Wedding Invites!!!

Finally! I have started, and finished, my best friend Estelles' wedding invite theme. We decided today on a Ivory, the palest of pinks, and a lovely natural brown. The motif I designed is of a birdcage which will be printed at the top of the invite, and the little vine motif inside it will be used for the table placement cards. I’m so proud of myself; I think it is such a sweet design!

I began by creating a preliminary computer image on Microsoft word. After printing, i simply copied directly over the design in pencil, and added the little fleur de lis and vine design, plus fixed up a few of the curved lines to give it some charm!!
They entire design was created by copying some wirework cages my friend will use as a centrepiece for the tables, threaded with dodda vine and hung with some delightful tin birdies. I can't wait to see the whole theme come together!

Older and Wiser?

I recently celebrated my 19th birthday... And already i feel old.
No more dipping chips in my ice-cream, swinging in the kiddie seat of the local swingset, secretly enjoying playing dress-ups with my little cousins. Now I am expected to be a wise, mature young adult in this world... Ha! Yeah right! I will continue to delight in strange culinary experiences, utilise the odd position of sitting on the back of the swing-seat, and letting my face be dabbed with lipstick and shocking pink blush, topped with ridiculous fairy hats and ponytails. I'm going to enjoy my life, even if it sometimes ends in being ridiculed and laughed at... because at the end of it all, when i'm old and grey, i will smile to myself and remember all the stupid things i ever did. and love it!

Last year, i was lucky enough to venture into a little 'phoenix' aeroplane, and take a journey out over Bramble Bay and the Redcliffe area. Doesn't everything always look so much prettier from the air?

I will give you one warning though...

When the instructor tells you "Did you get all that?", and you nod "Yes", because you're to busy looking at the scenery...

...Bad things will happen!!!...

Believe me, i know!

My mission!

Ha ha! So why did i create a blog site?
Well, i notice that a lot of people like to upload their art and craft, thoughts and memories, anything that strikes their fancy.
Well, i want to do the same, but i want an atmosphere of fun and interest..
I want it to be visually appealing...
I want to save the world one smile at a time. So to all those who read this, expend a little energy, and give a smile to someone in need, or better yet, to yourself!

My first ever blog!
I'm just sort of experimenting, because I'm not a very 'computer technical' sort of person, but I love the idea, so here I am!!
Hello to all my good friends, don't worry, I'm going to enthusiastically e-mail all of you so you visit my site... Wait.. more to follow!
