Halloween Print Sale!

(I grabbed this cool counter from

I'm beginning to see Halloween themed items in the shops! Eeek! My favourite!! 

As a kid, Halloween really wasn't celebrated at all in Australia. It was only something we saw on TV and movies. I always wished that I could dress up and go trick-or-treating and see all the spooky decorations like the kids in the movies. Fast forward 20 years and Australia has finally started to catch up. The shops are embracing Halloween merchandise and I even get to take my kids trick-or-treating now! Ok, to be honest, I'm vicariously living my Halloween dreams through them.

To get in the spirit of the Halloween season, I thought I would put 5 of my "Halloweeny" prints up for sale.

Hubby and I are back from a quick whirlwind trip to Melbourne for my 30th birthday. We had the BEST time - eating like royalty, relaxing in our beautiful hotel (The Blackman) and exploring the streets of Melbourne and St Kilda.

Some highlights were:

  •   Riding a bike along St. Kilda Pier, where my grandparents met over 60 years ago.
  • Seeing "The Block"! We planned on having a sneaky look out the front and totally fluked it that it was "Open for Inspection" day! We couldn't believe our luck. We got to meet the lovely Shelley Craft, and The Block contestants, and walk through all of the apartments!

  • Seeing Rama Nicholas' one woman musical comedy "After Ever After" at the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

It was great to get home and see my babies! I miss them so much when I'm away from them. At the same time it was a much needed break. I'm feeling recharged, refreshed and re-inspired!
So far this week I've been busy getting orders up to date, and I finished the mermaid painting I was working on at Comic Con. Some of you may have already seen her! I've popped her up for auction on eBay HERE:

I've also thrown up a few prints up for auction starting at 99c this week - just to spark some interest :) You can view them all HERE.

Well, it's back to reality for me now. There's nothing like school holidays to bring you back to reality after a short break away! :) Wish me luck.

Oz Comic Con Brisbane 2014

It's now Tuesday and I'm still feeling tired from Comic Con on the weekend! We had a blast. I met so many lovely people. I sold out of a couple of designs ("Sugar Skull Princess", "Snow White in the Enchanted Forest" and "Taurus" - must be lots of Taureans around!). Plus, lots of sign-ups to my email list.

I've never done an "Artist's Alley" at a convention before, so I had no idea what to expect. There were so many brilliant artists there, at first I wondered if I was out of my league! They all made me feel very welcome though.
My first day in Artists Alley!

My postcards proved to be popular too! The lovely @Jesso88 instagrammed this pic of her 5 framed postcards when she got home:
A cool way to display them!

The important question everyone's asking though...did I get to see Orlando Bloom? The answer is YES! but only a quick glimpse. I barely moved from behind my table for the whole weekend, but I did manage to do a quick run up to the back of the room to see him in the flesh. I was about 10m away? So yeah, let's just say Orlando and I worked together in the same room over the weekend, shall we?

Yesterday I planned to rest and unpack, but the Universe had other plans. I had to take Baby A to the Dr because he has conjunctivitis, then there was grocery shopping, school pick ups...the house looks like a bomb has hit it. So today I'm trying to play catch up. 

For any art orders made over the weekend, I promise they will be sent this afternoon or tomorrow morning at the latest. 

Wishing you all a fabulous week!
