- finish all christmas shopping! (and the best bit WRAPPING!) (need to get paid to finish this task)
- clean up rooms (I have taken over too bedrooms in my house!!)
- create create create!!! take photos of some new exciting things for the shop. and get making on some new exciting things.
- take a photo of my christmas tree so i can show you how pretty it is.
i dont like posting without a photo. but i really have nothing to show you :(
What I have started to notice is that these very successful stores, e.g. ashleyg and the black apple have such hugely successful (or would you say popular) blogs. Everything stems from their blog. kitty genius and inside a black apple. When they are next posting something original or rare so people can be there the second they post it. Right down to what they ate for breakfast. They have a following of people.
I love posting blogs, i love reading blogs and i love having a blog. I dont want my blog to be just about every time I post something new in my shop. But then again that is largely what I am excited about. What interests people enough to come back to my blog? I would love to know if anyone did stalk my blog, like I stalk so many others. hehe.
Well that was just a little bit of self expression for you all. Maybe you need to expect more of this.
But a post is not a post without a picture!
just a little Polaroid of mine
Just though I would mention that two more of my fashionable story ladies are now available as prints in my shop
They are to go with the previous 5 I posted a while back! I had so much fun making this series and i cant wait to explore more artistic methods in the near future!!!
Hope everyone is looking forward to christmas~!!
hope everyone had a nice weekend. when i get around to it and i stop being lazy im going to post come pictures of architecture in helsinki. I saw them play on sat night and they were great!

Sorry it has been so long, it has been such a crazy time for me! This is one of the reasons, the Hills Craft Fair. I applied, thinking I wouldnt get in, and then found out i was in, but it was in 4 days time, so i crazyly got everything orgainised just in time.
It was a pretty good day, fairly quiet, but I didnt know what to expect so it was a good experience. Im in another one on the seventh of december, so you are anywhere near the castle hill showground, come on by, i think it starts at 3pm..
Hope all is well.

shes not wallflower
and here is lily
i have been working on this series for a few weeks now and am finally ready to share! there are currently four works at this stage, i might be creating a few more, but at this stage i will upload these over the next few days.
the idea came from a beauitful piece of fabric i found, and my want to include that with a drawing. i also wanted to take my drawings a bit further, trying new things, new techniques, etc etc.
i used reference photos from my boyfriends clothing label photos foreshore dynamic which i urge you to check out!
there are prints available and they will slowly be added to my shop so if you are interested, keep your eye out
i would love to hear your thoughts, as im trying to develop as an artist and there are so many wonderful people out there that i would love to hear some opinions!!!
there are even two sizes available!!! :)
in other news i have been working a fair bit lately on a new project, trying to focus more on improving my drawing skills as well as introducing digital elements in to a work. when i am happy with them i shall show all soon!!!!
I have been working very hard and been very busy
these past few days
so lots of new images
will soon surface.
i was inspired a few days ago to create some little ink and watercolour works
there are five in totally, and i will be slowly making them available in my etsy shop
if you are interested they are only $25 US and for an original drawing, i think thats rather good :D :D
stay tuned for the others
I recently orders some fine art prints of one of my illustrations. They came out rather nicely and so they are on offer for sale at my shop
They have been printed professionally onto fine art paper and would be a lovely addition to your illustrationish collection. Or whatever. So please. Have a look!!
she is finally framed and up on my wall!
this is a beautiful original drawing and watercolour from one of my favourite artists catherine campbell a.k.a my folk lover. I bought this a few weeks ago because i just fell in love with it the moment i saw it!
This will be the first of many for my collection of originals and prints, I have a print from kjs design on its way to my wall too!!!
Go check out her shop, you will love it!
I am going to submit these to my redbubble account where you can check them out with my other drawings and buy cards and prints.
however, for those looking, do you think you would be interested in some fine art prints that would be signed as well. the redbubble organises all the printing and things for me so they are not actually signed and i wont actually see them. I am getting some fine art prints made at the moment of some other drawings and if they turn out nice would people be interested in these as well.
I would also sometime like to sell the originals... anyone interested?
thanks everyone! :D

A while ago i encouraged my boyfriend to open up an etsy store, with the hope that he might sell a few of his handprinted tees! unfortunately, while he has been doing really well selling through another site, (check it out here and by promoting through his myspace so far etsy has not served him well. So i just thought id give a little promo and urge you to check out his etsy store!!!! Let me know what you think!
not something that i typically spend my time doing, however a recent project had my drawing lots of abstract drawings that ultimately created an animation. i should think about uploading that but it seems too tricky.
anyway, these are a selection of 30 drawings i did that all "flowed" from one to the next.
they would look rather lovely framed as a part of a series and if you are interested in such a think these ones are available for sale over in my etsy shop
they are only $28 each and all in my post below you will see an offer regarding shipping which you should also take advantage of!
