all the good things.........

Hello everyone!

As you guys may have noticed from my lack of new content and recent comments in the Bushfires book drive post that I have decided that the time has come for me to officially stop posting and creating on A Little Lime - this will be effective from 25th January, 2020.

There is no story or drama behind the decision, I have simply found that I don't have the same interest in drawing that I used to and I have never had the ability create and share unless I feel excited about what I am doing. I also want to minimise my internet presence and focus more on my family (first grandchild arriving in 2020).

So, that is really it, essentially.

I hope that during my time in the tangling community I was able to contribute something innovative and unexpected and that during your visits here you were able to experience something a little different.

I feel that I am stepping back on a really positive note - the recent book drive means that with your help so far I have been able to do…

Overwhelmed....

I just wanted to create a quick post today to say how overwhelmed I was to see the response to my small attempt to help Wildlife Victoria in their bushfire efforts. I really had no idea what would happen when I put it out there yesterday. I was hoping to be able to donate, maybe, a couple of hundred dollars!
I think that in the face of all the problems our world is currently facing it is so easy to feel discouraged and ineffectual in our ability to do anything. Your response has uplifted me and given me hope that maybe we can. So thank you. I know that events of any type usually have the best response within the first 24 hours, so I have already forwarded a payment to Wildlife Victoria today and you can see the details in the screenshot below  (my address and the receipt number have been removed for the sake of privacy). I will be making a final donation on the 25th after all sales are complete.
Thanks again, guys, you are amazing!

Bushfires

Hello everyone! It's been a while, right? I have had many "welfare check" emails and messages from you guys over the past few weeks, I wanted to let you know that yes, we are fine. The closest bushfires are quite a distance away in the east of my home state and are no immediate threat to us besides the very poor air quality we are experiencing.
So, thank you to those who have reached out. I appreciate your thoughfulness :)
I know that many of you have been watching around the world at the bushfire disaster unfolding for months now across a number of Australian states, and the terrible toll this is taking not only on our fellow Australians and the emergency services, but also on our native animals. The large scale destruction of their bush environments is truly awful. The real cost to them will not be known until it is over, but there are concerns for a number of species that were already pushed to the limits and under threat even before this disaster.
So I want to do so…
