Spring clean

Well its been a week and i have almost sorted out my studio, i have also been getting my house ready for a makeover, working in the bar and teaching at a school if you were wondering why it has taken me so long!

All i need to do know is transport all of my making supplies i have stashed in my house over to my studio, this may take a while as  i have no transport of my own, so will have to carry a few things at a time on the train and along the 20 minute walk up a hill to the school where im based.

I am going to make a promise to you and to myself that i will have some pictures of my lovely studio to show you next week and possibly a few new things iv made too! :)

Productivity in february is definately on the rise.

Its funny....

....where inspiration finds us. With January proving seldom inspiring i have been waiting for that moment, the moment when inspiration comes unexpectedly and fills you up excitement and enthusiasm. Today was finally the day! It wasn't inspiration for an idea or project as such but just for motivating me to get moving with my creative goals, to tackle the TO DO list which has been growing rapidly since Christmas.

What was it that finally inspired me?

It was simply an early morning dash to Greggs to buy my lunch before school, where i help teach creative things on a Thursday! I was waiting for my tuna crunch sandwich and latte when as i was eyeing up the yumyums i saw the cutest little cake with a red plastic heart shaped finger ring stuck into the icing on top, all of a sudden... whooosh... i felt great, i couldn't wait to get to my studio and start sorting it out so i can make things again!

Seems strange that such a silly thing can make your day, i feel like iv woken up and am seeing everything fresh and new again and filled with things to inspire me and make me happy! This is my 2012 starting right here! Goodbye January and good riddance!
