take up the most room in your heart.”

Little Jars of Inspiration




I made these little jars for my daughters at Christmas. I tried various techniques to dye the glass blue (with very varying effects I have to say!) including glass paint, then filled them with inspirational quotes by Mary Anne Radmacher (one of my favourite authors) and decorated with a spring of ferm, cinnamon stick and raffia.

My associate!



I'm doing a piece of work which requires intense concentration at the moment so I am working at the bottom of the garden in 'solitary confinement' in 'the studio'!  But I have a furry associate


who likes to get 'up close and personal' and comfy when he's found just the right pile of paper (exactly what I am looking at usually!) to sit on.  He is a cutie nevertheless.

Thoughtful Sunday


Be brave enough to live life creatively. 
The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. 
You have to leave the city of your comfort 
and go into the wilderness of your intuition. 
You can't get there by bus, only by hard work and risk 
and by not quite knowing what you're doing. 
What you'll discover will be wonderful. 
What you'll discover will be yourself.
Alan Alda
