Getting things done.

my over crowded display case.

Ok I know I say this a lot but I have been so busy. A good busy though, this week mum, kea and I did a big spring clean, I’ve been updating all my passwords, making sure they are all strong and unique. Kea helped me link accounts to make it easer for people to buy my handmade items. I got my first covid vaccination and dad also got his. My tax is done. I have a checklist of ticked off items and best of all I applied for an exhibition late next year and I was accepted! YAY!

I’ve even made a list of what I will need to sort out for the exhibition. I’m a woman on a mission.

In the top photo is my mini pineapple plate from the first AWC class at Snitty in a box along with a random selection of my beadwork in my display case. I’ll be posting about the AWC classes on Sunday afternoon after the latest class which will be watercolours. If your in mackay and are looking for something interesting to do on Sunday then check out the AWC page below.

Last week my Aunt and Uncle were in the area so I spent time catching up with them and am now drinking tiny Piccolo lattes as a compromise in reducing the amount of milk I drink. They are much better than drinking black coffee.

Black and White Vase

I’ve also been getting beadwork done if a little slower than usual. I completed my first vase but didn’t have time to do a decent post before. I’ve been working on adding more detailed designs into my portfolio, though I will still continue to create work focusing on form and colour as its really my first love. I will also be working on some different things for my exhibition next year which I’ll continue to update you on over the next year as I prepare for it. And I’ve printed of an application for my local Artspace for 2024-2025 program so keep your fingers crossed for me.


Hum What else? Well next week is school holidays so I’ll have less hours at work so I plan to make use of that extra time to get more beadwork done. I’ve also been working on some Christmas orders and making baubles to use as examples and to sell come Christmas.

Well I want to get some more beadwork done before I head off to work so I’ll it at that.
