Techni-coloured dreams

Lately I've had lomography on the mind! The results are just like my techni-coloured daydreams

I have given into the dreams and treated myself to a Diana mini! I can't wait to see the results, I'm half way through the film and am dying to know what's going on in there! I'm a little bit worried I have snapped the film in my eagerness to get started, but i guess i'll just have to keep shooting

all images are from google images

Only time will tell what the result will be, Stay tuned!


Fryerstown fair

Last weekend we headed up to Fryerstown in the victorian goldfields. The town usually consists of only a closed school and a town hall. Their annual antiques fair however happens to be the largest in Australia! There was SO much to see I had a lot of trouble taking it all in! we saw so many weird and wonderful things though! check out the picture below

I really wanted to buy this vintage gum ball machine and make a terrarium in it, how cool would that be? unfortunately when i went back to get it, it had been snapped up! i wonder what they're doing with it . . .

Gav had to touch this to take the photo . . . what a guy

we finished off the day with a picnic, the way all good days should end

creative mid week day

So tomorrow is a mid week public holiday to celebrate Australia Day! Yay! I plan on having a very creative day, I want to sew a top from this fabric

Make cute terrariums in some vintage glue bottles, do some screen printing and have a BBQ with friends!

Sounds like I have a few too many plans to fit in to 24 hours but we will see how we go!

I can stich a rainbow

There has been so many fundraising initiatives pop up this week for the flood victims of QLD in Australia, Including Art 4 heart an art auction (unfortunately i was outbid early on in the emily beth prints, but at least the funds are rising!) Today I came across crochet a rainbow, which i have signed up for! It is a Sarah - London charity craft initiative Crochet a rainbow! Crafters from all around the world are crocheting and donating granny squares which will be turned into rugs to benefit those affected by the recent floods in Australia.
So far there are 138 of us and I hope the number will continue to grow! head here for more information on how to get involved

I can't wait to share my granny squares with you, so stay tuned!

skate and create

Being surrounded by members of the rollerblading community I'm often exposed to skating edits which I find visually very interesting when they're done well. Below is a skateboarding Edit which is one of the best I've seen to date head here for more info

Weekend Trip

Summer Holidays were awesome i'll fill you in on what I got up to very soon.
In the meantime, i've been back at work for a week now and I was having a few holiday withdrawals! So we headed to Phillip Island for the weekend, we had such a good time and explored the entire island, driving from end to end and almost every look out / attraction along the way!
Here is a little bit of what we got up to. . .

Relaxed with a glass of wine and enjoyed the amazing sunset views

The Nobbies / Seal Rock

Spotted Koala Bears

enjoyed an upside down Latte. . . bazaar hey?

Explored rockpools

Pyramid Rock, probably our favorite spot of the trip, I would love to picnic on that perfectly square patch of grass on the rock!

I had such a good weekend, I'm not sure if it's done much to cure my summer holiday withdrawals though!
