DIY: Xmas Wreath

I'm signing off with a very easy DIY that I quickly did yesterday.  It got me all feeling festive inside and looking forward to the holiday.

Step1.  Pimp a boring old wreath with toadstool battery operated lights
Step2.  Gather ornaments with a like minded theme
Step3.  Attach ornaments with florist wire
Step4.  Hang and skite

It's been a very crazy year.  A move to a new town, a 3 month trip through Europe, many highs and lows, a new puppy and a hysterectomy.  No wonder it's been nuts.

So onwards and upwards for 2013.  Canne wait.

Merry Christmas to you all and see you in 2013.

Blog Shop: Sydney

Well would you look at me!  I promised you a GIF and prey-tell I delivered!

I must confess that I was very worried about being a bit far out of my league with the whole photoshop thing, but after two intense days of learning I now now have the skills people.

Just need to find the time to do it all.  Isn't that that million dollar question.

Infact a millon questions are running though my mind at the moment, mostly about the direction that I'm-a-heading.  I want it to all mean something, and be meaningful.  I want to deliver the best me without compromise.  And lastly I want to be happy.

Happiness is colour, and colour is what I am.

Excuse-moi for getting deep but sometimes I just want to know that what I'm doing is right.  It's a lonely world at times - this blogging lark.  It was such a treat to be surrounded my 20 odd other creatives at the Blogshop and it would have been nice to have more time to dicuss the in's and out's of what we all do.   Can't complain really - it was such a fun, empowering and PS-laden weekend and I loved every minute of it!

Loved meeting them all.

Love that you read me.

Going to: Blog Shop - Sydney

Twas the night before traveling...

I've just felt like I've only just touched down, my feet hardly touching the ground, and off I go again!  Fun though and very exciting.

I'm off to BLOGSHOP.  Yes - THE BLOGSHOP with blogger and photographer extraordinaires - Bri Emery and Angela Kohler respectively.

Far from actually believing that I will be living and breathing bloggy-stuff for all of the whole weekend, all in lovely Syders.  Not that I will get to see much of her.

Fresh batch of bis cards - check
Photoshop downloaded - check
Bright clothes - check (always)
Sparkly demeanor - check
Nerd/Hipster hat - check
Butterflies - triple check

I will know not a soul and most probably be the only kiwi in amongst a room full of Aussies...but I will do you proud my friends, and will proudly pronounce my 6's and take pride in projecting my 'Fish and Chips'.  

See you on the other side!
(Flashing my GIFs and WACOM's at cha!)

Love this vid too - featuring the girls from from the last post!

Bright Sparks:

The bright and sparky of interiors often get spoke about here at AFDHQ but it's not oft that I talk accessories of the hair/body/feet kind.  

I'm about too. caught my eye in a magpie way.  It's bits are shiny, bright and lovely and in their words say "Hey, you there, check me out, I'm cool".  They will be my words too when my clip-on shoe red hearts arrive on my door step!

.and yes they deliver world-wide.
