October Calendar Free Download

We are slowly moving into autumn, savouring these last warm days, spending time outdoor as much as we can, changing our weekly menu to add more soups and comfort food, enrolling into after school activities and attending birthday parties. It’s almost time to bring out jumpers and blankets, time for afternoon teas and apple cakes, time for slowing down after a fast going summer and a hectic back to school. I’m starting to like this season, even if it means shorter days and cool mornings.
What are your plans for this month? Hope something exciting!

September Calendar Free Download

September is like a new beginning. We had a long summer this year and getting back into a routine feels like an hopeless task. The new school year is just around the corner with Vale starting kindergarten and Olivia primary school; needless to say their approach to school is completely different, if not the opposite. I’m back at work this week, but I feel as I would need a few extra days to reconnect with myself and my home, which are both upside down at the moment.
Endless to-do lists are in order, as well as strategic planning.
Hope you are having a slow “back to school” time and enjoying the last of these long days.

August Calendar Free Download + some photos

We are in the midst of summer, along with school holidays, high temperatures, afternoon naps, al fresco dining, water games and biking rides. Yet, we have to wait a few more days for our family holidays to begin.
In the meantime, we start the month celebrating my 3 year old birthday and savoring the memories July has brought.

Happy August!

July Calendar Free Download

July is the middle month. It sits between the excitement of June, with the beginning of summer and the end of the school year, and the freedom of August, with the family holidays and lazy days on the beach. It’s the month with lots of plans, weekends away, holidays prep and anticipation. It’s the month where the usual family routine feels a distant memory and the unscheduled holidays activities are still  far away. It’s the start of the second half of the year, and Christmas feels already around the corner.

Wishing you a wonderful month; hoping the weather will be temperate and not too hot!

   I feel like we had the longest January ever! The Christmas holidays are by now a long distance memory and we are already longing for the first signs of spring.

I have been busy painting lately; the more I do it, the less I feel the pressure to make a masterpiece everytime I pick up a brush. My preferred subjects are dried leaves and small branches; anything that doesn’t tilt or fade overnight. And I’m getting obsessed with olive green!

I have also started an annual perpetual nature journal. It is a simple concept that doesn’t require too much energy and most of all doesn’t have to be completed in a year. Basically you take a blank journal, I’m using Stillman and Birn Zata Series, and date the first page to represent the first week of January (Jan 1-7). Then continue dating the pages to represent each week until you get back to January. Each week you put an entry, it could be a sketch, a painting, some notes, and carry on to the following year by turning the journal to the current week and entering a new drawing.

I’m currently working on a new website and shop, which I’m hoping to launch by the end of the month. Fingers crossed I don’t get swamped by too much coding.
