in the middle of February - a dream perhaps - well lucky for me I am home in Australia and my dream is reality for six months! Moving part-time to the other side of the world has been a fun but busy time - hence the reason for no blog posts!
A fresh start means the opportunity to change the style of our home we live in. During my many travels I had begun to fall in love with french country inspired furniture and accessories, so after arriving in Australia I set about finding stylish accents with rustic touches. Living in Queensland means casual living so I wanted a soft, relaxed setting. White is the symbol of simplicity and makes a room bright and airy so I have used a lot of white in the furniture as a backdrop and then arranged vintage french and country pieces to bring it all together. Below are a few photos of some of the bits and pieces I've collected.
It seems like such a long time since I have sat at my craft desk and created, I am definitely going through withdrawals! My focus has been on everything but crafting lately, but I am now feeling settled and look forward to spending time in in my new craft room. I am working at the moment (another huge adjustment) but am totally loving my job - fortunately it is in the scrapbook industry and I am looking forward to sharing more news on that venture with you soon!
Well my friends, I hope that has caught you up on a little of what's been happening in my life since November 2009. I am now looking forward to sharing my new Australian journey with you and of course continuing my crafting journey with you.
I am on a work road trip around Australia for the next week and a bit so no time for crafting but I look forward to sharing some new creations with you soon.
