I know its been a while....................

I know its been a while.................
I have to start by saying that I went and saw Eclipse, the movie, with a very special and close friend of mine the other night and I have fallen in love again, if I have ever really been "in love"!!!!!!!!
"Edward" is gorgeous!!!!!!!!!
I even jokingly said to my friend that I would even go so far as wearing an "Edward" T-shirt. She laughed at me!!!!!!!!!!! Hmmmmm, maybe not!!! But wow he is great.
It makes me feel like I am a young teenage girl all over again:)

I said to Starzia tonight, because I am watching New Moon on video tonight, that I thought he was gorgeous. She has been saying that we need to find a new boyfriend/husband for me and a new daddy for her. I showed her the picture of Edward on the cover of the movie and jokingly kissed it....... and she said "Yuck mommy.......he's not right or cute at all!!!!!!!"
I said its ok if we don't agree on everything!!!!!

As for the business front............I am in the process of establishing my empire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh to be famous and employing others to produce my designs. To see them in shops and having adults and children wearing my clothes. What a dream!!!
I have a huge pile of clothes on the way and I am loving the design process. Who would have thought 10 years ago that I would one day be taken by fashion and Art together!!!!
I am thinking of photo shoots already and have booked a friend for next weekend.
I will give you all a sneak peek before I head off to Melbourne next week!!!! Fingers crossed!!!!

I hope you are all as busy and happy as I am.

I have been thinking lately!!!!

I have been thinking lately........and I think that a few of my favourite things in the world, besides Starzia and everything she does.....are rainbows, especially double ones, Stars (of course!!), fire works, fairy lights, the ocean at any time of the day or year and sunsets/sunrises!!!! Just all breathtaking!!!!! Oh and love....real uncomplicated precious love in all its shapes and sizes. Love of a friend, a colour, a rainbow, being creative, a man, a child, a daughter...............

The wonderful, creative and amazing Jessica Swift is designing my whole business look and image and I am thoroughly blown away by her talent and her work. She is incredible to work with and makes you feel like you are her one and only and special client!!! Amazing!!!!
I am so excited by what she has done so far and can't wait for the rest to unfold!!

Also so much has been happening lately regarding our business.........sewing is happening, painting, combining art and fashion and design and love and and and and is so exciting!!!!!!! I can't wait to take photos, and work out how to shrink them in less than 3 hours so that I can put them up on my blog for you to see and also become excited and captivated!!!!! ( Hence no photo's or images now...sorry!)

I have also been overawed at all the support, help, shoves and encouragement I have received from everyone around me for Starzia's and my new business. It is absolutely humbling and beautiful and amazing all at once. So thank you to you all!!!!!!!
I must say a special thank you to my twin sister who thinks I have 10 hands, 5 heads and 6 bodies in order to do all that she encourages me to do!!!!!! I love her enthusiasm and total support of what I am doing and her complete faith and love in me. She is amazing!!!!

With love as a what you do and do what you love. Love yourself and all the amazing people and things around you. Love each and every day as an opportunity to do all you can, when you can, enjoying every precious moment.

I love you Starzia.

Back in the swing of things

It's been a busy time, a fun time.....and yes, I know, a long time between posts.
So much has been happening and I am so excited!!!! My new logo and business image is well under way and looking amazing!!!!! Jessica Swift is one incredible and talented young lady. I love her style and her designs and everything. She has been absolutely brilliant to work with.
I can't wait to show you all....but all in good time, as they say!!!!
I have also been going fairy crazy!!!!!! No that was not a misprint (fairly!!!) ha ha!
Have a look at these...............

I love her wings!! It is so much fun experimenting and playing with mixed media. I love the happy accidents!!!

I love the colours of this fairy and the buttons!!

The following two fairies are all about texture and spray and colour and fun.

Then a wonderful friend and artist, Donna Heart and I decided to do a collaborative fairy. This is our result. Isn't she gorgeous and she has already sold!!!

I have also recently finished an oyster shell and a bird cage painting....but I will save those for next time.

In the mean time I will carry on cutting and sewing and painting and laughing and having fun being creative. I hope you are doing what you love too....if not its time to start!
