Happy New Year



Pictures I took of the Sydney fireworks down at Rozelle bay, so pretty reflected on the water.
Better get some sleep now 🙂

Wishing you all a wonderful new year and decade! I look forward to seeing what amazing things the new year has ahead.

I’m not really into new year resolutions, but a few things I’d like to do are:
– Have some camera fun, I just got a new DSLR, and I have a holga sitting on my shelf waiting to have a play.
– More designs for etsy, including some gocco printed stuff.
– More art!! And maybe even some exhibitions, who knows.

With Kid gloves


I love these cute embroidered napkins from With Kid Gloves. Designs available as napkins, coasters, dish towels and pillows.

Christmas 09


I decorated an old bird cage, and put tea lights inside, this was christmas eve night, with all the candles lit.


The table decorations.
The tree! You can also see the pretty bunting I made hanging up behind the tree.

My year

What a year it has been, I jam packed an awful lot in, and did a lot to get myself involved in the art and design scene. This little summary hopefully sums up the most significant parts of my year. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of my year, and inspired me along in my journey.
I look forward to what 2010 has in store.

How do you store your fabric?

I have heaps of fabric, and lots of small scrappy pieces and I need to find a good way to store it all, considering I don’t have a lot of space, and it needs to be kept air tight, as our house has high moisture levels. So how do you store your fabric? any suggestions?

I am tempted to make this as a little pre- Christmas treat, yum 🙂

I love the balloons in these wedding photos by Jessica Claire, what a beautiful idea. Would be a fun idea to use for a party .. hmm.. maybe a tea party, who wants to have a fun tea party with balloons, pretty tea cups and candles, now that would be fun 🙂
