my week in 6...week 4!

So this week was pretty much all about moving all our junk around and making the tiny bedroom in our house into a studio all of my own!

It's inside, with windows AND I can shut the door when i'm done, it's amazing!! It does mean i'm not underthestairs anymore but i'm good with that for the moment for sure.

Here it is, in obscure photo form...

pretty cool huh.

Ah, so here i am finally with my favourite 6 images for this week!
No theme, just cool/ cute/ awesome things i've found along the way this week.

"Her loves a pony" by Kristal Melson, limites edition prints by bespoke letterpress...the little girl in me wants one super bad!

um, possibly the coolest baby G out there and who could possibly NOT want one! Oh why is my birthday so so far away?

my week in 6...week 2

So this week has been a crazy roller coaster ride of well, just crazy.

Parcels arrived from overseas friends with lovely surprise belated christmas pressies, i've been up to my eyeballs in hooks and string and drills and screws and about a thousand other things getting my paintings ready to hang for Monday re-opening of XoXo (the cafe where my show is) and who could forget the newest addition to my collection of creations.

well, here's a little sneak peek ..

Edinburgh at christmas time, here's me wishing for another trip overseas already!

Probably some of the cutest earrings in the world and I got them for christmas from a lovely Sophie friend!

"Good at breaking pretty things" (my newest creation)

it really was a mad world.

a couple of other new ones..

the cutest little christmas decoration ever all the way from Denmark in a christmas package for me from one lovely camilla!

Gearing up for my first solo show!

So here I am, 3 days away from hanging my first solo show and i am freaking out! I'm sure it will all come together in the end but right it's panic stations that's for sure. Getting everything ready, varnished, set to actually BE on a wall where the general public can see (and judge!).

I will keep you all posted on my progress and hopefully, maybe see you there?

wish me luck!

my week in 6...week 1

So here we are, in 2010 and this is week one of how many? Well, we'll see... Some trawling of the internet, some sifting through old things and just some general faffing about has brought these 6 to me.

Brilliant crochet trees

So i'll admit, i'm a little obsessed at the moment but how cool are these doilies!? Especially the black one!

A cute as anything 'bird planter' by prettyrandomobjects at

Who doesn't remember (and secretly love) Strawberry Shortcake?!

I wish this had been made specially for me that's for sure!

I've been away...

Dear all of you out there (who may or may not be following my lovely blog-ness...),
I apologise for my lack of contact over this busy period, I took off to amazing Fiji for the christmas break with the fam and i'll be honest, wasn't looking too forward to coming back home.

Anyway, so this will be my first post for 2010, I hope it's going well for everyone so far! Tomorrow I will start back on my week in 6 and hopefully we'll get on a roll.

Merry New Year all !
