I found the Gremlin that keeps stealing my socks and goggles! He was hiding in, surprise, surprise the sock basket!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Sketch of the day no 189: Purple water by Asprey

Old habits die hard, back to my sketches of perfume bottles. They are just so lovely to draw. I’ve just raided my bathroom and realised I have way to many perfume bottles.

They must be growing in numbers somehow. I seriously didn’t realise how they got there. It must be my pet goblin. He likes to steal socks, and only one of each sock pair, and in return he gives me perfume bottles? Anyone else have a goblin problem in their home?

(…and I think he stole 2 pair of swimming goggles cos I couldnt find them this afternoon when I went for a swim.)

 

Sketch of the day no 188: Celadon aromatherapy essential oil burner

I love buying stuff I don’t need! (I’ve been cutting down though) I bought this Celadon essential oil burner in Chiang Mai. I love Celadon ware, I keep on adding to my collection everytime I go to Thailand. I used this a lot when I first bought it, but the novelty has worn off. Luckily it’s pretty enough to just sit on the table.

Sketch of the day no 187: Chinese Tassel

I love love love tassels! It’s rather embarrassing how many I own! I don’t know what it is that draws me to them. I have one in my car, a few I hang on my cupboards and doors, a few on my bags, one on my jacket zipper and ear rings! ;p

This one has peonies embroidered on the cushion and has 3 tassels hanging off it. It’s just so pretty. Tassels make me happy.

Sketch of the day no 186: Matahari Stickman for Halloween

I was partying so much over at the other blogs that I almost forgot to post up my sketch of the day! This is the second and final in the series stickman for Halloween. Maybe I should put the two together and see what happens. This is really moving away from what I normally draw. No doubt a bit of a change is always a good thing!

Sketch of the day 81: Beach huts

In the theme of summer. Today’s sketch of the day are beach huts. I was in St Kilda, Australia last year and took loads of photos of these colourful beach huts. Each one is unique and colourful, they really make the beach look fun and pretty.

This is a reblog. First published on Jul 12, 2013. Since I’m still on the beach, I thought why not keep the beach theme. I will be back soon xoxo

Ive been seeing other talented artists and illustrator posting really awesome Halloween themed work. Here is my effort. I also can’t draw figures so I found a compromise and here is my Halloween stickman! The stickman has the head of my logo ;p

How to Refashion, Restyle, And Rewear Your Old T-Shirt

T Shirt refashion

I’m a bit of a hoarder. I hate to throw good clothes away (even to charity) unless it’s too small for me. I have a ton of oversized t shirts that I have worn to death, but they are so soft and comfortable. I also have a ton of free t shirts I get from going to events.

Here is what I do to refashion them. I used to just cut the sleeves and the neckline with a pair of really good fabric scissors. I recently discovered this awesome new tip. Cut the bottom of your t shirt into strips to make instant tassels! No sewing. It literally takes 5 minutes to cut them with a pair of scissors. I’ve made 3 so far and I’m really loving the new look. My friends have already asked me to make some for them. (Maybe sometime next year ;p)

It’s a great little project to update your wardrobe! Try it and let me know what you think!

Happy weekend x
