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.

And I still manage to fit in the time to make something new.....





Yes it's true.

Got my beautiful boy going to school for the first time ever, (and he's loving it) a 2 month old bubba, the irrascible Miss Moon who's a 2 year old (say no more), Lovely Lilly who still need attention even though she's so easy and gentle and self amusing, my gorgeous hunk of a fella to keep entertained and MINE (oh my, did I sound jealous and possesive then??), fellow community dwellers to keep up to date with, work with, and try to keep real with, my mother and big daughter who have a whole world of issues to themselves, this internet life I seem to be diving into more and more, my addictive early morning bike rides and sing fests, 2 little creatures, a cat and a dog, that need loving, a science fiction addiction that needs feeding in the form of sci-fi movies, series, etc to be watched, not to mention the music addiction, minutes to be typed, budgets to be budgeted, desktop publishing and flyers to be created, photo's to be taken so I can seriously start trying to sell things on Etsy, internet research to be done, books to be read, pictures to be printed, dishes to be done, food to be eaten, nappies to change, clothes to be washed, jaunts to the outside world to be enjoyed, the beach to visit, fruit to be picked and eaten, friends to catch up with, felted creatures to be made.......

Puff, puff, puff......

AND I STILL MANAGE TO FIND TIME TO MAKE!!!

Thank you, thank you very much!! (said in an voice impersonating Elvis Presley...)

I quite like this little number. It didn't look like all that amazing a deal until the beautiful Queen of Lizards put it on.....

It's out of hand spun and hand dyed sheep fleece, and as you can see, wearable art in many different ways. I'm also trying to make another thing out of mohair, but I've already pulled it apart twice, and that was after I'd already made things out of the two separate dye pots and then decided I didn't like them....so stay posted and I'll see if that particular baby can actually get born!

Enjoy!

  1. LOL, you are allowed to be jealous and possessive over that man ;)
    I completely understand the constructing / deconstructing thing, I too have had a bit of a block creatively for the last few weeks. Keep at it, the flow will return!

  2. Oh I'm sooooo happy I found you at last! I have your portfolio from when we met back in 2006 (when we were both newly pregnant). DH and I were on our 6 month tour. You graciously invited us to your Mom's place, showed us your work and then made me a gorgeous skirt. Congrats on your new baby boy! And you had a 2006 girl! Lovely. :-)

  3. Hi Hellena,
    I'm completely in love with your creations and feel immensley inspired that you have five children, so much to do, and yet still find time to create. To not create is unimaginable, and yet even with two children there are times when it feels somewhat challenging. You are most fortunate to have a partner who is on the same journey as yourself in many respects. Can't wait to see your wonderful creations at Tribal Fibres.

    Cheers
