Cheers to a creative 2016!

Better late than never- I just wanted to kick off this month’s makers Monday showcase before January blurs past us all. I will try and post one of these at the beginning of each month but I think I get a free pass after the soul-sucking holiday season (I think I drank my weight in Chardonnay).

Above are detail shots from a commission I’m working on for a lovely blog pal in the USA. She’s recently separated from her husband, moved cross country, and started a new career. She wants her space to reflect the incredible (and I think brave) changes she is making in her life. Though she blogs about serious health issues I am constantly in giggle fits from Rachael’s Facebook posts. She has even inspired me to write a healing and confronting post on my blog in response to one of hers.

I hope you like it girlfriend. More to come.
