Hi – wanted to write something on here tonight (as it’s been a while…), to add a few pics I’ve taken and drawn. BUT – I made the choice to say ‘yes’ install Windows 10.
Mistake. So far. I can’t find anything I’ve previously used and it’s all, very, different… Damn.
So, cancel my mindful, creative input this evening and replace with annoying technology problems. No fun. Not fair.
8 steps from shore will be appearing at a local Beachcraft Fair, Seaham Masonic Hall, 11-3pm, Saturday 1st August 2015.
All welcome. Beautiful local crafts inspired by our wonderful coastline, pop along, it’s FREE!
Several of the Seaglass pieces featured on this site will be for sale.
Beachy Bunting: Air Dry Clay
Again, I return to my love of these colour’s. Something just fits/works/pleases my eye when I find this colour. Then again, it’s not just one colour, there are so many variations out there.
This colour also seems to ‘pop’ when placed on a background of dark wood or driftwood, it just encourages the colour to be its best.
As I’ve a rekindled love of walking (with pup), I see so many things, I’ve opened up to so many views and senses. My senses feel nurtured by the beautiful simplicity of open space.
I hope I always return to this colour, despite how it may dip in and out of design/fashion – I always feels close to me when this colour sneaks into my day.
A bit of a weird concept – if you don’t plan, it will go wrong (not all the time, random and chance are key in opportunity too). ‘Prepare to Fail’ – well isn’t this a big kick in the shins kind of phrasing?! Pah. Learning to go: ‘Ok, I’m knackered, I need to pause, stand back and have a think about stuff’, is surely more motivating and realistic, not to mention better for your wellbeing. It’s hard to do though, you have to get there, to that stage of going: ‘alright, I get it, I need to reroute’.
Sometimes getting back to your old self is a nice way to see where you want to go, who you want and need to be and how you need to live.
Although I’m finding many ways to connect, relax and engage in a state of ‘Flow’, it has to be said, walking with pup is the best. The blast of fresh air, seeing new plants on the go, loving the open land and scenery. But right now, I’m shattered and best place is BED! zzzz

Started a Macrame plant holder this eve, well – morphed my mustard wool crochet thingy wingy, into a shape, to hopefully house a small (succulant?) plant. There is inspiration everywhere, especially colours to use, but I’m not always/often to seeing it, the ‘inspiration’.

I’ve randomly been awake and up since 5am-ish this morning and very active with it – needless to say, at near 1am – I’m shattered………… Over and out.
