a leap of faith
Well hello there beautiful humans!
WOW. I can’t believe I’m actually typing this. Freaky shit right?! I mean, I certainly never thought in a million years, I’d bring something I’ve only dreamt about doing for years and years now, into fruition. So yeah… freaky shit.
Not even sure what I want to say in this journal yet… but usually when I think I don't know what to say, I end up ranting and rambling for ever like a lunatic, never having a plan or a strategy, just spilling out words as quickly as they form in my head…so I’m just gonna wing it, see where it takes me, and hopefully a few of you might stick around and come along for the ride. :)
Anyway… WELCOME!! I’m beyond happy you’re here, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
Firstly, have you checked out my print store? If you have, thank you!! If you haven’t yet, hurry up! Haha! Seriously though, I’d love to know what you think. It’s obviously just in the ‘baby’ stages and no doubt there will be some ‘teething’ issues, as I navigate my way around this brave new world. I have to admit, I have seriously, only randomly selected the 14 images that are currently available, out of folders (and folders) of my very favourites. As such I will be regularly changing it up and updating images for you, as I wade through the thousands of other images I’ve created since 2013, and will continue to create into the future.
Secondly… This is me! In case you didn’t know:
Jewels is my name, and I’ve gone 43 turns around the sun. I'm an Australian gypsy, a mother to two glorious teenage daughters, and a self-taught photographer, residing along the east coast of Northern NSW. I’m a Capricorn Tiger, and an 11. I’m a Thalassophile and a Pluviophile. Animal obsessed, travel lover, barefoot walker, big big hugger, wonderluster, chronic disease sufferer, exclamation mark extremist, essential oil advocate, vegetarian nutrition freak that loves to ‘preach’ (although I say teach) all things good for you, but all too often doesn’t follow her own rules when it comes to all things good for me, disorganised dreamer, love and light giver, universal higher power believer, mega introvert, INFP personailty, yogie wanna-be, chaotic imperfect perfectionist, music groupie, feminine paradox, curious cat and all round normal weirdo. Nice to meet you! :D Now, when you finish reading this, I’d really love to learn who you are too, in the comments below.
So lastly… I guess what I should be writing down is, wtf my intentions are here in this journal. Hmmmm. At the moment your guess is as good as mine. Haha! Maybe it will be full of wondrous surprises. Maybe it will be full of shit. Maybe it will be full of whimsical, nonsensical Jewelszee wisdoms, accidental tourist style travel stories from a home-body traveller, tips n’ tricks from someone who can’t cook but loves food and the kitchen, and perhaps even the occasional split-second moment of pristine clarity in this beautiful wild world that we all share. I’m pretty nervous but excited. How fantasmic would it be if you were just a little bit excited too. I hope to see you 'round here often. ;)
Big love and hugs
