Beautiful readers, Julie Gibbons Creates is switching off until Wednesday 1st August!

In search of some warmer weather. In search of more soul wisdom. In search of space and quiet. I’ve picked the perfect place for it – the simply fabulous Stoneleigh Abbey.

(You can check out some of my photos of the place on my Stoneleigh Abbey Flickr set. I’m taking my camera and hope to capture some more gems. This photo of the orangerie in the park was the first photo of mine to be published.)

My art store is closed and I’m taking a social media sabbatical (yes, even Instagram!)

I’ll be holding you all in my heart and hoping to find you creatively magnificent on my return xo
