alfalky Morning Melbournians! My friend @emilybesser has a painting show at @hut13 called 'Adventuresome things' Opening at 3pm today I believe? She is also the maker of my most favourite necklace, the one I wear almost everyday. Go on, get down to Richmond for a glass of wine and soak the colours in on my behalf? Ok, Thanks xxx 2d

alfalky Tinkering away over here.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned this already? But you're invited to join me for a workshop later this month with @gallerylanecove in Sydney. We'll be making small scale soft sculptures and I'll be sharing my favourite ways to get started and get making even when you don't know where to begin... And ways to make small actions accumulate into something substantial. A fun day of playing around with 3D forms.
If this sounds like you there is a link in my profile.

  •   haileybe I found that quote I wanted to share with you... 😀. "I am lost and I rejoice in the openness,
    I can not decide where to go,
    So for now, I will dance where I am and be. There is no goal, no destination,
    just wilderness and life and being.
    I sing and dance and live in the wilderness.
    I am home. " 2w

alfalky Presenting unfurl: a new zine to remind us that our tiny movements add up to something!

There is a limited run of 15, hand-sized, 8-page, hand-written and adorned zine full of inspiring colours, stitched fragments and comforting words. Perfect to keep close by, wherever it is you make your art-movements xx

They'll be joining me on my travels ('til they run out) or can be found online via etsy or the link on my website homepage if you fancy a copy!

alfalky Forever packing: one side 'art' one side 'life' - if only it were this delineated and ordered outside my suitcase! Oh the comedy of the introvert~nesting~inclined gal who gave up her home to pursue art.
Feeling like a naked caterpillar most days! But I've found a few essentials to create a tiny bit of home anywhere: favourite cup and fancy tea, tiny patterned cloth and homemade muesli... Do you have tiny rituals that help you feel at home when you're not?

  •   olgabennett I remember my experience of letting of home and going away for extended time... It was exhilarating for a while but then at some point I knew it wasn't working for me at all any more - I certainly not a nomad deep inside.... 3w
  •   melissajeangibson I like to bring my travel French press w/me & my favorite coffee - then all I need is hot water! 3w
  •   bonjourlalune A cuppa sounds more fun next time you're in Sydney, bring your mug and I'll get the teapot out @alfalky x 3w
  •   alfalky Oh, that's a great idea, I've got a one-shot mini coffee maker packed too, makes all the difference :)) @melissajeangibson 3w

alfalky Speaking of unfurling... In my next life I will be a whippet napping by the fire. 4w
  •   squirrilee @iamalchemy maybe a whippet would suit you more then a greyhound?.. 4w
  •   iamalchemy @squirrilee I do love whippets. My family had one when I was younger. But I've got my heart set on another Italian greyhound - they're teeny tiny! I love this little pooch, Alex! x 4w
  •   alfalky Oh he is the sweetest! They are both extra snuggly in the cold weather and with some household members away... Are you getting your greyhound soon!? And yes, I understand. you already know how I feel about tiny-ness :)) @iamalchemy 4w
  •   tinytrappings Yup! That's the life x 4w

alfalky unfurl. I love this word. How it feels. It's the opposite of forcing and rushing. It allows for the good stuff to happen. It's a series of small movements. It's expansive but gentle... I've been writing and writing and writing these last few days forming new workshops, re-arranging, re-focusing, re-jigging. I'm excited for my next adventure up north starting with #gathercreate.

Is there a word you love the sound of at the moment?

  •   alfalky @kellyazarb mm yep, I hear you. Xox 3w
  •   alfalky @spiderhouse oh! I've never heard of this word, how delightful. How did you discover it? 3w
  •   alfalky @_moho_ :)) you love the band!?? Hehee 3w
  •   spiderhouse @alfalky I first heard of the word Meraki in a post about words that don't exist in the English Language. (Meraki is a Greek word) It is the perfect intention word for almost everything I do. Look up the word Sonder too I think it's made up but it's beautiful 3w
