Lately I have been feeling somewhat lost..a lack of flow.. a need for space...Its mainly from having little/no spare time since i started working. My energy levels have been a little low and this week i had two days off to recharge the old batteries!!! On Monday, Rami and I went for breakfast together to our favourite place 'The Brasserie' in Tel Aviv. We enjoyed a quiet morning to ourselves which included a trip to the art shop for some new inks...



And we began our big tidy up starting in the storeroom - it feels so good to get rid of unused stuff - things that once made us happy and with time we grow out of them... we still have my 'studio' to sort out but a good start was made.

Yesterday, i had the whole day to myself - time to put the music up loud, spread out on the floor and work on my new collages *beam*...

So if i have been a little distant recently or owe emails or letters or love, im sorry and should be back on course very soon :)

Next week my ceramics class begins which im so looking forward to and we also have Shellys birthday party to organise for 30+ five year olds, aaahh!!!! (thank you for all the wishes)


And before signing off today - a beautiful observation from the everyday :) xxx

    So lovely to see you had time to recharge, sounds like a much needed break. The Brasserie looks wonderful, I'm already feeling hungry... loving the beginnings of your collage and lovely observation of the everyday. Hope you have time to be more creative with the de-cluttering and fresh inspiration. Have fun with Shelly's party (30+ five year-olds? goodness!)

    I have always loved those little ink bottles. I often buy them even though I rarely use them. I just love to look at them.
    Here's to a week ahead, more everyday observations, Birthday parties most splendid, and a bit of time to yourself.
    take care, g xo
