Colour and creativity makes me happy!!!

I had a very enjoyable day today @ Eumundi Square ... working, taking photos for my madeit store and admiring all of the colour and shapes of my creations ... a bit like a kid in a candy shop ;-)
Hope you love the colour as much as I do!!!

inner beauty ...

“There is an inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything she puts her mind to. There is a beauty in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isn’t thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences - who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and keep going.”

we have enjoyed a long summer holiday ...

wow ... it has been almost 8 weeks since my last post!!!  I have been enjoying a long summer holiday, spending lots of time with my family over school holidays and the christmas and new year period!  We have had lots of rain here, lots of time indoors and a little bit of luxury too!  But now it is back to reality - with the school year commencing in 3 days, and a huge pile of work for me to get through!!!  This is what we have been up to the last couple of months ...

wishing for a dream holiday ...

living the dream holiday ...

too much time inside ...

fun in the rain ...
