As a working mum, holidays can be hard! Not because I'm working extra hard, but more that I'm not, if that makes any sense. I start to fret that I am not getting enough done in the studio and shop and that I am falling behind in my painting. And then I just have to stop andd remind myself that it is okay to have a holiday too sometimes and to stop being so hard on myself. My kids love having me around and if I can spread out my stuff on the dining table – an array of paper and glue then that's really not such a bad thing! Here are a few pieces I put together last week. I do love my collage!
