This birthday has been the longest I've ever had. My daughter gave me a family party on Saturday night, the whole family were there including my step daughter who flew down from Queensland after she finished work.
My darling husband had this most amazing cake made for me. He took photos of one of my journals I had made and this local company made a beautiful mud cake then decorated it with edible ink. It matches my journal completely right down to the icing buttons and fabric. I think the top must have been digitally printed.
This is the journal
and this is the cake. The photo below shows the size compared to my hand, it was huge and delicious.
I'll be holding a brooch workshop from my home on the 20th June. The photo below shows the style, but you can chose from silver or brass and any colour combination of beads etc. If you're interested in attending please email me for details, my email address is in my side bar.
I'll also be holding a junk journal workshop from home in July. The photos below are various stages of the one I'm working in.
The journal is made from old envelopes, catalogues, junk mail, manilla folders, photo copies, anything to want to recycle. The class will include assembling the journal and making and binding it into the cover and techniques to decorate the pages when the journal's assembled. Again, if you're interested in attending please email me for details, I will be sending out emails to the people on my mailing list.
This page isn't finished yet, the girl was from a catalogue page, I still have to finish her face and arms. She was originally blonde, wearing a white dress.
I bought this lovely metal pot for my sister for her birthday but couldn't resist taking a photo of it next to the tulips. When I downloaded the photo I realised it made quite a nice image with our living area and kitchen in the background. I also took a rubbing of the pot before I wrapped it.
