It’s a lightness of touch that belies the firm grip on the basket; when ‘pick your own’ is more of a direction than an invitation...

[la BELLEZZA dell'essere piccolo] 🌱
Sono stata sempre la "piccola": l'ultima di 4 figlie, la piccola nei gruppi, tra gli amici, e ancora oggi mi dicono :"ma sembri così piccola" 😅. Non é una cosa che amo sentirmi dire perché piccolo é sinonimo di debole, di qualcuno da proteggere, di qualcuno che sarà sempre dipendente da un altro, ed io in questa teoria ci sto stretta. Dimentico spesso però che tutto ciò che é piccolo é capace di grandi cose, una stella, un bozzolo, un seme, piccoli ma pronti a tutto, forse proprio grazie alla loro piccolezza. Su, aiutatemi anche voi a ricordare tutto ciò che é piccolo ma é destinato a grandi cose.

Friendship isn't about who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you" and proved it.

Nearly 34 weeks. Alex and the girls love talking to my belly, because whenever they do the baby wriggles and kicks, as if he loves the sounds of their voices 🤗 I really feel like he might come early.. it’s crazy to think that in the next 6 weeks we are going to be a family of 5! 👩🏻🧔🏻👧🏼👧🏻👶🏻

I'm waiting for a silent hour to gather myself, I have a painting to finish, but have a problem with concentration while a small bee is buzzing around me. She's got a flute, this bee😂

So sorry for the silence! I'm in the middle of moving house right now but I hope to get some more shoots lined up next month in time for my exhibition at @dsuperstore ! V exciting. I'm tempted to just put these ones side by side in a trio I heart them so. ( #📷 @queernift )

Yesterday. Relaxing on the dock after a full day of glazing and firing.

It's #weddingwednesday

We have serious heart eyes over this image form one of our recent shoots with @emmapharoahphoto - we are all about that natural light and muted tones! More of this goodness coming soon!

It’s kind of crazy to think this family of three will soon become four ♡
Just two weeks after our wedding day we flew back to Sydney and put a tiny embryo back into my belly.
And now that little embryo is a baby growing and kicking away.
The whole IVF process still blows my mind.
How crazy is this little old life sometimes, right?

This weeks art project was about the weather.. obviously. Based on a little project I did with my students a couple weeks ago, we decided to go even bigger back at home. Also, decided to do something a bit new today so you could really see my weather word in all its glory. How is my stop motion action? Do you like it? I think the imaging would have been better were we on a completely white wall rather than set on our sofa, but hindsight... ya know? *

Vi insegnerò a guardare la bellezza del sole che scompare all'orizzonte e ad aspettare le stelle che piano piano fanno capolino.
Vi insegnerò a fare il letto anche se adesso tu, Clotilde, lo disfi sempre per infilarti ad ogni ora del giorno.
Vi insegnerò ad assaggiare ogni frutto, ogni pietanza, ogni delizia affinché voi possiate decidere quale fa per voi.
Vi insegnerò a non avere paura di nulla, il coraggio rende liberi.
Vi insegnerò ad amare, prima se stessi e poi tutto ciò che vi circonda. A sorridere al mondo intero.
Vi insegnerò ad essere leali, sempre. Senza sotterfugi e giochetti meschini.
Vi insegnerò che il sacrificio e il costante e duro lavoro portano molto lontano e riempiono il cuore di soddisfazione.
Vi insegnerò tutto quello che è #nellamianatura

Would you look at the ivy growing out from under the front door?! I wonder what it’s like on the inside. If this house was mine I’d show it so much love and affection it wouldn’t know what to do with itself! 😍

Almost Midsummer: I love this last stretch of the summer term, when the days are long and hot, and the children are reaching towards those hazy, endless summer holidays with arms outstretched, and you can almost feel them growing up before your eyes... I’m not particularly sentimental about motherhood, but these are the days that I treasure with all my heart...🌿

There are moments on this writing journey when I feel invincible, and there are other moments where I’m flailing around, feeling overwhelmed with the whole thing. This week my hormones are sending me crazy!
Spending time tending my plants really helps though. What’s your favourite way of feeling like yourself again?

Last month Jane, from @snapdragonstudiouk sent me one of her Snapdragon Studio Boxes.
.
I was overwhelmed by the contents of this box. It’s all that is great about a small business.
.
As I sat down to work with the contents of the box, the feeling that has been bubbling away in the back of my mind for some time, began to take hold.
.
A realisation that in spite of spending all day creating for work, I no longer spend enough time creating for sheer pleasure and joy.
.
It feels somehow too extravagant, making with no business goal or purpose in mind. It’s totally crazy because the mental benefits are unquantifiable.
.
In truth there is nothing more joyful than the gentle meditative pleasure of creativity for pleasure and I am going to make more time for it.

