It also came framed in a black wooden frame, which I love!
When I entered the competition I said to my husband, "If I win that print, I'm going to hang it right there."
So I did!
If you want to purchase one of these for yourself or take a browse through her gorgeous range of cards, prints, & bookmarks, you can find Michelle's store Here. Perfect for Christmas pressies.
Also drop by & have a read through her Blog at: Michelle's Art & Photography.
One very talented & generous artist indeed.

The pickle is rather blue which means it needs to be changed, but I try & use it for as long as I can!
All the plastic tubs are orders that I have. Each order gets it's own plastic tub with the customer's name & what item it is written on a post-it note on the front.
This way, I am organised & all the pieces don't get mixed up!

A BIG thank you to Loretta - an extremely generous & kind soul. ❤
I doubled the amount I raised last year & am really quite chuffed!
Nationally $502,271 was raised! That's a lot of cupcakes!
Until then you could always join in on "Happy tails day" by simply purchasing merchandise from the exclusive Happy Tails Day range in September and October here!

Okay, so I'm a little bit behind on my blog posts!
I have found it a little hard to get back into the swing of things as I'm feeling so rested & relaxed!
But, I do start back at my other job this week, so I'm sure that will take care of that!
When first arriving in Paris, we were completely lost & found it hard to communicate with people.
With the help of a kind gentleman we finally found our hotel. (2 suburbs from where we were) Our room was so teeny-tiny, I was starting to feel a little dubious.
After a good night sleep & a few hours translating common phrases on Google translate, our week in Paris was amazing.
The patisseries, the fresh salad baguettes, the people, the fashion, the patisseries, the sites, the love in the air, the patisseries........
I would definitely go back for sure.
The highlight: I studied art history in tafe & college for 6 years & to finally be standing in front of the Lourve was a rather emotional experience for me.
Plus I got to meet Mona Lisa!

On this holiday, I was hoping maybe to shed a few kilo's & tone up a little with all the walking & site seeing we'd had planned.

We have spent the first week sight seeing all the great sights London has to offer & I have fallen in love with all the old weathered buildings.
It's not as expensive as I'd thought it would be here.
The food is so cheap, so we have been pigging out. Especially on all the different chocolate bars that we don't have in Australia!
Whether or not it was an engagement ring is still uncertain, but let me say it is gorgeous!
I'm not usually into cluster set diamonds, but the centre rectangular diamond with the four triangular cut diamonds surrounding, are beautiful.
So we're finishing up here & are catching a train tomorrow afternoon to Paris.
Yay, it has always been a dream of mine to go to Paris. I can't wait.

When I'm doing long hours in my studio I like to have something to listen to, something to keep me entertained.
The radio got too repetitive as did my limited cd stack.
I tried a small tv but got distracted & ended up watching whatever was on instead of working!
Audio books were great, but I was going through nearly one a day - very costly.
I have since found Podcasts put together by some crafty ladies & am loving them.
Nearly everyone has some form of mp3 these days, so for all of you crafting away alone in your studios here's a few Podcasts to download & listen to.
CraftSanity - Hosted by Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood
Craftcast - Hosted by Alison Lee
Craftypod - Hosted by Sister Diane
They interview an array of talented artist/crafters from all mediums, so there's something for everyone.
You can also subscribe to them in iTunes so they will be automatically downloaded for you!
