So here is a little bit more about me…
I have lots of interests, and part of the reason I created this blog was so I could pursue them and simultaneously create a record of them, a place where I can track my evolving style, my growth (hopefully) as an artist/creative person and also track what my interests are at any given time.
At the moment, I have reignited an old passion, creating handmade cards, so I am making lots of cards and trying to stretch my creativity in that area, I am also a recent convert to Travelers Notebooks/Bullet Journaling, using a gorgeous leather Midori style to keep my life in order, and a place where I can be creative on the go, like this, this, this and this. I’ve only just started my Bujo journey, so the links here are all sources I’ve used to help and inspire me.
I also like to keep an art journal, I like to try my hand at drawing and sketching, I’ve started to try out some watercolour pieces, some mixed-media and I love trying new mediums and techniques. I have recently bought some supplies to try my hand at mini album making. Another thing I love about arting and crafting is that there are so many tools, supplies and techniques that can be used for, and cross over to, all types of arts and crafts, this is also good because then I can justify the purchase of said goodies :)
A little off arting and crafting, I also love podcasts. And audiobooks. And Ted talks This is what I listen too when I get into my creative zone, they amuse, inform and inspire me, so I will probably mention some of my favourites in upcoming posts.
In case you don’t want to read my Hello & Welcome post, I am a mum to two grown daughters, one off at uni and living away from home (although we do see her lots which is lovely as she still comes home to work), and one doing VCE this year. I am a wife to my husband of 22 years (really, can it be that long?), I work part time, mostly to pay for my latest obsession, oh and so we can eat! LOL
At my previous blog, The Blissful Pixel, you can also see my love of photography, Photoshop, digital scrapbooking and a few other fun things.
So that’s me, at least the part of me that will be what this blog is about. I haven’t been good about photographing my past explorations into creativity, but above are a just few, and now I’m finishing off with a recent pic of my family on a recent trip to beautiful Tasmania.
Yep, they make me smile too :)
