The Artistic Mother

What a perfect concept for a book! Shona Cole from An Artful Life has just had a book published called The Artistic Mother: A Practical Guide to Fitting Creativity into Your Busy Life.

Anyone who has children and any desire to be creative, artist or just plain crafty can't help but feel right at home with this title! So often in the day I am literally craving an opportunity for even an hour of time on my own to try ANYTHING!!! lol Very frustrating as opportunity rarely presents itself and of course if it does I end up with helpers! Then it works out that 'My Wishes' get their craft on instead of me! I know, I know in a few years I will be complaining and blubbering and begging the said 'Wishes' to spend even a few minutes of time interested in what I'm doing {sigh} - it is a Catch 22! So I spend a lot of time lurking on blogs late at night admiring all that others are doing and trying to file away all the great ideas for when opportunity does finally present itself! lol Mean while I may just have to order a copy of this book...(if I don't win the giveaway!!!) lol

Sounds interesting doesn't it??? Anyhow there are a couple of things you can do...

  1. Head to Amazon and buy yourself a copy...
  2. Check out Shona's blog An Artful Life (she has a giveaway going on!!! ;) )
  3. and number 3....ummmm well check out Shona's blog anyhow get some inspiration and some eye candy all at once (great photos and tutorials)

Anyhow happy looking (you won't be sorry!)

btw I'm new to blogging and have no idea how to get rid of this phantom 1. as seen below...lol
