Hello hello! Isn’t this year just whizzzzzing by? It dawned on me the other day that we are almost half way through 2014 – say whaaaat?
For me it’s time to refocus on this years goals and anything I’d like to work on to achieve them before the year is over. One of my main goals being to create a calendar for 2015 full of watercolour drawings!
On Wednesday night we went to Rhys Darby… He is doing a comedy tour called Mr Adventure – pretty sure I got a 6 pack from laughing so hard. Anyway if you’re not sure who Rhys is there is a video link below – you may recognise him from Flight of the Concords as Murray!
Article: A series of images of the traditional life in the Siberian Arctic. I love this insight and the emotion portrayed in the beautiful pictures. It’s so far from my life here. Truly stunning.
Video: The best of Murray Hewitt from Flight of the Concords
Quote: ‘A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions’. – Ahhhh yes. This is perfect.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned. A few home DIYs and some thrifting is in order for me. Plus a trip to the market for fresh flowers & coffee dates :)
I hope you’re all happy & well. Winter has defo started to arrive in Nelson. Fareeeeezing nights & beautiful sunny days.
This week I worked on a cute wee range of gift tags, available in a pack of 8 on the Clouds of Colour Shop.
Work has been sooo exciting this week as the container of American Vintage arrived into the store – you can read here and here for my adventure to LA where my boss & I raced around collecting beautiful furniture for the store here in Nelson.
Article: This series of absolutely incredible images blew my creative mind. THE COLOURS!! Make sure you read what each image is – so fascinating.
Video: ‘A wide-angle view of fragile earth’ – again more beautiful pics plus a great talk from Yann Arthus-Bertrand on humanity and our habitat.
Quote: ‘Life is too short & unpredictable not to live it exactly as you please.’
I have also been working on 2 large A3 pieces for my next exhibition – a couple of snippets are above.
Have a perfect weekend, friends!
I have really been enjoying the autumn colours, flavours, flowers and fashion this week. I finally got my dream ghost chair for my studio desk, repainted a set of drawers for our bedroom and found a flower market! So our house is full of beautiful vases and the sweet perfume of flowers. This week I feel extremely thankful for every little bit of my life.
Thank you for being such wonderful readers and inspiring me to live this sort of life!
Another bright and colourful week for me! Sunsets, green tea, feijoas, autumn leaves, painting fruit and vegetables and starting a pretty cool project which I will be sharing this Saturday! A sneak peek is above.
How has your week been? I hope you have the best weekend everrr!
