Did I buy the tea above because the packaging was awesome?
Of course I did. It was just what I needed to brighten the place up
and get me all inspired and keep feeding my lino printing obsession.
Those seed pod designs inside are all sorts of wonderful
and make me think of a good friend's love of all things pod related
so put that together with the designs that look like they were printed and it is just awesome.
As an added bonus the tea is lovely. I love it when it works out like that.
Nothing worse than having something wrapped up in gorgeous packaging
and whatever is inside tastes like a trucker's armpit...or ear wax...
I hate earwax... it is just gross and weird
There were lots of wonderful non ear waxy things this week though...
Phants had to endure a train ride that saw a baby/ devil child
lightly, and creepily stroke the back of her neck the whole 30 minute trip
she is still shuddering at the mere mention of it a few days later
and of course leading to all sorts of shenanigans while we put ninja skills to use
and touch the back of her neck at every opportunity
it has been fantastic fun all round really so thanks you creepy devil baby for giving me a new fun weapon in my tormenting Phants arsenal
I also got to see a bloke's car getting glad wrapped
or saran wrap, cling, plastic, or sandwich wrap or whatever other bloody names it has
it was inspired... the entire car was being completely covered and snuggly wrapped in an entire roll of the stuff by a young guy outside a construction site as I walked to the post office. He was laughing like a madman as he circled the car and obviously having a great time doing it
and as a bonus I got to see the bloke who owned the car come out and promptly turn purple and start losing it as I made my way back from said post office
made my whole afternoon
I have also been busy drinking copious amounts of Buchi kombucha
while I await the arrival of my very own scoby/mother from that very company
when it arrives I can start making my own
and save me from bankrupting us buying the stuff
I can't tell you how excited I am at the thought of having my own baby scoby
I have already started thinking of names for the scoby/mother
I am wavering between Buchi Mama or maybe Alice
I considered Scoby Doo but that just seemed too obvious
I only have a few days before it arrives to work out a name though
so the pressure is on

I also got a few more cuppa paintings done
some illustration work sorted and out of the way
plus I started filming for my upcoming lino printing class
which launches in mid May
of course I got a bit distracted along the way with that filming
and made a video about all the different types of lino I have tried in the last few weeks
It is below if you want to have a squizz
So all round a fab week
I am off to consult a names list to find a suitable one for buchi scoby
of course if you happen to have a good one in mind let me know
Beryl perhaps...or maybe Felicia...?
happy painting all... xx
