This is me at the moment. This photo was taken when I was 33 weeks pregnant. At the moment I am 38 weeks. This bump has given me so much inspiration to get back into being as creative as I could possibly be. When I found out I was having a baby my family and some close friends were the only ones to know until I was 3 months. My cousin bought me a book called Sustainable Baby by Debbie Hodgson. It is such a good read for mum's to be who want to 'consume less and live better.' I was really inspired by this book to make and create things for my baby. I started off by finding a free pattern on the internet to make my own cloth nappies. Oh they were such a delight to make.... I ended up making 14 of them. So my baby is going have the cutest bum ever. I received a cot wool duvet inner with no cover.... So I decided to make a duvet cover. I couldn't help myself. I started thinking of decorating the room with little things that I made starting with the curtains. That was easy because I work at a fabric, crafty shop that has all the supplies that I could possibly need. I customized the curtains by adding buttons all along the bottom. Hard work, but a lot of fun. I'm sure baby will appreciate it. It can always be changed at a later stage. I'll enjoy choosing what I want for the room while I have the chance. I painted little wall hangings using embroidery rings to display it, tied with a ribbon(I hung them on the inside of the cot for now). And the last piece that I have made is a painting of me holding my belly with a verse saying, "Every good and perfect gift comes from above..." James 1:17 I am looking forward to the little one's arrival. I will keep you posted.
I love this image... once again a found image. It just has a peaceful sense about it. It seems to hold a lot of memory, yet it also makes me feel like wanting to be out and about enjoying nature. Dancing amongst the trees :)
Hi everyone. I wanted to start off by sharing just a few of the things that I would classify as my favourite. I have a thing for butterflies. They are just so beautiful and free and it doesn't matter what they are made with/of, they always seem to look so pretty.
These are not my works. These are found images that I have collected and are always pinned to my notice board.
Thank you to those who create such beautiful pieces that can be appreciated by others and in turn inspire others to be creative.
