Buy the HOOP …

oh hoopy day

 

It’s been a busy few weeks what with Easter Bunnies and also a Family celebration at the weekend. Of course the most itchy and scratchiest of all happenings was/is the Chicken Pox!

It swept through our house a couple of weeks ago… took a week to chill out (somewhere in the ether!) before invading the two littlest of the little’ uns. In a word … scratchness!

So as you can imagine all ongoing project plans ground to a halt (literally speaking!) The children’s bedroom floor is half painted! All work came to a standstill with the return of the pox … so it’s back to higgledy piggledy upstairs again for a few more days ( what’s new? I hear my mother cry!!) 🙂

Due to lack of project updates or out ‘n about finds, I thought I’d share what has been getting my creative juices flowing of late!

I stumbled on this amazingly creative lady called Lucy Levenson on facebook. You can check her out on http://www.lucylevenson.com or Lucy Levenson Designs on Facebook. Her story is as touching as her artwork so if you have a minute go take a peek! I really love her use of colour and playful themes …This brilliant woman only took up sewing three years ago!

this gives me much inspiration and hope for my future!! 🙂

You can buy these in print form and are really affordable ..am definately going to buy one … might help me realise my Campervan dream sooner than later!!
