So many changes

I'm thinking about so many things at the moment. I'm trying to get things organised around the house while I have the time and energy and can still (sort of) bend over. I feel like the house has so many little things that need fixing, painting etc. We will probably be moving on in a year or so, and it would be nice to have it looking great when we do.

I felt so inspired to do art while I was at work, I had so many things in my head I wanted to create. Now I just feel overwhelmed by all the things I want to do! I am encouraged by this post by Penelope Dullaghan. I need to do my own thing and not compare myself to other people. I will get out my art diary and create, draw, scrawl, and see what happens. My style is so all over the place right now, it needs to move on to something new. I also need to stop procrastinating, the internet is such a time waster.

I am moving on from my past in many ways. In my new life as a mother, and working for myself again.

Even the way I dress is changing. Not just because I'm not going to work and I am getting bigger, but because I can relax a bit and wear dresses, skirts and sandals every day. It feels great!

I wanted Steve to take a photo of my chai that says chai on it. You know, just in case I wasn't sure what I was drinking.

We are enjoying our remaining days as just the two of us.

Hey Anna!

Thanks so much for sharing the link to the Hau Hauz bags - I had seen their prints in the past (and loved them!) but hadn't seen some of those bags before... how gorgeous are they!

Danielle :-)

Thanks for the kind comment on createcraft. How exciting that you are a mother to be. My baby boy is 4 months old now and I experienced some of the feelings you are going through. I had so many plans and was creating rugs and clothes for him (didn't know it was a him just yet though!!). Unfortunately (fortunately??) he was born 6 weeks early so many plans never came to fruition for me. enjoy every minute of it, it is an incredible journey. Really...
