Friday you little beauty πŸ’šπŸŒΏ
I am positively beaming from my morning spent in the fine company of the lovely @leafbykatie making gorgeous aromatherapy soaps using only totally natural ingredients.
The sunshine came along to join in the fun and now the studio is filled with the most stunning scents and aromas.
What a perfect gift to yourself or a lovely treat to give away for Christmas! If you missed out today, we've added another workshop, this time on a Saturday morning, to get you ready for Winter. Join Katie in the studio on the 9th December / 9:30 to 11:30 am and learn the recipes for these gorgeous home-made delicacies. Head on over to the website and book yourself in for a well-earned treat. .

Growth, change and choices are all part of life's rich tapestry.
The threads reach for us if we reach out for them.
We make and shape our every moment here and have way more power over this than we would sometimes like to feel responsible for.
The yin and yang of everyday life can throw out curveballs and surprises, no doubt.
But much of what happens to us and our experience of this is borne of the same seeds we sow each day.
So move with integrity- take heed of the way you weave and shape your words.
Be clear in your intentions and when you do 'put it out there' do so with thought, with care and with compassion.
If you really want to get the best out of life, put the best of you out there and your experience will ring to its echo.
We are all but branches, reaching out to connect.
Grow with love for Friday πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸŒΏ

My GC-YES-E booster class were on TOP form again tonight, working on technical accuracy, creating pattern and optical illusions with line. I love their responses - all so unique and a seamless synthesis between the inspiration they explored and their own unique styles. I'm thinking of launching a new, more general 9-16 class in January. If you have a young artist in need of some fresh thinking and a technical kick start pop me an email and I'll add you to our growing wait list. These lot are our designers, poets, philosophers and big thinkers of the future and it's such a joy to be a part of their journey βœ¨πŸ’›βœ¨ .

Meet the Tutor Thursday
How to find the words that really meet the mark for this absolute goddess?
Introducing the wonderful Ati, aka @surreyhillswellness - wellness and coaching counsellor, mindfulness practitioner and so so much more. Ati is an old old soul and wise as the hills. We met one day in a bar in lovely Dorking and we talked. And talked, and talked as minutes and hours flew by around us. Our conversation was so open, so flowing, I felt like I could tell her anything and yet that I knew her already! Over the last few months ati has become a dear friend, an advisor and has helped me through some tough times as a fledgling business owner. As an experienced counsellor and wellbeing coach she has helped me to be confident and to stay grounded when everything feels like it's up in the air. Just being in her aura is uplifting, calming and just makes you feel like everything is going to be ok. And we all need that in our lives, right? It's ok not to be sure sometimes, it's alright to be tired, taking a break is perfectly permissible and self-care is key. I have learnt this and so much more from this wonderful lady. So I'm delighted that she will be joining us for our last #artandmind of the season on the 28th November. She'll be offering a super special sensory meditation session using mindfulness techniques that incorporates sound, scent, taste, movement and touch to find calm, focus and help you feel grounded. As we crank up the pace in the lead up to the festive season, it's so important to make time to check in with ourselves. So pop on over to @surreyhillswellness feed and follow her regular updates for advice on just being human. And click the link in bio if you'd like to join us for her very special meditation session coming soon. βœ¨πŸ•Šβœ¨

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times if one only remembers to switch the light on...πŸ’‘
Lightbulb moments for my #beginners sketchbook club class this morning exploring soft tones with pencil to record minute detail. The most important revelation? It has to be taking your sweet time to achieve these really stunning studies. We spent at least 45 minutes listening to calming music and getting our heads in the right (and I mean this in many ways) mode for drawing. Make time for a bit of meditative drawing. It's certainly made my day β›…οΈπŸŒ€β˜€οΈ

Wellbeing Wednesday
Let there be light on the dark days, let there be warmth, kindness and compassion.
This week's theme is aromatherapy. Our sense of smell can evoke so much in us. It can conjure memories, emotions, take us back to the past but also help us to stay present. Scents can be healing, make us feel safe, calmer and have a huge impact on how we feel in the environment we create.
We are lucky here at SAS to have a few experts in this field to support your wellbeing and some gorgeous workshops on the horizon to help you to immerse yourself in this kind of self-care. This season the lovely @leafbykatie has two fantastic workshops on offer- Aromatherapy Soap making for #feelgoodfridays this week and a lovely Winter Scented Candle workshop on the 1st December. We'll also be joined by mindfulness coach and wellbeing guru @surreyhillswellness for our last #artandmind of the season on Tuesday 28th November. She'll be running a really special workshop using guided meditation and mindfulness to explore ALL the senses (scent, sound, taste, movement and touch). If you need a little help coming to your senses, let our wellbeing wizards light your way. For more info follow the link in bio. Photo credit: @leafbykatie .

