Time has gone by so quickly! And I'm amassing gigantic amounts of jewellery bits and pieces without actually getting down to it yet.. Oh my.. With the blink of an eye it's already the third month of 2011! Yes yes I'm getting down to it.. but woe is my finding of time and inspiration.

Fret not! I'll be back with more pieces! Till then, I'll be checking my emails every now and then so don't hesitate to send in your enquiries/comments!

Went to the Grampians early last week during the September hols. It's just north-west of Melbourne city, about 2 hours drive? It's a breezy, well-conserved place with animals, trees, and pleasant people! On Day 1 we climbed the Chautauqua Peak Loop which was a wonderously skilful climb where you needed to know your footing pretty much. One of my best climbs! Totally got me reminiscing about my wild adventures in Vietnam Sapa, also known as Home Above the Clouds. A very pretty, very in-touch-with-nature place with plenty of culture to experience. The air is cool and fresh, and pretty soon I was longing for hot food which I got! Yes I climbed the mountains there! Rice fields and crops surrounded us in the chilly weather - aboslutely out of this world!
What wouldn't I give for one of these!

So in Gramps we went to several other lookouts and to the Pinnacles on the final day. Adventurous. I honestly do prefer scaling rocks to ascending stairs, just because they're more fun to navigate. Look at this narrow path we had to take! I call it the 'One-way Lane'. We stayed at this hostel called Tim's Place which is really homey and comfy at the same time! Met Pudding, the dog of Tim's! Also loved the den they had, which was filled with comfy chairs and a large-screen TV, complete with views of the scenery! (in its background you can see the tent where I stayed at for the second night :D)

Oh! And a little surprise as to what I'll share with you soon.. but check out Operation Christmas! I JUST had to join after I heard my friend was doing it. It's so happy! Having seen some of those living conditions out there(from my trips) I would totally want to fork out a lil contribution. So those in Aussie/NZ, go ahead and make your contribution too! (deadline applies) It's only filling up a shoebox and imagine the pleasure a child will get upon receiving it! +)

Did you see what was up on the news today! Online news, that is.

That's the European Beard Judging Competition! I honestly do wonder how the judges make their choice. Is it just the looks? Or even the texture? Are they allowed to touch? Imagine the amount of styling gone into achieving a particular look!

Okay, I'm upping my determination to keep this blog going! Just a litte space to share the view of the world in my eyes, a corner to share my life, and itsy bitsy things that do matter.

Cute ceramic owls from Harvey Norman! I'm so gonna get one before I end the term! (can't decide which to get, tho) (:

Was just wondering if my font is a tad small? Just a bit of fun to share (: Went for a jaunt at Rose St Artist's Market somewhere near town at Fitzroy, you can check out the website here:

We made french toast for breakfast/brunch on a fine Sunday. Goes lovely with honey! Chicken nuggets to fill up the meal.

And for now while I'm based in Melbourne, making birthday cards for friends back home is a fun thing to do. Weather's getting warmer! I can officially wear a t-shirt and shorts outdoors without feeling the chills! Just the other day we went to the lake with a mat, our books and some drinks to soak it all in. Really enjoying Melbourne's lovely people and weather, and the great art scene here! Am so tempted to visit every single food and art market all over!

Hey all!

Had a really fulfilling weekend - going to Paperrific craft convention in town and visiting the Camberwell market! The craft event was a blast! Full of friendly people, free make-and-take sessions (which made the 8bucks entry fee worth it) and plenty of art eye candy! Take a load of the pics of beauuuuuttiful art pieces I saw at the craft place! There'll be another bigger art/craft exhibit in October, so I'm really looking forward to that because it'll have other mediums (e.g. knitting) of art too! So pretty and so much passion has gone into each and every piece, do enjoy!

The really pretty miniature house
Make and take session
