My Creative Space

This week I decided to do something I used to do heaps when I was a kid- sketch interiors from magazines. It has been ages since I have done I gave it a shot! I tried not to think too much about it and just have fun. I did a quick sketch then hit the watercolours. It took longer than I thought but it was good to get back into it.

This was the picture from House and Garden that I decided to sketch.

Not perfect but happy, seeing as it has been so long. I hope to find time to do a bit more to improve and keep having fun. If you want to check out what other people are up to this week check out Kootoyoo.

My Creative Space- Its great to be back

It has been well over a month since I last posted…where did the time go? My project this week was to bring together the things I have been doing in this past month and finally make a posting.

During this last month I was lucky enough to spend some time down in the South Coast, mostly Milton and Berry but also day trips to Huskisson, Kiama, Mollymook and Ulladulla. The South Coast is one of my all time favourite places to relax and unwind.

While I was away I had fun doing some water colour painting…

Indulging in a long loved art- nature photography…



Flower 2

I stumbled across, quite accidently, my new gorgeous red boots! I have been on the lookout for red boots this Winter but no luck until I was lured into a shoe shop in Milton. The smell of leather inspired in me hope- hope that my long awaited boots might be in there. Sure enough they were sitting waiting for me, as was another stunning pair of black lace up boots. Is there nothing better than finding treasures when you aren’t even looking…

I have done small amounts of entertaining in my home and enjoyed cooking my new favourite dish- Chilly, Cumin, Vegetable and Slow Cooked Beef Curry.


I have also made a few pieces of jewellery…
