Living Life Your Way…. Interview with Goddess Leonie

I’ve been working hard the last few months at overcoming my fears and following my dreams. So I’m running a series of interview with inspiring people to see what part fear has played in their life and how they’ve overcome it to live life their way… This weeks interview is with Goddess Leonie Hi Leonie, tell us a little about yourself and your family. Why of coursicles! Here’s me in dot points: I’m totally in love with life. I see a goddess in every woman. I’m an artist, writer & goddess guide. And I help women to see what I see… the goddess inside them. Life is better when you know you are a goddess! I have an exquisite baby daughter, Ostara Faith Avalon. I am in love with a wise man who is also very hot. We live in my grandmother’s old cottage in tropical paradise. Have you always been self employed? And if not how did you make the change? I’m very blessed to have a job that is my dream come true, and also manages to support my wee family so that my love and I can stay at home with our daughter. I have been full…

A little bit of craftiness

 I’m back on a roll guys!! Yesterday was a GREAT day, I got loads done – finally found the energy and the motivation to do the housework, blitzed the whole place from top to bottom – it looks soooo much better now. If only it’d stay that way! We did some thrifting in town in the morning, and found a couple of bits but nothing great. Then I pulled out my sewing machine, dusted it off (!) and made myself a new top (out of an old pillowcase) I’m pretty pleased with the results – I’ll be making more I think. Looked to find some embellishments to brighten them up. I’ve just finished listing 8 x 6 prints in my etsy shop. Hopefully will get the 10 x 8’s listed this afternoon. I’ll be running a giveaway later on this week – so stay tuned :) And don’t forget to come back tomorrow to check out Goddess Leonie’s interview

Feeling less than perfect…

Tonight I’m not feeling so good. I’ve had a good day, no a GREAT day… the girls and I have had tonnes of fun, we’ve crafted and read and baked and played in the woods. It truly was a perfect day. These feelings started late afternoon and now I feel pretty darn crap. My gremlins are very active, whispering, no make that shouting in my head.   “You’re not pretty enough” “You’re not clever enough” “You’re not funny enough” “You’re art isn’t good enough” “You are just not anything enough” The tears are falling now I’m writing these words. I’ve held them in all evening, and put on a smiley face for the girls. Nothing happened to make me feel this way… it just came on. I’m tired and emotional and not feeling strong enough to ignore the gremlins tonight. Right now, I believe them. I feel like destroying all my canvas, deleting every thing online, digging a hole and hiding in it. I know that will do me no good but it is very tempting. I don’t know why I’m even bothering. I’m feeling lonely and disconnected. I feel like giving up. Maybe it’s just tiredness, maybe it’s hormones.…
