I had a magic time this last week. My friends made it so.
There was a very tasty home made orange cake and we spent hours chatting and kicking around ideas. We drooled over Dawn's craft stash and were awed by the number of projects she has on the go. I received a set of Tilda books, an early Valentine and a crochet cupcake as a gift, can't tell you how excited I am over my little treasures. I came home feeling dog tired and very inspired.
This morning when I went to the post office... Lo! A parcel from Nancy in the US. It's a beautiful woven leather strap for my glasses, and ingredients to make a few more. Nancy, you are a marvel. How did you know that after months I still haven't got around to making one?
Tomorrow we have a play date at Ina's house. We have a doll and teddy bear making group that get together every once in a while to work on our projects. Lots of creative talent and inspiration there.
I'm looking forward to the weekend. Wishing you a good one too!

No more birthdays for six months. I'm taking a break from inventing cakes.
This holiday season was a culinary adventure. Even Clyde is too stuffed with good food to stir.
I do think this cake begs to be recreated in miniature in polymer clay for my dolls house collection though. The look on everyone's faces as I cut the first slice was memorable!

Beautiful bonfire built by Henning for our New Year dinner party.
I thought that if I could start 2015 with a tidy workroom and a clean house I would be happy. Every year the same idea comes to my mind. I really tried.
This morning my studio is scattered with so many works in progress that I can't even count them.
The kitchen counters are piled high with dirty dishes and there's a trail of mud on the floor where the dogs ran through. A tangle of laundry waits for the washing machine.
Never in my life have I started a year when I felt that I had as much potential and new ideas as I do today.
The party around a fire with friends and family was memorable and a quiet celebration for making it through a difficult year.
My home is filled with the humans and animals I love.
2015 will be the year when I make a bonfire of wants and wishes. I'm burning away all the trivialities that aren't pertinent to living a purposeful life. I will work hard beside that fire. Because I have a plan. This is a year for taking action.
May your year be filled with purpose too, and may you have the strength and good health to put your plan in action.