Went on a great fartlek run today and am v happy so thought I'd share 🏃‍♀️😊 In case you don't know what that is and think it has something to do with farts (it doesn't), fartleks are runs involving a bunch of different paces--the one I've been doing since high school is 4 sets of 10 mins where each 10 mins is 4 min steady state, 2 mins tempo (80% effort), 3 mins recovery, and 1 min interval (mile race pace). Would highly recommend!

“And did those feet in ancient time, walk upon England’s mountains green”⠀

Did you know that Edward IV was imprisoned in Warwick Castle by Richard Neville, the Kingmaker? Neville was then killed fighting against the King during the Wars of the Roses. Yes, I am a total history geek. It’s one of the things I find hardest about living in Oz - the lack of cobblestoned streets, ancient monuments and centuries of stories. In other news, I’ve come down with a sore throat, and as someone who used to get tonsillitis every year, that always scares me. So I’m going to wrap up warm, dose myself up with ibuprofen, drink copious amounts of tea and rewatch The White Queen. Wish me luck!

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is my belief.”
- Franz Kafka
.
.
Let’s face it, the best books are those that cause tears to flood down our cheeks. They make our chests ache and leave us hollow, not knowing how life can continue now that the story had ended. These are the books we never forget.
.
.
What was the last book that made you feel this way?

This is her, “mummy, why have you stuck a camera in a box on the ceiling” look. Also when I bought the hats from @primark, the checkout lady asked me if we were going on holiday. I said, no, we’re just taking photos with them 😂 Back at home, Lily proceeded to dent her hat. Saying that, we are planning on a summer holiday. I got the kids passport photos done at @snappysnaps_uk the other day. That was interesting! Tyler was easy, but getting a photo of Lily made me sweat! And when we did get a photo where she was looking, we realised her hair was too big, so we needed to buy some serum and a brush to flatten it 🤣 We got there in the end though. Are you going on a summer holiday this year?

Creative confidence can be elusive, fleeting - difficult to hold onto. We can so easily doubt the things we create - particularly when it comes to sharing them with others. .
.
.
And yet, through this confidence we can discover a greater sense of joy in making things; and possibly more than that - we can use that feeling to empower us in other areas of our lives. I love the way I feel after I've made something - proud and capable, like the best version of me.
.

How does being creative make you feel?

We all need to hear words of life poured onto us! My little Ashley’s love language is words of affirmation. ...this letter is one I’ll treasure always 💕. There was much to juggle when all the kids were little. But, it starts getting even more rewarding as they get older and you can see the admiration in their eyes for you as a mom in a tangible way. #happykissthankyou

Bedtime was hard last night. Steph usually reads the girls their story while I clean up from dinner. So when I walked them up to bed and lay down with them to read a story, Emmie started crying. I can usually handle the over dramatic toddler cry {you know the one}, but this one was real, and very sad. So I cried with her. We lay in bed together cuddling and our bedtime routine went up in a ball of flames. So today I’m posting one more picture of us with our guy in the background, because we miss him soooo terribly 💔

[Notizie dal LabScrivania]
🌺
Stamattina la sveglia é suonata presto per anticiparmi un pò con il lavoro (poi i bambini si sono svegliati dieci min dopo, ma questa é un'altra storia😅). Sto modellando fiori di carta (vedi stories) che diventeranno gioielli da indossare. "Ma come usi la carta, ma davvero? E poi non si rovina? E che consistenza ha?" sono domande che spesso faccio fatica a rispondere così, a distanza, ma vi assicuro che la carta si trasforma sul serio, non é fragile ma diventa forte. "Si, ma si rovina subito", si rovina solo se non ce ne prendiamo cura, un pò come tutti gli oggetti, un pò come tutti i rapporti, un pò come le persone🌷

I took this photo on my morning run two weeks ago. The morning run, it’s become such an important part of my routine. It gives me time to think and it helps me feel energised and refreshed. It adds to my personal Heiterkeit (cheerfulness). What gets your day off to a good start? ……………………………………………………………………………..
Dieses Foto habe ich vor zwei Wochen während meinem morgendlichen Run aufgenommen. Am Morgen laufen zu gehen ist mittlerweile Teil meiner Routine geworden. Es gibt mir Zeit zum Nachdenken und ich fühl mich danach erfrischt und voller Energie. Es trägt zu meiner Heiterkeit bei. Was hilft dir dabei, den Tag gut zu starten?
