The sun is out, lovely customers in over Easter and apparently the surf is up. Positive vibes all round.

OK. I'm breathing deeply, but so upset and annoyed at people taking photos of our products in our shop. So rude and actually illegal. Please don't put your phone on video as you walk around, please don't brazenly take a photo and say "Let's look online". It shows your ignorance and disrespect for people's ORIGINAL works. We feel that artists' original works are more important than attempts to copy. Sorry to rant but if you only ask for permission, you know what, we are here to help and let you know more about it and might even say 'yes' .

Just went to a family wedding and one of the quotes from the service was from Pooh and Piglet books : "If you live to be 100 years old I hope I live to be 99 and 364 days, then I won't have to spend even one day without you." Awwww...

Aren't animals the best! We have a new little blue tongue lizard in the garage, two ducks waddling past our shop, bush turkeys scratching everywhere, amazing flights of hundreds of bats across the skies every night. And our two 'girls' : Roxy the Ridgeback and B (Black Betty Bamalam)the Lab. They give us so much joy, every day. Love them. And then there are the other 4-legged visitors to Hearts and Minds Art's red carpet - like Cody. Blind in one eye, he's a treasure.

Interesting. I've been thinking lately how the weather affects our moods. Noosa is known for its beautiful weather but it's been rain, rain, rain lately. Not cold, just rain. Customers at our shop have been (sorry guys) grumpy, glum and down. A bit of sunshine came out today and Wham! change of attitude completely. I'm the same. Having lived in Melbourne all my life until moving to Queensland a few years back I, too, felt the Winter blues. Wonder why. So much more energy with the clear skies. I just feel like stretching and, well, taking flight with new ideas and dreams.
