Still a pinch me moment and an update ...

Still a pinch me moment 3mths on.
That`s me just after coming of air at Hochanda after a sell out show, HEART full, emotional thinking of my Dad, holding it together telling him we did it!
Wishing he was still here to have seen this although I know he was right by my side in the studio giving me the courage to get it done!
(I`d asked him in the morning to please be with me and to bring all the family that`s beside him, lol)
Alex came right to me after for such a hug ... no words enough...a special moment and knew those I loved had watched along too, cheering me onwards.
When we left the studio in our wee wonky Citreon 2CV we had the roof back, pootling along looking upwards and what did I see ... a mouse in the clouds with wings pointing downwards with his loveheart nose, grinning and wee Betsy snuggled in his side, no kidding and in that moment I knew Dad was letting me know he was with me|! Tears, snot, laughter commenced as I said look Alex, look...I will hold that moment close and treasure forever.

Sooooo what`s been happening since, hmmm?

Glorious workshops, meeting the most beautiful souls along the way, friendships made, commisions, work, the time has flown past so quickly and I am getting.......
to tell you I`m working on new designs and not only will I have more wee one`s to share with you all
(they just keep dropping out my pencil with so much love and joy, messages in the clouds from Dad)
you will see your first 
"Just a Girl and Her Imagination"
with the help of my dad ever present in my thoughts and heart, they dropped out my pencil last year one after the other.
They have been ever so patient, quietly helping me, soul whispers getting louder saying it`s time ... time to let them share love and light to uplift and inspire.
Wont ever forget the feeling sat at mums kitchen table bringing them out of my imagination onto paper, thinking and missing my Dad beyond words, sun streaming through the window...the strangest thing happened ... no mistakes, one piece of paper each, no rubbing out...each just dropped out one at a serene, pretty and with the gentlest of smiles.
I call them Love and Light.
When I hear YOU ask? Finishing up commisions in the next few weeks then they will have my full attention ... ooohhhh which ones tooooo pick ......
Will keep you all updated I promise!

If your still here THANK YOU for reading my ramblings.

I will leave you with another wee video showcasing the lovely ladies who very kindly created such gorgeous samples for the show.
Forever grateful! 
 Wishing you all a magical weekend.
