{going to ground}

Where My Heart Is
Where My Heart Is*

Indications are that I am juggling too many balls, whilst balancing on one leg, whilst standing on a see-saw.  Something's gotta give.

I had been hoping that I could settle back into full time work, in a new job, and maintain all the other parts of my life as if nothing had changed.  Who was I kidding?

So without further ado I'm signing off for a week or two.  I'll be back soon peeps.

*The painting above is showing as part of the 2011 Linden Postcard Show, opening on Saturday 5th February 1 - 5pm, 26 Aclancd Street, St Kilda.

**I've also got work showing in the Red Brick Gallery and Emporium Group Show, and am looking forward to a trip to Ballarat this weekend to attend the opening. {opening night Friday 4th Feb 6 - 8pm, 218a Skipton Street, Ballarat}

***Lastly, I've donated some original work and prints to Chair 14 {former host of the Northern Craft Bonanza} for their upcoming fundraiser to support people affected by the floods in Victoria and QLD.  It's this Friday night 4th Feb from 4pm onwards and includes music, an art auction and other festivities.  Entry is $5.

****Speaking of the Northern Craft Bonanza, when I get a bit more settled I'll be getting it back up and running.  I'm aiming for a first get together sometime in February and a regularly fortnightly catch up from them.  It's also looking like we'll be changing to a Wednesday night.

*****That is all!


  1. Well done Cathy! you have so many wonderful things going on, I hope you find time to stop and appreciate these lovely moments.

    wednesday night is a good one, looking forward to it's return.

    many hugs to you gorgeous girl ♥

  2. WOW! you've certainly got a lot going on with those plates you're juggling in the air! not to mention the beginning of the painting e-course, lucky girl =-)

    Have a good two weeks to yourself!

  3. Have a good break. I'm coming to the end of mine, I think, and I've really enjoyed the time away! But I've also missed it...

  4. Did I ever tell you about the time I broke the see saw in a children's playground? I wasn't even trying to do something fancy. I really couldn't recommend juggling on one!

    Keep those balls in the air and hope to see you soon. xx

  5. Glad you've decided to prioritize YOU!!
    Hope the new job is treating you well.

  8. I hope you are ok. A break is good for restoration - just know you will be missed.
