Back into the reno today after a two week break. Finally feeling like myself and have enough energy to tackle painting after having the flu. Grateful for a beautiful daughter who, despite having the most boring school holidays ever (due to her mum and then dad getting the flu), said she had a good holiday πŸ’— Excited to get our home finished, although it will be sad to leave this beautiful little house. I know there are amazing things around the corner, waiting for us.

Oh hi πŸ‘‹πŸΌ it's been awhile. Renovations have gotten the better of me. I knew after we finished our home I would never want to live in another house whilst we renovated and boy was that instinct right! Apart from the mess, it's just highly disruptive for an introvert to have people all up in my space, alllll the time. Things have been quiet here for a few weeks, just me working away on little bits around the house and it's heaven πŸ™ So is having a bedroom again! It's all starting to come together! Today I'm just enjoying the quiet and appreciation for this little corner before I get stuck into a day of deck sealing. πŸ’™

Everywhere I look I see magic ✨🌈 (Which is a good thing seeing as two rooms in our house are being demo-ed this morning! πŸ˜‚)

It's been a little quiet around here lately (and when I say lately I mean the last six months or so πŸ˜‚). Maybe you've noticed? I'm in the midst of a big change in the direction I'm heading (life purpose-wise-and-all) and have been needing the quiet to navigate my way through.
I'm feeling like it's all starting to come together now. Feeling a little more confident in stating what my intentions are to y'all. And it's a new moon period so why not rein in some universal support πŸŒ™

What I really want to do right now is make spaces look and feel beautiful. 😍 Because when a space looks and feeeels amazing you do too right? I know I do πŸ™‹
The making spaces look beautiful part is going to be renovating tired, unloved homes. And the making spaces feel amazing part is working with the energy ✨in spaces. Because a space can definitely look good but not always feel good and there are so many levels to why this is so.

I'm going to take my time leaning into this, I know I've got a lot to learn and I'm really excited to dive into studies and also hone my skills to work intuitively.
Tell me though, would you like to come along this ride with me through IG? Does this interest you? 🌸

Heaven, from the few moments of sun today. β˜€οΈ Mother Nature not quite sure how she wanted to feel - sunny, cloudy, rainy, cold, warm(ish). β˜€οΈπŸŒ€πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§β˜€οΈIt's all about contrast. When sun shines after rain, we appreciate it so much more than we would after a week of sunshine. Contrast has shown up for us in other ways this week, letting us recognise what isn't for us and reconfirming what is. But if we hadn't tried something new, we wouldn't have known. I see you contrast and I thank you for the lesson. ✨

My printing superstars @the_craft_parlour block printing workshop today. Thank you for choosing to come spend the day block printing all the colours of the rainbow with me. ✨🌈

Samples for Saturday's workshop 🌸

New toys. Can't wait to play with these at Saturday's Block Printing workshop @the_craft_parlour Are you coming? We'll be using these gorgeous traditional Indian wood blocks along with making our own rubber ones to print onto beautiful linens and hemp/organic cottons. Just ONE ticket left, see the link in profile to book yours.

Block printing gives the most beautiful texture to a pattern. Every single time the stamp meets the fabric the result is ever so slightly different - depending on anything from the amount of ink on the stamp or the pressure with which it is applied. We'll be learning all the little quirks of this craft in less than two weeks @the_craft_parlour I'm so excited to see what everyone creates. I'll have all the colours of the rainbow ready for you to print up a storm 🌈
