I’m glad I made it to the market……

So… it was market day again today and yesterday was supposed to have been a day of making, prepping and packing…… but I just couldn’t quite muster up the energy and inspiration until late in the afternoon. Yesterday was my first ‘Day Off’ since we have come back from our holiday and there are still […]

It’s May already….. time does go quick when you are loving life!

So, it’s almost half way through 2017 and so much has happened. If you recall, late last year I was in pain, unable to spend much time on the torch and to tell you the truth, I seriously thought I might have to give up lamp working. When we were away on holiday in October/November […]

Kangaroo Island Inspiration – Authentic Kangaroo Island

If you have been to Kangaroo Island, you will know how pristine the waters are here and how the sandy beaches are just glorious….most of them have fine white/beige sand and we are so very lucky we can still walk barefoot along the sandy beaches here.

Busy weekend at Raptor Domain

So, it’s day 2 of 3 and it has been lots of fun so far. Still fighting to swallow normally and still having to be careful with what I can eat which is still reasonably soft food or a smoothie.. That’s okay… better than not to be able to eat at all. Only two more […]

Then came July and after that came August….

So…another busy couple of months with lots happening. I have finished most of the pieces for my collection to be exhibited during the Kangaroo Island Art Feast in October. It was challenging, working with recycled glass but I think the pieces came out pretty well. The theme for the exhibition is ‘Life On The Edge’ […]

Mad March…..it’s been busy, mad, crazy and fabulous…

Well….it’s been a while between posts (again) but for a good reason this time. X-change at the Santos Centre finishes today and the opening was a huge success, great turnout and lots of items were traded within the hours of the opening which was only just over an hour. We did learn a few lessons […]

“My Signature Style”……..

Someone recently asked me what my signature style is and that got me thinking. I am very much influenced by the colours of the ocean as I spent many years working on the beach at Seal Bay as a guide and it was the draw of the ocean that brought me to Seal Bay (via […]
