Inspiration Injection

My poor little blog has been neglected lately.  Which is a pity, because I quite enjoy posting here.  But there is just so much else going on.  So much to do.  So many platforms to manage.  So many balls to keep in the air.

Well this morning I had the best infusion of inspiration.  I made my morning coffee, and sat and flicked through Kevin Russ' Instagram account.  Kevin travels the USA, sleeping in his car, and taking the most spectacular pics, all on his iPhone.  I am already a big fan of iPhone photography, and  now I just want to pack up and drive around Australia and sleep in my car taking photos of everything that catches my eye, instead of looking out the window thinking 'I would love to stop and take that photo...'.

From now on I'm going to stop more.
And take the backroads (Well, if you had seen the state of my car lately, you would know I already do that).
And post more photos.

There is a great little video on Vimeo of Kevin's work.  Watch it, and I bet you will be inspired too!!

Tuesday 23rd September 2014

This little dog loves his kids.  Because it is the school holidays they have been carting him all around the countryside.  Yesterday they went to the shops and left him behind and he cried.  Today they tried to leave him behind when they rode in to town to get milk, but he wasn't having any of that. They turned around to find him running down the road behind them.  Not good obedience perhaps, but how could you get cross with that face!?!

Oh, how cute are these two!  I asked Ciaran if he would hold Ruby for a minute while I went inside and put dinner on, and this is what I could see out my kitchen window.  Ruby was much happier playing with Ciaran than coming out and working with me afterwards!!

Today was the first day back out with the horses after the cold, wet winter.  I had the two cutest little helpers out pampering the ponies with me!!

A couple of Sunday's ago I decided to start a new family tradition. I named it Sunday Mini Road Trips!  The kind of lets get in the car and go to 'wherever'!  For our first mini road trip, I made the suggestion at 12pm that we get in the car and go for a drive to fed square for the afternoon.  So we did!  Made some sandwiches and hot chocolates for the hour drive in.  Had a look at a craft exhibition that was on, mosied through the art gallery bookshop, had a beer (well, we did, kids were obviously happy with lemonade) in the rather delicious bar in there, took some cool snaps, got in the car, and drove home again!  Successful afternoon all round.  Didn't cost the earth.  And it felt spontaneous and fun!  Now I am thinking of all sorts of places we can go on future Sunday Mini Road Trips….

PS  And I found a crocheted car!  BONUS!!

Oh, I love hanging out with creative people.  It inspires me, and I can't wait to get home and work on my own stuff!!  On Friday we called in to see Steph at Ginkoh Jewellery in Torquay.  Steph makes the coolest, quirkiest pieces out of just about anything she can find, from spoons to spiders.  And she is passionate about it!  I love it.  You can check some of her work on her Facebook page here… Ginkoh Jewellery.
