Birthday Jelly

ok so it's my best friend Alex's birthday today, and i thought i would make something extra special to celebrate tonight!
So last night i spent 4 hours stiring, waiting, warming, cooling and carefully pouring. . . in hope of making something that looks even half as amazing as this.

I have no idea if it has worked, and will not know until I take it out of the tin at the party tonight, so i'm either going to be left with something spectacular or a giant pile of jiggling failure. . .

Will you all please cross your fingers for me?


Meet Tilda

I mentioned a little while ago that I was heading interstate on some secret cute and fluffy business. Well she's here now and all settled in.

I would like you to meet Tilda.

For those of you who have had or have a pet would understand that they can add to your life emensly. For sure they're a lot of work - particularly when they're young - but to me the rewards make it all undoubtedly worth while.

Each day I am constantly entertained by her excitement for life. She explores and pounces on everything including our older dog Lillie, and has SO much fun doing it. They're always smiling, don't hold grudges and are full of pure joy - I think humans can and should learn a lot from dogs.

Tilda spends most of her time like this. . .

and this. . .

and this. I think she will make the perfect studio dog one day.

Such a little munchkin, I can't believe how in love I am.

Patterns and Print

I have enrolled in a two day screen printing course at Harvest Textiles in Melbourne next month and i'm very excited about it!

I've always had a thing for patterns, as well as drawing miscelanious shapes I can't wait to learn how to repeat my patterns and then print them on fabric, eeep! :)

Flinders Lane

I recently bought a camera which is actually smaller than my mobile phone, I carry it with me at all times for moments like this . . .

Take time to look up from the streets which seem to get more and more crowded everyday.

New Editions

So do you remember my juice glass collection?
Here are a couple of exciting new editions that were hunted down by my lovely parents in Coffs Harbour, NSW.
The broke the bank paying 10c for one and 50c for the other. But they're beautiful!

The tiny one with the oranges is my favorite to date

Envélop - Issue one

So I promised I would tell you about this a little while ago, last year I was lucky enough to concentrate solely on designing my very own magazine.
It's called Envélop and is a series of interviews with 4 largely unknown creatives.
It is currently for Sale at The Sticky Institute in Melbourne

Issue one.

Issue one Launch, at 1000pound bend in Melbourne, October 2009.

Set up at 1000pound bend

The logo doing freaky things!

So the reason I'm posting about this is that the feedback I've received about issue one in the past few months has been so much more than I had ever expected, so . . . I am pumped to announce that issue two is in the works! It's very early stages at the moment, but hopefully I can get it out and on the streets in the new year, Eep!
