Not to be confused!

I have just realised that my Monday post came up as Friday! Hhhhmmmm.....yet another learning curve in this blogging stuff! I started the post on Friday so that I would not forget about the new website I found, but did not finish it off and publish it until Monday! It really has been a week of "Inspiration Monday's"!!
Sorry for any confusion.

Hi Danielle,
Charlotte here.
The blog spot is fabulous. Would love to see more of your work.
And a chat to yr ma the other day. It's sounds as tho things are going well for you. Yay!
i have had an amazing year. Joseph and I caught a truck to a cattle station 500km NE of Alice Springs when he was four months old and i governessed until the end of August. (My students were finding it hard to learn take-away sums with Jo blowing raspberries on their feet.)
We were planning to come to melbourne for my best friends wedding, when we got a call from Joseph's grandmother. His father had been killed in a road accident. So we were around for the funeral. One day later we moved into his flat in Elsternwick.
I've been thru a big grieving period, but am loving life down here. I'm a full time mum, but i am getting some work published and am selling quite a bit of art and (believe it or not) customised baby clothes. The DirtBabY range is inspired by my years in the desert - couldn't get jo's clothes white, so i marinated them in red dust. A beautiful soft orange. I have also been painting over hand me down t-shirts with some very rock and roll results. I believe that cotton is destroying the planet, but we all love wearing it, so why not recycle/redesign it? Would love to see some more of your work and Hope you and yrs are well and best wishes for the festive season,

CHARLOTTE IT IS SO WONDERFUL TO HEAR FROM YOU! My Mum mentioned you might contact me! I was hoping you would!
Thank you for your kind words and I would love to catch up with you. I'd love to hear more details about what you are up to and CONGRATULATIONS on your beautiful baby. I am shocked and saddened to hear about his father. I can not imagine what this must be like for you. Please please email if you get the chance at:
so that we can keep in touch.
