I just want a cloud to pass
and lift me up
and carry me away to another place.
where the silence lives
where thoughts are kept
and hidden.
Where no-one else
can touch your skin
or jump into your head,
where birds sleep,
where the wind is still.

I wish
just for a moment
I could sit inside a tree
and listen to it's heart beat,
it's roots entwining
around me
and holding me tight,
making me forget.
Forget the noise,
forget the thoughts,
forget the world.
Quietly alone.

I've been making some fabric cuffs (from reclaimed,recycled material) the past week and as usual I seem to have a short spurt of enthusiasm to make a certain thing, then in a couple of weeks or sometimes sooner I move onto something else....
I've always been like this, one day I love clay ...the next I'm fed up of it....then I'm sewing a skirt...then threading up a necklace!
I'm so scatty and unfocused at times!
But I've come to realize that this is how I work, and I'm letting my intuition lead me!
If I feel comfortable making something I'm happy, but if I feel uninspired or there's no heart going into my creation I'll stop and leave it be.
Sometimes I just need to get things out of my an idea that's been jumping around in my head for days begging to get out.....
once it's been realized.. I'm at peace!
or my brain is at least!!!

There are more photos in my Flickr
and soon to be in my Etsy shop.

new necklaces

I've finally finished some of my clay bird necklaces, and my new butterflies, flowers and feathery ear-rings...
I'm going to send most of them away to my local outlets,and maybe find some new places to put them.
Some I've put in my Etsy shop.

colours are more natural this time, instead of the brighter greens and blues, pinks, etc....
They seem to have a softness to them too.

I sometimes buy pre-made pizzas. I think they are pretty awful and have no taste, but if the family are hungry and I'm feeling lazy...t...
