Oh and I forgot......

The many, many, many trips to coffee shops! 

So hard to believe.....

..........6 months have passed since my last posting.  I have been very neglectful of this space.....and a lot of other things I am ashamed to say!  Life has taken over and left me with very little time for blogging, so many apologies to anyone out there still following this neglected blog.  

As a small but hopefully first step back into blogging here is a visual record of things I have been inspired by and working on in the last few months.....
