High Heels and Lipstick

I’m so pleased to be able to share another excerpt from Musings on Mothering. Many thanks to Rachel O’Leary and Rosie Evans for giving me permission to share their contributions over at Story of Mum.

A Cartoon Me!

My talented brother-in-law created this image of me from a photograph. I think the way he’s done the cartooning is great and I appreciate the time he spent doing this. Thanks a lot Matthew!

Sculpture anyone?

So far I’ve had a great response to my ‘Call for Submissions’ from mothers who want to contribute to the anthology project. But having thought that my own creativity knows no bounds (!) my eyes have been opened by the many suggestions for skilled craft and artwork I hadn’t considered.

So if there are any sculptors, lacemakers, weavers, spinners or potters out there who are interested in this project – I would love to hear from you!
