Hi gals, my website up and running after a pretty long haul. I went the DIY route and it was a big learning curve. I'd love your feedback.  Just click on the pic!

My news: I have a solo show in a window space in Sydney in November which I'm really excited about. I'll post some images when that happens. I also have a book of my photography being published soon which is a dream really. Hoping for a Sept/Oct release.

I don't know if you follow Les soeurs on FB but Katie posted about an article in a French mag recently and it featured a picture of the workshop I (we) did - such memories. We had such a great bunch of people in that workshop. Brought it all back. Hope you're all doing well.

almost one year ago

I was just going through some old photos and found this one - can't believe it's almost one year since our Julie Arkell workshop and exhibition at Petite Violette. Time flies!

merchant & mills

Here's a gorgeous short film sent to Petite Violette by one of our favourite suppliers, Merchant & Mills. As soon as I saw it I thought of the Pantry Violets - it's worth taking a few minutes to watch, I think you will love it!

Watch the short film here.

birthday goodies

July 1st was my friend Laura's birthday.
She is one of those people who has enough of everything.
None of us needs "more stuff"....
... but how does one resist?

 I made her this "forget-me-not" pin
The photo is not so great,
but the pin is nice.
I need to make some more like it.

I have also been cutting a lot of paper.
I am practicing for my class at Briancon.
This is the card I made for Laura....

Hope you are all well.