The studio is absolutely BEAMING with light and warmth tonight whilst the soft tones of @anebrun warble across the room. This our safe and soothing space for a beautiful mindful meditation and Mandala making workshop led by the ever so gentle @full_circle_art πŸ’›I'm so looking forward to getting lost in our lovely #artandmind class tonight, safely tucked away from the rush of the outside world to soak up this light and energy. If you all you did was put your hand on your heart and wish yourself well, it would be a moment well spent..βœ¨πŸ•Šβœ¨

What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter - a soothing and calming influence on the mind rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue ~ Henri Matisse.
In a time of information overload, of harsh realities and cold hard facts, Matisse's words really resonate with our philosophy of using creativity take a little break from the daily aches and strains of humaning. There is nothing wrong with a spot of escapism, of getting lost in the realms of our imaginations - where life can be simpler, gentler and provide a small refuge from a sometimes difficult reality. Engaging in creative activities has the potential to alleviate stress and depression and can serve as a vehicle for alleviating the burden of chronic disease. It can also flick a switch in our mindset, allowing us to focus on the beauty, rather than the bleakness of our surroundings. Creativity can be a calming voice, a quiet moment, a meditation, a comfy chair, a warm hug.
If you're looking for the emergency exit, let your imagination carry you away for Tuesday πŸ’šπŸŒΏ

I had so much fun in the studio yesterday creating more lovely #winterprints for our lovely local @handpickedfordorking Christmas fair this coming Saturday in Dorking. I'll have a limited stock of these, plus some handmade Christmas cards and prints available on my stall on the day. We also have some lovely 'Sunday School' workshops coming up on the 19th and 26th November where you can come, drink tea and craft in our peaceful studio and make your own Lino cut cards and monoprints for the festive season. Tis the season to come in from the cold, make a cuppa and make beautiful things to light up the dark days. Link in bio my beauties πŸ•Š

Hello sunshine β˜€οΈ What will you make of today?
Will it be cloudy with sunny spells or sunny with a sprinkle of cloud?
I have to say there's a fair bit of pressure in the barometer of my mind this morning.
You know those days when you wake up early thinking and because you're half asleep you end up sinking into the chaos of your own thoughts?
Mine were whizzing around the week, jumping from Monday, to Wednesday to Saturday and back again.
So I'm up a little earlier than normal to get my head straight and fit in some time to meditate.
The untrained mind can run circles around us. It can whip up a storm, draw in the clouds and stop us thinking clearly about the here and now.
All that really serves us is this moment.
This Monday.
This now.
The rest is just fiction and may never even happen. Our thoughts can be just as unreliable as the forecast πŸ˜‰
So start your Monday mindfully, rather than with a full Mind. Close your eyes for a moment, focus on your breath and clear those clouds.
You'll find you day to be brighter, breezier and so much easier if you get your mind in check.
Happy Monday peoples πŸ•Š

Slow rolling into a gorgeous sunny Sunday in the beautiful Surrey Hills. It's wellies, a walk and then some winter printing for me today. I'll be warming up the rollers and making some of my own cards and gift tags for the @handpickedfordorking Christmas fair next weekend and getting ready for our first seasonal print workshop next Sunday. Sounds like work but never feels so much like it these days. I've been thinking a lot this weekend about setting your own pace. I'm becoming so much more mindful about making space for breaks in the routine to get some fresh air and move my bones. If I ever hit a creative wall, a little wander is the perfect remedy. Overdoing it can suck the joy out life.
So there you have my Sunday musings. Wishing you all a wonderful weekending out there, remember to make a little time to take it easy too πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸŒΏ
