my week in 6...{wk 6}

I'll be the first one to admit I have been somewhat slack with my posts recently. I'm trying to reconfigure my blog and make it prettier/ easier to navigate. I'm not very good with the whole computer technology thing so please, if anyone has any tips, pass them on!

Anyway, this week has been pretty busy, Soundwave on the weekend and more paintings being sold means I have to get my butt in gear and get creative! The Winter Olympics have also been taking up my creative time. I love the ice skating and can only wish I would be that graceful on skates!
I'm also trying very hard to get a flickr account going so people can view my art work better..i wouldn't advise holding your breath though because as I said..a wee bit technology illiterate.

so here you go, 6 photos of where my mind is this week.

..made me chuckle.

oh how i wish i had better skills on ice.

cannot wait for this movie!

seriously considering a change in hair colour, thoughts? {hayley williams, paramore}

polaroids are my new favourite.

what happens when unleashed on pipe cleaners in the kids art centre!

a big guess what?!

The lovely Kelly has asked me not to take my paintings down (as is usually the case when your exhibition ends) but that she wants new ones up! So it's back to work/ create and here is a peek at my little poster to get people to come on by.

Let me know what you think!?

map magazine - remember to dream

Ok so maybe not officially since there's no mention of my name but hey, I know that it's my art work on the wall!
Map magazine have done a write up on the super awesome amazing cafe XOXO and guess who's artwork just happened to be on the wall when they came in to photograph?!

Super excited for Kelly and the girls at XOXO too, they do an awesome job as well as a mean coffee!

my week in 6...{wk 5}

This week has been pretty hectic (hence the mid week entry!) so instead of images cos' I havn't really had time to trawl my favourite sites, blogs, books and zines I'm going to give you all a little insight into the 6 best things I have to look forward to this month. It's taken a little while to decide as this Feb is looking fuller and fuller as the days roll by but here goes...

*deep breath*

Soundwave {feb 20th} ..
Cannot wait to see some of my favourite bands, Paramore
and Motion City Soundtrack amongst them!
A housewarming of the flower themed kind ..
One lovely Laura face is warming her new abode this
month with sweet treats and flowers in our hair,
holding my breath for this one!!

Reds vs Waratahs @ Suncorp Stadium ..
A little lame I know but it will be quality hang out
times with the boys, one boy in particular!

Another housewarming of the Sophie kind ..
With old friends, new friends, cupcakes, bubbly and a little
(or a lot) 50's style thrown in!

James Morrison @ QPAC ..
Taking my grandma for some amazing music, maybe a
glass or two of the bubbly stuff and we get to dress up
a little, Brilliant!

New neighbours!
An old friend who I don't see nearly enough is moving in
literally around the corner from me! I just did a drive by
and cannot wait, it's going to be awesome!!

What is with this month and housewarmings?!
so there you have it, the 6 things that i am most looking forward to this february. x
