart It.
I couldn’t help including a few love-inspired pics here for a little inspiration, because in my opinion, you can never get enough romance, and you don’t find many things more inspiring that love…
