A New Year And Out With The Old...

Like so many others I often see the new year as an opportunity to overhaul my life a bit. This usually begins by a huge house clean done, sporadically over a few days, which leaves me feeling spiritually lighter.......ok, not really, but at least rid of the house dust thats been collecting since October when I generally lose the plot and surrender any vague illusion that I am in control of my life. And at least now I'm able to open my craft supplies cupboard without receiving a concussion from a large box of beads, various salvaged rusty items and a small glue gun. The craft supplies cupboard was long overdue. It had got to the point where I was just avoiding it and the reproach it represented of so many unfinished projects. I made tough decisions about what was never going to get done, what was never going to get used and out it went. Below is a photo of the amazing NEW craft cupboard and it's new streamlined order. Okay, now I'm just showing off.

Love the new streamlined cupboard. You are a woman after my own heart. And I can identify with the open cupboard at risk of concussion syndrome. I also agree with you on blogging more, enjoying the connections it makes. I hope to be able to do that more this year. I always enjoy reading your posts and seeing your artworks. x

GUCCI in Auckland.

Walking up the main street of Auckland this summer I was not expecting to see each side of the road wall to wall with international luxury fashion brands. It's not that Auckland isn't fashionable — to the contrary the country is full of it's own authentic, edgy fashion and creativity (a friend puts this down to the cool temperatures and the crappy television) — it's just that this kind of distinctly European traditional luxury seemed a strange fit. Then a local explained that when the cruise liners dock in the harbour the first thing the tourists see coming off the ship are the bright glossy brands beckoning. Maybe some can afford the $3000 price tags for these dresses? Regardless I love Michel Alessandro and there was no keeping me out of GUCCI, getting to see his work live and in captivity. Clearly I was not their most hoped for customer but the Gucci staff were laid back and fun and allowed me to take these photos as well as giving me a catalogue — sealed in envelo…

Zombies Hate Stuff.

Day nine since the first Intragram infusion and still feeling like I've done ten rounds in the ring. Today got sick of all the net surfing from bed and persuaded C to take me out to The National Portrait Gallery even though he had taken the day off to organise various household things that needed organising. I was too unwell to actually roam the exhibitions but we had a coffee in the cafe and then took on the book shop which has to be the best arts book shop I've encountered. Heaps of brilliant books were added to my wish list but it's this novelty one that really lit my day up - Zombies Hate Stuff. Who knew? According to the author Greg Stones zombies hate all kinds of things. They're pretty disgruntled types but what they particularly hate is kittens, clowns, weddings, sharing, re-gifting and war re-enacters. They also hate...
Disrespect.
Hippies and...

Mannequins (and regifting).

Work Space in Fifties Palette.

Feeling so smug about putting up my box shelf and finally making my work space workable that I'm putting up the evidence. Wish I had taken before photos. The last photo is how the rest of the room still looks.
