I want to run a raffle, but I'm not sure if I have enough people reading this blog to.

The prize will be a paper puppet and a little sewn something and a love-letter from me.

Basically if you want to be in the running, comment on this post with a small story about your favourite toy from childhood, and in a week or so I will put everyone's names in a hat and draw a winner.

Then I will send the parcel to the winner.

Ready... Steady... Go!

Matching Outfit!

It was Steve's Champagne Birthday on Saturday, so I made him a shirt and me a matching dress.

With monograms.

So that he always wears his heart on his sleeve.

Billy Goats Gruff

Some watercolours I have been working on.

We went to the Biodome and the Botanical Gardens yesterday. We started off with the penguins and puffins and then saw a beaver making a dam. The gardens were really lovely, there was an alpine rock garden, a Chinese garden, a grove of pines and a greenhouse with a big cacti and succulents section.

I Made Bread

We ate it in thick slices, hot with melting butter.

Pom Pom Hat

I made this hat for Steve so his ears wouldn't fall off during Montreal's bloody cold winter.
I just made it up as I went along.

Modeled here by Jordan, my sweet boy.

Meteor Shower

We went out to Mile End last night to watch the meteor shower. A bonfire was built and everyone gazed at the sky for a couple of hours.

I saw two shooting stars.

Yesterday I had a table at Expozine. I made some paper puppets that talked, had swinging legs, ate bugs, snotted snot and got rained on.

We got rained on as well, on the way home.

Click on the pictures to see them REALLY BIG!

Yo-Yo Ma


I made this dress for my year 12 theater monologue. The buttons, if you'll look closely, weave in and out of each other. The bottom is fringed with little red pom-poms. I found the fabric in the alleyway behind my house, and now all the buttons are cracked because I put the dress in a dryer.
I apologise for the weird photo, it's the day I cut off all of my hair, so i was a bit wacky.

Flowery Dress

Here is my friend Andrew, modeling a dress I made in 2007.

AND one fiver...

Owl for Sue

I made an owl for Steve's mum, because she loves owls. However when we went to post it, the bill was a bit steep, so we sent it in a friend's suitcase all the way back to Melbourne.

Flora the Snail

I was a snail for Hallowe'en. We handed out lollies to sweet little french trick-or-treaters and carved a pumpkin as I frantically sewed the shell and stuffed it with clothing and pillows!
