Art news, events and rambings

Winter is Coming..

Market season has come to an end.. for me anyway. For now.   I had three market stalls, not many but it was a nice introduction without being too overwhelmed. The Mythical Markets were crazy insane and I think I accidentally tossed myself well…

Well, well, well..

Well! If you’ve been following me on Facebook you may have read the wonderful news that our water well in rural Cambodia IS COMPLETE! The well was built for a community in the Kilotacheom Village, Chikreng District of Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. Thank you…

Dead Faeries at the Hills Art Market

The Hills Art Market Memorial Ave. Emerald Vic Saturday March 10th 9am – 3pm   I’m at it again, market number 2 is less than a week away and this time I feel a little more confident, and a little less organised. So I…

Etsy Shop Makeover

I’m very excited to have finally updated my Etsy shop with a heap of new treasures! My style has changed over the years and isn’t quite as bright and bubbly as it once was, but now a little darker and weirder.. like my soul….

Mythical Market Madness

‘You’re entirely bonkers! But I’ll tell you a secret, the best people are’ – Alice in Wonderland Ah the Mythical Markets. It came, it went, it threw faery dust in my face. It was a whirlwind of curious characters, magical mayhem, and in its entirety…

2017 The year that was

Another year has flown by and is coming to a close, so it’s time to reflect back and see where I’ve come from, what I have achieved, and where I’m headed. 2017 started off slowly on the creative side of things, I have spent…

Miniature Wizard’s Cupboard

I’ve been working merrily away on a miniature Wizard’s cupboard and it’s finally complete! I say finally.. when in fact it only took me a couple of weeks (only working on it for a little bit each day) and it came together quite quickly…

Karma Stars and building wells in Cambodia

I have an amazing friend who has been raising money to build wells in rural Cambodia, enabling the people in remote villages access to clean water. So far she has funded 13 wells and counting.. I’m so proud to know such wonderful people! Of…

Blast from the past! Looking back at my early artworks

The other night I was looking through my old sketch books and it was crazy to see how far I’ve come with my art. Especially when I could remember doing the old work and how I felt about it at the time or what…

2016 Mad Tea Party!

Welcome! This is my very first online Mad Tea Party Blog Hop, hosted by the ever so delightful Vanessa at ‘A Fancilful Twist’. I’m not entirely sure what to expect, and I believe I’m half a day in front of everyone else, but here…

Mad Tea Party Event – A Fanciful Twist

You’re invited.. Just now, I stumbled upon this Mad Tea Party event happening tomorrow! TOMORROW! (July 23rd 2016 – and possibly for a few days over) It’s an annual ‘Blog Hop’ with the delightful Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist. I admit I have never…

Craparoons – Macaroon Fail

I vaguely mentioned this topic in the past, about my macaroon fail, but thought it was too good a story not to share here in full. It still makes me cry with laughter, so I hope you get a good belly laugh from this too! My…

My Big Phat DIY Viking (inspired) Wedding

I got married! Yay! So you may or may not have noticed that there was a lack of crafty goodness being shared on my behalf, and that’s because I spent most of last year DIY-ing the crap out of our wedding. I know I know…..

The Rainbow Farting Unicorn

Late last year, the design job of a lifetime appeared in my inbox. It was an opportunity to work with a fabulous little team known as ‘Who gives a crap?’. It’s a small business that manufactures earth friendly toilet paper and 50% of their…

Give Away!! (Ended)

You may have read previous posts about my ‘craft fail’ incident, involving my over enthusiastic confidence to cook like a MasterChef and a recipe for macaroons. Long story short I created ‘craparoons’ which were a complete disaster. Or so I thought. I knew of a hilarious…

Burger Off – A community united against McDonalds

This is a non art-related subject, but something I feel very passionate about. Today is the day McDonalds opens it’s doors in Tecoma, a small and quiet little town at the base of the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, Australia. Despite the community AND local…

This competition has now ended, congratulations to the three winners: Hayley Warren, Kaela Joy and Cha Cha Rae! For more giveaways and special things keep an eye out on my facebook page here.   Hello! I’m having a competition on my facebook page B.Inspired which…

I’m so crafty, I make people!

That’s right, I make people.. well, person. In the last post I was overdue to have a little baby, 10 days later he was finally born! It’s been a month all ready so I thought I’d update my blog and post a few (creative)…

Faery Photos @ The Pixie Collective!

As a follow up to my ‘exciting news’ I am happy to say the exhibition will not be going ahead.. (Then why would I be happy you ask?) Well!! The wonderful little pixies at The Pixie Collective have let me put my work up…

Exciting News..

..well lets just hope it all goes to plan! So, I finally found a gallery to exhibit my faery photos in!! It’s small, but a perfect location as it’s connected to a faery shop! I still have to fill out the forms, have everything approved.. I probably…
