My heart breaks with all the pain being felt in the world at the moment. It’s quite strange because here in Australia, the days are sunny, life is calm and we’re returning to some semblance of normality as lockdown restrictions ease. But at the same time, across the world, news reports depict scenes of rage,
This Mother’s Day is going to be the strangest Mother’s Day we’ve ever seen, and that includes the time I witnessed a punch-up between family members over a mother’s day lunch (true story! Also, just to clarify, not my family members). Here in Sydney, we’ve had our lockdown restrictions eased slightly over the past week,
Have you ever found yourself stuck in a rut but haven’t been in the right headspace to pull yourself out? I feel like this has been me for the last year at least. Secretly, I’ve always longed to create the kind of painterly artworks I see other artists dream up; art that’s full of layers,
It’s crazy and scary how much has changed in the space of a month. At the start of March, we had just gotten over the worst of the bushfires and I was looking forward to autumn outings in the cooler weather. Fast forward to now and the world is in lockdown. Fred and I are
March is all about rainbows this year! We just had Mardi Gras, St Patrick’s Day is on its way and there’s a whole week of on-again-off-again rain ahead… the perfect conditions for rainbow spotting. 🙂 After a crazy summer filled with bushfires, I’m really looking forward to the cooler weather and the change in seasons.

Why doesn’t life come with a pause button? February traditionally means Valentines Day, but those of you who know me
I don’t know if it’s the turn of the decade (say what??) or the fact that the next 10 years will make up most of Lauren’s childhood, but lately I’ve been getting nostalgic for things that I loved from when I was a kid. Like Rainbow Brite and Sweet Secrets lockets and Popples. And don’t
Can I get an OH JOY for my favourite time of year? I’m beyond excited because this is the first year that Lauren’s going to understand what Christmas is about (sort of). It’s going to be so. much. fun. 😀 I’ve been looking so forward to making this month special for her, that I’ve already
Yikes, November’s wallpaper is a bit late, sorry! We went away on a holiday with a few friends and I got totally distracted by the balmy weather and beautiful beaches. I was too side-tracked to draw even – believe it or not, I didn’t pick up my sketchpad the whole time I was away! Now
Long time readers will know that I’m hopeless when it comes to Halloween. I don’t like blood, I don’t like being scared, heck I don’t even like the colour orange. I suppose it’s no surprise then that this month’s wallpaper is cute and rainbow-coloured. But it’s got a halloween theme so I score some points
The weather’s been completely miserable over the last couple of weeks, which has been hard because Lauren’s finally getting to the stage where she wants to move, explore and be outdoors. (I say ‘finally’ because we’ve had some delays with Lauren’s gross motor skills, which up until now has limited what she can do outside.
