GREAT THINGS ARE DONE BY A SERIES OF SMALL THINGS BROUGHT TOGETHER
It used to be all about MY birthday.
(October is birthday month in my house.)
Then I went and ruined it by having a baby in October so...it's all about Indigo's birthday right now. Actually we've been counting down since August. #MumLife
Birthdays for me is always a time of looking back at the past year.
If you've been following me on Instagram - you may have heard.
Big things happened and now I'm in a season of rest. Not by choice. But it's something my body, soul and heart needs.
It's something I hope to share with you in the future, but right now, I'm still very much IN the forest. (so apologies for the vague mysterious sharing, but for now I'm resting in my privacy)

Incidentally, as much as I'm retreating within to be alone and to heal - I've been surprised to rediscover that I'm surrounded by loving friends and family. I'm well supported and I thank you for all the love!
So this season of rest, as I'm taking gentle steps with myself. I'm reminded again and again that it's the small things that make up the great big things.
I'm still creating - I have a couple projects that I want to finish before 2016 ends. Drawings to finish, paintings are calling from the canvas and a drawing workshop to create. (I'll email you details to learn more soon!)
I'm still in my studio and my schedule is still the same.
I'm consciously being gentle, in flow and taking my sweet time.
When I'm feeling the urge to hustle and work work work (cos... hello! This mama ain't got time to waste!) -- this quote reminds me to slow down.
It reminds me that there IS power in the small things to add up to the big things. Big moments that I'm dreaming of are created one baby step at a time.
(You can see that my new paintings have a lot of intricate details and linework that relates to this -- step by step, small marks add up to create a huge impact and visual texture)
MAY THIS WALLPAPER ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE THE STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE TO CREATE YOUR GREAT THING. BIG OR SMALL.
