Back on Monday April 1

I'm enjoying a break from blogging at the moment; some quiet time to focus on family. I'll be back from Monday 1st April.

P.S Love the fabulous Orla Kiely Spring Summer 2013 collection!

I'm Taking A Break. I'll Be Back Soon (ish!)

Hello friends and fellow designers!
If you regularly visit Kitty as a Picture or my other blog Go Benny Go, you will have noticed that I have not been posting much in the last few weeks. There are many reasons why: I have had client work to do, I have been working my way through module three of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design, I have young children to care for, and I have also been very unwell. Being ill has made me realise that I need to spend more time with my family and not let this precious time with my little ones and my wonderful partner slip by. I want to savour every precious moment.

The image above is part of a mini-collection I did while working on the Ecourse. Those who have followed my blog will have seen the artwork before; I have just changed the colour to Emerald- the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2013. If you are considering doing Beth and Rachael's surface pattern course I can tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed it and felt it was worth every cent and more! I loved it and have made some very dear friends and learnt a heap. I am very grateful to Beth and Rachael for the wonderful artistic journey it has been for me.  

 I am going to take a break from Kitty as a Picture now and spent some precious time with my family. I know I will be back because I am inspired by so much in life and I absolutely love to share it. I just don't know how long I will be away; It may be days, it may be weeks, or it may be months. But I will be back, I promise! Please, treasure the people you love, and treasure every fleeting moment with them.
Love Brenda X
