Silver linings…

Everything is all of a flutter in the three bear’s house right now and we are feeling the strain a bit. Mr Bear has lots of musical and academic ideas that are keeping him up late, I am preparing to go back to work after seven blissful months of maternity leave and little bear has so much changing for her that she doesn’t know if she’s coming or going!

I am trying to really appreciate all the twists and turns that my life is taking at the moment. I could quite easily become disheartened and cross but there are some things that I just cannot change, indeed, if I look closely I might see that what I thought to be just a big, black storm cloud actually has a bright silver lining. That is what I am chanting, mantra-like, to myself daily anyway.

And amidst all the change and turmoil I have decided to start a blog. Why put that extra pressure on myself? Because it gives me a sense of control, a feeling that although so many decisions have been taken out of my hands and I have to go back to working for the man,  I can also do this for myself. It will keep me focused on the things that make me happy. My family. My creativity.

Talking of silver linings, I’ve got some lovely projects to finish up and send off over the next few days, including a surprise for my sister who is getting married next weekend! I’ll be sure to share a few pictures as it’s going to be such a beautiful day.

For now, here’s some of my work in progress.
