It’s been stinking hot here and of course in my world that must mean it’s time for hard physical labour that makes my knees tremble and my heart flutter – in fact yesterday it was pumping so hard my pulse was in my throat. I swear I am almost looking svelte and lithe. I feel old though – yesterday I had to sit down twice on the way up the hill and FYI – NEVER drink a smoothie before climbing a hill you’ve named The Hill Of Doom. It doesn’t feel nice.
In between moving the furniture a friend gave us I have been getting my craft on after several weeks of no crafting. I finished my teddy bear embroidered doll, am uber-pleased with it and it is listed in the shop as a Little Love – a range of toys for little hands.
Also listed in the shop is this ring, made by a friend Stephen Anderson, an extremely talented artist. And I mean talented – I am green with envy. It’s not just jewellery either, he has made some breathtaking pottery, he draws, he has published a book of his poetry. You name it, he’s good at it. This ring is freaking amazing!
Amazing right? It’s absolutely inspired me and I am definitely going to (finally) get off my butt and take a jewelery making course this year. Viva la dreams!
