Love these gorgeous botanical original collage drawings from artist Susan Black on Etsy.

The artist uses coffee stained paper, ink, gouache, vintage paper and drawings on cold press water colour paper.

Natural body products

I've been checking out different ideas for Christmas and birthday presents. My mum loves hand cream and given she has just about everything, I'm on the lookout for something natural for this year's present. As luck would have it, she really likes the Kangaroo Island hand cream I purchased while on holidays earlier this year. I'll have to see if I can get a tub by post. I'm so over the department store products that cost a fortune and last half the time the sales assistant tells me they should. I've heard good things about these products and will try them out over coming months to see how they measure up on the skin.

NOUGAT LONDON (she loves this one)




and my favorite tags for gift boxes

It's been a while

Yes its been a while since I've posted. I've finished Illusion ... well almost. Last chapter is imminent. Also doing my Masters in Creative Writing, a real buzz.

That aside, the house is cooking along. We need to do some gardening and of course the floors for some reason could do with a thorough cleaning. I can't seem to get the boards clean enough - what with two dogs, a cat, an 8 year old and her friends and our noisy Alexandrine.

Michael has put up shelves in the garage which has helped with the clutter. Given its our laundry as well it all helps.

I'll post some pics when I get around to it.

Tonight we had a great dinner at Gaucho's in the city. Steak and prawns ... yum.
