Kelly Doust's inspired by...

The Crafty Minx is also a crafty mum - she's got a new book out, The Crafty Kid - super cute. This is what the author Kelly Doust is inspired by... "Late last year I went to see UK comedian Daniel Kitson at the Opera House performing his show, 66a Church Road - A Lament Made of Memories and Kept in Suitcases. I can’t tell you how often I’ve thought of it since – it really struck a chord. "Kitson performs a monologue about the time he spent renting the house of the title in London, and all the recollections tied up in it. It’s funny and sad and really got me thinking about the notion of home… how it’s not just where the house is, and how we place so much importance upon material things both to ground and define us. "I love my own home and being around all my things, but it reminded me that I can be happy anywhere, and with very little – a house is just a shell, after all. It’s the weight of our memories that makes it a home, and those people we share them with."
