Alice


... found this too

the sum of all of my very own choices...


This has been repeated to me over and over in the last week, .... 
firstly it was in a movie i was watching , then in a magazine article, then in a conversation with a friend today, even in an art blog i was just reading...
over and over its coming up..
so universe...OK, ... i see you, i acknowledge you.. i get it!

 "I AM the result of every single choice i have ever made...
right here... right now"...

 my life, my art, my job, my income, my body, my creativity, my diet, my children, my non existent love life, where i live...
 is all a result of every... single.... small.... daily ....sometimes barely a thought..... choices i have made... not even the BIG ones... its the little ones along the way... every little one...

... i am now  going to make good positive choices, and put more thought into the little choices i have...
  i am grateful for having those choices in the first place...

Ruby



Good news, nothings broken, no internal bleeding, Rubys fine to be released, shes a little groggy here after a vets visit... and Ruby is a mum, a tiny little pinky in her pouch.

Ruby

Harley and I rescued this little critter after I ran over it... poor little thing, shes a Brush tailed possum. She made it thru the night, by the way she's getting around, I think her back leg is broken.... off to the vets today.

today's simple pleasures...



Driving to work, to a job i love, past the rolling waves in Kilcunda, with a hot coffee...
Cute guy with dreads smiles and waves... gives me warm tingles...
Giggles with the lovely Verona...
Eldest son drops into work, gives me cuddles... just because he wanted to ...

Miss Ally pops in and shares her beautiful felting projects...
... creative juices overflow...
 oozes onto floor in psychedelic puddles for me to splash around in...

Ashes of Sai Baba come to me...
A stranger shares stories of her travels throughout India...
Snuggling up with the littlest son on the lounge...

Look what my sister made!



Recently i became an Aunty, im very excited...
we havent had a baby in the family since Jesse..
and hes just turned ten!
Thats my dad with his brand new 2 hour old grandson....
Welcome to the world Eli John Phelps...

If wishes were horses beggars would ride...



I saw this Gypsy Van at an auction place, and immediately
 fell deeply in love!
My dream .... one day...
 is to travel Australia in one of these, pulled by a team of camels
 .... i will have an old singer foot peddeled sewing machine,
and beautiful textiles and fabrics, velvets, laces, and silks... 
spilling out of drawers and boxes in the back...
bits i have collected from all over the world, on my adventures....
and travel and sew, and travel and sew my creations,
 stopping by creeks to dye my creations
 with bark, leaves and flowers...
just like India showed me.
Then off i go to the next festival, or market with my wares...
Its a great dream to get lost in... one day...

Blank Canvas


 

... found this old crochet table cloth in the opp shop...
 its like staring at a blank canvas.
 My intention is to make a long vest out of it...
... But can i actually chop it up?

universe loves me....


Yesterday was Valentines Day...
 there were no roses, chocolates or mushy poems for me this year ....
However... when i went for a walk down the beach today,
 i found this little heart shaped rock pool ...
the universe loves me!
