WOYWW 433 - New Ivy Moonboard

On my desk today...
... my completed New Ivy Moonboard, letters I need to respond to, my prayer beads, more correspondence in front of my wee Celtic pen-box, and a notebook I made years ago, and which I recently found down the back of a cupboard 👏

A closer look at the moonboard...
Left-hand page
A misty Autumn morning (we've had a few of those this week), some earthy fabric patterns, and a beautiful muse, lost in thought... I've added various stickers to this magazine fashion shot.

Right-hand page
The abundance of the season, and some words associated with the ivy moon:

good luck (why ivy is often included in bridal bouquets)
fertility (another reason for the above!)

Now I MUST crack on writing my very overdue letters! I am not the best penpal, I'm afraid 😖

  2. Moonboards as opposed to mood boards that's interesting and so effective. Quite haunting I think. Well done Claire

  3. Hi Claire, you put me to shame in the letter department; I can't remember the last time I actually hand wrote a letter to someone. Love the moon board, it's really evocative. Sarah #18

  4. I hand write letters often I have 3 pen pals and we write a lot to each other... I have never heard of moonboards before I shall have a wee look after this comment... love your work... May #11

  5. Happy WOYWW. I had not heard of moon boards either, but loved the images/words on your's. Ali x #19

  6. I really love all the autumnal features in your moonboard - I didn't know about them either and will definitely follow the link. Autumn is my favourite season of the year, I love the colours, light, everything!

  7. Beautiful autumn moon board! And isn't it the quality of letters that count, instead of quantity? Well at least I tell myself that because I am way behind with writing letters back too ;) Happy WOYWW xo Cheetarah #21

  8. Lovely piece, Claire. Still struggling to get round! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #2 XxX

  9. Loving your Moonboards must pop over to find out more. Have a great crafty woyww, Angela x17x

  10. I love that you're writing letters, good on ya! And the moon board is so nice, and you've taught me something (the Ivy). Love the picture of the coloured gourds, kinda adds to the feeling of abundance to see all those colours. Clever.

  11. Beautiful. I just love those pumpkins!
