I'm very very excited at the moment because I'm going to an all day make and create workshop next weekend led by the talented Alex Falkiner. I was lucky enough to win an Instagram giveaway to attend and to say I'm really looking forward to it would be an understatement!
First of all this will be my first full day away from my daughter and I'm looking forward to being able to focus my attention on something completely for a whole day, I manage to get bits and pieces done at home but I'm never completely focused, a full interrupted day of art is such a luxury right now! Also I'm interested to see how hubby goes looking after Kirra for a full day, I'm sure he'll be fine but I'm glad he will be getting a taste of my current life (if only he could do the night feeds too!)
Most of all I'm just busting to create, it's been nine long months without much time for my favourite hobbies and with summer coming on and the change of season in the if the timing feels so right to start making again in earnest.
I can already feel my creativity returning in anticipation, just this week I have already made my daughter 2 dresses and 4 headbands, put up the Christmas tree and done some Christmas chalk art on our front door!
Here's is some of Alex's work..........I love her use of colour and form to create whimsical and surprising pieces.
