dance in the rain...


I was just messing round on this page just putting any kind of colours down and pasting odd pictures that I found in my scrapbox plus the quote "Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass..its about learning how to dance in the rain". My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have suffered in Japan this week who have faced real storms not metaphorical ones.


Finished some more jewellery pieces that I started..this one is photographed on a coiled pot I made when I was about 20yrs so its very old!!

I subscribe online to the american simply handmade magazines and wanted a box to put in the pages that I print out...so altered my graze boxes and they are just the right size.

Today I was really pleased as the compost bin I started a couple of years ago has finally produced some compost which I have put on my fruit garden..I am growing blackberries, redcurrants, blueberries, rhubarb, gooseberries and raspberries this year...so it will be great when they are big and produce lots of fruit like my friends Kristin in Norway.

Just let the art lead you to the way it wants to be. Your collage really resonates the feeling of Wabi Sabi.

I am envious that you were able to produce compost as mine always turns into sludge. My Daughter In Law also makes the most wonderful sweet smelling compost . I love the journal page also as I wrote on Facebook my thoughts also are with the thousands affected by the earthquake.
