Well today I went to check out the new exhibition at the Artspace, and found this awesome local exhibition by Tracey Robb a Mackay local. She dose some fancy crochet work. In the large gallery they had a First Nations exhibition that will all the dots and stripes reminded me of patterns in beadwork so that was also cool. I picked up some small postcards and a lovely pin.
Unfortunately when I got out of the Artspace I looked at the back of my car and was like WTF where is my number plate? look at the front of my car also no number plate.
Now they were there before I left home so had to have been stolen in Wood street, while I was catching up with my aunt and as I had approached my car from the side had not noticed the missing plates. Unfortunately I had parked out of the camera zone so it is unlikely that they will find the bugger who stole them. I called my aunt and she came to pick me up and we went to the police station to talk to an officer as I had questions and we also filed a report while I was there. The police officer was helpful but being the weekend I can’t do anything about not having plates until Monday and will more than likely have to pay for replacements on top of that.
Ok now let’s talk about something that dose not make me upset. I’m currently working on this small monster to add to my shapes series as I needed to work on something easy and making the triangles is super easy. I plan to finish a dress after this and then continue on with the fairy garland.
Yesterday was a computer day though today is kind of one as well. Anyway I ordered business cards with my details on them to hand out when people ask as both my parents have been on me about it. The cards should turn up next week.
Also I ended up getting a small art portfolio and spent most of yesterday organising to print pages off for it. The printing was ready to day and while the clarity is great all but one page has streaks through it. They are not super bad and I can still use all the pages thankfully but as I paid for the printing I’m not super happy that it’s streaky. I also noticed all the pages were streaked in the same spots so maybe they need to take a look at their printer. Oh well I’ll have to get my printing done somewhere else next time.
The Coffee and Hops photos look fab.
In more none beading news I actually went for a walk this morning, playing Munzee in the park near my house and then around the city centre for a few mins as I turned up early for lunch. I also found some cool street art in two alley ways. there was some really cool stuff which I will probs add to my insta story in the next 24h.
Oh and the other reason yesterday was a computer day is because I got an email saying that I’ve been accepted as a member of the Mackay Creatives Hub! yay. So I set up my profile and gallery with them.
You can click on the link and check out the hub’s page and the other artist and art groups that are apart of the group. I kinda feel like I should have started with this but can’t be bothered re writing my blog now.
Hope you’re having a better day than me. Lou.
