Hellena Post - Creatrix
I've tried on so many uniforms and badges that now I'm just me - mother of 8 children and all that entails, flowmad, and human animal parent. Writer of this living book of a blog, philosopher, and creatrix of hand dyed and spun crocheted wearable art. I gave up polite conversation years ago, and now I dive into the big one's.....birth, sex, great wellness, life, passion, death and rebirth.

I seem to have lost contact with my old blog. I don't know how it happened, but when I tried to log onto it, I just got brought here, with a brand new blog. Maybe it's symbolic. Maybe it's a really good thing. Start fresh, clean slate and all that business.
So I will. Start again that is.
We're living on a community in the Adelaide Hills, about to have our 4th baby together, and my 5th child all up. I'm writing books and making things that flow, and trying to start up an internet business doing it all. Inviting you into the world I'm creating from fibre and attitudes, Quantum Physics and plain old ancient's knowledge, wool and mohair and bunny fleece and crochet and felt, and just whatever comes to hand at the time.
I've been creating for 7 years now, and the time has come for my art's Saturn Return, to mature and come of age, and launch itself into the next stage of it's life. From past experience, and reading, and checking stuff out on the internet, and words from the grass roots, I've decided to steer my way towards Europe and America, where it seems the whole handcrafted movement has hit long ago, and there is a greater population of alternative folk.
I reckon I'm a genius, and a revolution waiting to happen. I've got a whole new approach, and techniques, and attitudes that can lead to an explosion of creativity in your life, that will leak across into all aspects of your creativity, as you decide to try and make things yourself in your own way. When you get the incredible power and beauty of things that people make, when they're in love with what they're doing.
Passion and love are all that really matter when you get down to it. We've convinced ourselves for far too long that we have to make compromises, and do our duty, and earn a days work before we do what we really want to do. Bollocks I say. You have to just do it. Follow that passion and do what you want and the universe magically makes it all as good as the feeling that inspires you to just do what you will.
Stay tuned. I'm going to be making things and taking photo's and videos and organising events, and showing some of the beautiful photo's we've taken along the way.
Everything is connected.
