I am part of the Illustrators Australia Wear Art Thou exhibition. Redbubble challenged Illustrator Australia members to create designs specifically for t-shirts and the exhibition will showcase all these designs on t-shirts and other products you can purchase from Red Bubble.

If you are in Melbourne be sure to head to the exhibition at No Vacancy Gallery, QV Building, Melbourne, to see all the designs in person!

Mossman Gorge - Queensland

Mossman Gorge just North West of Cairns was absolutely stunning so I thought I would show you some snaps from our daytrip up there. We had a short stop in Palm Cove first for some beach combing with the kids. This is my goofy self excited to be on a beach in Northern Queensland. It was my first trip north of Brisbane.

Epiphytes on the rainforest trees.

Salties are not the best shoe selection for the rainforest, but at least they are waterproof! Moss and ferns up close.

Cairns Drawings

It's been a long time since I have been here on the blog, but I'm planning to be here a lot more I promise! In the Easter holidays we spent a week in balmy Cairns. I drew some tropical flowers with a black pilot pen and some of the kids $2 markers. There was a really cute green tree ant running around as well. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed drawing them!

Christmas 2012

In previous years - especially since having kids we have found Christmas to be pretty stressy, especially since my husband has had major deadlines at work around the same time. So this last festive season in 2012 consisted of us trying to keep it simple whilst trying to stick with the things we love to do.

We like to get a real tree, shop for the kids gifts together, attend carols for children on Christmas Eve, make a few decorations, bake ginger bread with friends and eat some cherries and other summer fruit (we are in Sydney after all). With kids you tend to do lots of fun things, for example we do Christmas craft at a friends house and playgroup Christmas party complete with farm animals!

It was fun to visit the Christmas windows in the city and visit the Swarovski Crystal tree at the Queen Victoria Building. It is totally magical!

We ended up with 17 people in the house on Christmas night and yep, I was cooking. I tried to keep it simple and prepare ahead of time so I could enjoy the day as well.

Spring in the garden

Lately we have been enjoying some beans from the garden and some fresh salads - we have, rocket, mizuna, mustard and some other salad varieties. A lot of things are getting eaten by the possums, the spinach is especially popular! Just when I think it's almost time for spinach pie it gets whisked away! Never-the-less we do get to eat some things. We also have corn and tomatoes on the way.

Carnations from the kids Grandmother "Marnie" by the cubbyhouse. On our to-do list - oil that cubbyhouse!

Mad Hatter's Tea Party

For my daughters second birthday we had a Mad Hatter's Tea Party. The kid loves hats so it just came to me one day, we had to have a Mad Hatter's Tea Party!

I nade a bunny cake (complete with coconut fur). We borrowed extra kids chairs from our neighbours, so we had lots of mismatched chairs which looked kind of mad. The kids decorated their own party hats with stickers. For food we had fruit, gingerbread hearts, cucumber and egg sandwiches, fairy bread and my husband likes to make rainbow jelly cups.
