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.

New streamlined craft area - symbolic of the new streamlined organised me.

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

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Robyn Lea — Bohemian Living.

Just as I decide to commit to a more minimalist way of living I discover Robyn Lea's gorgeous book Bohemian Living and I just don't stand a chance. The showcasing of 20 artists and their homes —Australian and International — plus their art and there I am, back again, craving colour, clutter and limitless creativity.

Are Ears The New Black?

Hooray! It appears girls with sticky outy ears can now come out of hiding. If the above photos in this months British Vogue are anything to go by the long wait is over. No need to be shy anymore. Such Good News (not personally you understand...I'm just pleased for those poor unfortunate girls who now can take their hats and headbands's nothing to me...).
