seed pods and things...

I have just started the Art and business of surface pattern design course... and I am so bloody excited.  Doing this stuff for the rest of my life would be like heaven for me.  I am totally blissed out!!!

The top pics are some of my drawings from collections of stones and seed pods below {I couldn't help but draw a few little pod people}. 

Yesterday was ANZAC day so we had the day off.  I decided it was going to be a photo taking/drawing day... I had so much fun finding all sorts of interesting things... which meant the house ended up in a huge mess!!!  I was a girl possessed.  Then I thought it might be fun to go to the beach in the evening, so we strolled along collecting treasures and I quietly thought about those ANZAC men.

in the middle of a storm...

{sometimes there was a storm in her brain}

I have signed up to a four online classes and had bookmarked this year as a 'year of knowledge' I just didn't count on that knowledge being so complex and life altering.  So now everything is up in the air and swirling above my head in a huge mess {I was walking outside the other day and I looked up and there was a little patch of blue right above me, but all around it there were a whole lot of nasty fluffy black clouds, I had a little bit of fun naming the clouds... website designing cloud, art show cloud, gallery cloud, work cloud  etc...} I am positive this is all part of some sort of process that I need to go through and as hard as it seems now I am determined to see it though and push forward a little bit more every day.

new stuff...

Garden bugs

pirate girls

I can't believe we are nearly half way into April... I have been very busy in the last month working through my online course and on a few new projects. These little characters above have been one of the projects which I have been developing to submit to a card company in the UK.  They were so much fun to play around with and I have a whole lot if new ideas for them as well.  I will let you know how I get on, although they did say on the website that they may take up to three months to get back to people... so will see.
