HOME. This room gives me such a feeling of home when I walk into our dining room now. We have been living in this house for 196 days and it’s still being heavily renovated so every time we make it a little further and I get to decorate a new spot + make it our own with pieces that matter to us, it feels more and more like home.

“Imagine you’re unhappy. You’re not getting what you need. Perversely, this may be because of what you want. You are blind, because of what you desire. Perhaps what you really need is right in front of your eyes, but you cannot see it because of what you’re currently aiming for. The price must be paid before you, or anyone can get what they want/need. You look at the world in your particular, idiosyncratic manner. You use a set of tools to screen most things out and let some things in. You have spent a lot of time building those tools. They’ve become habitual. They’re not mere abstract thoughts. They’re built right into you. They orient you in the world. They are your deepest and often implicit and unconscious values. They have become part of your biological structure. They’re alive. And they don’t want to disappear, or transform, or die. But sometimes their time has come, and new things need to be born.“ - Jordan B. Peterson

Are you living your life or letting it slip by you? Being mindful and present in your life can really enrich your experience and fill every day with meaning and purpose. But if you sit in idle, as a spectator or passenger, then life goes by unnoticed. Memories get lost. Moments disappear. Opportunities go away. ❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔
What to do? Live life intentionally. Live undivided so that what you're doing is what you're doing, and not what you're doing while also texting or while also stressing about money or making future plans. The here and now only exists in one moment and when it's gone you can't get it back. Lukas Forchhammer, frontman of Lukas Graham, wrote 7 years as a reflection of where life has been and where he wants it to go including being the best father. It reflects on losing his father as will. I resonate with both of those aspects as my dad died about the same age and I'm also a father striving to be the best. I also see it as a telling of how quick life goes by us. However being mindful slows it down some making the moments we're in that much more poignant. Write the next page, own it and make it more meaningful!!
Hello friend! Its been awhile since I introduced myself and as I reach for my #making tribe...I thought I'd say hello.
I'm a maker. Mostly of the necessities...clothing, shelter, food but occasionally of a really good tool pouch! I love working with natural materials...organic cotton, wool, alpaca, wood. If those materials have a story...all the better.
I'm a bee wrangler and, while I'm an old food preserver, I'm also a budding gardener.
Last year I began running retreats for Maker's (Kinship Handwork) as a way to connect to women and as a means to empower others to shine their light. This year I dusted off my Graphic Design degree and started Kinship Graphic Design : @kinshipgraphicdesign. As a way to help small business owners authentically represent themselves on the web.
I'm also a mama to a wee boy of three years. Whom I love dearly and who is a major catalyst for healing my wounds and growing into my best self.
If I'm not actively mama-ing, you can find me in the woods, at the sewing table, reading a good book or planning and dreaming.

What A Day!
Had an amazing day watching the oldies play a game of rugby for charity. All in aid of autism, #lifeforakid
As most of you know autism is quite close to my heart, and just seeing people come together and support this amazing charity. Is just awesome.... 🧩
It’s beautiful souls like this that remind me why I do what I do.., 💕 when a customer walks in to my stall & connects with a piece then asks the properties of the gem.. but as I’m explaining she has a reaction that makes me have goosebumps all over I realise that I’m here to connect with humanity.. thank you beautiful Fiona for your story your warmth & for sharing such a heartwarming memory of your family. 🧜🏼♀️
