An almighty bloom!

As with any time of growth there comes an almighty BLOOOOOM!

And I tell you what...there are so many awe inspiring blooms around it's filling me with such zest and ooomph!......

that I'm having a little bloom of my own...

I'll tell you more when the shoots have been tended to and the garden is grown, but suffice to say the last 2 weeks (of living in a dizzy spinning world) has been spent with a whole LOT of time "being" and not much doing....and what should begin to emerge but insights and inspirations and little seeds pleading to be cultivated.

oh yes! and this purple castle which I made for my mum's birthday (she is the BEST and she also loves purple and castles!)

Inspired by the Tiny world tutorial I bought from Mimi Kirchner.

Thankyou so much for all your thoughtful comments, it surely helped me on the road to recovery....I'm feeling a whole WHOLE world better. Yippeee! :)xx


  1. Glad you are bouncing back Jenny...looking forward to seeing the fruits of your germinations!
    How cool you that you have had the opportunity to 'be' and have found something calling!
    Your flowers and tiny intricate purple castle are blooming marvellous!!
