Ideas for Lazy Days

Life has been hectic lately, so I need to take a few moments and soak up some inspiration.
These treasuries are kind of like mood boards for the images and designs that are forming in my imagination at the moment.

I'd like to spend an entire day reading a really good book...

Or take a few friends on a quiet horse ride through the forest

A creative life depends on being able to balance unlimited creativity with periods of rest.
I need to find that balance.

Enchanted Garden

I've been crawling around the garden on my hands and knees looking for tiny subjects to photograph. This enthusiasm for macro photography is quite new and its been a surprise to find that my little camera isn't all that bad after all.... it can take pretty decent closeups. It's just everything else that it finds too challenging.

But horray for gift vouchers! For the first time in my life I won a substantial prize in a website design comp and I plan to put the winnings to good use. A decent DSLR camera has been on my wishlist for a very long time... so with a few more weeks of saving I will be able to go camera shopping!

In the meantime I'm reading alot and learning as much as I can about photography and I've made a promise to myself that I will actually read the manual before I use the camera this time ;)

There are just a few days left till my exhibition at the Coffs Harbour Bunker Cartoon Gallery closes on the 14th May. Then I'll be repacking all my prints and framed work and we'll be off to the sunday morning handmade markets in a couple of weeks where I'll also be showing my handmade jewelery collection 'Jasper and Pearl'.

Wish me luck!
