Taking a wee break...

... from Blogland, as I retreat for the next couple of weeks with Susannah Conway...


Hoping I'll return renewed and invigorated...

Decided to share with Focus on Life as I am hope-full - this week's theme :-)

Focus on Life Week 46: Faith(ful)

One thing I have faith in is Family.

Here's ours from a family holiday in Yorkshire 12 year ago!! My dad's taking the picture ;-)
Yes, A LOT has changed in 12 years, but the deep bonds between us haven't...

Word for the Week

Last week was a tad manic, so I didn't draw a Word for the Week - I needed to stay with Peace...

Hoping this week is calmer, I draw this from my Rediscovery Pack



Ahhh, this is a watchword for me! This is what to I strive to be in everything I do - from writing on this blog, to what I read, listen to, how I interact with people...

I hate anything fake - from people to handbags - but I love raw, authentic honesty. Hence I buy most gifts from Etsy rather than Ebay, listen to folk like Damien Rice rather than some manufactured pop boy band. It's why I seek out a local independent coffee shop, rather than Costa of Starbucks, why I read magazines like Flow and Uppercase, instead of Hello!

The rich, deep pink background has appeared a number of times on other Words for the Week - Love, Hope, Opportunity, Support - which seems fitting. There is a definite connection between all these powerful words!

I'll leave you with some great quotes about Authenticity, and my heartfelt wishes for a wonderful week :-)

Focus on Life Week 45: Grateful

November's prompts from Sally are words ending in '...ful'

I have soooo many things I am grateful for (I write down at least 5 every day...), so I figured I needed to make a collage...
