flutes and full moon

Our band, Floot Moot, played at the Willunga Waldorf School Autumn Fair on Saturday, and in the rain at the Stirling Market on Sunday. We have began our journey and I couldn't be happier. If you facebook, you can follow us here. And if you don't then here would be a better idea.

Enjoy the full moon tonight...

tribal firbes... this friday!

Only a few days to go now! Please forgive me if I don't post this week as I will be frantic making jewellery. But I will try to get a few photo's up of my latest work, just to give you a taste of what's in store.
So come join us for our opening on Friday from 7pm and for our big performance on Sunday at 7:30pm. Tickets are selling fast! Oh, and don't forget we will be running workshops all weekend :)

creativity blooms

I have been doing a bit of a clean out and have discovered some things long forgotten. Its always interesting to get a bit of a look at who you used to be, like meeting an old friend and realising how differently you both remember events of your shared past.

One of them was list of goals I wrote at about 20. It had aims for the next year, for when I am 30 and for later on.

I'm happy to say that I have actually met a lot of those goals. I there are just a few left and only one of them is something I still wish to achieve in the same timeline I set myself. There are also more than a few I am happy to let slide, as I have changed so much and they are no longer things things I want or need. It feels good.

I also found a few drawings from that time that I wanted to share with you and a few new ones that I have been working on as backgrounds for photo's of my jewellery.

Enjoy :)

wishful warmth

I'm thinking about the cold, now that it's Autumn. Not that it feels anything near chilly yet, but here it is, my sock dreams, mood beads, wooly Wednesday wish list.

I've been featured!

I just found out I have been featured on the blog of Calico & Co. today. Please head over and check out the Jungle themed finds if you get a chance, they are very lovely!

fringe-ing :)

Well, Adelaide has gone just a little mad.

I love this time of year, the festival season, but I have had very little time for anything else.

But we have made it to the opening parade, the Emma Hack exhibition opening (go check out her work while its at the Festival Centre, just stunning!), a Chocolate Party, Astrid Elika's CD launch, the Fringe Artist's Bar, and a few others that I can't think of right now.

Oh, and my little Brother's 21st. And that's just the first 2 weeks!
My partner has also been performing all this time with 3 men 6 arms, Saffron Tribal Belly Dance and with  the Gurdy Girl. And we still have 3 gigs to go...

I have a long list of Fringe events I want to go see, and an even longer list of one's I just can't get to. Maybe next year.
As it is every last moment I have spare is spent making new creations for our Tribal Fibres - Connecting Threads exhibition and event on the 12th - 14th of March. And I feel like I have never been more creative. I'm really looking forward to this event, with the art work and the workshops and the big performance on the Sunday night it will really be something quite different. I can't wait!!!
