wander this world .....

gosh where did the last month go.....I didn't mean to stay away so long but  I have  been trying to stay off the computer and get some things done....its such a time waster.....
 
our Charlie left on  her overseas jaunt to go Denmark and then Ireland til the end of the year.......... it was not without its dramas like the car breaking down on way to airport...((((
 
thank goodness for wonderful friends who got Charlie and me there in time....and another lovely friend for the loan of a car while our is being repaired.... I did feel a bit sad for her saying goodbye to her dad and sis on the side of the road though....
 
 
 
 
ted went too.....pity she couldn't have squashed me in as well......
 
 
 
 
 
bye mor..... [mum in Danish]
 
look at that grin...
 
finally going :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 I then spent the next day moving into her room [much to Lucy's disgust ] however Charlie did pack everything up into her wardrobe for me to convert it and her only request was that didn't pin anything into her pride and joy purple wall.....[ which I haven't :) ]
 
now for the first time in absolutely years have a nice little arty crafty space to myself.....I would've loved to have dismantled the bed and put my sewing machine in there but there was a lot of storage under it so had to leave it........
 
 
 put up  my prayer flags..... and little dresses...
 
 
 a mess already ....
 
little bits and bobs people have sent me...:)
 
 
 
 
hehe....sorted mess... 
 
 
 
recent postcard swap....
 
 
finally got my paper shelves set up.....I picked these up at a closing down sale years ago...
 
a bigger table would be nice but it works ok..... 
 
 
 
 and most days since I have escaped down here and fiddled about even if its only for 10 minutes scribbling in my art journal.........
 
 
 
bliss :)

bittersweet having your girl traveling, but on the bright side it is lovely to have a place that you can go to and not have to feel like you need to pack up your art supplies every time ... that is hard and takes up time you need to create!

Love seeing your creative space and even see a little something from VA there ;) ... the prayer flags and your dresses and postcards oh my ... such a lot of eye candy!

Happy Weekend to you dear Jen
