This all began because of love




Imagine if someone loved you so much that each day he would capture a picture of you..while you were sleeping, getting ready to go out or while you were getting proposed to.
Well this is exactly what Photographer Shane Yuhas is doing.
Shane Yuhas captures his darlin & the details of their surroundings every day for the first year of their marriage. How lovely is this!

All mine


I'm pretty much all set up now in my studio. woo hoo. I just have to move in a small fridge and find a love seat to read and lounge on, however the rest is truly happening! Its great because Vinnie's is just round the corner so every time I go to my studio I get to see if Vinnie's has any bargains.

Paper face


I found these on Alyssa's blog "I like nice things"- (one of my top favourite blogs) by artist Mali Azima. How delicate and delightful are these!? I appreciate them very much and think they deserve a round of applause.

birthday wishes..

So this Thursday the 25th of February it is my birthday. I thought I would share something a little fun with you. I am having a birthday party and these are what my invites look like..and seeing it is my 21st, I thought why not do everything I always wanted to do, why have 1 theme when you can have 5! ha ha. In case you don't have a magnified glass and cant read the invites these are the themes.
  • Peter Pan
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • The Circus
  • Alice In Wonderland
  • Marie Antoinette
I am very excited and I'm sure ill treat you to some pictures soon. x

something sweet for the weekend.


Scrumptious. how sweet are these- a chocolate cake boat and marshmallow clouds- it does make sense for them to either be made of marshmallows or white fairy floss don't you think? you can purchase a bag from Herriott Grace. yes please.

I found this via 'Casanova Wong' and thought it was quite amusing.
It is titled "how genetics work"
Enjoy.

My new favourite thing in the world

what a marvellous piece of art and beauty..simply stunning...

"Wake up"

I like to collect...

What do you collect?
Isn't it funny that we collect things. I collect china, plates and tea cups. I also collect old children's books or books with covers I like...
How about you?
I thought it would be cool to do a series on what people collect, so send me in a picture of your collection and a small statement of why you collect it..and what you love about it...

To start us off...
Betty Jo she has a blog I have recently been looking at called "Lino Forest". Betty Jo "designs and creates unique, one-of-a-kind jewellery and time pieces.They are all crafted from funky vintage lino,recycled laminex, gorgeous pre-loved buttons and pretty embroidered doilies and tapestries that someones grandma lovingly stitched.I transform these forgotten pieces of domestic bric-a-brac into keepsake brooches, pendants and clocks with the memories loving attached."
How sweet make sure you check out her blog.

Late Love

(This first one is not their work)

Happy (late) Valentines day. I hope you had a day full of love. I had a date with my friend Hannah as no boys love us yet.


I saw "Valentines Day" it was average I thought. Kind of seemed like a re-make of 'Love Actually' but not as good. some parts were lovely though. As a picture perfect treat check out these stunning photographs by Vania + Christine of Simply Bloom Photography. just breath taking.

Here we go

So I have officially moved into my studio. It is still in the process of being set up. I have put on lay by a nice desk which my work will be made on. I'm looking for a chair and a little love seat- I'm hoping for pink or velvet-sorry Dalyce I know you hate that. I haven't been feeling extremely motivated lately due to many things..some I'm sure which will soon appear in and throughout my work. I need to start painting again. talk soon.
have a happy day.
