I hope you all enjoyed a happy Easter holiday break. I have just returned from a week of rejuvenation and inspiration – camping with my family at the beach. Oh what a lovely week – it is so good to get away, away from house, work, computer, obligations and email. We camped in our camper trailer – snug and warm on rainy days, open and sunny on warm days – and we had a bit of both in our week by the beach. We spent days snorkelling, catching fish, swimming and watching the waves. We did some caving, canoeing, collecting shells and making ephemeral beach art. We also did lots of camp cooking, cooking by the fire, drinking cups of tea, toasting marshmallows as well as catching up on our reading and doing lots of sketching by the cliff. I feel ready for … something new … something different … not sure what but there is something in the air for our family.

And our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the Tornados in the USA these past few days. Be well friends.

While I was away, my dear readers, you were not forgotten. I had a store of lovely posts, projects, tutorials and ideas to keep you going this past week or two:
