Holidays pt8

The first half of the holidays have gone wayy too fast. I feel as though i've barely done anything aside from the house party the weekend of TAFE finishing, Monday shifts, cheese and wine with Luke and Ross last tuesday, visit to the Lass to see some bands Thursday, house lounging with Lara and dinner at Nins on the Friday. This week is going too fast. 

Today Luke and I went to the shops and bought season 3 + 4 of Buffy the vampire slayer, season 1 of Weeds, The National's new album 'high violet' and a record player. I'm pretty sure I'm going to pass out from all the new exciting things we've purchased the past couple of days!

Tomorrow I am going to make some things to put in my Etsy store.

Holidays pt7

Last holidays I had photos for pretty much everything I did, however these holidays have been unphotographed due to my broken camera. I went on a Sydney adventure yesterday with Luke for our first wedding anniversary to buy vinyl and cafe hop and had a fantastic day aside from a lousy lentil burger from the Blue Fig Cafe. Being the unorganised pair we are, we missed both of our early alarms, woke up at the time we were suppose to be in Sydney, were too laid back in getting ready and left no time for breakfast or morning coffees, we got off the train at Newtown and went to the first cafe we saw which turned out to be a mistake.

After that we went to
Gallery Serpintine and I bought some mother fracking COATTAILS! I'm pretty sure they've already changed my life..

We bought some vinyl - The Lemonheads, La Bamba soundtrack, Tom Waits & Black Sabbath. We also managed to find a copy of American Psycho (which seems like there would be an abundance of but there actually isn't. We've spent the past 2 weeks trying to find it), and the new Grizzly Bear cd. I also picked up a 2nd hand copy of Belle De Jour, a book about a Parisian hooker/housewife.  

After we got home from Sydney, we had a cute little dinner at The Depot which was amazing, I would suggest their roasted vegetable salad with grilled haloumi and mojo verdi dressing. It was dreamy. Then we came home and had cups of tea and watched American Psycho. It was a quaint anniversary.

Tomorrow, well technically its
today, is mine and Luke's one year anniversary - married for a year! Yay! We are off to Sydney tomorrow to have lots of coffee, have a lovely little lunch, search for some sexy second hand books, start our vinyl collection and frolic in the city for day. And end the day with dinner and drinks. Maybe even a game of phase ten if I'm lucky

The last assignment I did was designing an Australian stamp series for a theoretical client - Australia Post. I did my series on Australian Butterflies. I am never keen on anything butterfly related, but I was opting for something simple and quick. However, I became a little mooshy for these guys, there are some absolutely breathtakingly beautiful butterflies. I hope my Grandmother leaves me her butterfly collection

I was quiet pleased with my butterfly vector drawings, so I thought I would share them with you all:

Lets catch up pt 2

I haven't quiet had the time to tend to this blog as much as I would like to, fracking TAFE work and assignments. However, it is holidays now! I have been on holidays for a week now, and oh my how it has flown! I hope the next two weeks go very slowly.

So far..

79 had a house party last Saturday, it was fantastic for many reasons. Those being, no more TAFE for three weeks, drinking, little friend hangs with the cute friends who came, mixed cds, cheese rings & fairy bread and drunken fun. It was also my new hurr cuts debut. We didn't really take photos, but here are a few snaps taken in my room,

The next day Lara, May Flower & I house dwelled, drank tea & sat in the sun. 

The rest of the week was, work on Monday, handing in the rest of my assignments Tuesday arvo and hanging with Maud. He had Tues, Wed & Thursday off work. We went to see some bands at the Lass on Thursday night and came back to ours for drinks and hangs. On Friday, Lara and I talked all day, drank tea and ate toast. It was a lovely, quaint day which ended with dinner at Ninny's house and wine and cheese!
