After the stress and busy of October I needed the break. Unfortunately, I allowed new stresses to fill in for the ones I'd just gotten done with...and not enough resting happened. . At the end of the month I learned, yet again, that the stress wasn't worth it. I didn't get through all the hoops I'd put pressure on myself to jump...and that was ok. I had a very productive and successful month without those hoops...so I could have done without the extra pressure too. . One day that lesson will stick... . In the mean time, I took myself out for a nice long walk this morning...which ended with a rest on the rocks, listening to the waves and wind...until my nose got too cold. Now I'm going to spend the rest of the day going easy on myself... . #natureconnection #soundsofnature #betterlatethannever #watersedge #morningwalk #naturecalmsme #selfcare #spoonie #iamenough 31 Days, 31 Creative Challenges. January, Bring it on! dothinkshare.com/sign-up/ #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Day 334/365 4th December and I have finally caught up with my drawing project. I spotted this table and chairs at the back of @hoxton_arches Gallery in March and it has taken me this long to do a sketch from the photo I took then. Day 332/365 This box of adamantine pins reminds me of my MA as I had to buy really strong pin to go through the stuff fabric I was looping to create sculptures! Day 332/365 Another jug from the V&A Day 329/365 Lovely old mangle at the Medicine Garden. We used to have one of these in the garage when I was a child although I can’t remember my mother using it ever by then. I really wish we had kept it as I can think of all sorts of uses I got it now although none washing related.

For the last #Angel20 challenge, and in true 20th birthday style - this week we challenge you to....... celebrate! Find your moments of celebration through-out the week - the big, the small and the in between. Celebrate your successes and those of the people around you; celebrate the end of a long day, and celebrate the beginning of another one. Celebrate them in the best way you can - can you mark the moment in a creative way? Maybe with a song, a dance, through writing, by trying a new recipe or simply taking the time to talk and acknowledge the moment. Tell people, celebration is contagious....! .

The challenge was to map nature's movements. This is what I came up with... . I went to the beach...for fresh air and to look for beach glass...and just stood still for a while, taking in what was around me. . The 2 tiny specks in the air are seagulls. Their erratic flying (because of the strong wind) was what inspired me to tackle this challenge...I just knew drawing their flight path would be fun and look neat. . I couldn't get the sand lines to flow to my liking...but there are 2 sets to represent both the water and sand moving forward and back. . The water was the most interesting. I didn't notice until after I'd drawn them...but the waves really do kind of look like heartbeats... . #movementmapping #betterlatethannever #windyday #waves #birdsinflight #watersedge #healing #spoonie Day 322/365 I have just discovered #dorsettea. Not only does it have wonderful packaging (it is actually very colourful) but it tastes amazing too (especially with a scone). #linedrawing #inkyfingers #teadrinker Sounds of Nature inside this art installation at Kew Gardens #64millionartists @nature #botanics #sitespecificart #immersive #Hive Day 321/365 Bought some new drawing ink #inkyfingers Day 320/365 A certain person in our house keeps putting these in the dishwasher so they have gone all rusty but I am keeping them to stitch into sometime. #linedrawing #simplicity Day 319/365 I know these aren’t particularly healthy but I do love these #turnocksteacakes they remind me of my childhood and I love the packaging.
