My children have taught me an awful lot - mainly about myself. But I love it when they get creative and inventive. Who needs a new toy? Mum's wool can be used in so many ways....A quiet hour later and we had an entire house art installation, with discoveries to be made at every turn.
Lesson learnt - reduce, reuse, rethink, do something new with old things...be content with what's at hand.
Our family are members of the L'Arche Inverness Community. I am a mother of two boys and married to a delightful Frenchman. He is the leader of a therapeutic garden project at L'Arche, but is also a metal engraver, jeweller and artist. I spend my time between home and L'Arche, as a House Assistant. I love sewing, knitting, photography and baking - life is too short! I speak a few languages badly. We are privileged to live in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands where we often sense our Creator. I enjoy telling stories and using Godly Play.
I take my photos using a Canon EOS 400D. If you want to use any of them, please be lovely enough to ask me first.
