bowerbird bazaar ... and some other news!
On the weekend I was invited to join Bella and Kaye at Bowerbird Bazaar to demonstrate weaving - it was incredibly busy, incredibly exciting, and incredibly fun!! Anita took the above snaps of me in action (note the 'concentration face', LOL!) ;)
My other news: I have just quit my job of 7 1/2 years! My role is moving to a shared services function interstate, and I didn't relish the idea of working within a Corporate taxation role ... luckily I was successful in securing a new position as a Credit Assessor with a fantastic company that rents out musical instruments. An added bonus is that my new role is a 15 minute drive away from home, and pretty close to the ocean ;) That means more time for weaving, as well as lovely lunchtime strolls!
I don't want to get all hippy-sounding on this blog, but I have learnt a very important lesson - when life seems to throw awful things at you, you really do benefit by having an 'open and allowing' attitude. Don't get me wrong, when I found out my role was being made redundant, I was super-angry ... but after the anger, I forced myself to see the positives in the situation, and told myself that Life sends you the right things at the right time. Go with the flow - I'm not saying you shouldn't do anything ... but only do things that seem right at the time, and feel good. That's called 'inspired action'. When you're angry and desperate, you block all the good things coming to you. Try to relax ... and see what happens!
And that's as philosophical as I'm going to get around here - *wink* ;)
