Guess which artist I visited??

I recently arrived home after a whirlwind holiday overseas and as I type this post I finally feel like I’m starting to get over my jet lag. My husband was overseas for work and so my daughter and I planned to meet him at the end of his working stint.

My daughter and I traveled over to England where we spent our first two days with………………… drum roll please………………………. the ever so amazing and talented Tamara Laporte aka: Willowing and her beautiful family.  Tam, her husband Andy and their two gorgeous boys Dylan and Elliot were so warm and welcoming. Louise and I loved spending time with them. For those of you who are wondering, I must say, Tam is certainly as beautiful, lovely, down to earth, caring and awesome in person as the persona you see in her videos. Thank you so very much Tam ans Andy for sharing a few days in the life of the Laporte/Mason family with Louise and I. Thank you for making Louise and I feel welcome and at home with the four of you. It certainly was a pleasure to meet the four of you and was the highlight of my trip.

In the above photo Tam and I are laughing as every time we tried to take a photo of ourselves together Elliot would try and touch my mouth. It was funnier than it now sounds. =D

 After a few days with Tam and her family Louise and I met up with my husband and spent a few days in London before heading to the city of Love, Paris. From Paris we traveled to Bern in Switzerland where we stayed with friends.

I took an art journal with me (of course) but only had snippets of time here and there to use it, so I’m going to finish of a few pages and will show you some pics in the next post.

It was a great trip but I am so, so glad to home with my boys, Jack and James who stayed home with their Nana and Aunty.

  1. oh amazing trip kylie and how lovelty to catch up with tam……i would love to catch up with some my os online bloggers…we must organise a local one ?


  2. Hey there Jen, Meeting Tam and her family was certainly the highlight. A local meet up sounds great. We have no excuse for not meeting up as we live so close. I think you live closer to me than any other blogger/artist that I follow. Sounds like fun. Maybe we can arrange an art weekend in Bendigo. xo


  3. Hi Kylie!

    Sounds like you had a wonderful trip! Love all the pics! You have a beautiful family and seeing all the smiling faces is hart warming indeed. :o)

    Thank you so much for your support and visit to my new blog. I wish I could join the Lifebook 2013 but with the South African Rand's value nowadays I can not afford it at this stage. I will however visit and keep up to date of everything you are doing!

    Keep well
    Love and peace
    Monica (Ansota) 😀
