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.

Do pictures really speak a thousand words??

So the photos.....
Here are the ones we took, of which there really weren't many at all.
I figure that after the photo bonanza of the twins birth, you can just imagine
that it was all very similar...
minus the water of course

This is later on the morning he was born, trying to make sure to keep spending time with the other babies so  they don't feel too left out.....and the others are getting eyefulls of their new brother

A very brand new Zarrathustra Cyrus Wildcat

And one of the only photos we've got of the beautiful Annetta.....love Currawong in the mirror :)

Most of us sitting round adoring him...

Can you spot the baby??

A happy Currawong and Max with a stethoscope

Beautiful little Zarra with the vest I crocheted just for him. 
The white spiral is handspun bunny fluff.....the softest thing in the universe!!

Looking very regal

Beautiful boy

I know it's probably overkill, but what the hey :)

Three little angels....especially when they're asleep!!

The thinker.....I think his name is apt!

Beautiful big sister Tiger Lilly

Meanwhile, out on the verandah.....

Looking a bit serious....

Ah no!!!!  Call off the hounds!!!

The magical Currawong multi-tasking....reading the big kids Harry Potter,
whilst also being a bed for the two babies that he got to sleep at the same time.....
What a man! :)

Hope you enjoyed!


  1. Awesome! Love the pic with Currawong in the mirror :) And the crocheted bunny fluff vest is totally gorgeous.

  8. What a beautiful blog and wonderful family you have! Congratulations on your very stunning baby. I actually found your blog through readin Majik Faerie - to show the six degrees of seperation - I currently live in Meadows (used to live in WIllunga) and I think I recognise you from these areas? I think I bought some of your creations from you at Maccelsfield market years ago?

  9. How many degrees of seperation?? About one here I reckon :) You do know me from those areas, and yeah, I started up the Macclesfield market. How trippy is that!? And if you bought some creations from me......you should tell me what they are! I bet I remember them... Thanks for taking the time to comment, and for digging my blog :)


I love your comments, and your feedback......it makes this whole blogging thing worthwhile. Peace and blessings to you!
