Morning, Sunshine.

It's early. It seems that all the birds in the world are anticipating the light, already bursting with song. It's no small feat, this matter of rising each day with a song. I have no idea how they do it. It's the stuff of Lazarus poems and earth-worshipping paintings. I will sit here, just for a moment, and allow myself to be awed by this small thing. I cannot see the sun, but I know it's on its way. I can feel it:)

Have a beautiful day.

Making Notebooks

I call them thought books:). They're wee little notebooks, decorated with artwork and all sorts of intricate design details. They're meant to be carried around, kept for recording inspiration wherever one may find it. I've used all sorts of natural fibres, including strong tree vines and coconut tree fibres. It's soo good to make things. My hands are tired, but it's been incredibly fulfilling.

The Three Ladies: Notebooks

The Three Ladies are watercolour and ink pieces. Each one is uniquely patterned, and is a perfectly unique individual in my mind. They've been in my head for awhile now, but it was only last week that I was able to put them to paper. 

I've embarked upon a paper project, with these ladies at the core. The first part of it is this series of little hand-stitched notebooks. A print of each lady is included, and seen through a window in the outer cover. The outer cover is also hand-collaged. 

I'm hoping, soon, to be able to make more of these that I can offer for sale. There are also bookmarks and postcards in the works. I have such faith in this project... can't wait to update you with progress :)

Moon Water and the Bamboo Lady

"On the night of a full moon, fill a jar with water.
After the moon is fully visible in the sky, take the jar outside and position it so the moon is reflected within. Maintain this position, looking at the moon's reflection in the water.
The water is now charged with lunar energy."

"The Bamboo Lady", keeper of water and enchantress of the moon. 
watercolour, acrylic and ink.

Dryad Blog

I've been posting the odd photos here, from time to time. I take too many... they take on lives of their own!
They're so good for my creative process, though. I've started a blog for these images, and random bits of nature stuff.

It's here...

The only thing better than being outside is being outside with the doggies :)
I'm not a photographer, but I do love to capture beautiful little things. Hope these make you smile, or at least make your heart a bit lighter.
