....Tied Up with string....
these are a few of my favourite things....
I love that song from 'The Sound of Music' what a feel good movie huh?
maybe I should go rent it on DVD...I need a little pick me up.
Andrew has been away for work all week and then he is off skiing with friends next week so its been a little tiring for me ... the boys and I spent a night at my parents during the week and that was a lot of fun!
My mum looks after them when I go to work so I thought it would be great to sleep over, then just wake up and head off to work. In my mind I was planning to stop at a cafe before work for great coffee and a hearty breakfast ....nothing like that happened of course.
My mornings are crazy I tell you...Im always rushing to get everyone ready then off I go to battle the morning traffic. No complaints though....life is good!

A while back I took part in Diary Project 2008
where each page of the diary was designed/illustrated by a different blogger. I had May 15th as my page....it was a simple drawing and I started with the top pattern which then reminded me of calamari rings so I drew the little girl fishing haha...
anyway the Diaries are now available to buy through the above link or through etsy
A great gift idea!

Top pic is an altered matchbox - the theme was Summer

  5. Wonderful drawing! Calm and peaceful! Maybe it'll have the same effect on everyone who buys one and turns the page to May 15th next year. :-)
