maybe it's because it's winter or maybe it's because i'm pregnant but i seem to be focusing on what i want from life with a kind of razor sharpness. and much of what i want is in this very home, my son, my husband and the little kicking being in my belly.
i want my house to be a nice space to be in. a place for creativity, food, and people. it's getting there, or maybe it's already there. but i just enjoy being a little home maker!
we recently did up jasper's room...stripped the wall paper, painted the walls white and pulled up the manky carpet to reveal beautiful floor boards. being a north facing room, we thought it would be a great setting for earl's photo shoot performing for kids. we were very lucky to get tea and jam photography on board and some kids from our hood. all of this happened yesterday and it was so much fun! thank you to every one who came along...i'll be sure to show the photos here just as soon as we get them from the talented tea and jam folk.
i've decided to focus more on writing and illustrating picture books and would really love to find a publisher for 'when i close my eyes...' i find the process of writing and illustrating so completely satisfying! and it's something i can do from home, or while travelling (if we end up going to alice springs for earl's music workshops!!!)
