Meet Rufus, one of my Rosehip Beings I created today. I love the ready made crowns that appear on these rustic looking rosehips – making it the perfect head for a little Prince or Princess – simply adorable. There was a hint of Autumn in the air as I walked past the rose bushes. The delicate rose petals had returned to the earth leaving hops of vibrant red and orange glowing in the early morning sunshine.

Playing with nature comes naturally to me…it is something I have always done ever since I was a child. The child within has never left me, and I am thankful for that. I think its important for children to see their parents and teachers playing and creating with nature.

Imagination is more important than knowledge” ~ Albert Einstein

I believe there is an innate need in all of us to be creative and nature has a wonderful way of igniting our imagination; nurturing our creative intelligence.

Sharing nature art projects with both children and adults gifts me immeasurable joy. To see groups of adults creating little stick people is a thrill, for I know they will share this new found creativity with the children in their lives. Over the last couple of years I have had the pleasure of seeing little (and large) stick beings popping up all over the world made both by children and adults – this truly makes my heart sing!

The delightful rosehip heads come in all different shapes, shades and sizes – offering yet another wonderful reminder of how unique and beautiful we all are.
