An Inspired 2015: Postcard Bloggers

As someone who loves to travel and considers themselves a global nomad, I was really intrigued when I was invited to be part of a blog hop organised by Kate at A Playful Day.

As part of her year of inspiration, called ‘An Inspired 2015‘, she’s been choosing different themes each month to help focus her creativity. This month her theme is ‘Location & Journey’ and she’s asked me to swap a postcard with other fellow global nomads to help share the inspiration around.

So for the next 3 Mondays you will hear from Clare of Yarn and Pointy Sticks, Maria of Subway Knits or Kate. In return, I’ll be sharing my latest inspiration for the theme on their blogs. If you want to share your inspirations or reactions, follow along and contribute with the hashtag #aninspired2015. We’ll be keeping you up to date with the tag #postcardbloggers2015.

When I left Australia for a “gap year”, I never would have imagined it would become closer to a  gap quarter-century! Having worked and lived in many different places I have called London home for many years now. Somehow, living in a different place from where I grew up always feels a little bit like being on holiday.

Since having kids, we still travel a lot and while its very different, we still love travelling and now get to see the world through a different (much shorter and slower) perspective.

Next week, expect to hear from Kate who I’ve told needs to think about her colour inspiration as that’s our topic of the month here at Curious Handmade. I wonder what she’ll come up with?
