As this year wraps up it's hard to believe the amount of experiences one goes through to get to this point. I think that's why there is a beginning and an end so that you can start afresh and put things to bed or relive them in a positve way, drawing apon the experience. Either way I think negative or positve, our year's experiences bring us opportunity.
This post is beginning to sound vaguely like last years post too!
To save you dejavu - I'll stop!
This year has brought with it, fruits of my labour and many more things. Specifically people! Doing what you love and enjoy surrounds your with people not unlike yourself. This I am grateful for. FABRIKATION WORKSHOP has done just this!! a fledgling idea, encouraged and nurtured by 2 very good friends who have been there form it's inception. Girls I 'Thank you', and ladies who've taken part since, I continue because of you!!! We have such a great time in our workshops and it has been one of this years joys, to witness the growth, confidence and skills of these women whom I consider friends. A true honour when another person puts you in the teachers' seat and asks you for guidance - albiet, where to put your needle next - it's all relevant to me!
So there you have it - Sewing anyone?
It's not just for the skills it's for the personal make over and rewards that have ensued.

Moving on and Up

It has been a while since my last post, and on looking through blogs of others I find that they too have times of absence.
Cyberspace is a form of safe place or friend where you can express yourself and share.
Like a good ol' friend you can pick up where you left off and nothing seems to change.
This year has thus far, been a great and creative one - documentation of this maybe not so much as we all get caught up in the throws of life and it's ways. I am no exception here!!
Being with and sharing these moments makes memories that create meaning too - Life itself, as also in death always brings perspective and conscientiousness.
I wish you all and your families well and hope you are creating memorable moments together... Living and experiencing each moment as it comes.
Dedicated to my Aunt Grace Jean Hunt
- forever in my thoughts and creative adventures xoxo

Lots has been happening since omg - July!! I can't believe it's been that long! It's not like I have been sitting still but can sheepishly say that I spent a lot of 2011 worrying about things??? Go figure and isn't hindsight a beautiful bitch of a thing.
Venturing forward it seems I have acquired more skills in the realms of fancy, that being the ability to let things go....!

Some days you just cannot do anything about circumstances but accept them and then remarkably they go away (or at least make more sense and don't seem so glaringly bad). There's a lot to be said for analysing things too much..something both my Father and partner tell me frequently. Begrudgingly I tell you this because I enjoy the breaking down of things - and more recently my sis' Jessie Jean stated that I've always liked, if not seek, a challenge. This would have to be true I suspect - recapping 2011..

~ I continued sewing sporadically - loosing my mojo through distraction in the beginning of the year;
~ Some Markets here, some markets there -  too scared to dive into the Markets I really wanted to be apart of - over thinking things here at the time that is < restless!!
~ All the while courting a career in Tupperware and getting off to a screaming start. It seems that I am a natural! Who knew?!
~ Creativity took a back seat while I tackled at conquered the world of plastic, promoting myself to Manager and achieving a company car all within 6 mths...but
...missing the stitching, aching for the fabric stash...
~ Now I possess every gorgeous piece of Tupperware I could want (much to Andrew's chagrin, we need more storage; bigger home please!)

and now because I fear that I will go on and bore the pants of you, a skip, hop and jump to 2012 and I've slowed down the tupps after 14mths to make way for Miss Ava's weekly social program; Playgroup, Kinder, Ballet, Mother's Group, Swimming and Art Classes plus playdates...and now, My very own teaching workshops - FABRIKATION WORKSHOP is born! I have been meeting the most wonderfully chickaroonies! We all love to craft, never have enough time for ourselves and well have kiddie winks. The ol' fashion stitch'n'bitch is back and I'm loving it more then ever!

Next semester - Preschool Art Classes and FABRIKATION 'JNR' WORKSHOPS! I'm back on the wagon and oh so grateful for the perspective after some trial and errors of past - bring it on!!
