☆ Round Here [life in the Mac house hold]

Round here we've been..

...drawing hundreds of pony pictures for little girls to colour in
...building scarecrows to stop the birds from eating all our strawberries
[but not succeeding!]
...grabbing some very precious studio time
...playing 'Sally' from nightmare before christmas
...settling in to our new family dynamics...
...being inspired by everything + anything + sketching it all down...
I have had an amazing start to the new year. And I have been greedily soaking up every single relaxing moment + I have not felt the slightest bit guilty about it.

I have been asking myself 'In this Moment - what do I really feel like doing right now?'

And often the answer isn't what I thought it would be + it definitely isn't what I should be doing.

And it is so freeing.

But now I want to start doing a few of the 'I should's' because I have such big plans + ideas for 2013.

Sometimes you don't feel like doing what you'd planned, but the rewards are totally worth it.

And I want to start moving my dreams into realities.

Sometimes though it is worth having a day where you only do what you really feel like. And if you checked in with yourself right now + asked what you really felt like doing, what would the reply be? If you feel like sharing I would love to hear what your answer was!


  1. Right now, this very minute, I would like to be ordering a Gelli Plate from Gelli Arts but I want the new 12x14 one and am having a hard time justifying the expense. Trying to talk myself into believing that I'll be just as happy with the 8x10 but it is not working...

    Your family is lovely! Thanks for sharing them and the bits and pieces of your life! Enjoy!

    1. Oh Dawn I want one of those too! But it is hard to justify the cost isn't it? Sometimes though I buy the thing I don't really want, but think I should have, and end up buying the thing I really wanted in the first place as well! Thanks for popping by x

  2. My 4 yr old said the coloring pages are beautiful

  3. I love the eyes of your girls! Such beautiful artwork!!!
