Hi every one, I hope the start of your new year is off to a cracking start.

Obviously we have had an amazing start. Like my other children, our wee beastie, came on her own time. No consideration for her mama or her mama's plans, but I have always said our children have a double dose of stubborn!

So with out any further ado - here is our new addition...

On New Year's Eve, my cousins predicted that she would arrive on the 7th of January. Of course it has been stinking hot here this summer, and I was already over it by the end of the year, (OK I was over it  before Christmas, if I am honest!) the thought of another week made me even crankier than I was.

But true to their prediction, she did arrive on the seventh - and like most new mama's, all that discomfort + crankiness, faded away and was eclipsed by the miracle that is our Wee Beastie.

So, I have been rediscovering what it is like to have a new born in the house + so far so good, but for me it's usually the third week, just when you think you have it all under control, that it all goes to shit.

I love having paint on my hands!
I haven't managed much studio time, but the but the few times I have managed, it felt awesome to be there + to have the paint flowing.

And I have done heaps of sketching, in between feeding, + nappies. So creatively I am bursting with ideas + plans.

And hopefully that studio time will be easier to grab once we settle into a routine of sorts.

But in the meantime I am loving the time I am spending with the kids, and I am totally appreciating being more mobile and feeling like myself again!

So although I had planned on getting back into the swing of things this week. I decided to instead go with the flow and do what feels right.

But before I go, I wanted to say thank you to everyone for your well wishes, and amazing support. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.


I can't resist sharing this with you - she is just so damn cute.... ok, ok - I am so totally biased here!! I promise not to over whelm you with baby photos - well not to many!
