Nightmare Before Christmas

Christmas decorations are always fun to make... thought I'd add a slight element of 'A Nightmare Before Christmas' into my wreath this year

Have a great Christmas!!

Heart Shooz

Pic by Simon
As a hand made experiment (inspired by the Sleigh Bells cover of course), I painted these heart shapes then the sequins were added and the delicate hand embroidery done by the talents of my girl - Peta Louise
What a team!!

Lets Go Ghosting

from a
Halloween here we come... time to go Ghosting again. Well not quite like the old days when as kids we'd dress up in white sheets and dark clothes and hang around the roadside, waiting patiently to jump out at the first passing car (please don't try this at home kids), which by the way were often very few and far between, and mostly just scare ourselves senseless.

Will have to try and make some of these for the doorway. Great idea from 
the site that first inspired this blog

Alice In Wonderland

“I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!”

Bran Van 3000

 Bran Van 3000|Glee first caught my ear while browsing in a store called Pie in the Sky on Cockburn Street, Edinburgh. Had to go and ask the store girl who it was she had playing, then go straight to Fopp on Rose Street to search it out... They kinda remind me of High Street Hostel. Well I did have them blasting through the discman headphones to block out the backpacker noise. 
The first five track sequence is the best!!!

Tell Her Tell Her Tell Her

Was lucky enough to catch a couple of these amazing Tarot cards (storyboard cards) as they floated down from the ceiling into the audience at the beginning of Karen O's mesmerising performance of Stop the Virgens at the Vivid Live festival in Sydney on the weekend.
