all change!

Well, apologies for my lack of updates and responding to comments! I've been so rushed packing, sorting through and getting rid of all the useless things I've been carrying round with me for years. I think I've moved house 7 times in the past 4 years and I decided it was time to let go of a lot of things. This move really counts as 2, as I am moving, but also my parents are, so the things which I though could remain in their loft can't anymore. So it's all been sorted and thinned down. It's all quite liberating really!

I actually move on Tuesday, so won't be around until after then. It's all coming together now, so I'm a lot more excited than nervous about it now!

See you in Edinburgh :D

avoiding the issue

Why, when you know there are important things you have to do, do you find anything you possibly can to do to avoid it!? The thing I need to do...??....sort my stuff out and start packing for the move. I've done nothing so far. Well, that's not strictly true. I have realised I won't be able to paint once I leave here, until I find somewhere of my I started some paintings! A large self portrait and also some tiny (3x3 inch) collaged paintings. I have also, this very second, realised I shall also be without sewing machine and piles of fabric. The ability to make a new dress whenever I fancy shall be taken away. Perhaps I should draw up some designs and get started on some new ones immediately?? I still have three weeks to pack after all.


I have also been thinking that I may need to put the etsy shop to rest whilst I stay with my sister. I'm not quite sure how it's going to work out out otherwise. Such a shame as I've really only just got started with it! But without my computer things may get a little difficult. But it would only be temporary....if at all! watch this space I guess!
