My little girl is not so little anymore. Possible I may be in a teensy bit of denial so suddenly there’s a big time rush to get moving and get stationery. In the meantime I have found these fun but kind of not so practical items…

big wooden pencil sharpener holder suck uk
Giant pencil sharpener pencil holder by Suck UK spotted at Espresso 2108 Palm Beach. Used as sugar container. The lovely owner Sal has some very cute little bits and pieces on display. [They have a nice logo too, with a little help by yours truly] And great coffee. But that’s a given.

And there’s my nearly 8 year old. He’s moving up into Primary. So old school is not such a big novelty. Still cool though.

Pacman stapler from Santa, rubbers [or erasers if you prefer] from Freckles Avalon.

Thrifted j-me tape dispenser. Washi tape from Tabletonic.

And now I get to me. [She whispers finally] Left soon with a lot more time to myself.  I’m getting a little edu-macation too.
At the School. The super talented and multi-skilled Megan Morton’s project/ business located happily next to Koskela and Kitchen by Mike. I’m starting with an Instagram course, because I am addicted and, I apologise people, I have been spending a lot more time on IG  at the moment than blogging. It’s  fun and quick and my camera is in for repairs so I’m i-phoning it.  After this class I’m pretty keen to do a screen printing session with Rachel Castle [who so brightly puts the love in the coconuts]

So much to do… There and here. Everywhere.

So yes, a big week for all of us. Smiling and waving. And with a few tears probably.

Mmm travel. Distracted already. Where was I?

Can’t help but feel kind of ripped off that all these cool camera filter and grading apps once took me ages to set up on Quantel gear [the original ultra expensive Television graphics boxes] and then later Photoshop and After Effects.

Now even my children’s Kid Pix program blows me away with automatic animations, effects and audio. At the click of a single button. And now it’s 3D!

Anyway, whatever. Moving on…
The Interiors Addict recently did a 7 Day Instagram Challenge  which was so fun and v. inspiring.
#7Vignettes judged by Kara Rosenlund, super-stylist with her own vintage caravan of travelling wares. Swoon.

I used my iPhone, to be quick, to not take it too seriously
[I can over think it, often] and because my Nikon is a playing up.
