AEDH WISHES FOR THE CLOTHS OF HEAVEN

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with gold and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Oh night and light and the half light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Unexpected Exercise


A fun little exercise found whilst browsing through Keri Smith's blog yet again. If the drawing is too 'abstract' you can't interpret what it is - it's me on the sofa-bed with pillows propped up and magazines/books scattered around me.

creative exercise for the day COMPLETE!

COLOURING IN SESSION WITH THE KIDDLIES





After my niece and nephew saw me colouring in 'Bird Girl' in the first drawing, they wanted to give it a go too. A bit of Sunday morning colour-in fun.

Another Portrait Book by Jefferson Hack -
A collection of Another Magazine's most striking portrait photography.
Playing around with paint for the first time since being in London. Practicing my colour combination on Tilda Swinton's face.

Love the portraits in this book. Especially this of Christina Ricci and THAT yellow fingernail.

My sister found this one recently and I added it to a collage I did at the SWH workshop:

SANDCASTLES with my brother!


I'm not a fan of gnomes, these ones especially. That Minnie Mouse jumper was one of my favourites, although when my mum first bought it was down to my knees.


TRAVEL - someday soon I hope.


I have an issue with carousels. I have never been on one on my own, and when when I finally got the chance to my horse was the only one that stayed stationary. BOOO!! Even though I remember being annoyed (my mother's holding me), I still love that everyone looks so excited in this photo.
