I have a Cold!

So I have stopped making and guess what I have a cold this what happens when you start to relax you get poorly. Its not been has hard as I thought doing nothing creative. I'm busy looking after my baby so I cant do anything until he goes to bed at 7.30, at the moment this is not a problem as I am having time out from my creative world. I shall be busy this afternoon walking a cute little dog which i am doing for a friend while she is away. The weather is nice today the sun is shinning so it will be good to get some fresh air. I ordered a Labradorite crystal for myself which came yesterday, I bought it to help with my insecurities as it happens it also good for calming the mind and helps with colds and allot more but what a coincidence. I have lots more crystals I'm in the process of creating a crystal rainbow outside the front door from a book I have by Mary Lambert great book. Enjoy your day.

Time to Stop.

I have decided to not create anything for a while and take time out! My head is always so busy with ideas sometimes I cant sleep, I'm going to find this very difficult as I feel I should be doing something what it is I'm not sure. So I try different things and get bored and move onto something else. I have projects that I have started and not completed. I buy things and don't even open the box. My background is fine art my medium is drawing so I thought I would clear out items that are not related to this and stop hoarding them. I am a Spiritual person and would like create work relating to this, I love Mandalas I have made a few of these. I'm learning to Meditate and I enjoy working with crystals. So I hope this will help me. I love working with colour so maybe create something along these lines. It maybe during this time that I should just write down things and see what happens.

Can I have an Allotment please.

I'm so excited I have put my name down for an allotment. The plan is to keep chickens and grow some vegetables. There has been an increase over the last few years for keeping an allotment so I am on a waiting list. Also I am limited as to where I can go as not all allotments allow you to keep poultry. Its all new to me and very exciting I cant wait. I keep going up to show interest and see what other people do with theirs. Oh and I have met some very very interesting people. Its a whole new world!

From Bed Frame to Bench.

My daughters boyfriend made this bench from an old bed frame found on the side of the road. It took him a few hours to make and my daughter painted it with wood varnish. It looks great. I'm going to make a funky cushion to go on it.

Sunflowers? no Pumpkins Galore!

Here are my pumpkins that I planted, grown from seeds I collected from last year. I did not intend to have so many. Last year I collected the pumpkin seeds put them in tinfoil to plant this year. I threw loads of the seeds into the soil thinking they were Sunflower seeds! (I have no idea why I thought they were Sunflower seeds).
I threw them down by the trellis and netting hoping to see a glorious display of flowering 6ft Sunflowers! No I now have about 20 pumpkins growing I think its great. I have loved growing these oh and I when i collect the seeds they will be clearly marked.

Three stages of Pumpkin growth!

One of my many Pumpkins.
Gardening Tip! I read in a Gardening paper that to stop Pumpkins or other large vegetable's rotting in soil is to put hay underneath them.

My Greenhouse

This is latest addition to my garden, my Greenhouse. I don't have much growing in it at the moment as I had set seeds at an earlier date.

Hoping to return to these very soon depending if my little one allows me the time!. Well I was going to write a bit more but he needs feeding so I will catch up later............
