The Apron Project…and other beautiful things….

It seems a lifetime ago that I had something worthy of a showing. The never-ending balance between nurturing others and nurturing myself requires a 30hour day; there’s always something leftover that needs accomplishing.
Not to beat myself up over it though.
Those cloudy days are over!
I have some fabulous news.

We have re-jigged the living areas to suit our growing boys and their changing needs, so I am out of the Sunroom and have transplanted myself (not so successfully LOL) into the former formal dining room.

I was entirely tired of that blank white wall and so did that ^^^ – just to see if I could actually do it! Looks like I did. And now I get to look at something truly unique and mine and it inspires me to get creative. To look at its beauty each day is a privilege.

So, I get an email from my Art Is You superwoman, Sallianne McClelland who has put together a fundraiser for the Kuring-gai Women’s Shelter in Sydney. Very happy to be donating this art for The Apron Project.

Aprons from Australia and the USA are currently on display at St Ives Shopping Village in Sydney and they look fabulous all lined up.

For more information on the Gala Dinner and how to bid on some truly exceptional aprons, go to their website. If you’re in SYDNEY, please pitch in and support this amazing centre for women in crisis by attending the Gala, share on your wall and within your networks. Bids from outside Australia are welcome! All information on the website.


In other news…..

I’m working a term contract at my son’s school while someone takes some well-deserved Long Service Leave. 4 weeks down, 6 to go! It’s been great to talk proper academic smarty stuff with other teachers, and the kids aren’t too bad either. They’ve taken well to the interruption so I’ll share some of their sweetness in another post.

Enjoy your weekend. I’ll be marking drafts and getting prepped for talking smarts with the Year 12s on Monday.

Be good, be creative, be accepting.
