Well it's that time of year when the kids are back to school and we're settling into our normal everyday routines. Sounds boring but when you look back on past years you'll notice that it's the everyday things that we treasure most. The simple things.
At the moment I'm at a bit of a crossroads deciding on what I want to do with myself this year. I'm contemplating looking for work outside of my photography business but not too sure what to do right now. I guess it'll come to me eventually though...I just need to get myself out there and put out some feelers.
In the mean time I'm still cleaning up after the school holidays and having everyone home for the past month. I tend to get stuck into projects when everyone is around me and I think I'll find if I look really hard that most of the cleaning up I have to do is mine! ;P
Last month at Scrap FX we had a 'free for all' where we could create projects with whatever we liked. This was great for me as I have so many favourite pieces stashed away that I couldn't decided what to use first! I decided on this gorgeous vintage telephone teamed with a photo of Rhiannon I took during a Pin-Up Girl photoshoot we had a while back. Isn't this little phone just adorable?
But...it suited my layout perfectly:
I'm not sure whether it's just that time of year or if I'm subconsciously changing as I get older but I've been doing a fair bit of soul searching these past few weeks. I've always been a bit of a 'quote girl'...I just love quotes. Sometimes they sum up exactly how you're feeling when you can't put it into words yourself. So when I stumbled across this quote I immediately got a canvas out and started painting, stamping and masking and created my very first Mixed Media project.
The quote is so beautiful yet so powerful:
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul. - Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
It just resonates so much with me right now!
