Hello Old Friends

So, I recently remembered my long-lost little blog, and I propose we have a catch up!
Over tea, preferably.


Well, Really quite a lot has happened since we last spoke.
Here's a point-form summary:
  • Finished my last year of school
  • Was invited to interview for med school
  • Cried of excitement
  • I got accepted into Bachelor of Medicine/Surgery course
  • Died of excitement
  • Studied a lot
  • I got an iPhone (MAJOR MILESTONE!)
  • Went to a ball

And more recently...
  • I went to see my boyfriend's band play at a magazine launch (just last night)

They are actually SO GOOD!
(no bias whatsoever, hahah)

So lots of exciting things have been happening recently. What I haven't done a lot of though, is make things. And I feel that that's just a little bit sad.

Aww :(

BUT! I plan to make a beautiful present for my friend. Here are the beginnings...

So hopefully I will have much more to update you on soon.
What have I missed since I last logged in? What have you guys been doing and making and creating? (I actually do want to know! - Link me in a comment or something.)

Space Shoes

I just wanted to let everyone know that I'll no longer be making space shoes (apart from the orders to which I've already committed). My reasons for this are varied, but the main themes are that I don't really find joy in painting them any more - I feel kind of like a machine, and I really have to concentrate on studying, as I'm in my final year of high school and have set my goals pretty high. Thank you to everyone who has liked the shoes, bought a pair or generally supported me in any way. It means a lot to me, and I've gotten further than I ever thought it would. I will still be selling other things from time to time over at my etsy shop, and probably more space shoes in specific sizes, until I clear out all my stock.
For those still chasing a pair, you can buy similar ones here, from kustom kix.

Life lesson: There will always be someone better than you.

Wedges handpainted by Kustom Kix.
I've seen these before, but I always thought they were photoshopped. They're not.
How amazing is that!?
I'm blown away. Props to KK for their amazing work.

Space Walks

Here are the latest space shoe photos. I'm a little excited for this Sunday night, when they'll be photographed by an actual photographer for a local magazine. Eeeee!
P.S. anyone looking to buy a necklace should know both have been sold, but I might be making more soon.

Nooks & Crannies

I love these nostalgic small spaces made by Chris from Get Pretty Things.

What's your favourite book?

Geometric Necklaces

I've been busy! In the past couple of days I made these felt necklaces and did a little amateur photo shoot with some space shoes (I'll show the photos in another post) and to top it off  I started my last year of schooling today, juggling a photo shoot requests from a local magazine and 9 pending space shoe orders! I've been busy and I'm gong to stay busy apparently.
I have, however, found time to make these felt necklaces the newest addition to my Etsy store. I hand cut them from sheeted felt, generating the asymmetric pattern as I worked, making each truly unique. The 'thicker' one in the second and third photographs has already sold, but the thinner one is still available here and ready to be shipped.

Hi Mum,

Hi Mum,
I know you read my blog from time to time. It's nearly Christmas, did you know? Wow, the year goes so fast...
Anyway, in other news, I love this white Diana Mini camera, which is actually compatable with the white Diana F+ flash. How about that? You can get it all in an easy set (including extra film!) from the Australian and New Zealand Lomography Store for AUD $250 (plus $15 shipping). Luckily I've done some research, and found that you can buy the same bundle from the U.S. Lomography store for  USD $183.16 or drop the films to bring the price down to US $131.25 (prices including shipping and discounts).
*hint hint*
Merry Christmas Xx

Sometimes I feel like this blog is a little impersonal. As a reader, do you avoid, or are you interested in personal posts? I don't even know if I'd be able to do them well, or if I'd have anything to talk about - but what would you think if I posted a little more personality?

Cleaner Science

I'm such a fan of sweet sciencey goodness and these cute soaps from cleaner science certainly fit the bill.They come in all different scents - coconut, chocolate, mango sorbet, raspberry lemonade and more. Um, YUM. And there's even glow in the dark ones!
So. Awesome.
