Christmas-y lights! Fun!

Suprisingly beautiful images of the two most impressive bruises in my ever expanding collection.

My donuts! In the paper! In Melbourne!

Craft Hatch, as expected, was a really good day yesterday, also highly lucrative which is always good when you're completely broke from continuously buying books and op shop dresses that you accidentally hem to within a centimetre from your bum. But I digress. Basically, Craft Hatch is awesome!

I wish I could claim this amazing piece as my own, well, I could, but it wouldn't be fair to my buddy Clara, the amazingly talented lady who created it.. Wow.

Getting there.. I am currently working on some fruit, vegetables and cakes that will be put on display/for sale at the cafe I work at - Big Harvest. Now all I need to knit is some bananas and the fruit part is done..

I'm beginning to think that you really can make anything out of cardboard that you put your mind to. My latest accomplishment - a dress. I felt very Project Runway as I decided to take my inspiration from my favourite flowers - Birds of Paradise - and then came up with the sketch of what I wanted.

After taking some cardboard boxes home from work (oh so convenient!) I got to work..

And here I am, out, wearing a cardboard box dress! Success! It was surprisingly comfortable, although going to the toilet and having to sit down in the taxi home proved quite dramatic, nothing a bit of masking tape in the handbag couldn't fix.

Fun Times at Chelsea Beach!
