A new blog for you to check out!

My friend Von has started a blog - finally - and I wanted to share it with you so you could head over and have a look. I met Von a couple of years ago now through Redbubble, and we were amazed to find that we live just 15 minutes apart. Von has been a constant source of encouragement and support and an invaluable source of creative discussions and feedback, for which I am so grateful. Our friendship has grown through our love of coloured pencils and bright colours but it has become so much more than that and I know Von is there on the other end of the computer any time I need her, which is a rare and valuable thing these days. I love Von's fresh approach and sense of fun that she brings to her work. It reflects her sunny outlook on life perfectly.

I hope you head over and check out her blog at It is a great read and I know you will enjoy it.
For me the gerberas are coming along slowly as other things have taken over and gotten in the way a little bit. I have madly been getting things ready to restock at The Collective Store before the Wynnum Up Late event tomorrow night. We also have our reveal for the Monthly Painters' Challenge tomorrow and I have the finishing touches onto my work ready to go, though I am actually a little nervous about this one for some reason. A bit of a departure, especially in my palette and I found this topic quite a challenge. Can't wait to see what everyone else has done though and that is the fun part of the day watching them all pop up on our sight. There is a tab on the sidebar which will take you to the other participants so if you have time head over and check them out also!

Dear Trace,
Thankyou so much for the lovely words, you are a true and very much valued friend. I have always appreciated your help and this is just the best thing.

As always, just love those bright flowers, such a depth to them.

Thanks again,
