ultimate party

so my "big" birthday is coming up in a month and a half or something crazy like that!
my dream is to have a great bash.
but between job finding and little projects and adjusting to my new life again and limited funds, i'm not sure i can make it happen.
but here is my dream party ideas anyway // hay bale seats // delicious food // a thousand pink balloons // lots of dancing // cheese cake // party lighting.

are you sunburnt?

happy belated australia day.
i had a wonderful day with bbq breakfast at the beach, lots of swimming, and to top the night off, sitting on the roof watching the fireworks and a lightning storm.

with this amazingly hot (40°C+) weather we have been having in perth, some of us (not me thankfully) have been getting a little too much sun.
how cute and informative is this sweet illustration.
so here's a little help my sunburnt friends.

i'll never not have a thing for teapots

so i already have enough for a mad hatters' tea party, but my love of them will never die.

(i spotted the gorgeous pink and red one in a shop window in zwolle, holland last year and have FINALLY found it online – one day it shall be mine...)

30 before 30 update

6. host a FABULOUS dinner party [done]
must do anther one (hint hint emma b).

9. bake a cake [done]
well technically not correct.
i made a cake.
totally counts in my book, since i've never baked a cake before.

24. update my design portfolio [done]
what a loooooooong process.
even to the point of a beautifully printed little book now.
job hunt, job hunt, job hunt.

27. detox [done]
i count my detox as an 9 day long natural foods only thing.
no alcohol, no sugar, no preservatives, no processed food, heaps of water etc.
did make me feel a whole lot healthier.
got to try it again.
or just consistently eat really well.

a field of black turns into a wall of color

blackfield by artist zadok ben david.
an installation using 12,000 cut steel botanical specimens modeled on old textbook illustrations.
at first the plants appear completely black, but when viewed from the opposite side, a field of black turns into a wall of colour.

aimee claire brand

the logo i recently created for the very talented aimee claire.
i am in love with the mood she captures in her photographs.
a little bonus too, that her sister is married to my brother, so always extra cute photos of my nephew around.
below are a few of my favourite photos.
