I couldn't resist this little cutie.

I found him on facebook and linked him to a few friends and then couldn't help but saving him and sharing with all you gangsters out there.

Happy Friday!!

What might these be?

New creations from upcycled leather and vintage buttons, what could they be when they grow up?



What do you think?

Going to get my sewing on!

Easter holidays are rolling around pretty swiftly and I've decided that i'm going to dust off the old sewing machine and see what I can create! I'm thinking cushion covers mostly with these patterns and possibly a tote back with the bowls club towel.

I'm also secretly working on some new leather creations but they're not finished yet so you'll have to wait and see!

also, how cute is this cushion cover I found op-shopping out in the middle of no where?!

Market time!

I'm well aware of my prolonged hiatus from creating pretty much anything but the truth is, no matter how much I thought I would be ok with uni starting again and work being fairly full on, it just hasn't happened.

Until now!

These last couple of days I have been putting together a suitcase to be part of a market day at my friend Imogens art space that is being held tomorrow. I made a few more pairs of leather cut out earrings and also some new necklaces to be on show. There are only three necklaces so far but they're just prototypes really, just to see what kind of feedback they receive.

Here are a few last minute photos I took on my phone before I packed them up to take out to the shop, please let me know what you think of my button clouds!

{they're all made from recycled leather and vintage buttons}

And if you're keen to stop by and check them out for real, here is the info for tomorrows festivities!

{yes the street is named after me..haha!}

It's dumpling tiiime!

Sake sake sake!
Captain Gyoza!
Two mates and I went to check out Harajuku Gyoza in the Valley a couple of weeks ago.
It was one of the most fun restaurants I've ever been to, EVER!
The dumplings were super delicious, especially the prawn and the duck (let it be known also that I'm not the biggest fan of duck but was talked around to the idea and pleasantly surprised!). The beer was also great even if we did have to wait for them to change the keg over, not to mention the sake.
If you order sake, which you should, be prepared for a crazy song and dance with hand clapping, punch dancing moves and singing before you can have your delicious beverage. It was fantastic and my sake cherry was popped.
Overall a great night but I do warn, it was really busy and we did have to wait about 15 minutes for a place to open up at the bar, late on a thursday night. So if you're heading in on a friday or saturday be prepared because you can't pre book tables.

Popping my sake cherry!

Super cute gyoza face on the beer glasses.

They have a super cute website if you want to check out the menu more at

Movie and TV featured top 10

So this may seem to be getting a little out of hand but this time it's the top 10 choice songs featuring in TV shows or movies.


Closing Time, the opening credits for Ed and a great song on its own.

Respect the Wind from Twister, only the best movie of all time.

perfection, Heath you can sing this to me any day of the week.

Sugarhigh - Coyote Shivers
It's better when Renee Zellweger sings it at the end of the movie but I couldn't find the clip.

Clueless, nothing else needs to be said about this choice.

A Night at the Roxbury - What is love

If you don't know this song and/or movie, you have been living under a rock I promise you.

My Girl, the Temptations but the movie of the same name is just pure nineties awesome-ness.

Walk like a man, from the movie Sleepers.

Teenage Dirtbag, Weezer from the movie Loser

I like it because they reference Iron Maiden.

I'll be there for you - The Rembrandts

This is the Friends theme song, my graduation song from grade 7 and always a favourite.

and there you have it, the end of the challenges...for now.
