Shot with my Canon 400D.

Placed in the top ten in a challenge in The Collector’s Corner – July 09

A coiled tape-measure on a pink background – we spend so much time measuring ourselves, measuring others, comparing and competing. Featured in the group “Domestic Art – home is where the art is” – Feb 2009

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
