How I learned to take care of myself again…

Hi! Here I am! I have not been regularly blogging nor have I been showing my face in quite some time. Maybe because winter months always make me want to hibernate and maybe because a lot of sad things happened last year which made me melancholy and want to hide myself away. And truthfully I had not been taking care of myself very well at all. But, I have been recalibrating, finding my balance in the discombobulation (favourite word!) that is life and nuturing and restoring to the max. My self-care tool box contains some extra non-negotiable items these days….

Living in that in-between-place (part3)

Just sitting with my cup of tea, asking myself the question of; ‘what do I want next?’ And, for the past few months I really didn’t know. I am starting to see. I am starting to realise that even the short-term, in-the-moment choices we make can massively impact the course of life. And, that it REALLY matters to me more than ever now. It’s hard to explain the complete ‘unsettledness’ that goes hand in hand with the absolute (joyous) freedom of living a slow-travel and nomadic lifestyle. We have had no home, nest, base for over three and a half…

Re-opened my Etsy Shop!

I know I haven’t updated my blog for quite a while now but I have still been creating in my studio and still travelling too! I have re-opened my Etsy Shop this week and just wanted to put a little mention here. One of the paintings has sold already! I will probably be adding limited edition prints here too but am still in the process of finding a professional printer that I like. I am not sure when I will write more as the travels and intermittent internet make it sometimes challenging to keep up with things here. And, also,…

Finally settling after Two and a Half Years on the road???

After only two months in the UK, we are starting to get itchy travel feet again! Don’t get me wrong – I do like the UK, but, I just don’t feel right here anymore. Spending the last two and a half years slow-travelling through six countries in our van, and some wonderful house-sits in between, we really are clarifying what we truly enjoy most about the different locations. We have been so fortunate to end up in this gorgeously secluded farm. With a cat to take care of and the wildness of the North Yorks Moors literally on our (sometimes…

Buy my prints and other stuff here!

I now have my work for sale here at Zippi! They are having a 15% sale too at the moment and free (UK) delivery on all sales over £20. I have not seen samples yet as I have only put my order in today, but they do have a ‘no quibble pledge’ which guarantees a full refund if the customer wasn’t completely happy. I am selling prints, cards, canvasses, cushions, bags and all sorts of other goodies. The prices are good and they offer very fast delivery too.


The BEST 5 Things about House Sitting…

  House-sitting really is so fun and it fits so well into our nomadic ‘van-life’ lifestyle right now. Not only does it give us interesting places to stay and stop and rest, but it gives the home-owners peace of mind while they are away too. A win-win. We love those. It is always especially enjoyable if we have pets to look after too and we have a lovely cat here called Missy! Here are some other benefits and joys for us when we are house-sitting.   Having a postal Address! I have to be honest, sometimes not having a postal…

Sharing some New Year Inspirations…

I have to admit that I am not feeling very inspired now we are in the UK on a visit. It has been almost a year. I am feeling sunshine deprivation. The incessant rain and grey skies depress me. I feel more alien here than ever before and I dearly miss Portugal. But, as I sit in the back of our beloved van writing this – I know this is just part of the journey.   “New Year’s eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among…

What I have learned from 5 years authentic blogging?

  Years ago when James said he was going to build a website for my artwork and that it could include a blog if I wanted, my initial reaction was; I didn’t want one. No way! Firstly, I didn’t think I would be able to think of anything to say, and secondly I couldn’t imagine who would want to read it anyway. I didn’t think I would dare to risk sharing with enough honesty – therefore, what would be the point? And, would my writing standard be accomplished enough to actually publish it? But, I put my worries aside, did-it-anyway…
