Steiner Waldorf Teacher Training - Middlewood

I recently went to Middlewood for a weekend of teacher training and felt so inspired. I loved what people had created there. It was lovely being out in nature and discovering how someone could make their dreams happen. Middlewood is an outdoor education centre, a farm, family home, beautiful countryside in Lancashire. I recommend a visit.
One day I'd love to set up my own school in tree houses!

Box of Tricks

This is my beloved box of beautiful items to make and create new things with. Who knows what's coming out next. They each have a mind of their own and shine even brighter than usual when they are ready to be woven with love.

Dance for Abundance!

Here's a video I made. It's choc full of affirmations for beauty and abundance. Play it, dance to it, believe that you can create your own world.

Today I made over £150 selling old stuff at a car boot sale. Getting rid of the old and making way for the new. It was sunny and busy and fun.

An Introduction to Rosie

I've been away for a couple of weeks doing some work on my narrow boat that I bought in January this year. This is a little peek of how the hard work is going! I've been completely gutting the inside since the floorboards were rotting, the insulation was rubbish and it needs a bit of love.

This is a view of the floor, I'm taking up the floorboards, ballast (concrete slabs) moved out the way, plastic lining kicked out and a lot of angle grinding the rust off the walls, floor and ceiling before a coat of red oxide paint goes on. Its dirty work and nothing like my usual handiwork! I've done most of the work so far myself and it feels really satisfying and empowering to be building my own home!
After a hard slog it finally looks better, rust, water and dirt removed and a nice coat of red oxide. Been practicing my blackboard drawing too for my Steiner teacher training! There is light ahead.

Paypal Faeries

I had a funny little synchronicity with this bracelet. I recently put a request out to the paypal faeries for a bit of cash. I wasn't sure if faeries existed on paypal so I asked for a small sign of their presence. I completely forgot about my request until I went walking with my dog to the post office with a little 'sale from etsy' package in my hand. I remembered that I had called this bracelet 'I Play with Faeries' for no particular reason, I just like making up names for my jewellery. I smiled as I remembered my request and realised that here was my confirmation that it had worked. Hurray for Paypal Faeries! There's definitely some faery energy in this one!
