Im not sure if anyone noticed but i just took my biggest break from posting...we had a fantastic time camping (apart from the heat!) great friends, good food, an inflatable mattress and a great 4th birthday celebration for Shelly.. i cant wait for the next trip!!

Although ive been taking a 'time out' to recharge the old batteries, I have some love links from my web travels...
i love the discussion going on over at Shari's about inspiration...
i love the work of this artist
i love Camilla's new calendar (which reminds me that i have to get on and start mine for the calendar swap!!)
i love Marieke's recent line drawings over her collages
i love the 'herb' bag from this shop

I was so fired up by my visit to the flea market last week...i decided to make a collection to exhibit somewhere... so im in the middle of creating...

We are in the middle of holiday season here and have another holiday coming up on Friday - Sukkot - here is a drawing Shelly did of the sukkah from above!!! i love it!

happy wednesday!!

    So happy that you enjoyed your camping trip... but so happy that you are back :)
    I also love the discussion over at Shari's. Unfortunately not the right time for me as I'm not inspired at all with everything nearly packed and a whole lot of annoying things going on over here I feel frustrated that I don't seem to be able to just enjoy and feel inspired... nevertheless I felt inspired once again by Shelly's drawings.

    Since I seem to be on a permanent break, more or less... you were gone and back in the blink of an eye! But nice to know you had a wonderful time, Julie.
    I keep my fingers crossed for your exhibition!

    It sounds lovely, Julie! Camping - haven't done it in quite a while. We're heaving into fall already: rain, cold... Happy B-day for the little artist!

    You are brave getting in that tent. Sounds like a great time though. I do love Shelly's art work always so cheery.
