Poetic Interlude

I was bimbling around some old bits and bobs the other day and I found a poem that I wrote for my other half not long after we met. It made me go quite wibbly..... and I'm pleased to say that it is even more appropriate today then way back then! I hope you like it?!?

An Intense Spark of Knowing

You know me, not my shell, not the skin I was born in,
Not the person that others think I am.
Yet you know me, the secret me, the inner me.
The complex mix of dark and light, yin and yang.
You regconised my soul and saw within a reflected likeness of your own.
And in that knowing you see a chance to be the inner you.
A chance to let the spiritual seed, lying dormant for so long, begin to grow.
And if you let me I will be the sunlight to your spirit.
And if you let me I will be the warm rain that lets your your spirit grow.
For if you let me be these things to you, I will in turn blossom and I too will know.

Be back soon with some more arty stuff hopefully! Jen

Little Fimo Gargoyle

Well it's been a long time since my last post (sounds like confession!!). There's been a lot of crappy stuff happening which has made being creative very difficult so there hasn't been too much to show. Things aren''t much better on that front but I think the fact that Spring is.... er springing ... has made a difference and I'm now attempting to do arty things. YAY! I've kicked myself up the rear and created a new blog just to showcase my illustrations. It's called Enchanted Moon illustration so any new things of an illustrative nature can be found there. (oh yes I'm trying desperately to get more organised!)

Anyway with further ado may I introduce my newest creation.

He's a little angelic gargoyle critter I made with fimo. He's about 2 inches (5cms) high and hangs from a wire loop which you can see in the back view. I like to call him a gargoyle but
really he should be called a grotesque as gargoyles were water spouts and as you can see he's not spouting anything. In fact it looks like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth..... :-}

I haven't named him yet, so if you've got any ideas that would be cool!

I think if I can I'd like to make a little group of these fellas as alternative Christmas tree decorations...... we'll see. I know what I'm like.... but it's something to log in the back of my bonce for moments when I can't find inspiration to create anything.

Anyway I'm back and with luck and hope I'll be posting more bits and bobs as they come into being.
Have fun! Jen

The Black hole that was November and December

Hello Peeps.

I am alive! Yes it's been a long, long time since I blogged and dare I say it ....... created something!

Unfortunately November and December were not good months at all. I won't bore you or prattle on about misfortune..... as I know there are always peeps a lot worse off, suffice to say that good luck and lady fortune were nowhere to be found.

However, I am the eternal optomist and am hoping with everything crossed that 2010 will be a turning point and hopefully my creative juices will start to flow once more. I won't loose heart so watch this space and hopefully something good might appear in the not too distant.............

P.S. I hope this is a happy New Year for one and all!
