Hello friends
I'm just popping into say a quickie Hello and to share some exciting news!!!
I know, I know I've been such a really bad blogger......
I'm so sorry......hoping to change that in the next few weeks
please bare with me.
Life's been really busy of late with one thing and another......
the pay the bills job,
 deadlines for projects.....creating for me..... oh and being a busy mum,
trying to spin lots of  plates really does takes it toll!
In my last post I talked about making some changes.....
I was recently reminded that Life's far to short to live with regret!
so after months contemplating if I should or shouldn't
 I have decided to make a BIG decision to
follow my HEART
 and to dedicate more time to being creative....whooohooo!
Yes I will probably be very broke and yes it could be 
what is otherwise known as a Midlife! lol
but I'm happy.........
I'm finally going to do something I love!
 I will be leaving the pay the bills job in the next few weeks.......
it will be so sad to say goodbye to some really lovely people.....
 but I'm soooooo super excited to be opening a new chapter in my life
and doing something I'm really passionate about
Hoping you will come along for the ride...
I've even got all clever and got myself a new facebook page,
I will  keep you up to date with workshops, teaching demos etc
feel free to like the page here
Hope to be back very soon
have a fabulous week
Carpe Diem
(seize the day)

  22. Fantastic kaz , you should have done it ages ago. Super talented x

  23. Good for you Kaz.
    !8 months ago I closed my Playgroup after Supervising there for 16 years. As I had always crafted anyway Hubby said see if you can make any money from craft and see how you go. We are lucky we have no mortgage and two "board Paying" kids so were ok for dosh.
    I do ok with my crafts and keeps me happy and contented.
    I was so glad to be doing it and not going out to work.
    You might miss the contact with work friends, but your workshops should keep you sane!
    Well done you, and if it doesn't feel right after a while, go back to the pay job, nothing harmed.
    So pleased for you, join the gang!!
    I will be at Dy's on July 6th, hope you will be there.

  24. You are gonna ROCK IT Kaz. Not only are you talented but you have such a unique style and your personality shines through everything you do. I am excited and happy for you. I can only imagine who scary it must be, but you are so right - you never know and sometimes you just have to say wtf (sorry - but it's true). I'm definitely coming along for the ride.

  41. Hi Kaz,
    I am generally just a stalker but had to take the time to tell you that I totally understand. There never seems to be enough hours in the day/week to do all the things I "want" to do, work full time, take care of the house, etc..... I, too have stepped back and decided that some times it's more fulfilling to step back from "stuff" (lengthy blog post, etc..) and work on the art that's been in my head. Ok, in short..... good for you. Go girl :-)

  42. Well done you, life is indeed too short for regrets. Looking forward to seeing more fab craftiness from you

  43. I'm really proud of you! To leave safety behind to do what you love. I burst with envy... Wish you all the best!

  44. Congrats Kaz!!! You will be huge asset to the crafting world and this may just help with your terrible migraines!!! I wish all the best and will continue to follow/stalk you and your creative journey!!! Hugs!!!

  45. So proud of you Kaz! You certainly won't regret it, it's the best decision I made. Life is all about making the right choices and girl, you did just that.

    Wishing you all the luck in the world xxx

  46. Well done Kaz for making this decision. Life is just too short not to take the chance to do what you love the most and you are such a fantastic teacher too. Margie x
