MaricorMaricar, MIAF and Moving Blogs

MM&M! Lots of m's in that heading.

After trying to work out how to transition to a new blog i am finally moving over to my new blog which is here ( I didn't really work out anything just stuck a picture on my sidebar saying i was moving!).

I have also been busy over at The Creative Haven (my other blog)  which focuses on stop motion animation in Australia. We had an awesome interview with the amazing MaricorMaricar about their processes and inspirations and coming up we have a few interviews with some of the stop motion entrants in the Melbourne International Animation Festival which starts on 19th June.

Jumper Makeover

I truly have also been making things and not just playing with my old toys! I found this beautiful knitted jumper at an op-shop for Audrey but the neck was way too small so decided to make a cardigan out of it for her for winter.  Below are some process shots.

and the final results:

80's Flash Back - Final Installment

The final installment to my 80's flashback posts - Gem Dolls and Cabbage Patch Dolls.  I of course had the Misfits (badies) cause they were way cooler than Gem. I can't remember the name of my cabbage patch doll it was something like Freda Marie but I might be confusing that with my sisters one!
