Foundations and Baggage

I have been considering these topics in a spiritual light for my Invest presentation on Friday, rx but here are some other senses of the words…


1. Family foundations. I love my families in the broadest sense – I even feel like my colleagues are family – sisters! Church family is blowing me away at the moment.  Mira has been so incredibly sweet and snuggly and kissy today – andI have smooched a lot of teddy bear fur! My sister came down to support me at the weekend and we will have a few very lovely visitors over the next fortnight.


2. Creativity  – both a foundation and baggage! Part of what I do is recycling, pharmacist but I wanted to make hearts that would endure longer than card and I don’t have time to carve my own. These will be amazingly transformed when next seen…


However, to be honest, a lot of what I do is hoard  and collect, and stash reducing is a necessity. But I have bought this wire… so why? It is steel, and to buy this amount in sterling silver would have cost me over £200. The anitque colour is perfect , it cost me about £7 and should last for ages. So once my prelim marking is over, I hope to get started  – my head is buzzing with ideas. I also wanted some clear hard resin for jewellery purposes but that is proving harder to obtain.
