Not a productive week!  Messed everything up!
However Giggles of The Happy Tiler  saved the day.
Since I stopped blogging earlier in the year, I have lurked  about PPF but haven't felt like leaving  comments.   Tonight when I read her latest post,  it really spoke to me.  I have had heaps of grief this year and just cant speak.  It hurts too much.  I was sitting on the couch thinking I must leave a comment while watching the Australian  version of The Voice and Adam Lambert was guest singer.  He sang My heart is a Ghost Town and I realised that what was the matter.  I have to lay the ghosts to rest!  Let the living come into my heart, let my heart live, and stop the silence.

So I photographed a messed up drawing and played with it digitally.  Thanks Sherry.

A fresh start

Wow it has been nearly 6 months since I last posted!  Time does fly.   My art mojo took a holiday.  At times I was convinced I would never create a picture again.  But a miracle happened the weekend.  I started to draw again. I woke up in the middle of the night, with heaps of inspiration.  I was twitching to start, in the end I got up at 4:30 and got my pencils out of the dark depths of my art cupboard and started…..

At this stage I only feel like drawing, I have decided to do a journal of the whimsical world of a young girl, completely random, just whatever takes her fancy, be it nature or other people.  I have no idea where it is going to take me, but the journey will be interesting.

What do I have to thank for this inspiration?  While I have not been up to painting I have been creative.  Mostly, crochet.  Beautiful glorious colour!
I have been doing a Crochet along with Dedri Uys of Look what I made fame.  It is called Sophie’s Universe and is an amazing piece of design.  I got way behind as for while there I lost my crochet mojo too.  But I am still plugging away at it.

It is already a metre wide, and I am only half way through.  But it makes me smile every time I see it, had to use it in my new header.

I have decided to streamline and have my blogging under one roof.  So my arty friends, I will post arty stuff on Friday and Sunday, and my crafty friends I will post on week days.

I am going to try and post the saga of Sophie every weekend, so tune then to see her first Adventure.

A bit of crochet eye candy! 

As you see creativity will always find a way to manifest!

Thanks for visiting and see you soon.

Linking with Sunday Sketches today.
