Back again!

Hi everyone. It's seems so long since my last post. My life has been running in lots of different directions. Taking on my new exercise sessions at the gym (3 sessions a week) has all been a bit overwhelming for a basically non exercise person like me. But I've found a really good trainer who specialises in people like me, with health issues, and has started me on a gentle strength training program, which will gradually increase over time.

Being one who usually finds it difficult to stick with exercising, as I'd rather be sitting crafting, I'm really determined this time to stick with this. I've survived my breast cancer, (5 years this year - yey!!), so I'm not going to let this osteoporosis thingy beat me, I'm determined that with diet, vitamins and exercise to get on top of it!

 But with the busyness of adapting to the new routine I haven't had time to put into my painting and crafting, also my painting table was a complete mess. Absolutely covered with no space to work - not good for motivation or inspiration!

Also I've started on some new little purses that I'm happy with and have supplies for this from one end of the house to the other.   Sooo have spent the last couple of days sorting out my craft room and painting table. Today the table is much clearer, so now I have space to work. So just have to sort all my laces, doilies, buttons, trims and fabrics now into lots of storage boxes that I bought today at the reject shop.

But I think I need to get back into some painting again, I find it very relaxing and enjoy the freedom of creating with the brushstrokes.   
                      Then I could paint something like this .....                                                                        
                                                              .....or something like this

These are just a few photos of some of my past works..sold on ebay...... things I really enjoyed painting and was pleased with the result...

....hope the inspiration and motivation will return soon....

 Wishing you all a wonderful and hopefully creative week-end,  ......Robyn.


  1. Good luck with the exercise routine. I'm sure you can do it :)
    Your past projects are gorgeous :D

  2. Hi Robyn,

    Your painted bears are darling and I hope that you can get back into your work again.
    I need to have a big clean up of all my supplies too, as it is hard to work like that.
    Much luck with the exercise and hope that it will get easier for you.

    Have a happy week

  3. Such sweet little bears you have painted Robyn ~ hopefully you will find the time to pick your brushes back up! And I am so glad your exercising is going well. Good for you for taking charge of your health!

    Hoping you are having a lovely October!
