Manic Inspiration Overload!

Here's the thing, I am going through a manic or is that maniac stage at the moment. I think it may have something to do with me starting my own blog after reading Tara Frey's Blogging for Bliss book. Everywhere I look I'm thinking "I'll take a photo of that for the blog" or "I'll write about that on the blog" is this normal?? Anyway dear friends you're safe. I am getting my thoughts sorted and giving them a good talking to. So I thought I would at least share some of my art work with you so you can see that I actually do create, abet a little slower than I used to be but I can do it when there is a purpose to the end. Above is a photo of a mixed media piece I conjured up for my gal pal Julie. I was pleased with it as I used a few techniques that I hadn't used before and although it was a little trial and error it turned out a good exercise of learning. I don't know if I have mentioned yet (no of course I haven't) but I am completely happy to answer any questions about how to do the above mentioned piece.

A great night

A great night was had by all. The company was good and as you can see by the pictures Trin's shop is a great source of inspiration. The food stacked up really well with a few people taking home some care packages to eat for later.

Trin's Soiree

What a busy day. Tonight is my friends Trin's Soiree. She owns a divine shop called Drift which a mmmm what would you call it? a home and lifestyle shop. I like to say it's Beach Chic. Anyhoo tonight is the three month anniversary of her opening and she has just become custodian to a whole lot of new stock. I alway put my hand up to do the catering, which isn't really a chore as I love cooking. These photos are the dessert for the night and although food stylist I'm not, I don't think they look too bad. The strawberries have hit the shops with a venegence and at 99 cent a punnet you can afford to be generous. Stay tuned for more photos of the night at a later post.
