I’ve learnt a useful lesson from my friend and artist Suse (www.susannethercote.com) about not putting unnecessary deadlines on my creative work.

Sure, sometimes we need them to motivate us but sometimes they just create stress for no reason.

I’ve been working on these Barbie scale kitchen pieces for a while and although I really want to release them ASAP I needed to step back and let the finishing details resolve in my head.

I now know exactly what they need and can’t wait to bring them to completion!
