Creativity lost; Creativity found

I started this blog with the aim to extend my creativity in my everyday life and force myself to experiment with different approaches to Illustration and Art. Sadly, time has forsaken me… But as I reflect upon this, I realize that while I may not have been pro-actively creating my own Art – I am constantly surrounded by creative forces that enhance my world.

So what have I been doing over the last few months that has quenched my creative thirsts?

1. I learnt how to sew a Bra at Booby Traps.

This was a really fun day! Even though I didn’t finish the bra that I was making, it was a good experience to have!

2. I have been over-sharing on Instagram



I seem to have an array of photos of the food that I eat and the clothes that I wear…..!

3. I have gone on an #epictrip2012 to Wales, London and Paris

Seeing the sites, shopping and eating wonderful food was a creative expression in itself! I went to all the galleries that I could and admired the array of street art! It was an amazing 3 weeks!

4. I got engaged!

Hidden in my suitcase when I was overseas and engraved with “Will you Marry Me?”

5. I have been guiding my Year 12 students to HSC success

This is probably one of the things that has most taken the creativity from me! I have been giving it to others!!! But, I am very proud of them!

My classroom!

So where does this leave me now?

Well…. I have decided to experiment with some Jewelry making and am quite pleased with the progress that I have made!

Here is a sample of my necklace, now available on ETSY!
