Egh. I really need to find a new layout and jazz up my blog a bit. It feels so stale, plus I want to make a new header. Such a trivial thing to write about, yet I find a blog is an extension of one’s personality. This means it is constantly morphing and changing to fit how we feel.
How do you feel at the moment?
I feel INSPIRED! I want to write music and lyrics and sketch pattern after pattern. I recently bought a craft journal at the moment and it is getting quiet a work out. I manage to write or draw an idea every day which is a miracle considering I have an eight week old little girl who has a voracious appetite. Turning the ideas into a solid tangible subject is another matter entirely 😉
I also want to realise one of my dreams in working with animals. My goal is to eventually be able to open and run a no-kill animal shelter. That is a long way off at this point in my life, but I believe anything is possible. A smaller goal that I will acomplish is to become a certified dog trainer and behaviourist. I would like to be qualifed within five years. This depends of where life takes my husband and I(and obviously our daughter!-she goes where we go).
What are your dreams?
Went to Winter Magic up in Katoomba with hubby today. I was slightly dissapointed, there was only a very small percentage of people in fancy dress and few stalls missing, double :/. The reason we went was because hubby has never experienced this sort of thing here in Oz and I thought it would be interesting to at least go and have a walk around and experience Katoomba and its magic, which I felt was lacking.
Onto better topics! I did see some lovely crocheted blankets for sale and that made me want to start and actually finish a blanket just for me! I’ve only ever crafted two blankets and they were both given away to family. I don’t have the time and patience to make one (or the money!), maybe one day.
Wrote two different sets of lyrics this morning, so I’m trying to figure out the process of adding harmony to the words using my bass. This is a completly new and fascinating experiance as I never had the confidence as a teenager to write songs. I definately had pages and pages of teenage angst filled lyrics 😉 ahhhh adolescense, how angry you can be. I’m using simple harmony and repitition which is fine, sometimes I think its better to start off small add to the mixture. I want some spice in the songs, some punch, so I can listen and go ‘yeah! I wrote that’. Speaking of music I have been torturing myself daily by drooling over Fender Basses. I currently own a no- name knock off hofner bass that I got of a lovely person from freecycle. (how good is freecycle?!) and dream of the day I can own a swanky yum-yumm crunchy fender 😀 I also have it bad for rickenbacker guitars, lordy they are amazing guitars!!!!
Obviously with a baby on the way, my dream bass guitar will have to wait, which I am happy with, I know one day I will be the owner of a sweet, sweet bass. In the mean time, here is a bass pic porn 😉 Fender Jaguar Bass.
