As the semester comes to an end I have a big block of holidays looming towards me which I'm not particularly fussed about. I don't like holidays very much because I can't really go into my studio and I don't see my friends every day and ofttimes I get stuck in a bit of a rut because of this. Interesting things often come out of this rut though - like a total wardrobe clean out or a renewed interest in baking or doing a puzzle or watching every single episode of 'I Dream of Jeannie' (again). But I really wanna feel like I achieve something these holidays, I'm going to try and not lose the momentum that I've built up during the semester with making stuff. Yeah. That's right, you heard me.
Well my Aunty is on her own holiday in Turkey at the moment and we received this postcard at home. I looked like an Amish person today which interesting, and the painting I'm standing next to up there is by my Grandfather, whom I never had the pleasure of meeting but his heart and soul is hung in frames all about our house - one of the reasons why I make things - so my bloody innards can live once the hands that extracted them have died.
