Sometimes things are hard

And some days i worry about far too many things. Today has been one of those days, for no real reason.

To try and raise some money for SanFrancisco I have added some original paintings to etsy. Some of these I had planned to hold onto forever... The two 'Eating Ghosts' paintings that inspired my Flickr user name, in particular. These paintings are very special to me, and i hope i can find them a great home.

Here & here.

Things to eat

A while ago, my mum gave me a recepe for naan bread. I tried it out the other day, and was very surprised at how well they came out! I'm normally a bit rough with cooking/baking, so anything that requires any sort of precise measuring doesn't work so well.

Here's my dough. In my lovely Mason&Cash mixing bowl.
It was my first time using it, too.

Wal used to work at a pizza place, so i got him to do the

After leaving it to rise for a while.

I made them little.. because.

yum yum yum

Anyway they turned out so good so i wanted to show them off. I had them with curried vegetables and tofu omnomnom. I made way too many so now my freezer is full of frozen dough-lumps.

Some new things

I just finished this little brooch -

He is a little larger than my other brooches, and is for sale on etsy now.

I also got around to photographing my new cards.. they aren't for sale yet, I'm waiting for some nice envelopes to arrive to go with them. But here is a sneaky peek at one of them

Etsy Sale finishes on Wednesday the 25th.

Buy stuff fast before it goes back to full price!

Also I just noticed I'm up to 50 followers on my blog, so thanks to all the new people who are following me xx

Here is a sketch i am working into a painting right now. The blur on the left is my friend's address.. i didn't think she'd want everyone to be able to read it. I think i really need to get an arrow tattoo... maybe when i'm in portland? Maybe even from Ryan Mason if i can get an appointment.

I spent most of today making badges.. they are off to far away places in the next few days. I also put some on etsy.I also got some things from in the mail today. The mini cards are such neat little things.. even if i didn't really need them. I got some greetingcards from them as well, just as a bit of an experiment, and they are nice too.

Tomorrow is tickets-buying day. We want to stop in exciting places on the way to SanFransisco... does anyone have any suggestions? We will be stopping somewhere in Australia (i think we actually have to, even though we don't mind) but maybe somewhere sunny and exciting?

Etsy Sale

My etsy store is re-open and full of things at heavily discounted prices. 20-40% off everything!

Any purchase gets you an extra entry into the brooch giveaway, too, which has a week left.

I've got some new stockists lined up, too, which is pretty nice. A shop in Auckland, and some online places. I need to start saving money for San Fransisco so any sale profits are going towards that.

I dropped my giclee prints designs off at the print shop the other day and they should be ready tomorrow and it's very very very exciting! I will probably take a million photos of them.

Anyway my cat is demanding attention so I'd better go play with her.
