So according to the oral hygienist this morning kids are supposed to start making trips to the dentist from the moment they have all their milk teeth. I had NO idea. I really didn't. Did you? Well when I went to the clinic last year to make an appointment to remove the broken wisdom tooth with an exposed nerve that's causing me too much pain I asked when the right age is and she asked how old he is then said when I come in for a cleaning today...

I mentioned vaguely that I'm going to be attempting a 365 project in 2017. It's two days to go and I'm starting to wonder if I'm setting myself up for failure. Either way, I'm obviously going to try my absolute best NOT to fail. I'll be doing a mix of art styles for the project dependant on my mood at that particular time. Art is therapy for me after all. I was going to do a structured weekly theme and maybe I'll try stick with that but I'll probably...

Every year I set a reading goal. A number of books to try and read before the year is out. For 2013 I read 185 books according to GoodReads (actually I read more but a lot of them were re-reads and GoodReads doesn't count those) but then for 2014 I only read 20 books (with a few re-reads) and 2015 was 26 books with a few re-reads again. Sad sad sad state. Even though I know that it's still more than most people read in a year. This year was...

I haven't made new years resolutions since high school, because generally resolutions aren't stuck to. As that Phineas and Ferb episode where Doofenshmirtz finds out no one keeps resolutions points out. Big goals are also out for me because I get overly anxious that I NEED to reach them and then when I don't I feel like a complete failure which is why I started my bucket list of x amount small things to try do before the next birthday. What I do like to do though is pick a word,...

I know that many of you are celebrating today so for those who are, Fysh and I would like to wish you a very merry and blessed Christmas day filled with so much love and laughter you snort beer out your nose ;)  I spent the past 12 months crocheting Fysh a StampyLongnose pixel blanket in secret. For those who don't know, Stampy is a guy who plays and narrates minecraft on YouTube. With it I made him a messenger bag with a pocket for his tablet because he's always...

Fuck but 2016 has been a rough year and at one point I even told it to go deep throat a cactus but today changed up my thinking a little. Maybe cause today was a good day. My morning started designing a quick poster, handing over one of my sewn dolls and chatting with the director of the charity in Australia that I am going to be the 'in house' designer for next year. It's called Support The Girls Australia (I'll tell you all about it in its own...

So in 2017 I'll be attempting my very first 365 project and to help make it happen I was going to do a crowd funding thing but then thought perhaps Patreon was a better idea because long term I'd also like to exhibit the pieces from the project and also finish the book that is currently penned on napkins! What is Patreon : Basically Patrons help artists be appreciated and actually allow them to be the artist they are. I stuck at really explaining though so here's a video...

So recently Fysh and I went for an evening of absolute FUN at Canal Walk. If you're a local I'm sure you already know that every December for the past 10+ years they host a ice adventure over December. Bringing some snow fun to our summer holiday season. If you're new...

We needed to come up with a unisex gift under R100 for a christmas gift swap thing. I was going to crochet slippers out of odds and ends but then I was told it's numbered and we won't know who's getting our gift so shit that's not going to work cause you can't really make one size fits all slippers when there's men and women involved. So shit...
