We finally had a teeny bit of rain last night- halleluljah! But no where near enough to really help anything- those bushfires are still raging.
I also dug up some truly perfect potatoes today- that straw method really works! Nothing tastes better than freshly harvested home grown organic potatoes.

Here is a tshirt I painted for Thomas who is turning One in January and whose family have a beautiful Queenslander house in Pomona.
It's probably a bit big for him yet- but hey, kids grow!
Thank-you to lovely Simone, Louise and Anna for their very kind compliments...what delightful friends I have.

Here are a few Christmas ornaments I made today for nephews A and F and friends. Kids make Christmas really.
Strange smokey day today with bushfires raging all around Melbourne- you couldn't get further away from the Northern Hemisphere concept of a cold Christmas if you tried. We should be celebrating the Mid-Summer Solstice, but Australians are very reluctant to admit we are part of the Southern Hemisphere.

I want to use this blog as a place to show my work- whatever it may be, and record my creative adventures.
To quote Brenda Ueland: "Why should we use our creative power? Because there is nothing that makes people so generous, joyful, lively, bold and compassionate, so indifferent to fighting and the accumulation of objects and money."
Yep. That about sums it up I'd say.
