Tomfo Yamba Scandi

Where we trod, a new piece in the Yamba Scandi Collection + a free gift tag printable


Sometimes inspiration comes from where somebody else trod before you.


you, trod with them.

just the beauty of the landscape.


I think it’s all that and a little bit more.


A few weeks back my folks came to town.

And we went here.

The Breakwall at Turners Beach Yamba.


It’s already been the inspiration for my Yamba Scandi Collection.


And I think there’ll be many more designs to come

from this spot.


It’s one of the first places we trod as a family.

The clouds and the rocks are different every time.

And we take all our visitors there too.



I saw this before…

In the rocks.

And trees.



This day,

we marvelled at the rocks and textures.
With new eyes,


my dad said he saw this…


So I made it into these.


It’s the newest piece in my Yamba Scandi Collection


“Where we trod”… from the Breakwall at Turners Beach.



Was that a bison on that rock?

Or a dog?

Or a deer with no horns?

We saw many things on the rocks that day.


But I think it’s the people we were with…

who always BELIEVE in us,



where we trod.








I thought you might like a free gift tag printable.

Because you’re treading along with me, (thanks for coming BTW, I love having you here)

You can download it here by clicking on the image above.

Print out onto A4 card, then cut out and hole punch and add some string or ribbon,

and you’ll be all set for when you need a gift tag in a hurry.


Have a wonderful weekend guys,


Ever been inspired by where you trod or who trod with you?

    Thanks Rachel, I’ve found the inspiration to design here, it’s taken a crazy year before of near catastrophe to finally see a new direction, funny how that happens. I’d love to chat with you, that would be awesome, have a lovely weekend. X

  12. I so need to pay more attention to where I tread – mindfulness is such a beautiful thing by itself but when you see it result in gorgeous creations like yours – wow, all the more reason to become more mindful xx
