I've been absent from Blogland since April, processing big emotions from past events, and working out how to move on and grow.
I haven't produced much arty stuff lately, but here is something I've been working on. It's a small cutlery box for silver teaspoons. It's not glued down yet. I've just been playing. I found the dried flowers in one of my old books.
What is it about babies? I love them. I think it's because giving birth and breastfeeding have been healing experiences for me, a time when I felt I had no skin between me and the rest of the world. And butterfly wings represent freedom for me, as well as just being so beautiful...I've been doing a lot of reflecting lately.
This heart was for my mum for Mothers' Day way back in May. I made it from old doylies. The pocket was for holding something sweet and precious. She loved it.
This owl was something I left on the beach after a morning walk.
Now, I have a special invitation for the dear friends I've made who have visited my blog and left friendly comments. I've done another blogpost here about my journey over the past months, and I invite you to take a walk with me into our dry schlerophyll forest, listening to the birdsong. It is a very green and leafy post.
On July 15th I will be participating in Karen Valentine's 8th Annual Blog Party, 'Where Bloggers Create 2016' .
You can find out more about it here. There will be many drool-worthy craft spaces on display. The past years' links have been gorgeous. I've been working on a post about my craft space, and I'm looking forward to sharing that with you all.
I'm linking with Wen's Simply Neutrals Party # 26 here. Check out all the neutral toned loveliness on display via her linky party.
Have a wonderful Summer break - while I'll be celebrating our Winter Solstice here in Australia soon.
