7 things . sneak peak

i've been working on this new one on and off for quite a few months ~ it's a pencil drawing that i've digitally coloured. there are a few versions of it and lots of other drawings i'd like to colour ~ i think this one is my favourite so far. i'd love to know what you think!

also, the lovely ann, and kristina have passed on the kreative blog award to me {thanku both!} which entails listing 7 things about myself and passing it on to 7 others :) here goes:

* i love mangoes + mango gelati {with chocolate gelati}
* i'll never ever get in another cable car or on another ferris wheel ever. very scared!
* although i like the idea of laptops, i actually can't stand using them
* i want to live near the beach one day, and travel to canada and america, and around many countries in europe!!
* i had a motorbike when i was a kid
* onions give me headaches
* i wish that quarkxpress was part of adobe's creative suite~ i really miss it!!

i'm passing this on to annamaria, evie, elk, leah, cathy, caroline, and mady.

my creative space . the big open road!

i'm very excited to say that the big wide world {the road} has been my space today!
i passed my driving test yesterday ~ which is such a relief! my first 'solo' drive {my 2 year old fell asleep in the back after 3 minutes} was to the art shop for these wood panels.
today i got across town for a meeting, then to north melbourne to have a look at a shop . . . then safely home {only one man swore at me} . . . i was surprised to find that driving alone can be a nice quiet space :)
p.s. kylie, it's not just the mirrors that need a clean!

happy space day! to see more spaces, visit kirsty.

7 tents . new painting

i've had some fun painting tents lately ~ it's been years since i've camped and i'm not sure how i'd go roughing it ~ but the idea is very exciting! reminds me of being a kid :)

the print is available here.

my creative space

i've been meaning to make these 'wall hangings' out of the old pallets for ages and finally got around to it. i got up on the ladder and re-arranged the boards + managed to keep my wits about me ~ i didn't fall off! and yup {beth!} another tidy up :)
sorry about the dodgy photos ~ it's that same old issue!

happy creative space day to you ~ pop into kirsty's to see more spaces.

my creative space . a short walk

i felt a little naughty sneaking out to take photos in the rain, wishing i was at my desk in my usual creative space today instead of spending most of the hours working on a business plan {part of the Bakery half dozen course}. but . . . i needed a break, this kind of work is useful and very heady!!

happy creative space day ~ pop into kirsty's to see some actual creative spaces!

a little painting progress

i squeezed in some painting time on sunday.
things feel super squeezed this week, and i expect this month. . . school has officially started for our 5 year old and for me! i'm doing the bakery half-dozen 6 wk business course, and boy do i have some work to do! just as i was thinking, it won't be too hard to find the time now that i only have our 2 yr old at home, he has decided that a day sleep isn't really necessary! he's out of the cot/into {sometimes} a bed and toilet training this week! busy, busy. . .

so if i owe you a blog comment/visit or two, these will be the reason! hope to get there soon!

. . .i'm also planning on trashing the j-s kit comment system when i get some time as the sign in thing doesn't work {there are no links for a lot of comments, which means there is no way of visiting back} and also i've noticed a few comments here and there have disappeared {admin at js-kit only help with this kind of thing if you buy a 'premium' account :( }

happy mid school week to you!
