Merry Christmas

In the spirit of Christmas and seeing as it is Audrey's first, I felt i had to make her a Christmas Stocking. The photo's aren't too crash hot but you get the idea. All made from found objects and recycled fabrics which I was happy about!
Hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas.

Waiting at the Alter

Well the Groom is ready and waiting for his big day. The bride should be along shortly, she just needs some legs to walk up the aisle. Playing around with a couple of shots here for potential invitation images. Plenty to do and running out of time!

Inspiration - Maurice Denis

The Muses (Les muses) 1893
When we were in Canberra recently we went to the Masterpieces from paris exhibition which was awesome. I have finally seen some of Van Gogh's paintings in real life and they are amazing - the texture and intensity of colours was fantastic. However the highlight for me was discovering Maurice Denis who's paintings feature in this blog. I just loved his work, beautiful colour pallete and art noveau lines. Have to find out more on him!

Season's Greetings

Well I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus due to being away for a couple of weeks and crazy christmas time. We attempted the huge drive from Melbourne to Sydney over 2 days with a young baby who was not impressed. She hates going in the car seat now even for a short time!

I didn't realise if you miss your daily blog reading for a week (and you start to follow a million blogs) then you end up spending hours trying to catch up - not wanting to do a bulk delete incase you miss out on that special post with some great inspiration or info. What I do realise now is that I am addicted!

Plenty of making, ideas and inspiration going on here which I will post soon. The above image is of a snowman decoration I bought Audrey as her first cool X-mas decoration to collect. It reminds me a little of Tim Burton.
