We’ve all heard that old saying one door shuts and another opens and it was very much the situation for me this past week.
The same week my contract with Earthlee Angel Therapies at Burpengary came to an end and I chose not to renew it, I was gifted with the offer of using the space of the Signal Room which is part of the Railway Station, located in the South West corner of the Park at Old Petrie Town, North Pine Country Park, Dayboro Road, Kurwongbah by my lovely friend and family member, who has always been supportive of me and my work since the first day I walked into his Gallery in the park some 20 years ago now, Mr Terry Saleh, Spiritual Artist and Healer of Terry Saleh Art Global Enterprises.
The Railway Station was originally North Pine Station, opened in 1888 and it served as a Cobb & Co Station and Railway Station for over a century. It was later re-named Petrie Station after pioneer Tom Petrie. In 1992 it was moved to the park and it was officially re-opened by The Honourable Leneen Forde AC, Governor General of Queensland at the time in 1993.
With the help of my Warrior Woman mum, in less than 24 hours over a two day period, we cleaned and transformed the inside of the building and set it up for me to start practicing in as of this Sunday.
To have a space of my own to work from and create the Steiner Based Dolls and Toys in is just the most blessed gift I could have received this coming Easter. No longer will I need to cart boxes of materials and supplies constantly, loading and unloading my ute, or having craft materials scattered throughout my house which is where I have been making the dolls and toys from. Absolutely chuffed, excited and delighted is the only words close to how I was feeling when I accepted Terry’s offer. Filled with awe inspiring gratitude when I sat quietly in the space on my own yesterday also comes somewhat close to that experience.
Please note change of availability with this move starting this Easter Sunday:
Sunday: 8am to 1pm you will find me in the Signal Room.
Monday to Wednesday: 9am to 3pm at the Signal Room or at Lawnton.
If you would like to make an appointment please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a vision in my head of things I would like to do with the space in due course but really didn’t think we could get it ready as quickly as we have done, so I am pretty darn pleased with the transformation so far. If you are passing by or just want to come and say hi – you are most welcome to do so, have a cuppa with me and lap up the peace and beauty of this space whilst you are at it.
Cheers and for those who celebrate it – Many Blessings for your Easter too.
