the chaos of book creation

Saturday, 18 June 2011

I'm so happy to be pouring my creative energies into a new book - it's when I'm at my most happy - even when my house becomes a little chaotic (my dining room table a case in point).

The crinkle of paper, the slice of the paper cutter, the whir of the sewing machine.

The sticky stirring of a sugary pot, the moulding of fondant icing, the piling high of fresh baked cookies.

The gentle coaxing of product so it looks just-so, the styling layouts, the positioning of props to make things look magical.

The subtle click of the camera.

The colour and texture and heart-warming thumpity thump of my heart when I'm in the process of creating - it's when I feel most alive. I love how the boys in my life peer eagerly at my work, trying not to openly show too much interest in all that girly stuff. I love how my daughter snuggles up to me and asks if I can help. I love it when my friends email begging for sneak peeks.

It's just lovely lovely.

I hope you are doing something wonderful today that makes you really happy, too.

The chaos on your dining table looks like a whole lot of fun to me.
