sandwiches and a flask of tea for lunch…we  managed to fit in the weekly shopping trip

in between lunch and picking up our son from Uni..

Being by the sea always makes me feel better,the sound of the water and smell of sea air gives the soul a boost.

Author: ...creating on the hill....

The Crafts House is a small studio on top of a "hill"..a place to create..a place to breathe..a time just for you.. I'm the luckiest person to spend my days creating the art that i love..meeting like minded creative friends..sharing time in the palette of life..

  1. Oh thank you for posting the photos, that is the first glimpse of the sea I have seen in months, I live at least 12 hours from the coast, looks like you have a wonderful day when your office is on wheels.

    Take care Sharon xo


    • Hi Sharon,there is something about the sea that makes us all happy, my studio on the road has proved that I can work with a limited amount of supplies….I shouldn’t be saying that otherwise I will loose my reason for buying more!!
      hope you can see me waving from the other side of the world


  2. Wow Sandra – what a great post – I didn’t realise The Crafts House went on the road! Lots of inspiration at the sea-side! I think my inspiration would come from the woods in autumn – all those lovely rich colours (I don’t think I will ever escape from the Burnt Orange and Black Plum paints!!) What a great idea to have a creative road-trip. Must try that sometime! See you soon.


    • Hi Karen
      yes mixed media on wheels,when i run out of surfaces I might start on the car!! hee hee…it was really good to see you sorry I had to dash away so quick,maybe next time we can chat over a coffee x
      take care
      Sandra x


  3. The sea always had a calming effect on me too (and I’m lucky enough to see it every day). I love the way every day is different and the view is always interesting – sometimes quiet and still, others exciting when the waves are crashing high up into the air! An excellent location for working too.
    The sandwiches look delicious ♥
