Sanity Space with "SweetPeaAndSam"

Most of you know that I love a good creative project and that I also like variety... you could say that I'm forever on the look out for something interesting and different to try my hand at...and also to provide that much needed diversion to balance out life's challenges. So, one afternoon last week, I  joined a friend of mine (Sam) to work on something I had never done before.  Today on "Sanity Space" I would like to share with you some pictures of the process ....and of course a peek of the final article. 

Sam is really good at making things... especially lampshade which she creates and crafts by hand...(taking inspiration from Victorian and Art Deco eras). She loves working with wood veneer, and uses laser cut, hand painted leather to decorate her projects...

Productivity...& the grape vine!

Do you ever get to the end of the week and wonder what you accomplished? 
Me too!  I often feel like what I've done is just not enough and I end the week with a list of things left undone. The tendency in such circumstances is to focus on what is still left to do, and not give yourself any credit or a pat on the back, for what you actually HAVE accomplished. 

These last few weeks It feels like I've not achieved very much... at times like this I have to give myself a talking to and remind myself of some of the things that I DID do and congratulate myself for at least still trying! When I focus on this, I have to concede that even though my progress is not as I would like it to be.... it is still progress!!

During these last few weeks I have enjoyed having some sunshine to be outside and do garden jobs. I have noticed within the last few days that my grape vine (the one I thought I had killed last year by pruning too hard) was starting to show signs of life again... 
I have been watching and waiting for a few months, hoping and praying that it would spring back to life.  Beneath the gnarly bark,  growth has slowly but surely been occurring ... progress that until now, has been largely happening out of sight.  
The other day I noticed  buds emerging and now the little lime green leaves are  appearing  and unfolding,  growing bigger day by day.

Water therapy

There is something that is just so healing about water and I love being near, around or immersed in it ... in fact, water is one of our six best doctors ... (that is:- sunshine, air, exercise, rest, diet and of course...water). 
It is a versatile element .... we can drink it, admire the beauty of it in great lakes , streams and oceans, swim and exercise in it, float in it, bathe in it... and apply it to different parts of our body.  We can even add oils, clay and salts to it .....and each one of these modalities has countless physiological and psychological benefits.
So...after last weeks Aqua class post, I wanted to follow on with the water theme and tell you  a few things I was reminded of at one of the lectures I attended recently on Hydrotherapy the Naturopathic Iridology Symposium in London.

You may remember from a previous post that my primary training is in when I  came across Hydrotherapy (whilst training as a Naturopathic Iridologist about 10 years ago), I thought that I was pretty well versed in it. I  automatically assumed that it was something I had done for a long time.... namely carrying out therapy exercises in some lovely warm water... many of you may have even done it...and perhaps this is what comes to your mind when you hear about hydrotherapy too?
However, I soon learned that Naturopathic hydrotherapy is more inclusive and can be used in many and varied ways.
