Today I am 55. Five is my favourite number so it has been a birthday I've looked forward to and thought I'd share the real me in the morning...no makeup, no jewellery. I love being in my 50s as I've felt more grounded than any other time in my life. Being able to focus on creativity is a big part of that. It's a good feeling.
Today I also look forward to spending a few hours with my family, the first time in many months. For my birthday I wanted to share my self-portrait from the Nasty Women series which was completed 3 years ago along with the current Extraordinary Women project. My first portrait project, titled Heroes, was completed 5 years ago...I love being able to focus on women & absolutely love creating these bodies of work. My goal has always been to honour women & share their stories.
I also thought I'd share my new pj's...it's actually the Maya Dress pattern by Papercut Patterns sewn in homespun cotton (a nod to Little Women...loving historical fiction again) and is perfect for these warm days. I shortened it quite a bit (to my knees) but am thinking of making another longer version as an actual sundress. I really love the back of this dress.
I know it's going to be a good day. 😊
