YOU WILL NEVER DO IT!

YOU WILL NEVER DO IT!

Through the years I have heard a version of that sentence too many times. It went like this: "You won't manage" - when I was about to start my first job, "she will never drive" - when I started driving after getting my driving licence, "you can not paint" - from a 'friend', "you will never get the black belt" - same person..., "your daughter's life will be limited because of the scoliosis" - from the doctors.... So I have a reason to celebrate a big time as I received my Shodan yesterday ( a black belt in aikido). It is hugely important...

Daily Mantras - what are yours?

Daily Mantras - what are yours?

I'm as excited as Orla to show you my first silk scarf "Daily Mantras" in my newest collection "In Search of Magic". It has rich orange colour with a mixture of black, blue, white & grey. The whole collection is bold, colourful and full of symbolism. The world situation is a bit unsettled right now.

Mother's Day Portrait drawn by my son and made by Jacinta

Mother's Day Portrait drawn by my son and made by Jacinta

Yesterday I was contacted by Jacinta from Scatterpillardesigns and she let me know that my son's drawing (a portrait of me he did in 2015) won the contest. Jacinta creates beautiful toys out of children drawings and when I met her at the Glucksman Craft and Design Fair two years ago I fell in love with her creations.  So I am thrilled I will have my son's drawing turned into 3D object. It will be cherished forever.  Below is a whole post from Jacinta's blog showing the process.  Happy Mother’s Day from one Mum to another …. 26 Mar/in Framed embroidery...
