    1. Thanks Renee! For a while now I've wanted a swing in my back yard...so thought I'd start by drawing one... and perhaps this summer I'll figure out how to build a real one.

  3. LOVE the fruit and vegies... sadly when I doodle I tend to write words, the same word over and over. I spoke to my Mum for hald an hour yesterday and at the end of the conversation I had completed covered two A4 sheets in the word 'August' ... I have no idea why!

  4. That swing ... I feel as if I can just detect a hint of movement, as if not so long ago someone was swinging on it!

  6. Jill, I have a thing for trees (if you haven't already guessed from my blog header) and your doodles are gorgeous. I especially love the first one. I really REALLY love that one. x

Time to get focused....

Lately life has been getting in the way of my ability to focus on this little business. I've been feeling keen...excited...but too time poor to spend much time in my studio. Elderly parents and my gardening  business have been taking priority.
But I know from past experience that if I don't have my design work plodding along beside all those other commitments my life just doesn't seem to work right...it starts to feel out of balance.
So this morning...I gave myself a bit of a talking to and decided that I need to turn my focus a little towards this creative venture.  As I typed the word venture, I wanted to delete it and write adventure instead, because that's what I am craving...creative adventure. So...let the creative adventures begin!!
Small steps...for the next few weeks I'm going to use this blog as a place to record the daily steps I take to get this part of my life back on track again.

Creative adventure day 2....

Day 2 of my new creative adventure and two lovely things happened today. 
First, the lovely people who run felt.co.nz, (that hosts my online shop), showcased one of my products on the homepage....
and second, a lovely friend of mine bought a set of coasters.

This afternoon I had to take my car to get a warrant of fitness and learned that I needed something small but expensive fixed. So, came home feeling a bit despondent...The enthusiasm I felt yesterday for pushing ahead with this little design business had waned under the looming car bill...
Then I turned on my computer and discovered that lovely things were happening in my day that I had been unaware of and felt encouraged. 
So, back on track, refocusing and blocking out silly things like car bills....what small tasks can I do today?

I'm going to wrap up the coasters ready to post tomorrow,...
Sand some more coasters ready to print...
Start making a new makeup bag...
And of course, publish this blog post.

Don't you just lo…

First day back...

It's my first day back in my studio this year...
Too many tea breaks as I'm at a bit of a loss. A bit nervous.  A bit excited. Not sure what I'm doing. 

Vague ideas about projects I want to do, but nothing fully formed. Focus required.


I've pulled all my drawings and inspirational bits and pieces off my studio wall. 
They are tired.
So last year!

I want new.
A clean slate, a new page.

A couple of screens are stacked, ready to paint.
An empty wall wants decorating with new ideas.
Writing this....excitement is winning over nervousness.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Jill xx
