On the weekend we awoke to a slippery friend jumping around our kitchen... a frog! Marley nearly jumped out of his skin, "wow, a frog Mum!" After a short stint in the bug catcher Mr Hippity Hop was released into the garden and I knew this was a good omen. To confirm my suspicions I did some quick research on the meaning of frog and found the following:

Animal symbolism of the frog speaks of:

  • Luck
  • Purity
  • Rebirth
  • Renewal
  • Fertility
  • Healing
  • Metamorphosis
  • Transitions
  • Dreaming
  • Opportunity
  • Intermediary
All sounds beautiful to me!

As for recent creative activity, I whipped out the old singer and made an art smock for a friends birthday. I bought the fabric from my local fabric shop (very cute) and mum had a pattern lying around...voila! I actually managed to make something from a pattern although I must confess that I didn't follow it exactly - words tend to get in the way of my creative process, just show me pictures and I'll work it out. I have no idea how people follow knitting patterns. One look at those knitting books full of numbers and letters and my head wigs out! Anyway - somehow it all came together...

Well Easter is just around the corner and I'm sure there'll be some Easter creations to share... so until then have a lovely Easter. I love Easter, such a special time especially the Easter moon - always amazing.

disclaimer: If the above is incoherent and a bit.... umm bitsy it's thanks to the constant (reliable) interruptions created by Marley Barley Sugar (aka: mbs). Whilst getting this post up we've done brekky, had marbles hurled at me, bid farewell to dad, which incidentally is like an entire ritual that involves standing outside and waving until the bongo van disappears from sight and now I'm being tapped with a book...a lovely subtle message to stop doing this computer stuff and read me a story! So I'm off to read "I'm Just a Crab" x ciao

Hi there...

My first entry in the land of blog... hopefully I'll get some pics up soon and get some colour happening! Will be keeping you posted on my latest creations and the occasional funny story about mumdom and my toddler who is a constant source of hilarity, sweetness and at times frustration - bless you Barley Sugar...you colour my world the way nothing else can!!
