Guest post: Zion Lights on motherhood and creativity

Early auction of a unique handbound copy of 'Musings on Mothering' is now live!

I wanted to alert you all to a fundraising auction in aid of LLLGB. With the great help of Barb Sheppard, an ex-Leader and long-term supporter of LLL, I have put together an ebay auction of a unique handbound hardback copy of Musings on Mothering. 100% of the proceeds from the sale will go to LLLGB. Please do take a look at this unique book, which took Barb absolutely hours to produce, and share widely if possible:

I know I’m biased, but I really think this would make for a great Mothers’ Day gift! So if you’d like to make a bid, Barb and I would be delighted!

Thank you again Barb! You’re a real star. :-)

First royalty cheque received by LLLGB

Before the end of January I managed to get the first royalty cheque for sales of Musings on Mothering (to date) sent off to LLLGB. A short while later I received their acknowledgement.

It is really lovely to know that due to my efforts – and the efforts of all the wonderful contributors – Mother’s Milk Books has managed to raise this so far. Hopefully there will be many more royalty cheques to come!

Many thanks again to all those who made this possible.

My story on 'The Awakened Parent'

I was delighted to be able to write this post for Clare Kirkpatrick over on ‘The Awakened Parent’, which is a great site. It’s full of inspiring mothers’ stories and interesting posts about parenting instinctively.

I love the photo that I added too; it captures a very special, yet every day mothering moment. And it’s all these special moments that make mothering so wonderful

Art on glass

I recently went to a lovely shop called ‘A Room Full of Butterflies’ in Nottingham which is owned by Jo Welch, one of the artists who contributed to Musings on Mothering, to pick up a very special item. Jo produces beautiful art on glass, creating one-off hand painted pieces. As it was a loved one’s birthday recently, I commissioned this piece from Jo. I think it’s absolutely beautiful, and the present was received with many thanks.

It got me thinking…

When I was receiving submissions from artists and writers for Musings on Mothering a few people mentioned breastfeeding images created on glass – painted, or made out of stained glass, but unfortunately, no colourful art on glass was submitted for the book in the end. But if anyone still knows of any artistic breastfeeding images captured on glass, please do let me know!
