For the last few days i have been finding it hard to get my ideas down on paper... my mind is whizzing with potential artworks, inspirations and thoughts but my hands are not co-operating. I am finding this a little unsettling and frustrating. I am putting this time down to 'changes in the weather' and trying to go with the flow... i am really enjoying small everyday details and moments of beauty...

also helping is writing lists, brainstorming words, ideas and objects, collections of images - the top image is made up of photographs of a gift from Marianne - i love the simplicity of the paper, beautiful text and the string it was bound in...

love list:
brown, tea, watercolour paper, nature finds, breezes, collage, neutrals, textures, shadows, quiet, reading, ink, watching films with my husband, pattern, photography, vintage wallpaper, post, good friends, magazines, typography, tidying up and throwing out, pink, journals, decoration, creating corners of our home, found papers, ceramics, my family, creative collaborations, chilled fruit, green, travel, pods, flea markets and their stories, layers, hands, documentation, turquoise...

What are your current loves?

    great pics! I too have loads of ideas but so very little time...Andrew is away for work this week (again!) so maybe I'll get more time to craft after my little ones are asleep!

    Great new photos (and your Hand banner too). I like the idea of your mind whizzing with artworks yet to made, brimming with ideas, and enjoying the simplicity of everyday things.
    Happy creating, grache xx

    Current loves: sunlight, mushrooms in the forest, the smell of the fresh quinces, yoga-classes, spiced tea, pumpkins, wandering, reading, concentration....

    your shadows are beautiful and I would be glad to have some...( current rain)
