Sorry I went AWOL last weekend, well I didn’t really go missing, just ran out of time! Nothing new there then!
I’ve got some exciting news though.
I spend a bit (lot) of time searching for inspiration and uplifting ideas on the web and one of the sites I have frequently visited to find excellent quotes and motivation is “Tiny Buddha – Simple Wisdom for Complex Lives”. So I was surprised and delighted when Lori from that site contacted me about using some of my images, of course I said Yes! You can find them under the Fun and Inspiring section. It’s strange I get a lot of inspiration from other people but it never occurred to me that my art might be inspiring to others. Thank you Lori and thank you universe. Being included Tiny Buddha has made me very happy.
Today I had a meeting with a friend who runs a hostel for young homeless people in the town and I’ve agreed to run 4 short workshops with them making ‘matchbox momentos’. Of course I really don’t have time to take this on, but I’ll just have to squeeze it into my busy schedule some how! It’s going to be good. 🙂
Today was my last day at work until next Tuesday, that makes me happy too. I finally got up to date and cleared my inbox before I left this evening and everything was in order, that’s a really good feeling as sometimes it feels like I’ll never catch up.
For the next two days I will be working with my friends to set everything up for our Open Days in the cemetery on Saturday and Sunday. We will have exhibitions and lots of interesting historical stuff on display, I will be leading guided tours and taking part in a ‘Character Walk’ where I will dress up and tell the story of someone from the past. There is lots to do I just hope the sun shines and we get lots of visitors.
The page above is the back cover of my third Teesha Moore inspired journal. I found the Big Lips and the banana that I wanted to use and the rest of the page just came together. I decided that my quote should be about the big mouth so it says “If you did not see it with your own eyes and hear it with your own ears, don’t invent it with your small mind and share it with your Big Mouth”. It’s not exactly a positive quote but true nevertheless.
Have a great week and I’ll see you soon.
