O.K. what do you do when you've just spent a gazillion dollars on renewing your passport in the vague hope of actually using it one day, and have just had truly hideous and quite frankly- scary photographs taken of yourself to flash at future unsuspecting customs officers?
Well you go out and buy a heap of pretty papers you can't afford (and technically don't need) to make yourself feel better of course! Guess what? It works!!!

I was quite sad to read that one of my favourite art blogs Dear Ada may be ending- at least for a while, but I was very happy to read the reason for it too- good luck Birdie and thank-you for all the wonderful art you have shared.
Happily I have also just discovered another wonderful blog Geninne's Art blog and here are some delightful hand carved stamps made by Gennine. She also takes some truly beautiful photographs of her art,home and collections of things that inspire her.

Here's my next sending to Kerry-Ann in our Mail Art project.We've often discussed our favourite seasons and so I decided to put that into this piece- especially as I am avidly watching for Spring blossom and leaf buds at the moment. (If you can't quite read the letters it says "I know you love Autumn the best but my favourite Season is Spring) We are certainly having a grey and wet Winter this year, but Spring is around the corner...hurrah!

Here are two beautiful little Mixtape zines made by my multi-talented friend Shelley. They are beautifully drawn and tell really enchanting little stories- I found myself sighing a little at the end...in a good way.
They have been sold at Polyester in Melbourne (even though Shelley is originally from Vancouver and now living here)and I can't wait to see what she produces next!
Here is my friend Kerry-Ann's first contribution to the mail art exchange she and I have set up. I think there's a great cubist feeling to this- and you can just make out the bag designs that it's woven out of. Such a delight to receive in the mail! Thank-you Ms Kerry-Ann!
(I forgot to photograph the first one I sent her- but will definitely pop up a piccie of the next one I do- this is fun!)
