ava collage by laura redburn

last week when i was preparing to put a photo on my instagram for my petplan blog post, i realised in the moment i wanted to share something a little different. and then i thought – yes! a collage! – as you may know this year i have really been struggling creatively. i’ve made a couple things here and there, but overall my creative spark just totally fizzled. this happened to me a few years ago actually. for almost a whole year my creativity was totally kaput. i tried making things but i hated them, or i just couldn’t get in the flow. i didn’t pressure myself too much, but it did eventually come back. and (hopefully!) it seems to be coming back again now.

to be honest, i couldn’t say i have one specific memory or story about ava that stands tall above the rest. i guess, apart from one. cliche as it is, the first few days that we got her, as well as deciding her name. it was between rita, brenda (after my boyfriends nan), and ava. we couldn’t decide so put the names in a hat ..so ava it was meant to be!

that tiny, cheeky, fluffy, ferocious bundle of energy. with huge absolutely crazy eyes that made us fall instantly in love with her.
