Here's my latest hitRECORD challenge entry - The Shoe Girl. Based on a line from this poem, I created my little girl. "Sally who only just turned two, pulls a rabbit from her shoe." Magic Town - REmix, CMather She is confused. On one hand, she's (literally) holding a bunny she has just miraculously pulled out of her shoe. A trick she's learnt since a she was a year and a half. On the . . .
I recently joined the Creative Play Challenge by Jennie from Little Girl Designs, which provides you with a new prompt each week for a year. Sounds good? Join me! Here's the post about it. It's such a great find as I've been looking for a creative community to be a part of for a while now and I'm glad that I stumbled across this one. Do let me know if you come across any others that I can check . . .
I went to the Tim Burton exhibition in Shanghai and for those of you who are based in this city, please go and visit it. It's one of my top three all-time favourite exhibitions together with Yayoi Kusama and Cai Guo Qiang. The amount of work that he's created throughout his years is incredible and so inspirational. A smorgasbord of whimsy, creepy and magnificent - all in one place. One of . . .
What do you do when you have an hour to burn before some of your favourite people touchdown in Shanghai? #myhandsneedmorespeed #drawingliketheflash I always heard that according to psychologists, if your friendship lasts past 7 years, it will last forever. I just tried to find scientific proof of this online and in all honesty, the most credible source for this was either Pinterest or . . .
I've discovered a new obsession: HITRECORD. Basically, it's an open-collaborative production company established by Joseph Gordon-Levitt - this innovative community includes over 100,000 artists of all disciplines (writers, ﬁlmmakers, musicians, etc.) adding 250 new members and 2,500+ new pieces of art every day. I have yet to explore it more but my two favourite parts about HITRECORD is . . .
Happy Valentine's Day! Despite being in a nearly 9-year relationship (say whaat), I've never really been one to celebrate Valentine's Day. I'm not one for roses, romance and heart balloon arches, and I don't see a need to celebrate my special day with the rest of the world. However, what Valentine's Day is wonderful for is that it gives you an occassion to tell the people closest to you . . .
When you say "sustainability", normally one of these three things pop to mind: Buzzword. A word thrown around without any real backing, just to be a part of the "green trend". Tree Hugger. We've all come across these people. The hippies that no one can really relate to. Guilt/Deflection. The problem's too big to fix to make a difference. Someone else will do it. As a result of this, it . . .
Happy New Year! May this year be a wonderful one. One where we learn more, create more, love more. Reach goals instead of simply making resolutions. Embrace change, spread kindness, and explore the unknown. I'm excited for the year ahead - enjoy 2016! . . .
IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY!! POST 5/7 It's been such an exciting week with celebrations all around - and finally THE DAY has come. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Made you lovely readers a little monster to accompany you during this festive season... May you all be as jolly as this little guy with plenty of feasting, love, and laughter all around. Happy holidays! . . .
Thank you for the laughs and smiles, and the unexpected surprises you threw in my direction. For all the new countries I got to visit, and the family and friends I saw along the way. You went by at a crazy speed but I've somehow managed to learn a few lessons while you flew past. 2014 - you were an amazing year. I'm looking forward to the year ahead and all the adventures that I'll get to have . . .
