Craft has exploded all over my desk! Getting all excited about running some kids parties in the near future, which has always been something I’ve wanted to do. I guess working at a craft store does that to you. This is a project I though about after seeing some cute tea light holders, and is also inspired by that mt masking tape that looks like paper confetti. I located some confetti, whipped out a small balloon and stuck it all together with trusty PVA. When it (eventually) dries, I am hoping it will be a translucent little lantern! I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Man I love crafty Sundays, even if to everyone else today is Thursday. The curse of working weekends. I’ll update when it dries, Amelia :)

I WILL post more often. I WILL post more often. I WILL post more often.
This is the new mantra.
Just got back from sailing the seas and trying to gain some perspective on my little life.

I’ve started posting a bit more on my other blog ‘The Opportunity Blog’, where I eventually aim to create an inventory of all the things I acquire from Op Shops. Ultimately, this is fuelling a nasty habit of mine - hoarding. Who doesn’t need vintage souvenir place mats from New Zealand for $2?

A whole lot of colour is coming this year.

When inspiration strikes in the dark of the night, this is where I’ll be.

I sometimes like to make cards for people. I have not posted for a very long time, and I thought I’d use this little cross-stitched card I made for my friend Jess’ 21st to once again say hello. My university days are well and truly over, and I’ve come to that realisation that countless others must also face at this time in their lives. What the hell do we do now? After much deliberation I have decided to spend my time doing things like organise my mountains of craft supplies, and learn how to do this new thing I discovered called ‘jogging’.  I don’t do it very well, but I’m trying. I’ve started cooking with Mum a lot more. I’ve also been lucky enough to follow around a select few people I admire most, and try to figure out where they went right. So I’ll keep doing that until I find where I need to be. And then work on where I want to go from there.

A proposed cover design and type-setting solution for the RMIT Creative Writing Anthology, 2011, entitled ‘Undertow’. My concept for the cover imagery explored the mythological idea of a celestial ocean; the amalgamation of sea and stars. 

This is a publication I created entitled ‘Life In Disposable’, documenting the lives of 16 friends by asking them to carry disposable cameras around with them. I wanted to visually explore the reason why we have certain people in our lives. It’s a tad sentimental, and lame, but so am I. 

Well my final year of Communication Design has come to an end, and here are some of the projects I just included in my final folio. I will hopefully have a portfolio web site coming out soon, and then this blog can go back to showcasing my felt escapades. 

This is the cover and editorial design for an issue of Dot/Dot/Dot Magazine, A5 in size with a zine feel.
