I have a quite simplistic belief that happiness in life can be boiled down to the fullness of your three 'tanks' - Faith, Hope and Love.
(You know, the verse you've heard at umpteen weddings).
This blog is about living well, celebrating life and all things beautiful. It's about joy and creativity and anything that can make you smile... or that might help inspire you to fill those 'tanks'! :-)

Fearless Creativity (Pt. 2!) - Never say Never!
So... more than once I might have said that I would rather watch paint dry than learn how to knit.
My mum tried to teach me once, and it was sooooo tediously boring watching her 'cast on' that I thanked her for curing me of my fleeting fascination with the creative artform.
But I was walking through a haberdashery store a couple of weeks ago, and something beautiful took my eye. It was a ball of wool. So fascinated was I with this remarkable ball of wool, that EVEN though I'd vowed never to knit, I purchased it. Just to look at.
Beautiful pinks and greens entwining, reminding me of sunset in a forest.
No. Not to knit. Just to look at. :-)
But a strange thing happened one evening. All it took was a Jackie Chan movie and a peaceful house, and the fascination became Youtube-ing, and the Youtube-ing became... a scarf.
Albeit a few dropped stitches, and a few rows of 27 instead of 26 (?!), but definitely wearable?!
