"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Inspiration and Ironman

It's been a while since my last post! I lost my inspiration and motivation for a few reasons. After numerous attempts at making soft toy bunny rabbits for my nieces and nephew for Easter, I had to give up. I hate giving up, but they looked terrible! Every time I finished one, my husband laughed at it! So my confidence took a bit of a battering! Rabbit making is clearly not my thing!

My other reason for losing inspiration was the state of my sewing area. It got so out of control with fabric scraps, ric rac, ribbon, thread, buttons and the like that I just couldn't look at it anymore! Soooo I spent one whole rainy day cleaning it- fabrics are all ironed, sorted into colours and boxed and all my other bits and pieces have their own little compartment.  And now I feel ready to start creating again.

But not this weekend as I am off to Port Macquarie to watch my brother compete in an Ironman event. Really looking forward to it. You can read all about his ironman journey HERE if you are interested.

In the meantime, here are a couple of snaps of my little girl in her Easter dress. So colourful!

And one with my brother the Ironman. GO JONO!!!!!! xxxx
