Its probably safe to say from my recent painting that I am still hankering after spring and summer :) However as much as I drag my heels along with the fast approaching winter I am being reminded that autumn and winter is just as important and soul nourishing...
While I'm not keen to do it, this time of year does invite us to slooooooow down! The early dark nights beckon us to keep warm and together. Our focus becomes more introspective and for me thoughts of where have I come from (this past year) and where do I want to go? arise... the space to take time and dream is made...
So yes....just as vital as spring and summer :)
I always seem to embark on a project (or several!) at this time of year, and having been introduced to the extra-ordinary world of blogdom I have discovered quite a few projects to get my teeth stuck into!
The infectiously sweet and gorgeous Tam from Willowing and Friends is doing an "Art, Heart and Healing workshop" over the next 4 weeks. If you are at all interested in whimsy or just want to take part in something with a WHOLE lot of love then join in! Its free!! Yes FREE, I say!!! Amazing!
Another wonderfully radiant sun- shiny lady called Andrea Schroeder is running her "Creative adventure" course which runs for a whole YEAR and is also FREE! Woweee! Its full of positivity, encouragement and support to help you recognise what your dreams are and make them come true. I'm ALL for that!
Today is also the day that the "big stitched Postcard Swap" begins, run by the very lovely Beth Nicholls. I discovered the last one Beth held just as the swap had finished and everyone was sharing the postcards they received.....some amazing ickle works of art and stitch....such a brilliant idea...and so I vowed to join in next time!
So do any of these tickle your fancy? Come join in...... :)
