my creative space


Today I planned to avoid the siren call of Kirsty's My Creative Space... instead, here I am... just quickly to say hello and do a little (entirely understandable) procrastinating...

Tomorrow I am presenting at a conference, speaking in front of a (hopefully not too big) crowd... so my creativity is being focused on strategies to remember what I'm saying, to breathe and speak slowly, and to keep my hands from flapping so much I take off and fly away (maybe that's why they call it fight or flight??)...

The other part of my creative brain is finding little ways to keep a little person happy and calm today. The toilet roll forest, and the black felt "dirt", were actually her idea - I just helped with the fabric "leaves"...

Looking forward to popping in on a few of you today during my "study breaks" and having a better look around after the conference is finished!

i like the forest! Amelie made a family of toilet paper people, they actually look kinda cute.

deep breath & goodluck for tomorrow and if you get nervous... just think of the audience sitting there naked ;) (does that even work!?)

what a bunch of clever ducks you both are. What are you speaking on? are we allowed to know? is it top secret? will you have to shoot us?

Good luck tomorrow! You'll be fine! Just have complete confidence in yourself. You're a multi-tasking mother!

I'd love to know what you're speaking about? Toilet roll creativity? I guess not.

That forest is inspired. I love the simplicity of childrens' creativity sometimes. Best of luck with the presentation tomorrow.

Hope the conference goes well for you. As for your flea market find of last Saturday - oh my lordy - what an amazing find. That's got to be the best find EVER!
