Celebrating my new iPhone!

I'm posting this for no other reason than to see if I can!

I recently stepped in to the 21st century and got a proper smartphone... The fact it carries my music and audio books too is just a bonus. I loved my blackberry, and would defend it to the ends if the earth, but since having this phone I'm realising how limiting it really was.

I can catch up on reading everyone's blogs now without squinting and waiting 3 hours for paged to load :p

Doesn't seem to be a way to upload pics... Please tell me if you know a way!

My Ooberla Monster arrived!

I ordered an Ooberla! Monster from... Ooberla!

She arrived in her lovely little box, inside a bigger box, with the most adorable business cards EVER! (I was going to take a picture of those too, but I've put them somewhere safe... erm... if anyone sees them, please let me know!)

There are a lot more monsters in need of homes, like Isobel and Hector!

I know it's only October...

I'm already looking forward to the festive season!

Cold nights, so you can wrap up with blankets and hot water bottles, and sit by the fire if you're lucky enough to have a fireplace.

Twinkly lights, everywhere!

And the starbucks festive menu ^_^

Now if only they would harness the power of non-dairy whipped cream, and caramel sauce.

The only thing I'm not looking forward to, is people who moan about it being the festive season.

"It starts earlier every year!" - Um, no it doesn't... if it did, by now we would be buying tree ornaments in May, and we're not.

"Oh it's so stressful, I want it to be over!" It's not stressful (so stop saying it is!) If you find this time of year stressful, you probably find most things stressful :P

Embrace it, enjoy it, and go just go with it!

Did you see the new onesies?

These are the new onesies, and they are available from the Etsy Shop, HERE , And also from the Artfire Shop, HERE

If you can't see them, don't worry! They've probably sold out, but I am always re-stocking, so you won't have to wait long to see them again :)

Some of my favourite paintings.

I haven't painted in a long time, and have 3 half finished canvases around this room at the moment. I really must get back on it!

All paintings are usually listed in the Artfire shop, although there is only one currently in stock, more will be added over the next few weeks.

This one is the butterfly faerie, I'd love for her to become a screenprint one day... but I still have a way to go on perfecting my two colour printing.

The butterfly faerie was painted in Acrylics, on a wooden frame stretched canvas.


These three were a set for Brooke of Brooke Van Gory, for Gory's bedroom. He also has a matching lamp shade which I collaborated on with Kylie of Fabulously Fierce.

Each one is 8x8 inches, painted in acrylics on wooden frame stretched canvases.

The Zombie fish. This is one of my favourites to date. I have painted some more canvases with similar background colour washes, and will be working on those very soon.


These three are larger than usual, 16x16 inches on 2 inch thick wooden frame canvases. These were a commissioned order for a customers bathroom.

I'll definitely be doing some more of these, they were a lot of fun to create.
