Mixed media

Sometimes you get a do over……

Hello and welcome to my newly refurbished blog! Recently I went to a conference that was all about blogging  and came home inspired to restart my little place on the web. So it was time for a do over. You can look forward to a variety of posts, from my latest craft projects to bits about where I live and the adventures I have as I pursue creativity. I have a huge adventure, one of those once in a lifetime bucket list things coming up in October so stay tuned.

I’d like to share a few pics of my beautiful city – Brisbane, Australia. Brisbane is a river city and we are lucky to live quite close to the CBD so I can easily zip in for some shopping or just to take time to sit by the river.

Southbank could be considered the heart of our city, it was originally home to World Expo 88 but has morphed into a gathering place for residents and visitors and is often the hub of festivals and events. It is now home to a good variety of restaurants, a cinema, an entertainment and cultural precinct as well as beautiful parks and walkways plus an inner city beach & swimming lagoon. It is usually full of families on weekends and during school holidays and is a must do destination for visitors.

Isn’t he beautiful?

We share our home with two fur babies who are a huge part of our lives. This is my boy Zed, a 3 1/2 year old whippet who is as crazy as they come but we love him dearly. You will surely see my girl Xena, an English Toy Terrier in later posts.

Zed is a sighthound and loves to run so we spend lots of time together in local parks

You will see from the pages below that I love to be creative in a variety of ways. Rubber stamping and cardmaking is my first love but that has been almost overtaken by a complete addiction to mixed media and art journaling. Over the years, I have taken and continue to take online classes to enable me to master better skills and I hope to share more of what I have learnt with you.

With a plunge into the world of self hosted blogs and the inspiration I gained at the ProBlogger conference, I have also decided to pursue opportunities to make a little money from my blog. I’ll be sure to make such arrangements obvious when posting.
