Wet Bunnies!

It's true...Bunnies don't like rain!
And neither do I!
Jax has been desperate to get her rain gear on and go hunt for eggs, however...
Chocolate doesn't like rain either,
So we're postponing the hunt until tomorrow.

Instead Jax is busy making and creating,
and I'm trying to make a dent in my craft room.

Spring Cleaning indeed!!!
I can nearly make it back to my table!
After moving everything out of my dining and living room to host our re-launch, and then moving the SHOP back into the craft room..
It's gone a bit mad hatters in there!
I had closed the door and vowed to give myself some time off but just can't seem to do it...
My fingers are itchy!

So whilst I have nothing new to show you,
I did come across something old that me thinks needs a revisit!
My much loved Winsor & Newton travel watercolour set!

(obviously this isn't's far too clean!)

Oh how I remember the days of traveling around beautiful villages, luscious islands and everywhere in between. Stopping when my muse gave me a tug (and sometimes a thump) sitting at cafes and on the pavement to capture a moment.
Oh the Bliss of it!

Don't get me wrong..I Adore photography and cannot live without digital...and have even been known (gasp) to paint from my pictures as I was in too much of a hurry to stop! But having found my stash of postcard size paintings amongst the paint supplies...I cannot help but love the organic, fresh, sometimes hurried and childlike quality to some of my work. It gives me hope to what I could create if I actually put some time and concentration to it.
But for now stolen moments are enough.

So I'll leave you with a few to judge for yourself, and Jax and I will go steal a moment in the rain after all!!!
