Winter King and Queen

I've had a little hiatus from this space for a few weeks as some of you may have noticed. I've been going through a season of personal change which has been rather challenging but exciting too. I've been learning how important it is to trust my intuition and to remain connected to source even when times are stressful (especially!). This all sounds like such a cliche until steps are actually taken to implement this state of being into one's life. This has been an amazing period of inner growth and I'm experiencing a welcome state of relief from the chronic fatigue as a result. I had been fighting against it for so long and was so scared to excercise my personal power for fear of further exacerbating the symptoms. I feel I've truly let go, and this is working for now. Of course there's a whole lot more to it than this, but I just thought I'd share that little brief snippet of what's been going on.

      ******************************************************************

In preparation for the winter months I've been reflecting on what winter means for us where we live. I've been trying to feel a connection with winter, but must admit that I've been so fond of autumn this year that I'm finding it a little difficult to open my spirit up to the changing season! I decided to do a little crafting last night as I find it so meditative and a great tool to aid in some inner shifting. These little folk are the result...






 This winter King and Queen have certainly helped me let go of autumn and welcome the coming winter spirit to our home.


Happy Winter to all you Southern Hemispherians! 

Peace xxx

Not a ocmment on this post, but on your wish list - Silk play cloths are crazy easy to dye yourself and so much less expensive that way. Ditto on the DIY for tree blocks. If *I* could create both of these at home, LOL, I really think anyone can! LMK if you'd like some links for both....

Hi GooberMonkey:) Thanks for stopping by my blog - Aria's 2nd birthday is coming up and I'm just about to start making some tree blocks so would LOVE some links as you mentioned. I'm also very interested in dyeing some play silks but have never done any dyeing before and wouldn't know where to start. Do you use natural dyes? Providing a 'homemade' approach to toys etc for Aria is very important to me as I feel it adds soul and life to her childhood journey (not to mention all the benefits for the environment and the limiting of toxins etc...)

Nice to 'meet' you:)

Thanks for all the gorgeous comments everyone:) I know I was only gone for a couple of weeks, but I missed you lot! Blogging is such a unique and mysteriously intriguing way of sharing snippets of one's life. Because we are all pretty much of like mind, I feel quite a kinship with the bloggers I 'meet':)
