Soul Restoration

By now, those who visit my blog regularly will know that I love searching for beautiful blogs that restore my soul, this is one that I found recently and I think the reason I love going there so often is that I love the music that plays in the background while I brows through all the stunning pictures. Sharing is caring and this is really worth sharing.

This is seriously NO JOKE. I friend of mine has actually been in this pool and he isn't normal and neither is anyone else who would want to do this. Google Devil's Pool at Victoria Falls and take a look at some of the video footage.

What a lovely holiday for the whole family... NOT !

Okay not I need a drink !

Give Aways

I have never done this before, so this is a first. There are a lot of people who visit my blog from my website who don't leave comments but I am so pleased that you do drop by. I would like to encourage anyone who doesn't have a blog to give it a try, it really is fun and there are some beautiful, caring and talented people out there in the big wide world.
What I am going to do for this first time give away just to see what people really enjoy in my own work is to offer a few give aways just to see the reaction. The one that recieves the most comments will be the one that is given away. You need to say which one you would like to receive if you are the lucky one.
I will be sending two faces. One will be on fabric and one will be on paper. Do with them what you will.
These six little love birds can be used for many different things. Use them in journals, prayer flags, key rings, mobiles what ever.
I will send you an item of pewter for you to use where ever you would like. In other words, you send me the dimensions and I will make something suitable.

We have only got a short while so hurry to leave a comment that is all you have to do :o)

Featured Blog Carolyn Saxby

As promised I am going to feature every week some of my favourite blogs. Oh wow how inspiring Carolyn Saxby is with her beautiful work. I have been admiring her for a very long time. Somewhere on my blog I posted one of her hearts about a year or two ago.
What I love about her is not only her magnificent sense of colour, but the sensitive way she communicates through her work. I am not going to say too much about her, I want you to pay her a visit and leave her lots of messages. She has been sick recently with flu and I am sure she could do with some cheering up.

Carolyn has two blogs and a flickr account, take the time to go and see all her work, she really is amazing.
Love Stitching Red. Follow her links to the sketchbook projects 2011, beautiful work, but a very sad story for inspiration.
Flickr account.

If you don't waste most of your day browsing through all her work then I will be very surprised. No matter what medium you work with you will be inspired by her breath taking work.

Prayer Flags

I have a friend her name is Lunette. I found this blog about prayer flags and really wanted to make some for her. She is being treated for cancer and we are all trusting that she will be healed. Please if you are reading this... just say a little prayer for her I know she would appreciate it.
Jane is a multi talented artist and you can see some of her prayer flags which is where I got the idea.
Jane made this one. Please go and visit her blog... trust me you will really be inspired.

Please don't ignore them.

Amazing Artist. Teresa Posyniak

I have not been blogging for a while now, too busy dealing with some demons of my own that rear their heads every now and again. Most of the people who visit this blog come via my website,, but I also have a lot of very talented artist friends around the world who occassionally pop in to leave a comment. Where ever you come from, please I need your help. Will you show your support and stand up agains DOMESTIC VIOLENCE against women and children by following this blog and leaving a comment.

For most of you, I hope this is not an experience you are familiar with, but if one looks at the statistics there is bound to be someone close to you who is in this situation and we have to continue to speak out against all forms of abuse.
