My Heart Weeps

I just can not fathom the evil that exists in our world.. I have felt sickened and cried. As a mother and grandma, I can't help but feel the deepest of sympathy for Jill Meagher's family.

May she rest in Peace.

Book Love

My mail man had a special delivery for me today, two wonderful books I have been waiting for.

One : by Victoria Alexander is a 'Sumptuous' book. The pages are divine. With thick paper and pretty raggedy deckled edges it is a book to treasure. But the most amazing part of this book is the wealth of wisdom, love and self valuing affirmations, heartfelt stories and delicious photography. 
One is not only for single people to enjoy but for anyone who appreciates the beauty of the written word and evocative imagery.  And through my Fishpond link in the right hand column you can order it for AU$27.95 with free shipping!!

My other book is, Raw Art Journaling: by Quinn McDonald.
I can't wait to steal a few spare hours to get stuck into this beauty. It has 128 pages of pure inspiration equally suitable for beginners or seasoned journal keepers. I Love it! It is only AU$21.24 with 'Free' Shipping from my Fishpond link in the right hand column here on my blog.

On canvas

My art 'Playmate' and good friend Jenny has inspired me to get messy on a canvas. She has made a stunning mixed media girl on canvas. Her results have made me determined  to have a try without allowing my 'fiendish' inner critic in on the project. This is still a WIP and there is much more to apply before I am satisfied. Here she is.

Sketchbook Girls

Drawing girls appears to be my favourite past time lately.
She gathered precious jewels from the rocky pathway
She plucked the feathers from a Phoenix
And she made herself a headpiece of Bravery.
: Me 

Brave Girls
Decorate your own soul instead of waiting for
Someone to bring you flowers.
:Veronica Shoffstall 
Sad Girls

And strange, strange girls...
