Don’t Worry Be Happy – Friday

Music I’m listening to Loreena Mckennitt – Mummer’s Dance listen HERE

I received my first Christmas present today and as my dear friend was flying back to Spain we exchanged presents in a beautiful little tea room that she discovered.  I was blown away, she really ‘gets me’ well we have known each other for 25 years.  First of all this is what I got her.  For the past few years I have always given her a hand crafted present, a Blurb book of photographs and quotes. But this year I made her a canvas to put on her bedroom wall.

As you can see I used Kim’s most gorgeous vines and hearts I so love using them. the quote was from Jon Kabat Zinn somebody we both love.  She gave me the most wonderful book .

Oh it is going to sit by my side.  Here is a quote.

Time of solitude-

Time to reflect on friendship.

Both a necessity:

Solitude to find one’s self

Friendship to find one’s self.

If you have a special someone a good friend I so recommend this beautiful book.

Do you like my pretty measuring spoons ? A find in TK Maxx.

Finally a bit of digital art.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends. We pick Jo up on Tuesday I’m so excited…..

Friday a Rediscovery

Photography Blog

What I’m listening to  Natalie Merchant – House Carpenter’s Daughter

As the autumn moves into winter the urge to cuddle up with a cuppa and a book seems more attractive than getting blown apart and rained on. So on days when photography is not possible I hope to pull out some of my books and rediscover and learn. The little books are altered books that I created years ago when I was part of a Yahoo group. We would create some pages and then pass it on to the next one in the group. Finally your book would land on your mat full of beautiful art from people all over the world.

I hope to return to some form of hands on art over the winter even if it is just some background pages for scrapping.
